This wiki has been updated 20 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you're putting together a home theater, the chairs you choose are going to prove as important as the screen, projector, and sound system. After all, you won't be able to enjoy any film or television show if you're uncomfortable. The seats on our list offer you a range of features in addition to their comfort, including cupholders, built-in outlets, and ambient lights. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

February 12, 2021:

There are some really great and comfortable home theater seating options out there, and you can spend just about as little or as much as you want on one. The FDW Wingback is about as cheap as they come, while the Global Furniture U0040 and Flash Furniture Eclipse Series cost a bit more but offer a slight upgrade. Both the Cloud XS850 R3SM and Cloud XS850 R4LSM are durable and comfortable, although they don't offer any internal storage. For two or three people on a mid-range budget, it's hard to beat the Signature Design by Ashley Contemporary, and if complete luxury is your goal, and you have plenty of space and money to spend, the Seatcraft Diamante is one of the nicest options on the market.

If you need a couple more seats to accommodate kids, but don't have a ton more floor space, consider adding a floor chair for the smaller and more flexible members of the family.

For extra features and comfort, Seatcraft seems like the company to beat, especially for people looking for real leather options. There are still some surprising companies, as well, like Octane, whose seats are insanely comfortable.
