Brian, you would be pleased to hear, however, that our one outdoor romping cat is quiet enjoying it.


LOL I think you are describing the piece that I want to replace with these seats!

But seriously, give them a look. Pretty good build quality and price point. They have a few "quick ship" models that might just fit your needs. The custom order stuff starts to get expensive, but the quick ship stuff is considerably less.

Ya I briefly looked at those as well. Right now I think those Lane seats would do the trick, just debating if I want to fork out for real leather or just go with the bonded leather stuff. One thing about the room setup is you walk in from the rear so if the seats wore out you really wouldn't be looking at them much. Unlike a traditional living room where I definitely would spring for the real leather.

Not support really, not for many years anyways. However lets just say I have based pretty much most of my career trying to make the promises of salesmen actually work.

I'm pretty sure my epitaph will read, "He promised you WHAT???"

Amen, brother, amen.

Of course, I'm on the other side of that, being a customer who talks to sales drones.

Have you ever noticed that most sales guys look the same, at least in the tech biz?

Sounds like the 10 years I spent at my previous job. I had to master the ability of lowering customer expectations.

Well I ordered them last Monday and they arrived on Friday (would have been Thursday if it wasn't for the blizzard). I'm pretty happy with them overall considering I managed to get 5 chairs for under 2k. I was a bit worried when I first sat on them that they were pretty firm but that seems to help when sitting in them for a long period of time, at least with my back.

They definitely make the whole room look better IMO.

Looks great. My cat would make mincemeat of those in no time. Why I got cloth.

See this is why I would never have a cat, I'd just end up killing it. laugh

Very nice.

I wanted something like that but the wife wanted something a little less HT and a little more snuggly which in the end worked out ok.
