Comfortable recliners / Listening chairs?

    Well my parents are helping me redecorate my room, and part of that means new furniture.

    Right now I am in the process of looking for a listening chair. So far I am leaning towards a home theatre chair.

    Anyone have any specific home theatre chairs or other chair suggestions?

    Trying to keep it sub $1000 for a chair,

    Thanks!

    I love my Ikea "poang" chair. They come in all different colours of wood, with a variety of different cushions (replacable when they wear out) and are extremely comfortable.

    Those chairs look really comfy and the price is reasonable too. I think I may have to try one out. Thanks for the tip!!

    Man, I'd love to have one of those chairs. However my parents don't really see the need to buy me a $500 chair to listen to music in. :sigh: And it'll take me 2 months working at the grocery store to get that. And even then I'll blow it on a guitar or a new amp or some head phones [​IMG] before I get a chair. Oh well.

    I got a Costco leather recliner that works very well for me. It cost less than half your budget.

    Very comfortable.




    Doubt it...the Eames lounge actually doesn't have a head rest.

    Head rests are very important for listening to headphones then falling asleep and spilling your scotch all over your $4,000 chair.

    Are you thinking of a different Eames Chair because the Lounge does have a headrest.

    Like so many others, I would love to own one someday. And I thought it was very comfortable. You want lack of confort, sit in anything designed by Le Corbusier.

    With a budget of a grand, I would first search craigslist for used Scandinavian leather recliners and zero gravity recliners like those found at the Relax the Back store.

    It depends on how you sit in it. If you slouch a little bit, you can rest your head on the backrest. The Eames lounge was originally designed without a headrest...the thing that people generally think is the headrest actually supports the upper back...if you sit in it with your butt actually against the back of the seat, your head will generally go off the chair. However, if you are short or slouch a little bit, everything changes.

    Nonetheless, beautiful chair. My favorite chair of all time.

    Fair enough, the official site refers to it as a "high back", so I stand corrected

    Thanks for all the input, the problem is a need a pretty long chair (I am about 6' 4") and I need to have a headrest. We have one of those zero gravity chairs but not in leather, I may have to try one out at Brookstone.

    Also that Eames chair seems to be in a Modern furniture store and with my experience with stores in my area that carry those, I would struggle affording a lamp with my budget.

    Maybe I can convince my parents to get me a massage chair as a congratulations on finishing another year of school [​IMG]

    I am still leaning towards a theatre chair with cup holders like this:

    Just a single. I think its about 800

    I don't know where you live but please check out the lazy boy store. They have all sorts of options now. Much different than decades past. Awhile ago we redecorated the house and decided to go with the lazy boy store instead of the higher end options. Cheap and comfortable. It turned a stuffy living room into a room we actually wanted to spend time in. I'd definitely check them out if you're on a budget. It was a great choice if one can get past the preconceived notions.

    The 'Perfect Chair' comes in a long version for tall people.
