I broke the transformer on my power recliner

Seats Arrived Today
"Consider the seating to be better than most models from local stores made by Coaster. Storage and tray tables are a huge plus when you are shopping for theater seating. Have recommended this seat to many of my friends."

Big let Down
"We purchased these seats from this web site. They do a lot of work on the front end ensuring your going to be happy with the seats. We ordered top grain leather and power in this version. We had a few issues.
1: Strange smell something other than leather.
2: Not really sure its even top grain leather as there is no smell of leather at all. I think they sent us bonded.
3: I sent a picture of my couch (real leather) to the sales guy and he suggested these chairs would be a good match. They were not. They were way off, again because of either the poor grade leather or not actually leather.
4: These are made in China
5: They are not very comfortable.
6: Return shipping cost more then one of the seats: . The RETURN SHIPPING Fee would be $375 with re-selection and $475 without.
This was discounted 100.00 which the return shipping fees could be as much as 575.00 bucks! OUCH!!"

Lane 103 Matinee
"WE were very reluctant to buy these seats sight unseen but we are more than pleased our purchase. We purchased five curved row with storage and tray tables. My husband thanks me daily for buying them (he was VERY skeptical throughout the research phase before we ordered these). I would recommend them to anyone. Very comfortable, brown leather is soft and feels luxurious. They lull us to sleep every night!"
By ME from Alabama
"We were nervous making such an expensive purchase without being able to try out the chairs first. We bought a row of four. They arrived in less than a week, we're packaged very well, and delivered to the front door. Very comfortable and great looking leather. Very satisfied with purchase."
By Cavin from Texas

Best value for money
"If you do your research you will see this seat is the best value from a name brand furniture supplier. Packed with features like storage and tray tables there really is not anything for the same quality for less. Received my seats and would recommend this product!!"

NEVER AGAIN !!!
"I bought four of these back in September. A few days after they were delivered, we started having issues with the tray receivers. We contacted the Theater Seat Store about the issue and they set up for a technician to come out and fix it. We received a call to schedule an appointment as stated that it would be early November before they could get there. We then received another call a few days later stating it would now be December 4th. Yet....one more call to schedule for December 19th. Lo and behold, we received a call on December 3rd from a technician who expected to be at our house the next day. Of course we had rearranged our schedule (again) for the 19th and could not change days off that quickly. While waiting for our December 19th appointment, we get yet ANOTHER call to say they can't get to us until January 3rd.
Meanwhile, we are checking with Theater Seat Store the entire time who assures us we are all set for the 19th. The 19th comes, and now the 19th goes and no repair. The Theater Seat Store now explains that they don't set up appointments and they use a third party firm so they are not responsible. Finally, I receive a call this afternoon, AGAIN, to explain that they cannot get to us now until January 16th."
By Jon from Richmond, Virginia
"For full details, you can read the customer rating we just posted to the website. Short story - three of our four chairs have broken mechanisms after only four weeks of owning them. Your business has passed the buck, avoided answers, and given us the runaround regarding a repair appointment for almost three months. Unacceptable."
By Jon from Powhatan, VA

He is a credit to your company and I will recommend him a nd Interior Mark to my friends and co-workers for any home t heater needs they may wish to pursue."

"Great seats couldn't be more happier. Next time I'll go for the white glove."

One shortcoming of seat
"Seat is heigh for people 5'8" or shorter, unless you don't mind your feet dangling in the air and unable to cross in the normal seating positon.
Otherwise it's a handsom unit functionig well so far.
P.S. Manufacturer should consider lowering the seat approximatly 2"."
By Ara Melkonian from Arlington TX.
"Just order these chairs. Love them! I was not sure if I wanted to order something I have not seen in person. Just received them about a week ago. Was not disappointed at all."
By Denora Brown from Maryland
Bang for the Buck
"After doing lots and lots of research I finally took the plunge and ordered these seats. Originally I had ordered them manual recline, but my sales dude called and told me that they were on back order. Bad news for me. I told him that I was scared of getting electric recline, because these seats were replacing a 16-year old custom leather recliner sectional, and I was afraid that electric recline would not last as long as a manual recline. My sales dude (can't remember his name!), assured me that everything would be ok, and he even got me a 5-year extended warranty if I upgraded to electric... I did! Well horror of horrors, I recieved the Reno's and couldn't get 2 of the chairs to recline, so I called TSS and the person answering told me to look underneath the chairs and ensure everything was properly plugged in (duh!), well after re-securing 2 plugs everything was working fine! I got the 4-chair straight row, and am loving them. They are comfortable, smooth, and everyone that's seen them love them. My friends now fight over who sits where! Thanks Theater Seat Store I'm a happy camper."
By Joe Rodriguez from Miami, Florida
great seating love it
"Just got these in brown and power recliner. Look great and seating is comfortable. Money's worth and good customer service.One thing I noticed each individual chair are not hooked in any way. Now I am not putting them against wall so if kids lean on headrest might fall backwards. Little safety concern. Not a problem if you put it against wall."
By Raja from san Diego
5 Star Chair
"Just received my Brown leather Power Recliner. The Chair is spectacular with outstanding comfort. Replaced 4year old $1400.00 Lazy boy leather rocker reclined with the Reno theatre chair. The Reno with wall higher and power is far superior. Shipping and delivery was on time and outstanding even without white glove delivery. Looking forward to new IPAD mount in a month or so. Great job theatre seat store."
By John Madrick from Yorba Linda
"These chairs are cheaply made and uncomfortable after a couple of hours. The reclining mechanism makes a popping sound, and there are various blemishes here and there. I would not recommend them."
By Bob from Phoenix

By Sherry from HIRAM , GA
"I just bought 4 of these chairs. At the last minute I upgraded to leather and power recline (additional $700 for the 4) and am so glad I did. These chairs are awesome and I think the only ones offered with a table feature (a must for eating in front of the TV). I received them in less than a week. Easy to assemble. Believe all the positive reviews you read! I was reluctant to buy site unseen, but the risk paid off."
By VP from Albuquerque
"We just finished remodeling our basement, and we purchased 6 of these for our home theater. We have had them for a few weeks now, and the whole family loves them. They are incredibly comfortable,and the tray tables are a very nice extra as well. They arrived faster than promised, packaged extremely well, and went together very easy. We all look forward to Saturday movie nights, and Sunday & Monday night football games as well. I would reccomend these to everyone!"
By George from Ohio
Great Product and Customer Service!!!

Our experience with the "Theater Seats Store" was excellent from the research stage to delivery.Thanks a LOT to Pete who was instrumental to the entire process! Pete gave us great advice based on our room dimemsion and configuration. Delievery was made rapidly, inside our garage, assembly was very simple!Should you need home theater seats, getting the Berkline Reno at TheaterSeatsStore is your answer !"
By Eric from Lexington, KY
GREAT CHAIRS AND AWESOME SERVICE!!!!!!!!!
"I shopped around the internet and decided on the LANE MATINEE because of the power recliners and chaise lounger style.Called on a monday and my set of three arrived less than 48 hrs later!!!QUALITY SOFT LEATHER is my favorite feature! TheTheater Seat Store even matched the lowest price i found!! The chairs come in nice packaging and are easy to put together(comes in two pieces per box=1chair).I recommend the power option and the top grade leather.The shipping time was amazing as I expected 7-10 days....mybe because we are close to Colorado???Aplus!!"
By Jeff from Columbus,Nebraska
"I bought two separate chairs for my tv room is not that big. These chairs are great I was surprised by the quality, everyone who has seen them loves them . They are so comfortable."
By Sharon from Glendale, Az
Excellent product very happy
"Berkline Reno seats are the best. super quality and worth the money bought them 50.0off. Did a lot of research and these guys were best on pricing. My only beef was with FED EX on the delivery even thought they had the chairs on the 13th of Dec they did not deliver them until Dec 30th they did not show up twice after making appointment. Otherwise i cant knock the product very happy now that i have them"
By Troy from VA
"do these seats ship as seperate seats or one row of 3 connected seats? I need to no if they can fit into our basement"
By ryan from chicago, il
"I love my chairs very good product. The seats recline back far enough as if your laying down. All of my friend love them."
By Reggie Richardson from Edmond Oklahoma
"Just thought I'd let you know that my husband was very surprised and pleased with his Father's Day gift he got!"
By Rosa from Orlando, FL
"Very happy....the storage is great and leather is top grain not BONDED LEATHER like some of the other online dealers are selling. Overall great experience buying from these guys - thought they were very informative and actually stopped me from buying the same seat from someone else who offered it cheaper but didn't disclose it was bonded leather instead of top grain. Bonded leather is the lowest quality leather...ground leather mixed with glue and polished to look authentic.....beware out there, ask only for top grain. "
By Denise from Port St Lucie
"I"m around 6"3 and my wife around 5"9. Because of its high back and "chaise" style footrest this seat was out top pick. I tend to find most seats dont fit me well because of my height - but these are excellent - amazing head support. I highly recommend The Reno for anyone who is tall!!"
By Martin from Ft. Lauderdale, FL
"We picked these seats since we wanted a storage compartment in the arms for our remotes and stuff. The tray table is also great since we tend to eat our meals in front of the tv. Our media room looks fantastic with these chairs."
By George from Birmingham
"The sales team were amazing to deal with - ask for "Pete" and he'll steer you in the right direction. first he was gettiing personal asking about my height, etc...but then realized his questions were so that he could find me the best seats to suit my size and needs. We appreciate the extra care and attention."
By Jim from Utah
"Pretty nice quality"

Berkline Reno Black Leather Theater Seats
"I did a lot of research on my seating choices so let me share some of that knowledge with you as to what made this the best seat for me. Buying theater seats is important because apart from the fact that it costs almost as much as a second hand car, its something that you are going to be relying on for comfort for years to come. I had a pair of LazyBoy recliners which are nearly 15 years old and look like they were bought yesterday so if you buy quality, they are going to last a long time. Berkline was my choice because after reading all the forums, they by far get the best overall quality review for home theater seating in the US market. Warranty was also a big factor - if I'm spending $5k on seats, I want to know that if something goes wrong there is not going to be a problem fixing them, So once I decided on the manufacturer, it was a question of style, The Berkline Matinee or 45090 was my obvious first choice but this seat is the Matinee and so much more. In fact, its the same base as the 45090 but with a higher back and different armrests. The armrests on this seat have ample storage and a tray table with a slightly higher back which works well for me because I am 6ft tall. As for the price, its hard to beat because this seat is made by Berkline in their Asia facility and with the same warranty as the local product and we all know that Asia produces products at a huge discount to here. The quality on a direct comparison to the Berkline 45090 is, in my opinion exactly the same. Comfort is excellent and I actually had a chance to sit in both seats before I bought them. Maybe my only complaint is that this seat is not available in dark brown but only black and it was the ideal fit for my theater room. If you have questions, ask for Pete....he was very helpful and pleasure to deal with."
By Fritz from Alpharetta, GA
"This is the seat that everyone has been talking about. It did not disappoint...great quality leather and the tray tables are a must. Overall very happy and would recommend this seller and seat to all my friends."
