1. Seatcraft Omega Home Theater Seating

Best Overall

Seatcraft Omega Home Theater Seating
  • ✅ LEATHER GEL: Offers the look and feel of top grain leather that is both durable and elegant
  • ✅ TOP-IN-CLASS COMFORT: Powered Headrests & Recline. Take your comfort to the next level with the push...

If you want something built for comfort and packed with extras, this is your sofa. The price point is reasonable while still providing a luxurious look and feel along with durable quality.

Leather gel gives the look and feel of top-grain leather while being extra durable, which is a bonus for something that will likely get a lot of use. 

It comes with power recline and power headrests that allow you to adjust your comfort automatically with buttons built into the inside of the seat. 

The power headrest pushes out from the couch, so you can comfortably see the screen when you are reclined. It also has a “home” button that simultaneously powers the recliner and headrest to their original positions.

There’s a fold-down table with an outlet, two USB ports and one wireless charging option for your devices in the middle seat.

It also has overhead lights with individual on and off buttons that swivel toward or away from you. This feature is perfect if someone wants to read while the other watches the screen. 

The middle section folds back into a seat as well, making room for a third person. However, there is no recline for the middle seat, so you may have to share your footrest if you invite a third. 

Hidden in-arm storage and side pockets give you places to store remotes, gear, gaming controllers, reading material or anything else you might need. 

Light-up cup holders allow you to easily see where your drink goes in the dark, and fold-out trays give each end its own snack table. 

It’s important to note that when the tray tables are in use, they block the cup holder. It’s a small design flaw that’s easily rectified by the sheer number of options you have with this piece.

This seating system has six plugs, so make sure you can put it near a place that has an outlet with power adapters. 

Ultimately, it’s one of the best options for smaller home theaters, living rooms, man caves or she-sheds, but not a great option if you need more than one unit in a bigger home theater. 

Pros

  • Power headrest gives optimal viewing experience
  • Multiple charging options
  • Built-in overhead lights 
  • Light up cup holders
  • Tray tables

Cons

  • Uses six plugs
  • Tray tables block cupholders when in use
  • No middle seat recline option

2. Pulaski Larson Theatre Recliner

Pulaski Larson Theatre Recliner, 38.0
  • One outlet and two USB changing plugs are hidden in arm storage and available at the push of a button for...
  • Power Recline to infinite positions with the touch of a button. You can sit upright for an intense movie,...

When you’re looking for home theater seating for one, the Pulaski Larson Theatre Recliner is a great choice. 

The faux leather material is breathable, soft and easy to clean. Keep in mind that with faux materials, you need to watch for eventual peeling. 

We found this option to be comfortable, offering sink-into-it comfort as opposed to sturdy back support. 

There is one outlet and two USB charging points hidden in the arm storage for easy charging of your phone, tablet or laptop. This means no more long cords and reaching for outlets. 

These features also make it a good option as a work-from-home chair. It’s hard not to love a multi-tasking piece of furniture.

You can power recline from regular chair seating all the way down to flat for naps. The lack of lumbar support wasn’t a big deal when it was flat, but it was noticeable in the upright position.

It has a swivel tray that can attach to either arm, which is convenient for left-handed folks. A tablet, small laptop or any manner of snacks will fit on it. 

While this could definitely be built sturdier, it’s still a great addition to the seat.

Some assembly and two plugs are required. One plug is for the power recline and one is for the USB charging ports. 

Fortunately, once you’re plugged in and ready to go, there’s not much that this chair doesn’t offer.

Pros

  • Swivel tray connects on either side
  • Soft fabric
  • Great charging options

Cons

  • Some assembly required
  • No lumbar support
  • Tray table could be sturdier

3. Flash Furniture Reel Comfort 2-Seat

Best Seating With No Plugs

Flash Furniture Reel Comfort Series 2-Seat Reclining Black LeatherSoft Theater Seating Unit with Straight Cup Holders
  • Make your house the place to be with this 2-seat reclining theater seating unit with recessed levers;...
  • Plush arms, contrasting accent stitching, soft and durable LeatherSoft upholstery

If you’re looking for a stylish “unplugged” home theater option, this is it. The Flash Furniture Reel Comfort 2-Seat has a contemporary style with cross-stitching, and the LeatherSoft material is soft and durable. 

It comes with plastic floor glides that protect your flooring by sliding smoothly when you need to move it. The recessed levers also contribute to its overall stylishness and allow it to fit in any space.

With center cup holders and a storage console for remotes, gaming controllers and reading material, there’s no shortage of places to set yourself up for the big game or a movie marathon.

Better yet, the plush arms and back have generous amounts of foam padding, offering firm support for long sitting sessions.

It ships in three boxes, so there is some assembly required. Fortunately, it’s mostly hooks and clips, so the assembly is quite simple. 

While this seat will work in any home, we think it’s a great option for stylish homes and cottages. 

Pros

  • Great for places you don’t need a plug-in option
  • Plush and firm support
  • Stylish

Cons

  • Not a great for really tall people
  • Some assembly required
  • No charging or power options

4. Pawnova PU Leather Chair

  • High Quality: The recliner sofa adopt sturdy faux leather to make the surface of the sofa which make the...
  • User Friendly Design: The 360°swivel base help you can swivel freely when you sit on it, the two cup...

The Pawnova PU Leather Chair is an affordable home theater seating option. It has sturdy faux leather fabric with soft, comfortable foam inside and a sturdy frame. 

The metal base will swivel 360 degrees, meaning you’ll never have to move or angle the recliner. With an over-padded back, seat and headrest, you’ll find it to be a cushy spot to enjoy your favorite movie. 

There are two cup holders, allowing you to use one for a drink and one for your phone since this chair does not have any charging options. It also has a side storage pocket for remotes or reading materials.

The Pawnova comes with some fun features. It has eight different vibration points with a remote to adjust the intensity. 

Additionally, it has a lumbar heating function, making this a great chair for those with back problems or anyone who enjoys unwinding after a long day.

You can semi-recline or lie flat. While it does take some assembly, it comes with all tools required and sets up quickly. 

It’s also nice easy to clean. Just wipe it with a damp cloth. 

Though it’s limited on options compared to some others on this list, its price and quality build make this a great chair for a basic home theater seat.

Pros

  • Vibration and lumbar heating
  • Excellent padding
  • Swivel 360 degrees

Cons

  • Some assembly required
  • No charging or power options
  • Not the best option for really tall people

5. Octane Bolt XS400

Octane Seating Octane Bolt XS400 Motorized Leather Home Theater Recliner Set (Row of 2), Black
  • Power Recline for unlimited reclining positions
  • Excellent lumbar and head support

The Octane Bolt XS400 is a fantastic pick for home theater seating. You can purchase individual seats that pair together or buy as many seats as you need to achieve the home theater of your dreams

These seats do not connect, but their weight keeps them together. The wall-saver mechanism allows you to place it within 4 inches of a wall, which means it’s perfect for literally any space.

Bonded leather that is thick and extremely durable makes this option kid and pet-friendly. However, it really shines when it comes to quality. 

These seats have premium lumbar and head support. They are constructed using premium high-density foam, and the individual pocketed coils are surrounded by it for long-lasting comfort. 

There is gel-infused memory foam for extreme comfort. Additionally, its ergonomic design places support in all the right places, while quality materials will keep you comfortable for years to come.

While there is no power recline, Octane offers fun accessories to customize your seating.

Cup holders come standard, but you can add tray tables, a phone holder, a mini flex light, an arm that holds a bowl, and wine glass holders. All of these attach via the armrest. 

Better yet, these seats also come in dozens of colors, so you can truly customize them to your lifestyle.

Pros

  • Solid construction with high-density and memory foam
  • Wall saver mechanism
  • Fun accessories to customize to your lifestyle

Cons

  • Some assembly required 
  • No power recline
  • No charging options

6. Octane Regal XL250 Power Recline Sangria Microfiber

Octane Regal XL250 Power Recline

But the features inside are completely modern. Each seat includes push button power recline and USB chargers, and each arm has an exclusive accessory dock that supports any of Octane’s accessories. Customize with tray tables, a wine glass holder, popcorn bowls, cigar holders, tablet holders, and more.

Never trip in your home theater with blue ambient LED lighting on the baserails. We especially loved the same blue LED on the cupholders, no more fumbling around in the dark to make your drink fit into the hole. 

Octane’s Wallaway design means this home theater seating can fit in even the smallest of rooms, as it only requires the seat to be 4 inches from the wall to recline. This is a great option if you want a full service plush home theater experience.
