These stunning vintage cinema theatre seats will bring a touch of glamour and style to any home. Ideal as a space saving alternative to a sofa, seating in a hallway or to furnish a home cinema. The curved back and deep sprung seats add comfort to the beautiful 1930’s Art Deco style. These seats were designed to be sat in for long periods.

 

There are hundreds of beautiful velvets to choose from and both the velvet seat fabric and cast iron leg colour can be customised to suit your style. We are always happy to discuss options with you so we can create a statement set of vintage cinema seats totally unique to you. Available as single chairs and in rows of two, three or four seats. Longer or multiple rows can also be created.

 

Fabric costs are in addition to the price of the seats and will vary depending on the velvet chosen. Just get in touch before purchasing to discuss options and timings. Lead times do vary, depending on our current order list, but we will discuss timings with you when you get in touch.

 

We also offer a split payment option - 50% deposit to be paid upfront to secure your seats and space in the order book with the final 50% payment due before delivery. Fabric costs will be confirmed once you have chosen.

 

Before delivering your refurbished cinema seats we will:

 

  • strip, repair and refinish the wooden backs, arms and seat bases to reveal the lovely wood grain
  • clean, prime and paint the cast iron legs and seat brackets
  • repair and replace the internal upholstery and padding as needed with equivalent natural and fire retardant materials
  • finish the seats and backs in a beautiful fire retardant velvet of your choice
  • fix them to a wooden board, painted or stained to suit

 

We recommend the chairs are fixed to a board or to your floor to keep them stable. We supply them on a removable wooden board that we paint or stain to fit in with your flooring and the velvet, but many of our customers do choose to screw them directly into the floor.

 

Materials

 

Velvet: We love to use soft velvets on our cinema seats as we feel it suits their style and reflects their past. There are lots of colours and designs to choose from and we are always happy to chat with you about what you are looking for and help you with some ideas. Anything we suggest will be suitable for upholstery, fire retardant and hard wearing.

 

Wood: The wooden top rail, shaped arm rests, curved seat backs and seat bases are all stripped back and refinished with Osmo Polyx oil and then given a final wax finish. There will be marks in the wood due to their age, but this adds to their unique character.

 

Metal: Cast iron legs and fittings will be cleaned and repainted, but due to their age there will be dents and marks, or character as we like to call it.

 

Fillings: The chairs have deep sprung seats and natural fillings, which we repair and replace as needed.

Vintage theatre cinema seats

£495.00Price
  • The theatre seats we work with are originally from the 1930s/40s and have been salvaged over the years from theatres as they get renovated. They have had a good life before we get our hands on them so will never look brand new or have a factory-perfect finish. There will be imperfections and ageing, but that's what makes each one unique and special. We always choose our pieces carefully, so they will last for many years to come.
