Palliser continues to impress with it's Fall 2010 line up of new home theater seating. The new introductions have many design and feature additions but there is one new model that stands above the rest and will set a design standard for 2011.
Most new introductions include storage and look very similar to the Magnolia model with different seat backs. Another common characteristic is the introduction of a number of new space savers. Palliser has entered this portion of the market with a vengeance.
The market star is undoubtedly the Palliser Axis or Palliser model 41934. This seat introduces a very novel concept with a Perspex tray table that slides into a very elegant slot in the exterior outside portions of the seat. The real catch is that this slit is lit with the same light used in the ambient base and cup holders. This light reflects through the Perspex and lights the edges giving the model a very cool affect. What's even better is when the tray table is removed, the light shines through the slit and looks nothing short of amazing. The seat has a head rest that extends upwards as the seat reclines extending the fully reclined depth of this theater chair. A cup holder that powers the lighting and recline function adds to the new design introductions on this model.
The Palliser 41930 Strategy looks very similar to the Pacifico but appears to have a higher seat back and very subtle design changes.
The other interesting introduction was the 3 seat sofa version of the blockbuster Pacifico theater seat (discussed in a post below). This seat is now available in a row of three seats without arm rests between the seats and all three seats recline. This will be a great addition to this already best seller.
Finally home theater featured the Phoenix faux leather on six floor models in different colors!! The Phoenix is quite special and it one of the best replacement leather options on the market today. It has a soft and buttery hand to it and after being introduced last season, will also continue along it upward path of success.
The synthetic leathers available today, made now primarily from PU (polyurethane), which is the new better option over vinyl which was used in the past. The end result is material that now rivals the exact look and feel of fine leathers. It is the ultimate choice and well worth considering especially if price is a factor in the decision. The Phoenix faux leather is just too hard to ignore!
