At Continental Seating®, we strive to offer our clients CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES. While many of our competitors subcontract to other furniture manufacturers in the US, Canada, South America, and Europe to produce their theater seating, we own our own manufacturing facility located just outside of Dallas, Texas. This allows us to walk out to the factory and get answers in minutes not days or weeks. As owners, this also permits us to sit in every seat before it leaves the factory thus ensuring that we would not put anything in your home that we were not put in our own home.

Coupled with our philosophy of CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES, we also strive to incorporate the technologies that will enhance your home theater experience into our seating. We are able to integrate technology such as actuators, tactile sound transducers, and touch panel controls devices.

Tactile & Actuators

Further solidifying our market position of customization, being part home the home integration, we support manufacturer technology in the vibro tactile device and linear actuator industry. Bravo!™, the first home theater seating specifically designed for consumers who want the ultimate home theater sensory experience, features a customized mount that produces vibration over the full range of tactile and audible frequencies.

Size Requirements

Since necessity is the mother of all innovations, we have the ability to modify sizes on chairs, arms and wedges if needed. One popular necessity has been taking a 24" seat style (i.e. Gable, Harlowe, and Tsunami) and reduces these chairs to a 21" seat. Conversely, the Titan series was born out of necessity for our larger clientele when we took a 24" and created a 31" seat.
