    Home Theater Room Photos (Finished Rooms Only)
    I've been delinquent in posting pictures of our media room. We just put in the carpet and received the new theater seats at the first of the year. There still is work to be done but I figured I'd post where we are and updates can come later. BTW - the camera didn't do a great job picking up...

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I have enjoyed reading other's stories and (mis)adventures in theater-building, so I felt I should share my own build that started a couple of months ago.

    Hello, I am wondering how the sides are finished on armless Berklines such as the Berkline Group 496 Style 50 Armless Chair & Half. In my application sides will be exposed. Does the microfiber material cover the sides? Are there exposed structural components? Thanks, John
