Why is USA Manufacturing of Home Theater Seating Important?
When a manufacturer ships their product oversees, they are generally worried about one thing - shipping costs. In order to increase shipping efficency, oversees manufacturers will only create pieces of furniture that fit "nicely" into t.heir shipping creates. The word "custom" is simply not a part of the vocabulary.
At Starpower, we approach the home theater furniture a little differently. We believe in creating furniture that fits your room and your preferences. Do you want extra wide seats for more snuggle room? Or how about extra high chair-backs for extra neck support?
No problem! We'll create your custom theater seating.
It doesn't stop there - we also offer sofas, sectionals, recliners and benches.
How Do I Know If My Home Theater Furniture is High Quality?
There are several indicators for establishing the quality of your leather furniture. We've outlined some of the most important below:
Type of Leather
What is Top Grain Leather?
Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade because it is split from the top layer of blemished hide then sanded and refinished. This is how they get rid of scars and scrapes and light cow brands. Top grain leather does not age nicely with use. It is strong and durable, but not good enough for Saddleback. They sanded off the strongest fibers of the hide leaving mainly the horizontal (easily pulled apart) fibers. By the way, did you know that leather shavings are used as filler in cheap dog food? The bigger the pile of shavings in the dog food, the bigger the piles elsewhere.
What is Genuine Leather?
Genuine leather is the third grade of leather and is produced from the layers of hide that remain after the top is split off for the better grades. The surface is usually refinished (spray painted) to resemble a higher grade. It can be smooth or rough. Ever heard of suede? Suede is tougher than cloth and is excellent for lining, but it's not a good idea to use it in areas where it gets stress.
What is Bonded Leather?
Bonded leather is the dust and shavings of the leather glued and pressed together. It is the PT Cruiser of the leather world... pure junk. Leftover scraps are ground together with glue and resurfaced in a process similar to vinyl manufacture. Bonded leather is weak and degrades quickly with use. Some of our competitors will use bobded leather instead of quality leather to cut corners.
All of Starpower's home theater furniture comes with a LIFETIME FRAME WARRANTY. If your home theater doesn't come with the same - ask the retailer why.
All of the solid wood used in our home theater furntiure is kiln dried, leaving only 2-3% mositure whcih allows us to offer for a lifetime warranty on our furniture - we believe in our product that much!
Finishing Quality - Back Panel Material, Naii Heads, etc.
Many people love the look and design athestic of nailhead borders on their custom home theater or living room furntiure. But many complain or worry that the nailheads will fall off overtime.
That WILL NOT happen with a piece of custom made home theater furniture from Starpower and United Leather. See the photo below? Check ou the size of that nail!
And the finished corners of our furntirure are lined (inside) with a protective foam to ensure your leather lasts for years to come!
Customer Service Quality
When you order fro Starpower, your order is custom made for you (it's event wrapped in a pretty bow before it's installed on your frame). But the customer service you'll receive after your order is one of the most impressive aspects of our furniture.
Every order contains a custom tag for your order. This tag can be used to track your order throughout the lifetime of your furntiure. If you move out of state and damage an arm-rest, we'll use this tag to re-create a new arm rest to the specifications on your tag.
When your order is ready to ship - it will receive a Made in the USA tag which will contain the details of your order.

The Ultimate Theater Seating Quality Test
When evaluating the quality of your home theater furniture - there is one simple test you can execute - smack your hand on the side of your furniture - under the arm and above the floor.
If your hand meets a solid material like wood, you've purchased a quality piece. You''ll know becuase you'll hear a solid "smack" on the wood.
If your hand meets a hollow spot between pieces of framing wood, you've sacrified qualty.
