My decor appears to be very important to you. I have provided one photo to show the lack of any plastic coverings, or "cellophane" as you put it, anywhere in or on the seating area.
I do have one concern with high back listening chairs or some couches that do reflect sound waves and give a false sense of the actually soundstage. This was happening with me with a chair I had like yours. It did sound good but I would notice a difference when I would sit up away from the backing. It kind of did what my screen tv did when it was between the speakers. Threw a blanket over it and it would stop that reflection.
The high back is not an issue because I recline back when I listen. The top edge of the chair back is then below my ears. I also have acoustic panels flanking the chair to the rear which ameliorate any reflective anomolies.
Seems to be an attempt to emulate listening situated at the rear of a closet.
Nothing like a good listening chair. Just a special feeling when you sit down in anticipation of the music.
Given the nature of this thread, I suppose it would be in appropriate to mention that the books do not appear to be in alphabetical order? :) The effect that this has on the sound is something that we audiophiles could go on and on about ad nauseam, I'm sure! LOL
I think the cable lifts look good, and are certainly a more reasonable alternative to the official, insanely expensive ones that one usually sees.
Actually the fiction to the right as you look at the shelves are all arranged alphabetically. The shelving to the left is a mixture of philosophy, religious studies and some history. These are alphabetical within their categories. I could never perceive a sound difference with any alternative arrangement.
Hi House, looks very nice. Is that an Ekornes chair? I was just thinking about buying one.
Can you tell me how you like it? Comfort, guality etc..
Hi Paul! Yes, it is an Ekornes recliner We have another in the living room and a couch. It is extremely comfortable the leather being soft and supple. You must maintain your alertness and focus to keep drowsiness at bay which is its only possible deficiency. It is preferable to listen to something which maintains your interest at all times!
Ah! Much appreciated.
There are only two negatives about the Ekornes. They are very expensive. Also the foot rest is just that and not an ottoman. It is not designed to support the full body weight. You must remind guests not to sit on it. The chair itself is made very well and comfortable enough to sleep on when fully reclined.
