Executive Overview

Jump Seat StorageSalamander Designs introduced one of the more practical home theater seating products we've seen to-date dubbed the Jump Seat Ottoman. The unique Jump Seat Ottoman unfolds to reveal a hide-away theater seat that can be used as a secondary or extra seat for watching movies or playing video games. If you've got fours seats and you add four of these puppies, you've just doubled your home theater seating ability.

Of course the Jump Seat serves as a traditional ottoman, with a cushioned surface ready to convert a comfortable seat into a chaise lounge. Either way it looks good and works equally well with all of Salamander Designs’ varied Home Theater Seating Systems.

The Jump Seat features a sturdy, patent pending mechanism that helps the top smoothly rise into a vertical position, revealing a padded seat and backrest. The generously-sized seat is 21.5 inches wide x 14.5 inches deep, with the back rest 22 inches high. A cup holder and a small compartment for remote controls or game controllers rest along the seat’s right-hand side. The only downside was the inability to use any space below the seat for storage of video game consoles, software or controllers.

Jump Seat ClosedThe seat is available in 14 leathers, 10 Microsuedes, or a combination of both materials for an appealing two-tone look, in two stitching styles to match Salamander’s Home Theater seats. Closed, the Jump Seat measures 31.5 inches wide x 24 inches deep x 16 inches high. It rests on four casters for mobility, with dark espresso wood feet available as options.

The Jump Seat is constructed of premium components with exceptional attention to detail, reliability and durability. It will be available in Spring 2008 from authorized Salamander dealers. Pricing is TBD.
