Going to the cinema is a unique experience, but it is just as enjoyable to spend an evening at home alone or with friends and family watching a good movie or TV series from the comfort of your own living room. Of course, not all sofas provide the right comfort experience for a challenging film or binge watching your favourite series. However, there are models designed especially to please cinephiles. In short: recreating a small home cinema is definitely possible – even without the need for a large space.
Want to find out which model is best for you? Below you will find some recommended sofas for various types of users, including: technological, contemporary and traditional.
For you, technological progress translates into new ways of experiencing comfort. You yearn for a sofa that recreates the experience of cinema thanks to advanced, state-of-the-art technology. Among your favourite films are biopics dedicated to great, historical innovators or inventors and you also love films that use special effects and CGI to perfection. Out of all of the sofas you can choose from, we definitely recommend the ‘Romeo Relax’ and ‘Falco Relax’ by Calia Italia.
‘Romeo Relax’ is an extremely comfortable sofa thanks to its reclining footrest and headrest, which can be raised electronically thanks to the touch pad next to the armrest. It can be adjusted according to the position of your TV so you can watch your screen in total comfort.
An equally comfortable alternative is ‘Falco Relax’, a new model presented at the ‘Salone del Mobile 2022’. With this model, relax versions, reclining backrests, corner versions, chaise-longes, meridian armchairs and recliners can be combined as you wish to guarantee a customised comfort experience.
You love contemporary furniture style, you like ultra-modern cinemas and you are always up to date with the latest big film and TV series releases.
To create the perfect evening comfort in your living room, the best sofa is ‘Toby Wing’, which is equipped with adjustable armrests that allow for a considerable extension of the seat, turning it into an actual day-bed. It is a sofa with ‘wings’ since the backrests and armrests allow the seat depth and width to be extended by 42 cm and 25 cm respectively. Furthermore, for a romantic movie date, ‘Toby Wing’ is also available in a maxi chaise-long version with a seat that can accommodate two people.
Alternatively, Calia Italia’s new ‘Fly’ model is also equipped with tilting backrests which, when fully moved back, make it a true ‘flying carpet’. Deep and elegant, ‘Fly’ guarantees a comfortable lying position with support for the head, making it excellent for watching TV in total relaxation.
What could be nicer than an old cinema hall and a good old movie to rewatch once again? For the more traditionalist in both film and furniture tastes, the most suitable sofas in the Calia Italia catalogue are ‘Quint’Essènza’ and ‘Matheola’.
Quint’Essènza is an elegant, sober and rigorous sofa, which is characterised by slender feet and a thin side covered in regenerated leather. This model is equipped with a special mechanism that allows the back cushion to be raised to increase the height and depth of the seat. By activating the double mechanism of the backrest and sliding seat, it can increase its size by 38 centimetres, transforming it into an actual day bed.
‘Matheola’, the iconic Calia Italia sofa, also has a wide, comfortable seat that can be increased in depth and a backrest that can be raised to increase its height thanks to a mechanism that repositions the backrest towards the rear.
