How long has it been since you rearranged the furniture in your family room? If you’ve recently put in a home theater, you might have already done your share of scraping couches, chairs and cabinets across the floor. Some of that stuff simply wasn’t meant to move. And guess what? You’ll probably want to shift everything around again at some point, whether you’re making room for your daughter’s slumber party or pushing everything together for Super Bowl Sunday. Yes, the home theater setup you have now might be perfect for viewing a movie, but is the arrangement good for when you want to read a book, host a cocktail party or play cards with the kids?
Responding to a trend toward more casual, versatile entertainment environments, Bass Industries is offering a modular furniture approach that can be changed on a whim. The Latitude is the latest in the company’s Formations line of configurable sofas. As with all of the units in the line, the pieces that make up the Latitude are sold a la carte. You can buy three pieces to arrange a cozy loveseat area or go with the complete five-piece set to create a myriad of seating options to suit any occasion. Push all of the units together to form a 180-inch curved sofa, or remove the pieces at each end to have a shorter couch with two individual chairs. Designed by Bass Industries’ Chris Vlaun, Latitudes is upholstered in high-grade leather and is available in a choice of six colors, giving you even more options when it comes to seating for your entertainment room.
Prices range from $4,800 to $7,800, and the sofas are sold exclusively through select interior designers and CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) dealers.
