Edging on the waynes coating - I think it looks amazing. I was curios if I could ask what size material was used to do the waynes coating boxes (I assume that is called waynes coating); was curious if it is 1x4 or 1x6 or 1x8? Also what type of material it is (MDF, wood, etc). And one final question, from the picture, it appears there is some contour to the edge on the inside of the box (as if there is some contour to the inner edge of the material), was curious if this already on the material or done by you all...and if there is a name for what the edging is called. Thanks for any assistance.

The panels are framed with 1x6 Alder wood, and the insets are acoustical fabric. There is an ogee sticking around the inside of the panels. Thanks, and have a great day!

Hey Phyllis,

My name is Ben Steenson, I work for Magnolia Design Center in Minnetonka MN. We offer acoustic treatments that can be completely customized as well as premade acoustic panels. We have examples of both on display in our showroom. Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks,

Ben Steenson

can you tell me the the height of cabinets below the screen and the overall height and width of the room. We are thinking of doing something very similiar and I want to see if our ceiling height would work.

No, it is centered on the wall. Just appears that way because of the angle of the photography. There is 6' between the front chair and screen. Thanks, and good luck!

It was a custom blend of stains, which is pretty typical in all homes that we build & remodel. Thanks, and good luck!

The Counter - We are redesigning our media room due to a fire in our home and our space is 18 X 20.. I love your designs and everything about your homes. I was wondering if the counter is in the same level as the 2nd row of seats or if you either made another step or made the counter taller?

Is there any way the home owner can be contacted to find out where were these beautiful chairs were purchased or ordered from? I have been all over the net searching every possible website i can think of, looking for these chairs and so far, no results. I have been looking for about a month already and cant seem to have any luck with them. Would love to know if possible.
We are also doing a custom built bar, sort of the same look of this theater room but i'm missing the stools. Please advise if possible.
Thx.
