How Cabine Seats Are Installed On New Aircraft?

I have a couple of questions about cabin seats on new commercial aircraft:

1. Do Boeing and Airbus produce their own seats? Or do they offer standard seats through subcontractors? If Boeing/Airbus provides the seats, do they tend to favor certain manufacturers.

2. Do airlines purchase seats separately from new aircraft? Do they tend to choose from selected suppliers to Boeing and Airbus?

3. Where are they usually installed? - at the Boeing/Airbus factory or at the airline's headquarters? Which is the most popular?

Many thanks for anyone's assistance.

Boeing & Airbus just supply metal tubes, the purchaser specifies the interior fit.

Seats are BFE - Buyer Furnished Equipment, Airbus builds the plane, it's up to the airline to buy the seats....generally these companies will organise to have the seats installed at the point of manufacture...i.e. Toulouse, Hamburg, Seattle etc....it's simply handier.....
