Frames

Made to the same high standards as all of our furniture, each one of our upholstery frames is built to last.

Kiln-dried, engineered hardwood

We use kiln-dried, engineered hardwood in all of our upholstery frames. Often used for structural beams, engineered hardwood is made by pressing thin layers of solid wood together. Kiln-drying removes moisture, minimizing seasonal expansion and contraction. This stable hardwood material resists warping and cracking for lasting durability.

Reinforced joinery

We reinforce every joint in our frames for added stability. Precision-cut parts interlock like puzzle pieces and are reinforced with eco-friendly glues, screws or staples and corner blocks. Reinforced joinery ensures your seating holds together, even with years of frequent use.

Suspension

Dual flexolator

A Dual Flexolator suspension consists of a tempered steel grid attached to the frame with small springs. Each seat has its own independent steel grid, providing undisturbed comfort for each person on the sofa.

      Great sofa, but not worth the delivery hassels.

      Service and delivery comments:

      After ordering the sofa and chair we we learned the sofa wasn't in stock and not to expect shipment for three months. So I was surprised to see both pieces immediately charged to my credit card. I can understand a down payment, but really charging for the entire purchase up front?!
      I had forgotten how tortuous R&B's delivery service was. No flexibility on day or time and minimal warning, so plan on taking a day off. We bought a bed from them years ago and ended up having it dumped in our garage because neither of us could get off work - and then we had to put it together ourselves and it's never been right. So, note to self I will NEVER buy anything that requires delivery from them again. I love their products, but their service and delivery suck.

          Customer comments about Ian 90" Sofa:

          I went all over trying to find leather sofas that are not only stylish but comfortable. Everything seems to be of the 'overstuffed'style. Room and Board was recommended by a friend. I must have tried every couch in the showroom. Ian was a perfect fit. I ordered the 90" and the 70" sofas. They look great in my family room. And my feet actually touch the ground when I sit!
          If I was a young person starting out in life I would definitely shop at R & B for my larger furniture pieces.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt, on time. Jason was the lead driver. Very courteous and mindful of floors, doors, and walls as he guided the sofas into my home. He instructed me on the care of my leather couches and made sure they were placed exactly where I wanted them to be.

            Customer comments about Ian 90" Sofa:

            I've had my Ian sofa for about a month and I love it. Don't be put off by the simple design. It has a clean, modern form that looks great in my home. The cushions are firm, comfortable, and supportive for sitting and lounging. I made many visits to R&B and sat on many sofas before I made my choice. I'm very pleased and look forward to enjoying my Ian for years to come.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Service at the Room & Board showroom and the 800 number were great. My delivery experience could've been better. I would've expected the delivery people to have more experience and confidence getting large items into vintage buildings in Chicago.

                Customer comments about Ian 81" Sofa:

                My husband and I purchased this sleeper sofa for our son who lives in a studio/condo in Washington, DC. We bought this sofa one year ago and it looks brand new. No sagging cushions, pillows on the back firm, leather as gorgeous as the day delivered.
                He is a junior in college so it is getting plenty of day to day wear. We were looking out for our own best interest. We wanted someplace conformable to sleep when we visited. as well as something that looked good for him now, as a student, and for later--once he starts working.
                We can't be happier with this sofa! So easy to open, inflate, and close. Literally takes seconds. So comfortable--especially for my husband who has back issues. Always a great night's sleep.
                It's an excellent investment piece for someone who wants a quality sofa that is great looking and comfy. The fact that it's also a sleeper is just an added bonus. We are looking forward to many more years with our Ian.
