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

Sinuous coil

A sinuous coil suspension consists of s-shaped metal springs that are stretched across the frame. The coils are securely attached with clips that allow the metal to flex while still remaining supportive. Because each coil is independently attached to the frame, you'll barely feel it when someone sits down next to you.

          Customer comments about Vela 96" Bench-Cushion Sofa:

          I love this couch, super comfortable and also very modern and clean looking. The only thing is the main couch pillow does crease and lose its form or sag, probably because it is just one long shape and can't support weight separately.

          Service and delivery comments:

          My first couch arrived with black streaks along the bottom of it and some other stains. This was really disappointing, and I had to schedule a replacement. The person who helped me also would not extend a discount on the purchase price, even though this caused a major inconvenience. He did offer to waive the delivery fee, but that basically was the equivalent of tipping two separate deliveries, plus the wait of weeks for my new couch, and managing work schedule, etc., to be available two separate times. I will not be ordering from Room and Board again, as I felt like the customer service should have offered a discount on delivering a damaged $3K couch.

          Customer comments about Vela 96" Bench-Cushion Sofa:

          The small feathers in the cushion filling are constantly poking through - I like the feather and down cushion, but the fabric wrapping the feathers needs to be of a tighter weave, like on good pillows.

            Customer comments about Vela 96" Bench-Cushion Sofa:

            Out last sofa came from a less expensive store and we were sinking lower and lower into the sofa over time. This one sits a bit higher and no one gets stuck in the crack with the bench cushion. I feel confident it will support and hold up better than the previous one. We ordered custom fabric (Dawson in cement). The color is perfect and better against stains than the stock Tannon fabric. I do think if messy family members are not a concern the stock Tannon fabric is actually the best choice though.

            I love Room and Board. I have shopped here for 20+ years. In that time I have have always come away happy, with one exception -- The Vela Sofa. Part of the challenge is that I upgraded the fabric to Doss Bone. After nine months of living with this sofa, the Doss Bone has not softened. Meanwhile I keep visiting this sofa at the store and enjoy the soft, flexible fabric that comes standard. That said the sofa is too low to the ground so much so that it's difficult get out of the sofa and it is not comfortable long sits, watching movies, etc. While not an idea primary sofa, this stylish piece to would work well in a bedroom or home office. Still, I remain a fan of Room and Board.
