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.

Reinforced joinery



A webbing suspension is made by interweaving strips of nylon material to create a resilient platform. The elasticized webbing is securely attached to the wood frame with staples. Webbing suspensions are ideal for thin-profile styles that require maximum support in minimal space.

Sunbrella material is awful

By GFon

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Style Modern/contemporary


  • Comfortable
  • Great Design


  • Difficult to clean
  • Stains easily

Best Uses

  • Dining Room

Customer comments about Ava Chair:

We bought 6 Ava chairs in the dark blue Sunbrella material, thinking that, based on the reviews and material attributes touted online, this material would be more sturdy than others for use at a dining table. Even though we love the style of the Ava chair, I have been HUGELY disappointed in this fabric. These dining chairs are used with a dining table that we also bought a R&B. The table has a stainless steel base / legs. After less than 3 months of use, each of our chairs has a permanent line across the inside back where they have touched the stainless steel underside edge of the table. We also have multiple stains from everyday, easy use. Cleaning the fabric is tricky as it also easily gets water stains from any liquid.

So buyer beware - do not use Sunbrella material with a stainless steel base table and know that just because this is Sunbrella, it very easily stains. It is not at all durable for food and table related things.

We are huge R&B fans and frequent buyers - but we are hugely disappointed!!

    Customer comments about Ava Chair:

    I LOVE this chair. After a LOT of searching at all the usual national suspects and smaller boutiques here in NYC, we could not find a comfy but child-friendly chair. We both have bad backs and the Ava chair was love at first sit--firm seat, perfectly angled back, and handsome looks. You will want to linger at the dinner table with these chairs. While it was a tad pricier than we wanted to spend, the sunbrella fabric in light grey sold us. It matched our grey/graphite table and grey couch in our open living/dining area. I was given a swatch of WHITE sunbrella to test - mustard, ketchup, coffee, and red wine sat >24 hrs and then cleaned up beautifully - you can't tell even on the white, so I knew the grey would be fine and would last us for years to come. All in all, highly recommend!
