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.

    Customer comments about Carter Swivel Glider Chair:

    This is a very well made chair, comfortable, and doesn't have the squeaking, poor finishing, or other issues found in gliders made overseas. The fabric is beautiful. I am using this as a nursery chair. Great for feeding and holding the baby. It's worth the price.

      Customer comments about Carter Swivel Glider Chair:

      I bought this chair about 2 years ago. It started squeaking a couple of months after we bought it but we had just had our first baby and didn't have time to deal with it then. We haven't used it in about a year. I'm expecting again and debated moving it to the nursery. The squeaking is louder than I remember so I have to buy a new glider. Definitely won't be buying this one a second time. It's a really attractive chair with nice fabric so it's a shame it can't be used.

      Customer comments about Carter Swivel Glider Chair:

      I had a hard time deciding between the three Room and Board swivel/gliders. I'm very glad we chose the Carter. Before purchasing, I was worried that the back was not high enough, but that has not been a problem. I use the chair for rocking, nursing, and reading to my baby - and it is very comfortable. I like the wide padded arms.

      My husband didn't think we needed a chair for the nursery, but has since admitted that he was wrong - and now uses it as much as I do.

      The Carter ottoman does not glide like the other Room and Board gliding ottomans - but I don't miss that feature like I thought it would. You need at least one foot on the ground to rock anyway.

      We haven't had many mishaps requiring cleaning (yet), but the first spit up wiped off with no problem.

      Best Uses

        Customer comments about Carter Swivel Glider Chair:

        We got this chair and ottoman for our nursery 3 years ago. It has held up well, despite being moved and being used for 2 children. I have primarily used it while nursing and the arms are a perfect height and width for that. The back of the chair is where the real problem lies. The shape does not support your lower back and pushes you to lean forward. The back is also really low. I cannot sit comfortably in this chair for very long. It also is very low to the ground, making it hard to get out of while holding a baby. Mine also developed a clunk when you pivot it a certain way while leaning forward to rise.

          Customer comments about Carter Swivel Glider Chair:

          This is a great looking glider, which is why I am so disappointed that it creaks/groans. We use this in our daughter's nursery. It started creaking after 2-3 months of only occasional use. Sitting down and getting out of the chair results in a very loud creak - loud enough to wake the baby. As a result, it really doesn't serve its purpose as nursery furniture. I should add that my husband and I are not big people (both less than 160 lbs.), so that isn't the issue.

          My husband looked at the construction of the chair and says that the creak is due to a design issue - metal spring rubbing into the mount. In other words, grease or lubricant does not fix the issue.

                Customer comments about Carter Swivel Glider Chair:

                We bought these to be the primary chairs in our living room. They look great, are comfortable, and I adore the rocker/swivel. I'm 5'4" and it fits me perfectly. My husband is 6'1" - he says it's comfortable to sit in (and he does often) - but the top of the back hits him mid-shoulders, so it's not his favorite for hanging out in to watch a movie.

                  I was looking for a club chair/rocker combination; and when I saw this one online I liked it so much that I felt I could compromise with a glider. To my surprise, it DOES rock! On line it revealed a part of the swivel frame which I didn't like but compromised again. Well, hooray, it doesn't show at all! My only complaint is it squeaks. Otherwise, I would have given it five stars.

                        This is such a comfy chair. While I imagine it would be wonderful for a nursery, we bought it for extra seating in our great room and it works perfectly there. The doe color is very versatile, as is the style of the chair.
