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

Webbing

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.

      Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

      We have been looking for a comfortable sofa for quite a while. It is often difficult to find a sofa that pleases the whole family. We are very happy with our purchase. The Anson is firm enough to support our lower backs and the cushions seem to hold their shape well.

      Service and delivery people were accommodating and professional.

      Unhappy with this

        Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

        We are reasonably happy with this sofa. The shape and color of the fabric is stunning (we had the previous stock color dilcrest(?) but it has been wrinkled since day 1 and to be honest, it is not the most comfortable sit in the world. Its okay to sit on, but its not a sofa that you look forward to spending the evening on after a long day at work. Our housekeeper beats the cushions back in to shape for us once a week and after a year of moderate use, they have retained their shape well. It is a very lightweight sofa so if you sit down on it heavily, it will move backwards across a hardwood floor.

        My main complaint is that we moved house a few months after owning this and had to take the legs off so they would not be damaged in transit (normal process and they are removable legs so this should not have been a problem). The legs were unscrewed very carefully but some will no longer set in the right place (the design means they have to sit in a very specific position) and they spin around and look crooked. The whole aesthetic of the sofa is thrown off and when you sit down, because the legs are uneven, the sofa shifts. I have emailed Room and Board about this several times over the last few months and got no response. I feel unhappy that I now will have to replace this sofa when it is still otherwise in perfect condition.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Customer service has not been helpful at all after the sale.

            Customer comments about Anson 78" Sofa:

            This is a great sofa. However, be aware that it is very low to the floor and I'm short. The other thing I have noticed is that if you lie on the sofa for any length of time, the cushion material will start to move around and the seams will be off. Has nothing to do with comfort, just looks strange unless you attempt to realign the seams with the edges of the cushion.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The service and delivery departments of room and Board are excellent.

            Customer comments about Anson 70" Sofa:

            When it was first delivered, I almost sent it back because it seemed too small. It is a very low profile piece... low seat, low back, low arms. And it seemed a little dwarfed by the room.

            Chairs I tried to place nearby seemed huge by comparison. R&B customer service was unresponsive when I inquired about the return policy. So I figured I was stuck.

            But then it dawned on me that I could solve the additional seating problem by simply buying another one of these sofas, which I did.

            That solved the problem of how to have more seating that was not too large relative to the sofa dimensions. And I found a table to put between them that works with the low seats.

            Only strange thing is that the two sofas are not exactly the same color. They're close, but definitely not the same. I haven't bothered to complain to R&B because their customer service after the sale is pretty weak. Why should they care? They've already charged my card.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery guys were great. Right on time. In and out quickly without damaging anything.

            As mentioned above, when I was thinking about returning the sofa, R&B Customer Service was unresponsive and not helpful. They should have a very clear return policy with all the details spelled out. My advice here, be very careful and get your order right. Or you're stuck.
