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 Watson 90" Sofa:

    I purchased two sofas. They are nice but the seat cushions are too large and fit too tight together. Everytime someone gets up from the sofa the entire sofa looks sloppy and has to be adjusted.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was great...trying to return sofas not so great. Handed that project to my interior designer. We shall see.

    Customer comments about Watson 78" Sofa:

    So we got this sofa for a small TV area in an open den. We needed something relatively low and no more than 80" wide. We also wanted something firmer than the Easton Sofa, which we had to return for a number of reasons. This sofa is comfortable overall. It is a firmer sit, rather than a sink-in sit. The back cushions feel somewhat springy (better than sagging with little support, like the Easton) but not quite natural -- you are aware of the springiness. We've had this sofa for about six months and the back cushions are beginning to lose their shape. Perhaps that's just inevitable. We turn the cushions over and switch them around every so often. This is what you should do with sofa cushions. Still, it's no longer as clean a look as when we purchased it. This, too, may be inevitable. This is a shelter arm sofa, meaning it is high and meant to be enveloping. The side bolsters, therefore are important and add a softer, more pliable surface to rest your arm. So far, they do the job. The high arm should be a consideration if you are considering this.

      Customer comments about Watson 78" Sofa:

      This couch comes in so many colors. I purchased the Poppy. It is bold, and it looks great. I'm small, so the cushions have held up well. This couch has a firm seat and a somewhat soft back. If you're short, it is great for napping on. if you remove the back cushions, there is even more room to stretch out, although I rarely do this.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Great. On-time.

        Customer comments about Watson 90" Sofa:

        We are very pleased with our Watson sofa & ottoman. On the practical side, we love the high quality construction, firm support & durable fabric; on the fun side, we love the grey with shots of black & white fabric -- a new way to look at neutrals that blends well with our existing furniture & that we can change seasonally with colored toss pillows & throws -- not bound to just one look. We thought about this purchase for a long time & did a lot of research (including in-store touch, feel & sitting) & comparison to sofas at other stores. I feel like we won: this is definitely the right couch for us.

        Service and delivery comments:

        No one can match Room & Board's delivery service -- always prompt, courteous & eager to help.

            Customer comments about Watson 90" Sofa:

            The 90" Watson sofa exceeds our expectations! The scale of the sofa is perfect for our modestly sized "great room" yet holds it own as a principle piece of furniture. We are very pleased with the clean, classic styling and one must look closely to notice dust, crumbs, or cat hair on the beautiful fabric. Room & Board comes through once again! We expect to enjoy the sofa for many years to come.

            Service and delivery comments:

            As always with Room & Board, the service and delivery was flawless. The delivery was difficult, up a steep driveway, but the crew didn't complain when they carried the sofa up the hill! We were impressed.
