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 Abbott Chair:

      Really love the subtle pattern we ordered the chair in (mink) and the sleek style melds well with the eclectic style in our family room. We're very happy with our purchase.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The chair arrived with a damaged leg which was a letdown. However, Room and Board customer service was incredible. They ordered us a replacement right away and are letting us keep the first chair until the new one arrives.

      Customer comments about Abbott Chair:

      We've had three chairs, three sofas and a sectional from Room and Board that have all been very comfortable. This chair is really nice looking, but impossible to get comfortable in to watch TV or read a book - anything where you spend much time in it. The cushion feels very flat and offers little support.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery service is always superb. In this case we bought this chair at the outlet and brought it home ourselves.

        We have two in our living room. The cushions lose shape and are not comfortable.
        I plan to move them to a guest bedroom where they will rarely get used.

              Customer comments about Abbott Chair:

              Great product. Fabric is sophisticated, has a lovely sheen, nice "expensive" color/finish. Chairs themselves are study, substantial, stately, they're just... solid. We have a tightback sofa as our main seating option (across from a flat screen TV) and we use these two chairs on the side (side by side), as accents. But we find ourselves attracted to them, even when home alone (i.e., they were intended for guests, post-dinner, etc.). So, we're using them, simply because they call to us. Highly recommend.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was incredibly as described, nice tight delivery window. The delivery men were courteous, competent, friendly, consummate professionals. Careful, respectful of the space, thorough. All around excellent service, which in our experience, is not at ALL the norm with furniture delivery. Great stuff.
