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 Boden Chair:

        I love this chair. But I would consider a different fabric than the Vic Haze fabric that I chose. The chair is well-made, solid, and has a great style. The ottoman makes it absolutely, perfectly comfortable. I would buy it again. I'd by 2 if I had the room. But the Vic Haze loves animal hair and shows it really clearly. I have to brush it all the time--and it does not brush off easily-- to keep it from looking like dowdy cat-lady furniture. I never brush the linen couch that it sits next to.

          The chair, along with the ottoman, is really comfortable for reading and watching TV. It looks great with my vintage mid century modern furniture. The chair is very large, so it's not for small spaces.

            We just picked up the chair from the distribution center yesterday morning. Not even 24 hours later, we noticed that one of the hind legs split. We called Room & Board and they were very helpful. They will be replacing the chair. My only other concern is the material is it seems to get lint balls. The chair design is great but wish the legs were sturdier.

            Great chair, I use it for sitting.

            I noticed a friend sitting on the couch with his legs on the armrest of the chair while someone was seated in the chair. It looked like the chair was not able to handle that sideways pressure because the whole thing kind of wobbled side to side as he adjusted his legs. That concerned me.

                Looks great and best use is to curl up with a good book. Semi reclined position is nice but for short periods of time. Maybe not a long movie. Fabric very soft to touch. Construction is a concern over the long term. Not sure if it will hold up.. If you are over 225lb may want to reconsider.

                  This chair is my throne and is always the first thing people notice when they walk into the room. I fall asleep in this chair every night. While I love the feel of the fabric, I'm cautious with it as well. It show's my seat print when I sit for a long time and I am petite. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.
