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 Harper Chair:

        I bought this chair & ottoman in red to be an accent in a formal living room with lots of art and fabrics. It quickly faded to pink and clashes with all the colors in my room though it hasn't been used enough to be broken in yet. The chair is like new. Room and Board has informed me that they do not take responsibility for leather products fading. I have never seen fading like this in any leather product before. (The chair gets little use and does not get any direct sunlight.) R&B's resolution is that its my problem and informs me:
        "[Y]ou can try a leather conditioner...this should help to remoisten the leather and bring back some (not all) of the color. The other option is to have a leather repair company re-dye the pieces for you to the color of your liking."
        If R&B's leather furniture must be de-dyed so soon after purchase they should not sell it.
        Room and Board has been my go to furniture store for high quality, American made furniture from a store with good service that stands by its products. I have furnished two homes with them, as well as buying gifts for my sons. Very disappointed, former, customer.

          Customer comments about Harper Chair:

          We bought two leather harper chairs in the smoke color. I cannot say enough about how wonderful these chairs are. The style is clean and the thing that I enjoy the most is that you never would know they are recliners by just looking at them. I like that they don't add the "recliner bulk" look. These chairs really completed our family room while making the space comfortable. Best sitting chairs...
          Cannot recommend enough

            Customer comments about Harper Chair:

            Terrific and comfortable chair. We purchased in leather. The price gave us pause, and was part of the reason we took several months to decide to do it (we were not in a hurry). But we decided it would be a timeless piece to stay with us for a long time, and really wanted to do something very nice for our living room. We are glad we did it - it is a handsome yet comfortable chair that even our 6 year old loves. And the chair's slim lines fit well in our small house. We feared the leather would be "slippery" and make it hard to stay seated, but just a try-out in the store convinced us otherwise, and it has remained true in our house. A very nice purchase.

              Customer comments about Harper Chair:

              These chairs are great, thing is I had meant to order the recliners. Before the delivery guys even left the house Room & Board had arranged the exchange and offered to leave the chairs until the new ones arrived. We wanted the recliners as it's a small space near the TV and there isn't enough room for a couch to lounge. We wanted a recliner that was a low profile, to not block TV viewing, and something that was sleek, low profile. This looks NOTHING like my father's chunky recliner. Great chairs. And for us, even better recliners.

              Service and delivery comments:

              We were well informed through out the process. All dates were met and everyone was really polite. I was the one that created an issue. I ordered two chairs - not the recliner version of the chair. Literally, before the delivery guys left, they arranged an exchange and I had a call from Room & Board. I could have lived with the chairs, but you sprang into action and helped me out. I would have always pined for the recliners.
