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 Louis Chair:

    The Louis is a beautiful chair that can either fit in a traditional or modern mid century setting. The lines are perfect on the chair, its not too big and it fits nicely in my small living room. I can't speak to the durability of it yet since I've only had it for a month, but my expectation is that it will hold it well. If it doesn't I know that R and B will help if I need. So far so good.

      Customer comments about Louis Chair:

      I have had my eye on the Louis chair for several years now and finally had the space to buy it for. It was worth the wait! So comfortable for relaxing, reading or watching TV. I bought the chair and ottoman in the black and white houndstooth (Trend Salt) and it looks fantastic with my sofa in Orly. Everyone who stops by wants to try the chair out and comments on its comfort.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery guys showed up a little early (they called first to make sure I was home) and delivered furniture for two rooms. They set it up in an orderly fashion.

      Customer comments about Louis Chair:

      This is a very well designed sturdily constructed chair. I'm only giving 3 stars for the time being because of the very hard seat. It is described as having a firm cushion and that the cushion should soften somewhat over time. I hope this is true, because I'm not really comfortable in the chair and I have had guests move to other chairs because of the hard cushion. I'm taking full responsibility for my dissatisfaction because I did not try the chair out before I bought it online. I've been buying furniture from R & B for over 10 years and keep coming back because of the excellent quality for the price point and the unparalleled customer service. Considering my past experience and the excellent reviews of this chair I bought two without sitting in them first. I'm old enough to know better. It's a beautiful chair, just be aware that you may find it not just firm, but hard.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Excellent as always.

              Customer comments about Louis Chair:

              This chair is fabulous. It is a nice modern take on a classic wingback style. I have a narrow living room, and this fit perfectly. It does not take up a lot of space, but looks substantial. I have had the chair for 1 year and the structure looks great. The seat and wood legs have held up really well and doesn't even look worn. I do regret picking too delicate of a custom fabric (Crosby). This is one of my dog's favorite chair and he has roughed up the fabric. I will never have to replace the chair (just re-upholster).

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivered when promised. Great customer service!

                  Room & Board's service is impeccable; the delivery man even took off the legs and screwed them back on for me, so it would fit around a tight corridor corner.

                      My living room is not what you'd call big, so was hesitant to get 2 of these. Was pleasantly surprised that both fit. They go great with my Anson sofa in camel. They're firm but not uncomfortable. I can sit in them for hours at a time. I know they'll be around for a very long time, so well made!! Worth every cent!
