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

Dual flexolator

A Dual Flexolator suspension consists of a tempered steel grid attached to the frame with small springs. Each seat has its own independent steel grid, providing undisturbed comfort for each person on the sofa.

      Customer comments about Metro Chair:

      I spent way too much time trying to find the perfect replacements for a leather set that was well past it's time. Finally checked out Room & Board and fell in love with the Metro collection. Ordered the 3 cushion sofa and ottoman. Within a month we ordered the Metro Chair and my living room is complete. I love the neutral fabric so I can accessorize with different color throws and accent pillows. The quality is top notch and we even let the dog enjoy the sofa & chair but her favorite spot is the ottoman! Once I talk the hubby into permanently removing the Leather set from the home I will be ordering again from R&B for the lower level family room and he can get his oversized flat screen to watch hockey!

              Customer comments about Metro Chair:

              Fabric seems very sturdy. Holds shape well, so far. Doesn't attract dirt. Comfy to sit and lounge on. Great value.

              The drawback of most formal chairs and sofas (we have the matching sofa too) is that they are very large. For each unit of sitting surface, you waste lots of floor space. Also, by being upholstered all around, they hide their frames; if the frames were designed to be attractive hardwood, that would be preferable. But that style of chair is not easily available in large sofas and matching chairs.
