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 Murphy Chair:

    Ordered this chair without sitting in it - big mistake. Looks fabulous, wonderful green cotton velvet fabric, beautiful round tapered legs, interesting and versatile shape yet with a small footprint. However, the back is too short and still leans back, so you have to support your head using your neck muscles. A short back should be vertical, so that your head is supported on your spine. This is an ergonometric disaster, and it's also uncomfortable with the foam cushions (worth extra for down cushions). I love the way it looks, but will have to be returned.
