Orson

The ultimate in relaxation, the large scale of our Orson chair envelops you in comfort. A deep seat invites sink-in lounging, while a tall back cushion offers plenty of head and neck support. We include additional throw pillows for even more coziness. Maintain the look by regularly fluffing the throw pillows and cushions, or allow them to relax into a more casual look.

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.

    Not impressed!

    By JGOR

    Pros

    • Comfortable fabric
    • Comfortable sit

    Cons

    • Beware - Castors Fo Feet
    • Beware - Castors For Feet
    • Cushions lose shape
    • Fabric Hard To Clean

    Best Uses

      Customer comments about Orson 32x26" Ottoman:

      The castors on this piece cannot be removed or replaced with feet. That makes the piece move around A LOT which is a nuisance for us.

      The fabric is comfortable but everything sticks to it (food crumbs, dust, etc.) and it is very difficult to clean even with a lint brush or vacuum cleaner.

      We have a lounger on one end of our sectional. The foot end of the lounger is at least one inch higher than the seat cushion end after only a month of use. It is going to look awful after a longer period of use!

        Customer comments about Orson Chair:

        We love this chair. It is big enough for me and my husband to sit in. It's super comfortable. It is big and so it is best for either a larger space or if it will be the main piece of seating in a room like an office.

                Customer comments about Orson Chair:

                When initially sitting on this couch in the store, we thought it felt like pillows, but realized after ordering that was because thousands of people have sat on those couches...and ours delivered were significantly less comfortable when delivered. It's been two months and it's starting to loosen up but still is tough.

                The cost seems high compared to fancier looking couches. This one is a little plain but comfortable for a come home and lounge couch.

                  Customer comments about Orson Chair:

                  When a tall man and a short woman can find comfort and coziness in the same chair, you have found perfection. The fabric is soft but seemingly indestructible when challenged by boys and pets. The seating is supportive underneath soft down cushions. It is attractive. We all love this chair for reading, watching TV, snoozing (with ottoman), or visiting with guests. Also adored is the corresponding L-shaped sofa. After hunting for two years, we were thrilled to find it.
