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.

            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.

                    Customer comments about Orson Chair:

                    This is such a comfortable chair, and a great addition to my living room! I was looking for a big comfy chair that I could lounge around, read a book, and fall asleep in, and this is definitely it! It's big enough that two (relatively skinny) people can actually fit it in it.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was within the stated time frame. My chair was in excellent condition when it arrived, and the delivery guys were very helpful.
