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 Otis Swivel Chair:

    I absolutely LOVE our new Otis chairs. They are both comfortable and beautiful, which are often mutually exclusive in furniture. They look terrific from every angle, and swivel 360 degrees. Our cat loves them as well.
    The Vance Emerald upholstery was a terrific choice for us-- I'm a green lover, but rather particular about the undertones in greens. They look a bit warmer in some light, and cooler in others-- very versatile. Overall they look rich and inviting.

      Saw and sat in these chairs at a showroom. They are so comfy for such a small footprint. Love the swivel! Ours are in Vance Gray. They sit at the foot of our king bed. If you call to order, you only need to put 30% down, which is nice since custom fabrics have a long lead time.

        Customer comments about Otis Swivel Chair:

        These beautiful chairs have quickly become family favorites. They swivel nicely, which is fun when you have a house full of people to talk to. They're silky soft, which is nice for all of us girls wearing dresses. The color compliments all the different wood tones we have going. The color is both unique and neutral; must be the power of green tones. They are exactly the color of the moss dripping off the trees outside.
        Compact and cozy, great for all sizes of humans. They don't attract the cat much; they aren't scratchy enough to satisfy her. Perfect stage for the napping little dog. I wish the rest of our furniture was this satisfying!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Though late, the delivery driver contacted us repeatedly to give us updates. Really professional and nice to deal with.

          I probably should not have spent so much for a condo full of college boys but the room and board store is practically across the street. The chair is comfortable and compact for the tiny living room in the condo.

                Customer comments about Otis Swivel Chair:

                Had to have Room and Board come out and steam and brush them and they still didn't look great. The ends of the arms look like they have had ten years use. The cording on the seat cushions looks bumpy. The upholstery looks like it has been pulled too tight. And after sitting in them a total of 4 times one of the back seams is coming undone.

                Customer comments about Otis Swivel Chair:

                Love the color and fabric. Size is perfect for a small space. The only issue is the cushion. On one, the seams are uneven and on the other there is some bunching in the corner (not as big of a deal). I spoke with the store and they said a company by the name of Colorado Consolidated Service would contact me. They have not. Following up seems like more of a hassle than it's worth. Would have been nice if they just replaced the uneven cushion.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery and service was amazing.

                  Customer comments about Otis Swivel Chair:

                  We just love the otis as an accent chair, and it met all our needs. It is well made, beautiful, versatile (we love that it swivels), and it has a low profile (important in our tiny NYC apartment). We think the superior construction justifies the cost and plan on enjoying this chair for many years to come.

                      I love my pair of Otis chairs! They provide comfortable, flexible seating with a small footprint. They helped increase my seating capacity in a somewhat small family room. The swivel is great for moving between conversations and TV watching. The rounded shape adds variety to the room. My design consultant in SF, Luita, spent a lot of time helping to select the right fabric (Tepic cement) to go with existing pieces in the room.
