Orson

The ultimate in relaxation, the large scale of our Orson sofa envelops you in comfort. A deep seat invites sink-in lounging, while tall back cushions offer 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 86" Sofa:

      I've had it for two months and have no complaints. I was somewhat hesitant to buy it based on a few reviews of feathers coming out of the cushions, but so far so good. I haven't seen any feathers yet.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The guys were on time (EARLY) and were very respectful. I had a minor issue with them getting the carpet dirty. I wrote my comments in a review and a Room and Board rep contacted me right away with solutions to my issue. VERY impressed with their customer service!!

        I can't say enough good things about this couch. I have had it for more than three years, and it feels like I just bought it yesterday. The quality is outstanding, and the fabric (I have otter) is comfortable, durable, and easy to clean from the accidental spill.

          I bought the sofa and loveseat. The color charcoal is a darker fabric that I usually don't go for but it really pops in my room with the white wall and art! Very well made, love the down pillows. So far no shedding of feathers that other people commented on.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Very professional and they know where to put the furniture just right. They don't dump and go.

              Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

              We have had 2 Orson sofas for almost 3 years. They still look good but they are extremely uncomfortable to the point where I have to limit the time I sit on them. The cushions are hard and develop pits. This puts stress on my back and butt. Additionally they shed feathers constantly. Their down-proof cover is about as down-proof as a sieve is waterproof. The company's recommendation was that I vacuum them more often. It has gotten so bad that we are going to have new cushions custom made, which will cost hundreds of dollars.

              I am clearly in the minority in not liking this sofa but be forewarned.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The only snag was that the delivery guys had a hard time getting it through my apartment doors. I live in an Nyc railroad so we literally had to push it through each door frame leaving scuff marks... So this couch is pretty wide just a heads up.

                      I want to love this sofa and loveseat; the design is awesome. BUT the feather shedding is outrageous. We even had Room and Board come out and replace the cushions and it's still ridiculous. After two years, we're constantly picking feathers from every cushion and throw pillow. Multiple days a week. The cushions also need to be fluffed constantly. I really think Room and Board needs to find a foam or synthetic down alternative. You simply don't expect this kind of shedding from a store like Room and Board.
