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

Sinuous coil

A sinuous coil suspension consists of s-shaped metal springs that are stretched across the frame. The coils are securely attached with clips that allow the metal to flex while still remaining supportive. Because each coil is independently attached to the frame, you'll barely feel it when someone sits down next to you.

      Customer comments about Marcel Chair:

      For me, this chair made my room. It is a super cozy chair that all the tall men in my life love. It should be noted that the seat is pretty deep so if you are on the shorter side, I would definitely recommend finding a little foot stool or buying the ottoman. I have had this chair for 9 months and so far, the fabric still looks brand new!

      Customer comments about Marcel Chair:

      Love the pop of color, really comfy and fabric is gorgeous, but b/c of natural fibers we'll need to be careful! The folks at R&B warned us of this, but I love the chair! No eating near it, that's for sure! Nature of the velvet is tricky.

        We were so happy when this chair arrived. The fabric can be a little tricky, but we usually cover it when we are relaxing with our dogs. The minute I saw it in Room and Board Soho I knew it would be perfect for my home and it is! It is comfortable, stylish and really adds a major wow to the room. It is the chair everyone runs to when they come to visit. I highly recommend!

        Best Uses

          Customer comments about Marcel Chair:

          Loved the chair in the showroom, but the one delivered was a mess--very badly constructed. So sloppy, in fact, that I doubted it had been inspected before it was shipped. I had several friends in for a look/see, and they were all in agreement: return it. However, R and B, with the sympathetic and professional input of my LA salesperson, [@], the return and refund was handled without hassle, and, as a result, I will consider future purchases from R and B.

          Service and delivery comments:

          No, delivery was not prompt.No, product was not in good condition.Yes, customer service ([@], my salesperson in LA) was excellent, and because of his empathetic professionalism I will certainly consider R/B for future purchases.

            I purchased two of the marcel chair is cocoa velvet. The color is a rich chocolate brown - the fabric looks and feels luxe. I describe the chair as a modern twist on a classic wing chair - the style is timeless and I can imagine having these chairs somewhere in my home for years to come. They are both comfortable and great looking.

                  The Marcell is a striking piece of furniture paired with the grey/black colors of the living room. We love that it is deep and wide so big enough to sit with my 8 year old and read together. Little concerned with sticky, dirty fingers on the light color....but oh well.
