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.

    Very comfortable recliner with a narrow footprint, great for smaller areas.

    Service and delivery comments:

    We had a special request to have the furniture delivered the day before it was scheduled to be delivered as we would be leaving town unexpectedly on delivery day. It worked out perfectly and was indeed delivered ahead of schedule.

          Customer comments about Westport Recliner:

          I bought it because it felt comfortable and looked very attractive. Unfortunately it lost its appealing look pretty fast. After 7-8 months the leather started showing excessive bubbles and wrinkles, and it keeps getting worse and worse. For this prices I would expect that the chair would keep looking good at least for a a few years, not just first 6 months. Not the case here. The store offered to take it back and to refund an amount which they would decide fair, but did no tell the criteria. I figured that the deduction would be substantial and decided to keep the chair, but would not buy it again.

              Customer comments about Westport Recliner:

              I bought this chair for my husband to use but it is quickly becoming my favorite place to sit. The footrest comes out from under the chair in three sections, giving a clean line when it is tucked away and good support when it is in use. The legs have a sensuous line which adds to the pleasure of owning it. I chose the leather upholstery and it is perfect for sitting - not too hot, doesn't wrinkle, luxurious feel. In our small living room, the chair sits off the ground and that adds lightness to the feel of the room.

              Service and delivery comments:

              What can I say about the delivery? It is repetitive but true that the delivery service is the best I've ever experienced.

                      We purchased two of these chairs and they are positioned on each side of the fireplace. Originally, they were going to be in our media room but we found them to be too large for the space. The chairs are super comfortable and gorgeous. We are very happy with them and the look.
