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 Anson 86" Sofa:

    Such a good-looking sofa! A great design and a lower profile makes it perfect for smaller living/family rooms. Our family room is not very large and we wanted a sofa with room for at least three people, but not bulky or domineering of the room. This 86" sofa was a perfect choice. Even though it is longer, it is low and don't seem big in the room. We spend each evening lounging on it watching television, reading and visiting. The sofa still looks brand new, even after over a month of heavy use. The seat cushions are soft and the back cushion is more firm which works well for us. The tobacco leather is rich but not too dark.

    Service was amazing, as always.

    I love the shape of the couch and the leather, red is a pretty accent. My husband is 6 feet and I am 5 feet 2 and we both have found the couch uncomfortable. I don't know exactly what it is? The position of the back, lack of support... it's primarily foam.

            If you are looking for a good looking piece that you don't need to sit on, the Anson is the sofa for you. If you want something to hang out on, this won't do. The back is the wrong height, and the cushions too firm. We regretted our purchase right away, though it is very pretty. Form has to follow function for us I guess. Too bad.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The delivery was painless and all the people I dealt with were friendly and helpful. The return was simple, if not quick. All in all, great customer service.

              Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

              Having lived in an NYC apartment for 6 years with an "apartment sized" sofa, I have been dreaming of the day where I could lay out flat on a sofa while watching TV and still share some space with my husband and dog. Well that day has finally come!!! After looking at about every sofa in stores and a billion online, I decided this was "the sofa" and had the tough decision of going with the 78" or 86" version. I knew the 78" was a safer choice but I wanted to get as big of sofa I could get without looking disproportionate. I went with the 86" version and I am so glad I did. With the clean lines and low back, it give you lots of seating without making the room feel visually crowded.

              It has been two months since we got the sofa and the cushions are maintaining their shape but there are some wrinkles in the leather on the cushions that make it looks like it has been sat in. It doesn't take away form the look and design in my opinion. I prefer a comfortable lived in modern feel as opposed to a cold/hard/steral modern feel. To maintain a very rigid shape the cushions would have to be as hard as rocks. They give a bit so the leather stretches and you get some minor rippling. If you are concerned about this I would suggest going into the store and look at the floor model in person to see if it bothers you. The floor model in NYC looked great but had the same rippling and it completely didn't bother me.

              Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

              I have to say right off the bat that I've never spent this much for a piece of furniture. Low and behold, after three years of drooling over this design and not being able to find another less expensive one with the same look, I bit the bullet. I went the custom color route as I thought black leather was a much better fit for this couch and I believe I was right (check out my photo and you can decide for yourself). After resolving the squeaky legs (only needed black felt pads to do this), I noticed something "off" with the right arm. When I compared it to the left side, I realized there was almost no padding in it. So... they sent out a repair/inspector representative who immediately noticed it was a defect and ordered a replacement sofa on the spot. Honestly, it was not too noticeable, but with the amount I spent, I have to say I wanted perfection. After about 5 weeks, my new one has arrived! Poor delivery guys had to wait while I went over it with a fine tooth comb (not really a comb...). There was a slight scuff on one leg, which they made an appointment to get fixed (wonder if it will be the same guy). I gave it five stars because it truly is a very stellar sofa and the leather is ridiculously soft and high quality. It's also a comfortable sit and just looks awesome. I'm totally laid back and willing to work with them until everything is perfect, just not sure I should "have to" with the cost. All in all, I do highly recommend this sofa as long as you are willing to help R&B get things right. Perhaps quality control could be stepped up a notch; however, their customer service trumps any other furniture store!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Really fantastic service all around from the store to delivery guys to customer service.
