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.

It's smaller than you think

Customer comments about Anson 70" Sofa:

When it was first delivered, I almost sent it back because it seemed too small. It is a very low profile piece... low seat, low back, low arms. And it seemed a little dwarfed by the room.

Chairs I tried to place nearby seemed huge by comparison. R&B customer service was unresponsive when I inquired about the return policy. So I figured I was stuck.

But then it dawned on me that I could solve the additional seating problem by simply buying another one of these sofas, which I did.

That solved the problem of how to have more seating that was not too large relative to the sofa dimensions. And I found a table to put between them that works with the low seats.

Only strange thing is that the two sofas are not exactly the same color. They're close, but definitely not the same. I haven't bothered to complain to R&B because their customer service after the sale is pretty weak. Why should they care? They've already charged my card.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery guys were great. Right on time. In and out quickly without damaging anything.

As mentioned above, when I was thinking about returning the sofa, R&B Customer Service was unresponsive and not helpful. They should have a very clear return policy with all the details spelled out. My advice here, be very careful and get your order right. Or you're stuck.

          Good couch, but requires maintenance

          By Katie

          from Menlo Park, CA

          Pros

          • Comfortable sit

          Cons

          Best Uses

            Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

            We love the look of the couch, and it's a great couch when we are not sitting on it.

            The zipper for the cushion is black, which mismatches the color of the cushion fabric. As you sit and move around on the couch, the cushion case/fabric rotates around the cushion, which exposes the side zipper and seams. My husband constantly readjusts the cushion cases/fabrics so we don't have the ugly sides showing up.

            We are glad that there is no back cushion that we need to fluff all the time, but this rotating cushion case is pretty troublesome ....

                    Good lines, loose-fitting upholstery

                    By Anson buyer

                    Customer comments about Anson 78" Sofa:

                    Like the recent commenters below, we were disappointed by the loose-fitting upholstery on our Anson, which resulted in big, floppy wrinkles in the middle of the seat cushions and little creases running perpendicular to the seams. The couch looked like a dowdy secondhand purchase from the day it arrived -- pretty much the opposite of what we'd hoped for. Customer service has been good; they're accepting the return (minus the restocking charge) without any hassle.

                        I am a devoted fan of Room & Board, but this couch was not their best. Seams don't stay in place and fabric isn't very taught, giving it a more casual unfinished look. But Room & Board's customer service is so superior that they happily replaced it for me.
