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.

            Good couch, but requires maintenance

              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 ....

                      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.

                              Customer comments about Anson 86" Sofa:

                              Took me months to settle on a sofa - I have cats, one of which scratched my old EQ3 leather sofa and my leather ottoman, boo! My requirements: beautiful classic lines, a firm seat (due to my partner's persnickety back), a fabric that holds up well, and all at a somewhat reasonable price. I absolutely LOVE my Anson sofa. Love the color too, it goes so well with my milk chocolate brown vintage Falcon chair.

                              When the sofa was delivered and unwrapped in my living room, it had a dirty spot on the back cushion, barely a shadow but definitely a dirty spot. The guys who delivered it attempted to clean it, but it remained. They sent someone out a couple of days later, and he finished the cleaning job, now I can't tell that spot was ever there. Great customer service!

                              Also want to mention that I really appreciate the flat-rate, very reasonable delivery fee, compared to another unnamed MCM store that 'taxes' delivery as a percentage of the sales price. Really??

                              Would definitely shop R&B again!
