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.

Poor quality

By Begonia

Pros

  • Comfortable sit
  • Great design

Cons

  • Cushion developed a "divot"
  • Fabric pills & stretches

Best Uses

    Customer comments about Chelsea 94" Sofa:

    Within a few months of getting this couch, the seat cushion developed a "divot" the size of my heel, and it's never gone away. The fabric pills terribly, and this also started after just a few months. Every few years, I have to take out a small manicure scissors and snip off the hundreds of pills. The fabric stretches, too, each time you sit down. None of this has ever happened to other furniture I've owned, before or since. BTW, after considering dozens of fabrics that R&B offered, we decided to go with the one that it's shown in. We were strongly advised that this material would hold up best with the tight cushions. While it's true that the couch still looks great after many years, that's only because I restretch the fabric right after we get up, and I periodically spend several tedious hours pruning the pills. For the price and the great rep this company has, we expected a much higher-quality product. I would never buy from R&B again.

        Customer comments about Chelsea 94" Sofa:

        I am very unhappy with this sofa. They re-made it for me once and although it resolved some flaws the first sofa had as far as frame etc, the fabric is now the issue which was obviously flawed when they made the sofa. It marks throughout the sofa that look like stains and nothing can be done.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I also had several service issues which took month to get resolution on. Room and Boards products look beautiful in store but after the experience i have had i dont think i will ever be able to purchase with them again.

            Customer comments about Chelsea 94" Sofa:

            Beautiful sofa, comfortable to sit on for extended periods of time, large enough to nap on, easy to clean (yes, I already dripped salsa on it). Granted this sofa is brand new, so we'll see how it holds over time. Other reviews and visiting the shop validated my liking of this enough to buy it. VERY well made. Love the look and the feet. Looks great dressed up with pillows.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I have the 94" and the delivery guys brought it up one flight into a townhome. There was a tight turn at the top of the steps, we had to remove a handrail and the feet to bring it up. They did gouge a seven inch trail on the ceiling and deeply scuffed one corner of the sofa. I had a taper coming in anyway for other wall repairs so this was easily fixed. Otherwise, not sure how they would have handled that. In fact, they really didn't appear sorry - they made it seem like it was my fault for ordering the longest sofa and had such tight quarters. As for the scuff, I didn't see it until they were long gone and I unwrapped it from the cellophane. It's on a back corner near the window, so I dusted off what I could and pretend it's not there. Not the best crew - I've had many others and they were always fantastic.

              Customer comments about Chelsea 89" Sofa:

              I spent a lot of time looking through sofa styles and reviews on room n board before choosing the Chelsea sofa and left back sectional piece for my living room in daly oatmeal. A big thank you to the reviewer who posted a picture of their Chelsea sofa in gray fabric paired with a left back sofa to make a beautiful sectional piece. It was that particular picture that my daughter and I both liked so much we decided to order the Chelsea. I have been able to put the two pieces together to make a cozy sectional and also move them apart and they look great both ways! The main complaint I saw written about the Chelsea was that the fabric wrinkled after sitting on it. I spoke with a design associate who explained that because of the Chelsea's construction this can happen but it is easily smoothed out. She also assured me that if it wrinkled too badly like one reviewer mentioned they would work to make it right. I have not had any major problems with wrinkling. It is barely noticeable. I absolutely love my Chelsea sofas. They are versatile, comfortable, sleek, and wonderful to lounge on. My daughter has taken naps on them. They are firm, but it is a comfortable firm. They feel great and look even better.

              Customer comments about Chelsea 94" Sofa:

              I specifically waited a year to write this review, so that I could really test the comfort of the Chelsea sofa as well as how well the cushioning held up over time. Verdict: I absolutely love my sofa! The sofa's clean, simple design fits nicely with my overall apt's look & feel, yet I like how the matted/brushed metal legs give it a sophisticated "dressy" quality.

              The 94 length is perfect for sitting with others (quite a few friends have given compliments) or for reading while completely sprawled out. It even has plenty of room after 4 cushions have been added. Now, I am not a heavy person, so I can't speak to how well the sofa's cushioning would hold up for a larger individual.

              The one *con* was the ridiculously long (and twice-delayed) build + delivery time. This was very annoying. For full disclosure, this was a size 94/custom (Oatmeal) color order but the 2-time delay was unheard of.

                    Customer comments about Chelsea 66" Armless Sofa:

                    When we first started the odyssey that was our couch hunt my boyfriend and I where in perfect agreement that we wanted a modern couch, but when I happily proclaimed I wanted something nice and squishy that we could sink in to and he countered by saying he wanted a firm cushion our couch options narrowed to a slim Goldilocks zone. We must have sat on every modern couch in DC including every couch in Room & Board.

                    Then, it was couch love at first sight. I knew it was the one the second I spotted it from across the store. I said yes to the couch. But which configuration to choose? Arms, no-arms, ottoman, chaise, small , big, an intimidating number of options. We measured, drew diagrams, calculated prices, and debated pros and cons. Finally, we agreed on the armless option. I have to confess I was a little worried about the couch not having arms but for our limited space it was the only option that left room for the addition of a chair.

                    And now, siting in my living room on my wonderful couch I am happy to report that it is perfect. It is so clean looking, so comfortable to sit on (for both of us), and so perfect for our space that I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase.
