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.

        We really are enjoying this so far. The material is soft but looks strong and modern. You can really lounge back into it but also sit up with a pillow to help. Nice clean lines but not stuffy.

            We looked around quite a bit for a sofa that looked good, was well made and was comfortable for TV viewing. Also, we didn't want to wait for custom fabric. This sofa was the perfect choice and we are very happy. We are planning to order the matching ottoman next.

                  Customer comments about Dean 88" Sofa:

                  Our life is hectic. We have two big dogs and a baby. This sofa holds up to them all. It's our main sofa in our TV room, so we use it daily. I am overwhelmed with how pleased this sofa has transformed our room. The back of the sofa is the perfect height to be able to put your arm stretched out across the back. My 6'3" husband and my 5'3" frame both fit on this sofa nicely. There's no evidence of my 100 pound and 50 pound dogs having ever sat on it, while they do daily. We were happy we ordered the fabric swatches before ordering.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The delivery was so smooth. The crew had the sofa inside and perfectly arranged, but then also offered some care tips with cushion rotation and reminded us about how to find service for the sofa, should we ever need it.

                    Great sofa. I already wrote a review, but since this appeared in my inbox again, I'm writing it a second time. The sofa needs to come with the option to order arm covers! Sofa arms take a lot of wear and tear, and arm covers with matching fabrics extend the life of the sofa by years!! I'm happy to pay for this feature, but not offering them at purchase places a burden on the consumer to find a local person to do the work. As things turned out, the sales rep contacted us and said we could indeed order the arm rests from R & B. We're still waiting for the R & B production people to contact us, but hope it's soon. We will be ordering the arm covers.
