Hess

For those who love contemporary lines but seek extreme comfort, the Hess leather sofa is the perfect place to unwind. A low-slung frame and thin arms don’t take up much visual space in your room, but the deep seat and blend-down cushions create great space to lounge. Designed to relax over time, the cushions will develop a more casual look while still maintaining their plush feel.

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.

Reinforced joinery

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 Hess 102" Sofa:

This couch lost its shape within the first year of owning it. We were told to mangle the cushions regularly to help it keep its shape. The zipper busted on one of the back cushions after maybe 3 times of unzipping to take out cushions to fluff and place back in where they belong, (they tend to slide around inside the leather cover). They sent someone out to fix zipper, which meant that they re-zipped the broken zipper, and I can now no longer use it to fluff cushion, because its not actually fixed, and I am afraid to unzip any of the other zippers. So now I have to mangle the cushions with the covers on them, which means they never quite look in place. The couch also looks like its slants in the middle now, due to wear. we have only had couch for 2 and 1/2 years.

      Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

      This sofa is perfect. I was looking at the Wells, but when I went to the showroom, the Wells felt like I was sitting waiting for an interview at a big law firm. In other words - looked good but not so warm and friendly and meant to be so. Hess is opposite Wells. My fiancé and I sunk into it, and immediately there I was, Don Draper and I, having Lamb Vindalu and IPAs watching Sons of Anarchy. Hey, it works for us. The Rottweiler won't harm this fifth avenue leather, either; can see the dark hair but it's ok. It's going to be with us for several years. And we LOVE it. Bought a charcoal addison book shelf wall unit to go with; perfect.

      Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

      NON Toxic and Made in the USA! I ordered the Hess Leather Sofa in the New York Leather- The comfort is superb, the design is beautiful. I love the leather- guests compliment it and sing its praises. It is the main sofa in our living room, and gets consistent daily use, and the cushions are constantly loosing shape and need to be fluffed daily. This does annoy me because the sofa looses its perfect lines and begins to look a bit frumpy after use.(this may not annoy everyone)
      The con with the leather cushions is that we cannot flip them, we can only fluff and rotate them. So there are "wrinkle craters- in the leather after watching a movie ETC-- This sofa might be perfection if the bottom cushins were stuffed with spring- instead of with down and foam

      Service and delivery comments:

      I have had a comedy of errors with Service and delivery: Firstly was my fault- I ordered the 79" Leather Hess and three weeks later when it arrived I decided to exchange it for the 89". R&B generously offered to exchange it with no service charge for the return. In the meanwhile they told me i could keep the first couch if I took great care of it. So i babied it- and I was told it would be inspected upon return. When the 89" was delivered I saw the delivery guys drop it which chipped and dented the leg.
      They haphazardly took the 79" return without inspecting it- or covering it and left. I called room and board to request a replacement leg for the one that was damaged upon delivery- The following week R&B charged my credit card $300 for the 79" return couch looking like it had been sat on.-- I called to complain-- saying that I had sat on it-- but it was kept cleaner and more pristine than when it was delivered Also saying that the delivery guys were rough with it and I cannot be responsible for an inspection that happened the following week at the factory. R&B reversed the charge. I waited 3 weeks for the new leg to arrive, R&B came to replace the leg, and after they replaced it, they realized that they had ordered and installed the wrong color leg-- so now my new couch and two mismatched legs. They said, sorry we will order you a new one. Three weeks later the new leg arrived and again R&B came to the house- this time with the correct leg - undamaged and in the right color- Finally 6 months after ordering the couch -- it is complete.
      This time the delivery guys left their drill bits at my house- so I had to mail their tools back to them.

        Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

        We moved to Washington a few months back and left a lot behind, including our living room furniture. We needed to furnish several rooms, but the living room was the focus of our efforts. We looked at several on-line stores and settled on Room & Board for their style and positive reviews across their wide range of furniture. The Hess sofas filled the need for a mid-century look but the closest store was Seattle and not within range. We took a leap of faith and ordered two 89" leather sofas for an opposed seating group. At about $7,000 delivered they were slightly above midrange pricing for the choices out there at the time. We couldn't be happier, the sofas are beautifully designed, very solid, and very comfortable with a great "sit". They've drawn many positive comments from friends and family and are a favorite spot for conversation...just what we were looking for.
        We should also add that the delivery was on schedule within the agreed upon time frame. The crew was excellent in placing these heavy pieces in our home with no collateral damage. They also gave us the time we needed to inspect each piece for any damage or other flaws, we found none. Overall this was an excellent experience.

          I have a small space and this couch fits perfectly in it without looking too big. Plus I can still lay down fully on it. It's so comfortable that I often don't make it to finishing the shows I watch b/c I fall asleep on the couch.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Couch was finished quickly and they worked with me to make sure I could be there when it came. Whole delivery process took 20 mins.

            I bought this for the living room, expecting to use it to for lounging, reading and watching TV. The color and fabric are great--so is the look. But it's extremely uncomfortable--too short and not deep enough to settle into. Maybe we're too tall for it (I"m 5' 9""), but I am not convinced height is the issue. I've purchased a lot of furniture from Room and Board and this is the first 'loser'. I regret buying it and wish I'd bought another model.

            Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

            We sat in store and loved it. Looks beautiful in our home. The big however here is how uncomfortable it is turning out for us to sit on. The seat height on ours is actually 15, not the 17 as stated. Our leg size is 5 inches, not the 6 as stated. I'm not sure what the actual size was in the store, but we are sort of bummed. After sitting for just a while, me knees and behind ache and fall asleep. It is also hard to find a coffee table low enough to put in front of this since not too many come 14 inches high. I have tried a pillow propped behind me and that helps for a while, but the sit of the seat is also super firm which contributes to the discomfort. I do fluff the inside down filler often but doesn't help. For reference for others, I am 5'2" and my husband is 5'8". Expensive purchase of sofa and two chairs that don't get the use and enjoyment they should. Be careful.

              Customer comments about Hess 102" Sofa:

              We purchased the 102" sofa, along with the ottoman, for use in our family room. We special ordered the caribou color leather, and it is a lovely muted olivey brown. The sofa is simple in design, nice clean lines, but so comfortable. My husband (who was a skeptic when we started the search for a more contemporary-styled leather sofa) is hooked. It has only been about a month since we received it, so I cannot comment on whether the cushions will retain their shape, but with 2 kids climbing on and off (and occasionally jumping on) it, it has done well so far.

              Service and delivery comments:

              There was a bit of a delay in the delivery of the sofa from our originally quoted date, but still within the window of time they tell you it will take for a special order color. Our sales associate in Culver City was great in communicating with us on the status of production. Delivery with R&B is always reliable and great.

              We love this sofa. The leather can be a bit slippery and probably needs time to "wear" down. The back cushions sometimes lose their shape after sitting on the sofa awhile, so I do need to "re-fluff" them up every few days. Otherwise, a very comfortable sofa with the right height for relaxing and watching tv.
