Hess

For those who love contemporary lines but seek extreme comfort, the Hess 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.

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 89" Sofa:

      Couch looks great. Shopping experience at R&B was excellent and the delivery guys were super nice as well.

      I'm still trying to figure out how comfortable it is, though. It's new, and may ease into a more comfortable sit as time passes . But right now it's kind of spongy, not soft, not hard - having a bit of trouble getting comfortable.

      My other concern is the off gassing. I've had the couch for 3 weeks and the smell is still fairly unpleasant. I'm hoping this passes quickly.

      Customer comments about Hess 102" Sofa:

      I love the shape / style of this sofa. I love that it has 2 cushions instead of 3, the legs, the overall look. I also really like the fabric (stock). However, the cushions really lose their shape and sag constantly and it his highly frustrating. It makes me very annoyed at this very large purchase. I am going to contact R&B to see if they can replace the filling in the cushion. If they do, I think this sofa would be perfect and only then would I recommend it. With the soft down filling, I would not recommend unless you don't plan on using daily or you don't mind fluffing your cushions daily.

        Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

        The Hess sofa worked beautifully in our game room. It pleases me because it looks good, and my family likes it because it seats comfortably. It is a deep sofa for a living room, but perfect for a more relaxed room like a den or game room. I read the reviews and checked the dimensions. I felt confident about ordering it because I have never been disappointed by a room & board product. Satisfied again!

          Customer comments about Hess 89" Sofa:

          I really like this couch (and armchair). My only complaint is the height of the arms. I would prefer they be a bit higher so that you could sit sideways while watching TV or reading. It's okay with additional pillows, though. The cushions don't maintain their shape perfectly, as others have mentioned, but that doesn't bother me.

          This is by far my favorite living room purchase. Bought a new home and decided to redo/buy everything new. The couch was the centerpiece. I spent weeks searching for the perfect couch all over NYC, and one look at the Hess and I knew it was the one. Minimal simple design, contemporary look, extremely confortable, deep enough for 1 person to sleep on, and very good quality. The color I wanted was not in stock so this was an order. Entire process took about 6 weeks. Well worth the wait. Very good customer service at the store and on the phone. Great buy!!

                We looked high and wide for a sofa that would be supportive for our backs (not a lumpy, springy sit) and one that could stand the test of time also looking stylish in our sunken den. We love the sofa because its long enough to fit many people. We've even had people sleep on it and they enjoyed a great night's sleep. Our only worry is that with the fabric being mostly cotton, will it stain easier than polyester. We scotch-guarded the sofa before using it, so hopefully that will help. All in all, we love this super comfy tv-watching sofa.
