Jasper

Mid-century styling meets modern comfort in the Jasper sofa. Narrow arms make the most of the seating space, while tapered legs give Jasper a light profile. Plush, blend-down cushions envelop you and the smaller-scale frame won’t overwhelm your space.

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

Dual flexolator

A Dual Flexolator suspension consists of a tempered steel grid attached to the frame with small springs. Each seat has its own independent steel grid, providing undisturbed comfort for each person on the sofa.

    Customer comments about Jasper 71" Sofa:

    Even though we are using in our master bedroom thought the cushions would have kept there shape better. After sitting on the sofa for the first 15 mintues cushions have already lost shape. Looks like we've had for months instead of minutes. And just in case you're wondering...Im an average size person.

    We have other R&B sofas and cushions have kept their shape with no complaints. This is not a sofa for primary living space.

      Customer comments about Jasper 96" Sofa:

      I was nervous reading all the complaints about the cushions before buying this sofa, but a few months in we are very happy with it. As the salesperson explained quite clearly, the back cushions are down-blend and they're going to behave like down! Yes they are a bit squishy but that's the nature of this material; we have found them easy to fluff up, but if you don't like down/down-blend these are not the couches for you. The seat cushions are firm. We also went with the Dawson fabric; I agree the Merit is a bit scratchy, as some said. We ordered a number of free fabric samples from Room and Board before choosing. These couches look great, and fit in in casual or formal settings. We bought an 86 inch and a 60 inch and they are both in our living/family room.

      Customer comments about Jasper 86" Sofa:

      We bought this couch for our living room in our apartment in SF. The couch seemed like a happy medium between super-rigid mid-century modern styles and the comfortable but unappealing styles of overstuffed traditional sofas. Sleek, yet curl-up-able.

      It did live up in terms of comfort, and it was obviously very well-made. We ended up sending it back for a couple reasons, though: (1) Cushions that lose their shape almost from day one, so the couch starts to look sorta frumpy and sad, and (2) stock fabric that's sorta tacky.

      On the latter point, I'd actually noticed in the SF showroom that another style with the same fabric had a lot of pilling. I brought it up with a sales rep, and she surprised me with a story about how they'd gotten that feedback from customers, so they're treating/processing the fabric differently during manufacturing so that it doesn't pill. Was pleased with this news, so I went with the stock fabric. In the end, though, the new treatment process leaves the fabric looking I have to say a little shiny and sorta tacky, even if it doesn't pill. The pilly fabric in the store still looked classier somehow because it was more muted.

      Anyway, we ended up deciding that Room & Board was overall a little too contemporary for us -- the other things we've bought have had a little more of rustic modern feel. It's my first experience buying real furniture, so I'm learning! But I have to say that the Room & Board experience was overall really delightful. I was very impressed with their customer service.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Customer service and delivery teams were absolutely wonderful. Pretty great that if you decide something's not for you, they'll pick it up and take it back without charge.

            Customer comments about Jasper 86" Sofa:

            Room and Board furniture lives in my two homes and two offices. One month ago we bought the Jasper sofa in a light fabric for our Manhattan apartment. The design is beautiful and it is a cozy and comfortable seat. Two weeks ago a guest spilled red wine all over the seat cushion. We kept our cool but secretly were upset as this is a brand new couch. We applied some club soda to wet the stain and then laundry spot remover. Miracle of miracles the red wine came right out. There is no sign there ever was a spill. This is amazing fabric on an amazing sofa. Thank you Room and Board for being so smart about making the sofa with this stain resistant fabric. We have been fans of your products for a long time and now have an even more committed relationship with you!

              Customer comments about Jasper 71" Sofa:

              Jasper has firm bottom cushions and soft, down-wrapped, back cushions – perfect for lounging or for entertaining. We chose it because we live in a small apartment with one public room and needed a versatile sofa that was neither too casual nor too formal. My initial sense is that it's made with high-quality materials and craftsmanship though I think it takes years of use to really tell. That said, I have a number of friends who have earlier versions of this sofa, and it seems to have only gotten better with time.

              Service and delivery comments:

              R&B gave us a 2-hour delivery window and the delivery men actually arrived about ten minutes early. That was fine by me. Quick and painless.

I have had rave reviews from friends who have crashed on it overnight. When the back cushions come off, it's almost as big as a twin bed & very comfortable.

                      Recently bought the sofa. Was not given the choice of cushions at purchase only to find our a month and a half later that a foam option does in fact exist. Ordered the foam options (extras cost). 6 weeks delivery time. Our old cushions were very saggy and poofy. The foam cushions are firmer but look just as puffed up and rounded. Perhaps the model in the store is just old and the cushions have flattened, but I was going for a sleek look with slim-line cushions - and this sofa is anything but sleek..
                      I am so disappointed with the way it looks even with the new cushions!
