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.

    I have 2 couches and 2 chairs from Room and Board, love them all. Very well made with durable fabrics. Love the clean lines.
    We were expecting brown tone couch as was Gunmetal swatch but fabric on couch has a grey tone. Not an extreme difference so much as to return but not quite what I expected.

      This couch is mush

      Pros

      • Comfortable fabric

      • Uncomfortable sit

      Best Uses

        Customer comments about Max 88" Two-Cushion Sofa:

        After three months of use this couch is a crumpled, mushy mess. The back cushions have zero support, with the down filling collapsing as soon as you sit on it and continually shedding out through the cover.

        Tried to return, but was told the return period had expired. If we want to sit on this couch we're going to have to get an upholsterer to redo the cushions so it looks presentable and provides any support.

        Not the quality of product or customer service I would have expected from Room & Board.

          Customer comments about Max 88" Two-Cushion Sofa:

          We are very pleased with the 88" Max sofa. It took us a while and several visits to finally make the purchase. We spoke with Michael K. in the Skokie, IL store several times and finally placed our order. We also ordered an ottoman to match but from a different manufacturer. We were a little concerned because the fabric samples didn't exactly match even though they had the same name. Michael assured us that they would match and he was right. Our delivery guys were great-right on time and very efficient. We love our new comfy sofa. The cushions seem a little over-stuffed, but they will probably go down with use. It was our first Room and Board purchase but it won't be our last.

          Customer comments about Max 88" Three-Cushion Sofa:

          We got the Max in Tatum Gunmetal. We adore the look and color of the fabric, but it does snag, making me wonder if I should have chosen the other fabric option. We looked for a couch for a long time before buying this one. We were married eight years before spending any money on real furniture! Overall, we are very happy with this purchase. The couch is extremely comfortable! One downside is that the cushions always have to be fluffed to look nice and feathers do escape.

              Customer comments about Max 88" Two-Cushion Sofa:

              We ordered the fabric in the Tatum Grey and it looks and feels great. The couch is supremely comfortable and perfect for sitting, watching TV, or taking naps. We also ordered the ottoman that we use to turn then couch into sectional when my husband and I both want to lay down to watch TV. When we're not using the ottoman, we just put it against the wall for additional seating. The ottoman is large, so it takes up a fair amount of space, but we think it was a great purhase for versitility purposes. The only minor complaint is that the back cushions are softer than the seat cushions; therefore, they shift forward some when you sit back, requiring some readjusting/reshaping of the back cushions. Overall, we LOVE the Max Two-Cushion Sofa and highly recommend it.

              Service and delivery comments:

              First time Room & Board customer, and I was very pleased with my experience. The staff was extrememly helpful, and not overbearing, when we were picking out our furniture, as well as ordering. The whole process could not have been simpler (minus our personal indecision with such a vast selection). Delivery was effecient with no problems, and actually occurred at the front end of our expected range of devliery dates (which pretty much never happens with customized furniture orders).

              Customer comments about Max 88" Three-Cushion Sofa:

              Love the two-cusion Max. The fabric is a winner - Dawson Cement. A simple light gray with a slight herringbone pattern. Great for kids and family lounging. Sophisticated; but comfortable, although the cushions are pretty tight and stiff…I'm sure they will loosen over time. The fabric matches our paint PERFECTLY (didn't plan it!). We used Sherwin Williams Collonade Gray 7641. Really love the two together.

              In the showroom, our designer draped the large blanket of fabric piece over the Max and I brought in my own throw pillows to see how the colors work. It helped make my decision go a lot easier (using the pillows to decide the color). It's our second room and board sofa and we will always order our sofas's from R&B.

              I only wish I could have ordered the sofas in a length just a few inches shorter; but we can live with the length in this room size. We ordered two 88" sofas for a family room that's 16'x23'.
