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 Room & Board Metro 88" Three-Cushion Sofa:

    I have had 2 metro couches in my family room (which I designed) for the past 10 years, and I've got to say, they are as good as new. I wash the pillow cases every season, and vacuum the couch regularly, too. Every other year I've had the sides of the couch steam cleaned (when I have my carpets cleaned- I figure might as well!) I absolutely LOVE that I can wash every pillow case AND remove every pillow. You'd be amazed what a difference it makes in comfort when a couch is clean. They are probably the best furniture purchases I've ever made. I bet I'll get at least another 10 years out of them! Not one tear anywhere, and the pillows still do an excellent job cushioning! They really are in excellent shape! WORTH EVERY PENNY!

      Customer comments about Metro 88" Three-Cushion Sofa:

      I ordered this in the Desmond Charcoal Microsuede and it is hands down loved by everyone. I believe in spending money on quality in the hopes that it saves long term and I have a feeling I have accomplished this with the purchase of this sofa. I fell back in love with staying home because of this piece.

      The personnel at Room and Board in DC couldn't be more helpful and the delivery team is beyond reproach. Thanks R & B, I'll definitely be back.

        Customer comments about Room & Board Metro 88" Three-Cushion Sofa:

        It took a couple of months to receive the sofas in the fabric I selected. I ordered 2, 2-cushion 88' sofas, and one matching large ottoman. I selected a salt and pepper fabric. I love the sofas, they are so comfortable, and look great. The cushions do lose their shape after a couple of days, but can be flipped over and are perfectly fine. For the price I paid, and for Made in America products, I think these were a great value. You could easily spend $1500 on a sofa somewhere else that is poor quality, and not Made in America.

            It felt compelled to write this review after just cleaning my sofa which took a beating after a party this weekend. I thought for sure the cushions were going to have to be replaced with all the red wine and food stains but all it needed was a little soap and water and it's as if nothing ever happened. I've had this sofa for six years and it looks just like new. Great product.

                Not only is this couch super comfy, it sort of goes with everything too. It's great for sitting, lounging, sleeping, watching far too many episodes of The Americans in a row, and even eating take out right out of the box. I would buy two more if I had the room.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Room and Board came and measured my small apartment doors first to make sure it would fit and the delivery men put it right into place. They even fluffed the cushions. How thoughtful!

                      We loved the Metro until all the feathers started to poke us. It started off fine, but after the first year of use we started to get poked a lot by feathers and then all madness started and we had to pull feathers out every day. We sent it out to get reupholster in leather. Wow what a difference that made So comfy and great looking.
