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 Murphy 81" Sofa:

    We use this sofa as our main seating in our living room, we sit on it to work, watch TV, etc. It isn't super comfortable for long stints, 2 hours+, but does the job. For having such a slim profile it actually is very comfortable to sit on.

      Customer comments about Murphy 59" Sofa:

      I have had this couch for two years, and it looks great. It's beautifully made and wears well. The issue is that it just isn't very comfortable. If you're looking for a couch you want to use to read or watch TV, this is not that couch.

      Service/delivery was excellent.

        This is a light and comfortable sofa. I was tired of huge overblown sofas, and this fit the bill. It is still very comfortable, and the red fabric makes a nice design statement and yet is not overwhelming.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I would prefer more flexible delivery options. 7 am take it or leave it was the arrangement I got.

        This couch is beautiful to look at. It is simply a classy looking piece of furniture. However setting on this couch is like sitting on cement. It is very uncomfortable to lounge on for a long period of time.

          I am very happy with my purchase. I wanted a modern formal sofa to help create a lounge space in my living room. I love the design and fabric color. We have 2 medium sized dogs who shed a lot and it's great for keeping free of dog hair because there is no fabric on the legs or under the seating area.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was on time and in schedule. If only I did not have to wait so long for it to be made.

            I live in a small 1920's bungalow, and the Murphy is perfectly scaled to my space. I loved the Vance teal fabric, and Murphy's unique shape. The cushions arrive VERY firm, but soften over the first couple of weeks. This is a firmer sofa, so more of a formal sit, but exactly what I wanted. I have already had a couple spills on the fabric, and they cleaned up easily when gently wiped up right away.

              Customer comments about Murphy 81" Sofa:

              I have the 59" Murphy in the Total Ink fabric (kids). It's in a very small NYC apartment LR. It's lines are so pleasing, and its high legs are so welcomed in my small space - giving the impression of airiness.

              I am quite short (5'1") and I find the sofa far more comfortable than deeper, plushier ones. It is my go-to seat in the room.

              The back is low, though, compared to most sofas. I am fine with it, as is the Husband, but my teenaged son is not.

              The Total Ink fabric is beautiful, a pleasure to touch, and so practical.

                The couch looks beautiful! Fabric is soft and color is great & vibrant. It's a little stiff-not really a cozy sofa, mostly in the room style and extra seating when company comes. It's great as an accent in a room to your main larger sofa. The color makes a statement.
