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.

Hate it!

By Kelso

from Chicago, IL

Style Classic/traditional, Mid-century modern

Pros

  • Comfortable fabric
  • Easy to Clean

Cons

  • Cushions lose shape
  • Too deep
  • Too Reclined Seating
  • Uncomfortable Arm Rests
  • Uncomfortable sit
  • Unsupportive

Best Uses

    Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

    This sofa is so uncomfortable. At first, we thought it was great due to the size and "coziness" it seemed to have. Plus, rather than get a sleeper sofa, it was like an extra twin bed for guests without the back cushions.

    4 years later - it is a purchase that we cannot wait to get rid of, and we have felt that way since only after a few months of owning it.

    Pros:
    - Nice as an extra sleeping space for guests without being a sleeper.
    - Modern design. Stock color looks good.
    - Fabric holds up well over time and easy to clean. Still looks new besides being shapeless.
    - Comfortable if you are laying along the couch alone and not sitting on it as you would another, more supportive couch.

    Cons:
    - Cushions lose their shape very easily, are unsupportive.
    - Your behind and legs will fall asleep due to the lack of support.
    - If you want to sit upright, don't bother with this sofa. Imagine yourself reclined fully in the front seats of your car and that's the type of seating you get with this sofa.
    - Uncomfortable to sit and use a laptop, do any other sort of small tasks.
    - Very uncomfortable without an ottoman due to how reclined you are sitting. Must have that extra leg support or it's awful.
    - Arm rests are hard and high. Can't be used to actually rest your arm due to their height. Can't be used to rest your head due to their hardness. Also difficult to reach things on a side table. Very awkward.

    By purchasing this sofa I have learned a lot about what I DONT want.

    Not that comfortable, looses its shape and sheds feathers

    By Skip

    from Sonoma

    Style Eclectic

    Pros

    • Looks good
    • Ok Comfort
    • They Are Useable

    Cons

    • Develops Large Craters
    • Looses A Lot Of Feathers
    • Not Made Well

    Best Uses

      Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

      We have 2 of these sofas in our family room. We use them a great deal. They look well. However the fabric is rough. The cushions loose there shape. They develop large craters so you have to rotate them constantly. Plus both sofas shed feathers all the time. You have to pluck them off daily. That has to be a sign of cheap construction and poor design. We would not buy them again. But now that we have them, we can live with them

        OK sofa but they lose feathers

        By bigal1953

        Cons

        • Cushions Sink

        Best Uses

          Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

          My biggest complaints are that the sofa is constantly shedding feathers. I have to pick them off 2-3x per week. I sink into the cushions after awhile. The fabric is rough and not that comfortable. We have the stock fabric. But it is holding up well. Sofa seems well made. If I were doing it again. I'd look around more and spend more money. They are not that bad and were a good value. That is why I rated it a 3star. I would not talk you out of buying it but be aware this is not a fine designer sofa.

              Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

              I was going on maternity leave and wanted to replace our couch with a more comfy place to nurse at night- our condo is not big enough for a nursing chair. I had ordered a couch from a San Francisco based store and it was a disaster to get- over a 3 month delay- finally cancelled and ordered the Orson and it was at our front door in a week! I cannot say enough good things about Room and Board- they have the BEST customer service, I mean the BEST. If you have ever ordered furniture from anywhere else, you will understand. This couch is COMFORTABLE, so comfortable, I can sleep on it sitting up while nursing- it's heaven. My only gripe is that i wish it came stocked in a lighter fabric, like a medium gray- its dark.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Arrived on time and had great communication about delivery with R&B and the driver- could not have gone any better.

              Customer comments about Orson 86" Sofa:

              We've owned this sofa and the Orson chair for about 6 months now. It is a very comfortable sofa. Unfortunately, it sheds feathers at an alarming rate. They come from everywhere; cushions, pillows and the base of the piece as well. We pick up feathers several times a day, and at least once per day, one of us is stabbed by a feather pin in the leg or back. I love Room and Board, and have purchased other furniture from them and have never been disappointed until now.
