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 Cole Chair:

    I have two of these chairs in a conversation area. They are the perfect size, very comfortable, and elegant looking pieces. Their color makes them exciting to accessorize for each season. It was great to have so many affordable options between fabrics and styles. The suggestions from your staff helped find other great options. It was a great decorating experience. Thanks.

    okay, not great

          Customer comments about Cole Chair:

          Got this as a reading chair for my son's room because of the relatively compact dimensions, but it looks much bigger in my apartment than it did in the showroom. The seat is also *much* deeper than the 34" total depth would suggest, and isn't comfortable for kids or small adults without added pillows/ottoman. Also, would have expected the down cushions to be softer than they are (they feel more like just foam). I like the style, and the velvet (more like ultra suede) fabric, but other than that, I don't love it. I am keeping it mostly because I ordered a matching ottoman that can't be returned without a hefty processing fee. Like another reviewer, my chair has to be replaced because the legs are messed up. They sent it with two left front legs instead of a left and a right; delivery guys screwed them on and didn't notice until I pointed out that it was noticeably lopsided. R&B said the replacement should take a week and I can keep the wonky one in the meantime. But still... For a chair that cost almost $900 all-in, I'm not impressed.

              Customer comments about Cole Chair:

              I keep trying to love these chairs, but the longer we have them, the more unsatisfied I become. They looked lovely initially in their custom fabric, Triad Porcelain. Not sure if it's because of the fabric, but the base cushion is constantly inching forward and unless you are constantly primping them there is a two inch gap between the cushion and the seatback. I usually get the couch (Knox, which I love) and my husband spends the evening in one of the two chairs. After six months of use, the seam on the top of the cushion is slouching down, and I've already flipped the cushions once or twice. Regret this purchase!

                  We love our chair and is a comfy addition to our smallish front room. We have it with the Ian sofa

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery was awesome. When setting up the chair, they noticed that one of the legs was uneven. They ordered a replacement chair on the spot and allowed us to keep the original chair until the replacement arrived. The replacement arrived earlier than expected. Love room and board customer service!

                    Absolutely love the stock color of this chair! The comfort is spot on - we have the chairs in our office/library (which is not a large space- 10ftx15ft) and the fit is just super! I had a vintage goose neck lamp and tables, and wanted a mid-century style chair to match- check out the pic!

                      I am using this in a vacation rental condo at a ski resort that was renovated with a modern style. I needed something durable and comfortable that would appeal to many guests. The Mili fabric looks great with the Ian charcoal sofa sleeper. The chair is comfortable and well made. Some might find the seat too deep. I made pillows to help this. These work well in small-scale living rooms. Our guest book already has several compliments on the modern decor and comfortable furniture.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Order was held at my request due to construction delays. Arrived right on schedule and workers were very careful to not scratch the walls. Great service, as usual!

                        We absolutely love this chair and ottoman, but the legs on both scratch up the floor even with those felt protectors in place (don't stay on). Would be perfect on a rug or carpet. Beware if you have wooden floors - - we've had to place circular pods underneath each of the 8 legs to avoid further scratching and it's kinda unsightly.

                          More than 90% of our assortment is made by American craftspeople. We seek out companies that share our passion for design, natural materials and quality construction right here at home.

                          Fair pricing

                          We understand that it can take a few days or a few weeks to determine if your new furniture will work for you. We encourage you to return or exchange products in a timely manner because damage or wear may result in an adjustment to your final refund. We don't charge a delivery fee for returns or exchanges within the 48 contiguous states. However, original delivery charges are not refundable.
