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.

Reinforced joinery

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.

    Customer comments about Watson 70" Sofa in Briar Grey:

    The sofa is beautiful, but I had to return it. The cushions on the sides made the sofa feel smaller than I would like. It reduced the seating area for the sofa. The material and the pattern are exactly as shown on the website.

          Customer comments about Watson 70" Sofa in Briar Grey:

          Originally had the Easton sofa, which we loved, but something went wrong with the spring system, was squeaky. So we call R & B and they graciously offered to replace it since it couldn't be repaired here. We were offered the option to replace with a different sofa, so decided to do the Watson. Reason was the cushions on the Easton seemed too soft for my husband and the Watson is a firmer sit. We used Desmond grey (beautiful soft grey) for both. I was worried it would be too firm, and it's not, we love it, it's between too soft and too hard. Just right and lovely. Thank you so much R & B for your wonderful customer service in taking care of this for us, every step of the way was a pleasure. We also appreciate the American flag Made in USA label on it. I have bought many things from here and love every piece.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Courteous, called ahead of time to say when they'd be here, took shoes off for our carpets and were respectful and friendly. Thank you!

            We are enjoying our new couch. We feel that it is good quality in both structure and fabric. As to be expected, it is a bit of a adjustment to go from a couch you have used for 30 years to something new, but we like that it is NOT excessively deep like many couches are today and that you can actually sit up in it without rearranging a bunch of pillows. We look forward to using it for many years.

                  Customer comments about Watson 70" Sofa in Briar Grey:

                  Bought this sofa after knocking down walls in our little ranch house to make our living/dining/kitchen all one room. Like that it's sleek and tailored without looking too formal. It's a comfortable sit for the way we're built (we're not big people), but at 90" it's probably long enough for even a tall person to stretch out completely to take a nap. (We haven't actually spent much time on it yet as we're now remodeling other parts of the house, but so far it seems comfortable for the way we use it.)

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  This is the second time we have purchased from Room and Board (first in San Francisco and now in Atlanta) and both experiences were very positive. We would never buy a sofa without bouncing around on it first, and so we took full advantage of the showrooms we visited. Especially appreciated the design expertise of sales associates who helped us immensely with fabric choices. Pieces were built within the timeframe quoted and the delivery guys were prompt, polite and skilled professionals.

                    This is our primary seating area for our family room. It's big enough to sit more than a couple - three at least are comfortable on it. It seems to be very sturdy and doesn't appear to show anything (yet!). The cushions hold their shape. What I like best is, being short, my feet reach the ground and I don't need a pillow behind my back.

                    I ordered two 78" sofas and they are beautiful! Sophisticated, but not stuffy. Love the Blair upholstery. The cushions are stiff, but am told the cushions will soften with use. The sofa in the store was comfortable, so I am hopeful.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was super fast. Shortly after the delivery truck left, I realized that one of the sofas was damp along the bottom and there was a water stain. It had been raining heavily that day. I immediately called customer service and sent a picture to them. They came back with-in a week and replaced the sofa. Very impressed with their prompt attention and service.
