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 Room & Board Boden Chair:

        My husband is a big guy - 6'3"/300# - and it is hard to find a chair that is comfortable for him and makes his design loving wife happy. He loves this chair & ottoman! It is super comfortable for reading or watching TV. The leather is beautiful, and I love the transitional design that can work with multiple styles. This is definitely a keeper chair and we are thrilled with it!

          I thought I knew what life was about, then I sat in this chair. If I could only own one thing in this cruel world, it would be this chair. It has the perfect shape for almost any situation- sitting, sitting and talking, sitting and typing on a computer, sitting and drinking coffee, sitting and reading, etc. Simply put, I love this chair! I would end the relationship if my boyfriend didn't like this chair.

            Customer comments about Boden Chair:

            I love this chair! Yes, I said it's a little too deep, at least for my body, so I put a pillow behind my back. Problem solved. Even without it's ok. The Cognac leather fabric is sublime -- and it's going to age very, very well and develop that just-so gorgeous patina. The matching footstool is terrific as well. If I have one wish is that the seat would have a bit more cushioning to it.

            But like any chair you're going to make an investment in: go sit in it! Don't order from a catalog or online. You need to touch and feel.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt. Staff was courteous. The entire experience was perfect, not that I didn't expect that based on prior R&B purchases, but it was. It also delighted me, an early morning person, to have been the first delivery of the day. Sweet.

                  Customer comments about Boden Chair:

                  Our biggest disappointment in this chair is that we ordered two and it took Room and Board four, yes 4, times to get two chairs that finally looked similar. The way the arms were rapped were completely different, cushion heights were not the same,stitching inconsistent, etc. Yes, we are very picky, but I did not feel we were asking for too much when wanting our chairs to at least look alike. By the time it was all said and done, the chairs are really comfortable. The ottoman is a must for the full comfort feel. The leather does stretch and pucker a bit.

                    Customer comments about Boden Chair:

                    I absolutely love this chair. It's contemporary with a kiss of modern. It has a high back which was perfect for my space. The leather is so soft. The chair is roomy but not uncomfortably so. My husband even commented on how comfy it was. I think an ottoman is a must with this chair - you'll definitely want to put your feet up.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery was great. The men removed their shoes (which I love) and put it exactly where I wanted it.

                      Love this chair - the look, the feel, everything. My only (small) complaint would be that it is somewhat light in weight...it has been knocked over by my neighbor's sons on a couple of occasions. Seemed to handle the fall(s) just fine.

                      I previewed this chair in the store then bought online. Just got this chair today and so happy about the purchase. Fits perfect in the space and has such great lines it's visually attractive. After my brief sit in it, I can tell that some previous reviews are spot on: this chair's back will wrinkle as will the seat. It's a bit disappointing for me because I'm a bit particular but, any one who owns leather knows that's coming. The Hubs took one sit and said "Wow, this is really comfortable".
