Real Room & Board Customer Reviews

We enjoyed reviewing Room & Board and think this brand is a great choice for shoppers who are:

  • Those looking for quality crafted furniture and in-home delivery service so you don’t have to worry about unpackaging or setup.
  • Those who don’t mind paying for delivery service.
  • Those who don’t plan to put heavy wear on the sofa as their return and warranty policies are not clear.
  • Those who would like to buy from a company that has local stores they can visit.

Positive Experiences:

“I’ve been looking for couches for awhile and needed something durable and comfortable for our large family. These are perfect and have been holding up great!”

“This couch is exactly what we needed. We live in a Chicago Workers Cottage built in 1895, so the living room tends to run a bit narrow. We were looking for mid century modern couch that was a bit tailored and somewhat narrow in depth so as to leave plenty of room for a coffee table and walk way from the front door. This couch fit the bill!”

Negative Experiences:

“We returned the sofa. It looked nice but was uncomfortable to sit on. If you sat in the middle of a cushion, it flopped up around you on the sides. If you sat on the end of a cushion, it went completely flat and you were sitting on springs.”

“After only 18 months the cushions compress almost completely when we sit on them. And we don’t sit on them all day, not are we over 200 pounds. Now we have to pay to replace the foam from a third party, as clearly Room And Board’s foam is incredibly cheap and not resilient.”
