Don't Call Him Fat

Johnny isn't fat; he's just big-boned. With the simplest conceivable form, this playful interpretation of modernism brings lines that flatter any space, details that make people take notice, and comfort that will make everyone feel right at home. Reverse stitching reveals the raw character of leather hides. Johnny's unique arm and back structures incorporate spring mechanisms, which means every surface is built to provide a comfortable seat. Float him in the middle of a room, and people can perch on his back during parties, or use him in the media room and relax as the kids crawl all over him. Don't worry — Johnny's big and tough. He can take it!

Dimensions represent maximum sizes with legs and cushions in place for non-sleepers. Sleeper mechanisms and tufted seats can alter seat height. Sleeper sofas add approximately two inches to the overall, arm and seat heights. Tufted and tight seats subtract approximately one inch from seat height. Legs on most pieces can be removed to ease ingress. Please remember that our furniture is hand-built and that all dimensions are approximate.

Choices, Choices, & More Choices

Built just for you and your home.

Because we build everything to order — from scratch, for every customer — you can tailor your furniture to match your tastes perfectly. Here are some finishing details that will help you make your piece feel one-of-a-kind.

Fabric & Leather Colors

No one has a range of fabrics and leathers as extensive as ours...period. And we specialize in materials that are leagues ahead of our competition in terms of toughness and cleanability.

Your furniture is built to order in any of our 1,271 fabrics or leathers. Additionally, we're happy to build your piece using material that you provide (COM/COL).

Seat Configurations

Customize your furniture's look and feel by selecting the cushion setup. Want a firmer or softer seat? We can help with that, too. Note that some configurations, including bench cushions and tufted seats, are added-cost options.

Tight Seat

Better From The Beginning

Our furniture is made in the U.S.A. (not <ahem> "North America") in our factory in North Carolina. We build exceptional furniture from the ground up, and the careful choices we have made in our construction methods separate the custom sofa we build for you from the stuff you get off some other website or catalog.

Detail of Sofa Frame

Old Fashioned

We build furniture the old-fashioned way, starting with a hand-built frame designed to last a lifetime. Many companies talk up their "kiln-dried, hardwood frames" but they are nothing more than CNC-cut plywood. Eww.

Our frames are truly handmade. Each piece of poplar is cut on a bandsaw, doweled, pinned, and screwed, the way traditional furniture frames were made 100 years ago. They take about eight times as long to build as machine-cut frames, but we believe it's well worth the extra attention. They're heavy, sturdy, and long-lasting. So long-lasting, in fact, that we warranty them for life.

A Better Spot to Sit

We think some of the most beautiful parts of a sofa are the ones you never see. Unlike most furniture companies that extract margins by opting for lower-grade components, we make excellent durability and comfort a standard feature.

Our US-made pocket coil suspensions provide more working wire per square foot than any other system, giving you a seat that is comfy, sag-free, noiseless, and guaranteed for life. Our cushions utilize a high-density foam core wrapped in a quilt of down and feathers, and pillows are a down/feather blend. Not down with down? No problem — we have excellent alternatives.

Detail of Sofa Construction

Made in the U.S.A.

Our furniture is built in our own dedicated, 25,000 square foot factory in Hickory, North Carolina — the capital of fine upholstery.

Unlike most furniture companies, we own our factory. This enables us to better control product quality, more immediately deliver new designs and innovations, ensure that our talented team has a safe and rewarding work environment, and maximize your quality-to-price ratio. Besides, have you tasted the chicken-fried steak in Hickory? Yum.

What Do You Guys Know About Furniture?

We know homes. We know furniture. And we know how to help.

What do we know? Quite a bit, it turns out. We have decades of experience in the world of interior design. Roger, in addition to building a career consulting clients the world over, created the Emmy-nominated show Sell This House, which educated home owners on design and real estate decisions. We've written and spoken all around the country as experts in color and design trends. And our team of furniture craftspeople have over a century of shared experience in the industry, with many of them representing second- and third-generation furniture makers.

New to R+C?

Allow us to brag a little bit.

While you may just be learning about us, we've shipped our hand-built furniture to every state in the nation and around the world.

In addition to building sofas for thousands of families, our furniture can be found in the offices of brands you know, including Starbucks, Google, Uber, Microsoft, Nike, CNN, and, like, a whole bunch more.

We've been written about, blogged about, and there's talk of a major studio making a feature film about our Higgins Chesterfield sofa. (Okay, that last one was a joke. But our Higgins did have a supporting role in Deadpool 2.)
