Description

Welcome to B&B, makers of the original couch arm wrap! The days of precariously balancing red wine while watching TV are officially over.

We make these solid wood arm wraps to order, custom fit for your couch, sofa or ottoman (see our other listings for the ottoman wrap), using cabinetmaker-grade joinery techniques, formaldehyde-free adhesives, and a zero-VOC finish. Your arm wrap will be 14 inches deep with an inner drop of 4.5 inches and an outer drop of 7.5 inches (if you'd like any of those to be shorter, simply include a note when checking out!)

Ready to order? Simply choose your wood species from the drop down menu as well as the width of your couch arm and proceed to checkout! Current turnaround time is 2 weeks.

:: How we make it ::

Once we have your couch arm measurement, we make each arm wrap on demand, custom built for your exact couch.

We start with locally sourced, native species hardwood trees, kiln-dried and milled into rough boards. We re-saw these rough boards to approximate 3" wide strips which are planed, jointed and then laminated with water resistant, formaldehyde-free wood glue, alternating the grain direction of each strip in order to minimize wood movement and maximize strength. Once we have a large panel, we cross-cut it into three panels (the top and each side drop). We then create the final shape using what is called an edge lamination. [The edge to edge lamination is super strong. Our original prototype used a miter lamination, as you may notice in Image 2, but miters are usually end-grain to end-grain laminations which aren't as strong. It's more complicated then that but that's the simplified version! ]

All surfaces are then sanded to a silky smooth 180 before receiving three coats of our environmentally-friendly zero-VOC hard wax oil finish. Our Osmo Hard Wax Oil finish is made of organic resins, waxes and oils, and works by penetrating into the wood fibres, strengthening them while leaving the natural beauty of the wood to shine. It doesn't sit on the surface like varnish or lacquer and therefore isn't prone to clouding or chipping - and most importantly it's completely safe for you and your family - this stuff is certified in Europe for use on children's toys! A breeze to clean and maintain, simply clean with a damp cloth and wipe dry.

Our arm wraps do not use any metal hardware - they are made using traditional furniture joinery techniques. The inside is finished as completely as the outside and will not mar your couch in any way.

We make these in either solid cherry, solid maple, solid walnut, solid white oak, or solid ebonized white oak. The last image shows a sampling of the four woods - please keep in mind that wood, being a natural material, can have many variations in wood grain and tone. We do not stain these, the colour you see is the natural wood grain and tone in all its glory.

We need to know your couch arm width, i.e. thickness of your sofa / couch arm. Image 4 illustrates how best to take this measurement - we recommend using another person, two books and a flat ruler to get the most accurate measurement. Don't apply pressure to the couch, in order not to condense any of the upholstery. Input this measurement when you order, by using the drop down menu on the right!

Please keep in mind that these are custom made for your couch, and we need accurate measurements from you. If any of this is confusing and you need help, don't hesitate to ask! We have often video-call participated in couch measuring :)

Please allow a few weeks for the creation of your couch arm wrap.

FYI! We offer a free emailed PDF gift certificate you can print out to gift! Just leave us a note in the Message to Seller when checking out!

Super light wood so I used command strips to mount on wall. It’s easy to change out books from the side. Love them because they’re unique and easy to use!
