Description

:: PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE BUSY TIME OF YEAR, OUR HOLIDAY SHOW SCHEDULE AND THE LIMITATION OF OUR 4 HANDS, WE ARE CURRENTLY PROCESSING ORDERS FOR EARLY JANUARY DELIVERY - THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING! ::

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). There is no metal hardware - just professional and strong cabinetmaker-grade joinery techniques, formaldehyde-free adhesives, and a zero-VOC finish that's silky to the touch and 100% food-safe to boot.

We want you to know exactly what goes into making each piece, so you can understand the value of your sofa arm wrap, and feel good about buying and using it. We believe wholeheartedly in transparency! Please read on, and feel free to contact us with any questions once you're done!


:: 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. This raw lumber is resawn and cut to max 3" widths to create the most stable board to resist warping. We laminate these boards 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 3, 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! ]


:: The best finish in the world ::

Your custom arm wrap is finished with three hand buffed coats of Osmo brand hard wax oil. It costs a pretty penny, but it is brilliant for so many reasons:
- It works by penetrating into the wood fibers, strengthening them while leaving the natural surface of the wood to shine. It doesn't sit on the surface like a varnish or lacquer finish, and therefore isn't prone to clouding, chipping or scratching.
- It's incredibly safe for us to work with (Rachel has a chronic illness and is super sensitive to chemicals, so that's really important to us), and completely safe for you and your family.
- It is made of organic resins, waxes and oils, and releases absolutely no (zero!) Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
- This stuff is certified in Europe for use on children's toys! That means children who like to bite things aren't at risk for accidental inhalation of chemicals, which is a risk with a varnish or lacquer finish.
- It's a breeze to clean and maintain - simply wipe spills right away with a damp cloth!


:: No metal hardware ::

Our arm wraps are not screwed, nailed or made with any kind of metal fasteners or brackets. They are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside, and will not mar your couch whatsoever. This also makes them 100% biodegradable.


:: Wood options ::

We make these in either solid cherry, solid maple, solid walnut or solid 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. Simply choose your preferred wood from the drop down menu on the right! FYI [image 1 :: cherry] [image 2 :: walnut] [image 3 :: cherry]


:: Dimensions + Measurements ::

Top panel will be [D] 14 inches x [W] your couch width.

The depth of the arm wrap is set at 14 inches (we can make it more shallow for no extra charge, but extra depth will have a surcharge).

The inner drop is set at 4.5 inches and the outer drop is set at 7.5 inches.

If any of these don't work for your couch, no problem - simply message us!

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 :)


:: When will you receive your arm wrap? ::

Our current turnaround time is 3 - 4 weeks, and shipping is approximately one week on top of that.

Need to gift it before then? 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!
