Shipping & Returns

Shipping

In-Stock Lead Time

In-stock items will ship within 3-5 business days via UPS. Once your order ships please allow 2-8 days for delivery.

Standard Lead Time

Standard Lead Time items are made-to-order and ship within 2-3 weeks. Lead times can vary depending upon the time of year, size of the order, and availability of materials. We work extremely hard to turn orders around as quickly as possible while maintaining our commitment to producing high-quality, handcrafted products made to your specifications. You will be notified if your order will take longer than 2-3 weeks in our factory. Once your order ships please allow 2-8 days for delivery.

Extended Lead Time

Extended Lead Time items are made-to-order and typically ship within 8-10 weeks of ordering, unless we notify you otherwise. Lead times can vary depending upon the time of year, size of the order and availability of materials. Extended lead-time items typically arrive via an in-home delivery service or a freight carrier.

Shipping Method and Charges

We use UPS to ship most In-stock and Standard Lead Time orders within the continental United States. Shipping charges will be added to your order as follows:

  • $0-$100 - $5.00
  • $101 or more - 10% of total order

Oversize Surcharge

Due to size and/or weight, certain items will require an additional oversize surcharge. This charge is listed in the product description and is in addition to the standard shipping charges listed above.

Special Oversize Shipping Quote

Some of our oversize items require an individual shipping quote as we cannot ship them at the rates listed above. Bulky orders with items too large to be dependably and economically shipped by UPS will be shipped with a freight carrier.  If this is the case, one of our sales representatives will contact you with a shipping quote for approval prior to finalizing your order and payment.

In-Home Furniture Delivery

Please call for an in-home delivery quote for all Extended Lead Time furniture. Price varies depending upon the level of service you require, the item(s) and destination.

International Orders

We are unable to process International orders via web checkout. In order to receive an International ship quote, please contact our store and provide your full shipping address, phone number, exact items (finish, cord color, length, etc.), and quantity you would like to order. We will complete the required paperwork to ship our products; however, you are responsible for all additional paperwork, duty and taxes required prior to delivery.
