    Shipping & Returns

    1. Shipping
    We are happy to provide shipping estimates for clients interested in purchasing our work.
    We provide a guaranteed maximum shipping cost at time of purchase of the items. If when we come to ship the items, our shipping cost is less that estimated, you will be charged that lower cost.
    We are happy to ship using the customer’s preferred shipper where practical (some of our furnite is quite large). Shipping does not include local taxes or customs duties, which are outside of our control.

    2. White glove shipping

    Where available, we also offer white glove shipping at additional cost. With white glove shipping, we ship to your home, unpack and assemble the product for you. Please let us know when ordering if you require this option.

    3. Shipping times

    Most of our products are custom orders, or part of limited edition small batch production. This means that there can be a time between initial order and shipping. Estimated shipping time is given on the product page for each product.
