I’m very excited that you stopped in to check out my shop and have shown your interest in contemporary furniture design and quality craftsmanship. I put my passion for design and making into each piece and blend quality, ethically sourced materials with honest craftsmanship. I strive to provide my customers with beautiful, handcrafted furniture that they can feel great about and will enjoy for years to come.

Shipping details

For smaller items I use USPS or UPS ground. This depends on size and cost.

For larger items, If located in the Baltimore/DC area I will personally deliver the item for $50. Otherwise, I ship via USHIP blanket service or will ship a crated item. I will notify you about shipping times and provide you with information about your carrier and estimated delivery time. I will ship however best fits your needs

- Blanket service is delivered directly into your residence.

- Crated shipments will be provided via a freight carrier and is normally a curbside delivery

Refunds, returns & exchanges

As a craftsman should, my goal is to provide well made, well designed and that’s what you should get. Therefore, I stand behind my furniture and the workmanship involved. I hope to exceed your expectations and warranty my work if it does not. This policy is as follows:

General- I guarantee my products for a period of 1 year in terms of craftsmanship related problems. I will repair or replace items during this period, but the buyer is responsible for shipping expenses.

Movement- this warranty does not include cracking/splitting, warping, cupping, bowing or wood movement and /or environmental issues. I do everything in my power to select the best wood available and try to cut out defects or lesser quality boards. However, wood sometimes had a mind of its own and moves naturally, Issues that occur due to wood movement are beyond my control.

Color/ Grain variations - Wood is a natural material with natural variations. Refunds are not available for wood color, tone, knots or naturally occurring inclusions. I try my best to match the color(s) in my listing but it is impossible to match a listing photo exactly. Wood grain is natural and unique. You should expect your piece to vary in color and tone to any and all listing photos.

- Refunds are not available for custom order items. The customer will be involved in every step of the design process, 3d renderings with appropriate textures will be provided to ensure that you know what you are getting. If there is something you would like addressed after receiving your piece, I will work with you to address any issues you may have.

- Normal wear and tear is not covered under this warranty.

- In unlikely event damage is sustained by the carrier during transit, I will work with the carrier to submit a claim for the damage incurred which I will pass on to you.

- If a repair is deemed necessary, I will repair it at no cost. Buyer is responsible for any and all shipping related charges.

Additional information

Made to order- As a small shop Items are made to order rather than kept in stock. This means that lead times vary which is why they are sometimes a bit long. The benefit of this is that it is very easy to customize your order. As long as the material quantities aren't drastically different, this does not increase the price. In the case that there is a bid difference, Ill let you know the price difference before you need to make any commitments.

Wholesale - If you have a retail space and would like to carry my product i do offer wholesale pricing. If you are interested, please contact me to discuss terms.

Designer Discount- If you are a professional interior designer or decorator I offer a 10% discount. I just ask that you send me some form of proof of professional practice (i.e. website, review, etc.) Contact me to get a discount code.
