Q. Where are your products manufactured?

We look for the finest craftsmen for each of our products, and as a result we work with manufacturers all over the world.
We currently work with manufacturers in Vietnam, China, Indonesia and India.
Before establishing a relationship with a new manufacturing partner we carefully vet them against our stringent criteria for ethical business practices and quality control. We personally visit with every factory we work with on a regular basis to ensure that these standards are maintained.

Q. Which products would you recommend for families with young children?

There’s no age restriction for furniture napping — and many of our articles are great for both children and the child-at-heart.
Ceni is a low-maintenance, durable, springy sofa that hides dirty fingerprints and spills well (without pointing fingers or naming names—probably because it’s a sofa). It’s also built with an easily-accessed low-profile silhouette for even our smallest customers to grab a seat. Busy parents will also love that Ceni comes ready for action right out of the box, no assembly required!
For tons of room on family movie night, the Burrard sectional has deep, down-filled cushions for everyone to spread out on. The only thing you’ll have to worry about sharing is the popcorn—Netflix membership sold separately.

Q. Which products would you recommend for dog owners?

For pet owners with four-legged friends that like to treat the family sofa like their fancy new dog bed, we recommend leather as a great place to start. The Sven sofa in Charme Tan leather already comes with a well-worn vintage patina complete with natural scratch marks and variations that will blend right in with Buddy’s paw marks.
For a hardier leather that has a more consistent finish, our oxford options like on the Worthington and Alcott sofas work well with pups that are just as much bite as bark.
Need more help? Read our top five tips for choosing pet-friendly furniture on the blog. You can also read all about how to keep your leather looking great in spite of the love and attention that your dog gives it.
We also invited our favorite Particle Pooches to a photoshoot on our most popular articles and invite any aspiring doggy furniture models to strike a pose and get involved using the #articleDogs hashtag on Instagram.

Q. Which products would you recommend for cat owners?

While most upholstery fabrics and our luxurious velvets might attract the wrong kind of attention from a cat (you see your beautiful new article, they see a fancy scratching post), we think there’s a lot to love about leather for cat-owners.
We suggest a tough leather in our oxford series (like the contemporary Echo, mid-century Sven, or stylishly retro Matrix) or a distressed leather like our rustic Nirvana sofa that will draw less attention to any accidental cat scratches and scuffs.
When approached to take part in a photoshoot with our articles, the Caticles looked us straight in the eye while knocking a vase off one of our coffee tables. We took this as a decline to appear on the website for now.

Q. Do you use flame retardants in your furniture?

As a general principle, we strive to remove or reduce the use of chemicals in the production process.
The vast majority of our products do not have any flame retardants added during manufacturing. However, there are currently a small number of items that do contain flame retardants. We are working with our manufacturing partners to have these removed. If you are concerned about the inclusion of flame retardants, we encourage you to reach out to us in advance of your purchase to enquire about the specific product you are interested in.
All of our products are compliant with revised California technical bulletin TB-117-2013.

Q. Are finish colors shown in your photos accurate?

All photos on our website are taken by professional photographers under lighting conditions that are typical in a residential home.
We endeavour to accurately show the finish color and texture as best we can. How these photos display on any individual monitor and output from any printer can vary based on the different settings. If we can be of assistance in selecting the right furniture for your situation (style, dimensions, color, etc.) get in touch and we would be happy to help.

Q. Should I choose a leather or fabric sofa?

It depends! We wrote a whole blog post about how to choose between a fabric and leather sofa to help you.

Shipping, Delivery and Assembly

Q. How much do you charge for shipping?

Basic shipping to nearly everywhere in the contiguous U.S. and Canada is a flat-rate of $49, no matter how large your order is. You can also choose to upgrade your shipping to in-room delivery, or even have us assemble it for an additional fee.
Orders of $999 or more (before tax) qualify for free ground-level front door shipping, and discounted shipping upgrade options.
If you live in a particularly remote area there may be additional delivery fees, but we will always inform you before these are charged.
Some of our smaller items are shipped using standard courier service, in which case shipping is just $19. This charge will be reflected at checkout.
See our shipping page for full details of shipping charges.

Q. Can I choose an upgraded delivery service (in-room or assembly)?

We offer a number of shipping options:

  • $49 (or FREE on orders of $999 or more before tax) - Ground floor/front door. Our friendly delivery driver will bring your items to the front door or closest possible ground floor location. They will not enter the residence or go up stairs. This is a great time to cash in some favours from your burliest friends if you live on the top floor of a 12-storey walk-up.
  • $99 (or $50 on orders of $999 or more before tax) - Inside room. The delivery team will bring the items into the room of your choice and leave them for you to revel in the excitement of unboxing and setting up your new furniture. Burly friends all mysteriously busy? In that case, this is a great option.
  • $169 (or $120 on orders of $999 or more before tax) - Inside & assembly. The delivery team will bring the items into the room of your choice, carefully unbox and assemble them for you. They will not take the boxes away with them as they are required should you want to make a return. Some people who choose this option like to go into another room of their house, then come back in once the delivery team has finished and their new furniture is all set up and pretend they are on an episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” This is optional.
We encourage anyone who feels they would be unable to get their order from the ground level front door to their room of choice to consider one of our upgraded shipping options at checkout.

Q. How will my furniture ship?

In order to ensure that your new furniture arrives in pristine condition we generally ship using carriers that are specialized in shipping furniture.
If you place an order for a smaller item it may ship using a standard courier service, in which case you will be charged a lower fee for shipping.

Q. Can I track my shipment?

Once you have placed your order you will get an estimated delivery date in your order confirmation email.
When your order leaves our warehouse we will send you another email to let you know.
You are also able to log in to our website to see any updates to your order status.

Q. Will I get a call when the furniture is going to be delivered?

In most cases, once your order arrives in your local area our delivery partner will contact you to arrange a day and time for delivery.
Delivery appointment availability varies depending on the local delivery partner in your area. Generally this will be between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, but the specific partner in your area may be able to accommodate deliveries outside this time.
If your order was shipped using a courier service you will not be given advance notice as to when they will deliver.

Q. Can I place my order on hold/can you deliver after a certain date?

Yes, we would be happy to put your order on hold for you.
As soon as you place the order give us a call, or simply reply to your order confirmation email and we can put it on hold until you advise otherwise. As soon as you are able to receive the order, just let us know and we will ship it right out to you.
Our delivery partners  will only ever deliver to you when you are there to receive the order and have a pre-arranged delivery appointment.

Q. Do you ship internationally? (i.e. outside the US and Canada)

While we love to hear from fans from far flung corners of the earth, we currently only offer our standard shipping to customers in Canada and the contiguous U.S.
We also ship to Hawaii and Alaska for a flat fee of $350 on top of our standard delivery charges. See our shipping page for full details.

Refunds typically take between 5 and 10 business days to process. Please note that as much as we would like to, this delay is not something we are able to remove or expedite - this delay is in the banking and credit card system.

Q. What happens if I no longer have the packaging for the item?

We strongly encourage you to keep your packaging for 30 days in case you decide you want to return it.
You can still return your item, however we charge a reboxing fee to ensure that we are able to package the item appropriately to survive return shipping.

Q. Do you have a showroom?

Part of the reason that we are able to offer such great prices on our products is that we don’t have any showrooms or sales people. You can find out more about our direct-to-you model here.
We encourage you to check out the hundreds of customer reviews on our website to get a sense of the quality of our furniture. You can read even more customer reviews on our ResellerRatings profile.

If for any reason you don’t love your new furniture simply let us know within 30 days of receiving it. We will arrange for our shipping partner to pick it up and get it back to our warehouse. Provided it is returned in the original packaging and condition we will happily provide a full refund on your purchase - less any shipping fees. You will be charged a standard shipping fee for the return ($49 for most of the US and Canada), but unlike other furniture retailers there are no additional restocking fees.

Q. What do you mean by ‘Retail’ price?

You will see on each of our product pages a 'Retail' price.
The price represents the estimated regular retail value of a comparable item of similar quality available from other retailers.
Find out more about how we calculate this price, and why we are able to offer such great value.

Q. Can I read reviews of your products and service?

You can find product reviews on most of our product pages. If there are no reviews on the page, it is because we have yet to collect enough reviews from customers who have purchased that product. If we have reviews for a similar product in a different color, fabric or finish we will display those reviews.
All reviews are from verified customers, and all reviews that meet our simple review guidelines are published.
You can also read customer reviews of our service here on our website, and on our Reseller Ratings profile.

Q. Can I order swatches before I purchase?

Yes, we would be delighted to send you swatches.
Get in touch with us and let us know which fabrics or leathers you would like swatches of, and where we should send them.
