Customer's Own Material
We are happy to produce any of our furniture using your own material, either in leather (called COL, which stands for Customer's Own Leather) or fabric (called COM). In general, the additional charge for COL or COM ranges between $100 and $300 per item. We would need to approve the fabric in advance for its suitablity for the item in question, so that would require you to send us a swatch for approval. Once approved, you would need order the material yourself and send it to us here to our warehouse in Bellingham. There is typically a longer lead time associated with a custom fabric order. There are no refunds or returns or any warranties on the COl/COM materials used and the determination of the suitability of a material for a particular furniture cannot be guaranteed.

Temporary Tariff Surcharge
Many of our furniture components are sourced in China, eg, glass, metal and upholstery items. Over the past 6 months, there has been a 10% tariff levied on products imported from China. However, last month, the Department of Commerce enacted, at unprecedented speed, an increase in the tariffs to 25%. It is hard to imagine any other action that will be so detrimental to the US economy, especially to small businesses like us, with a supply chain so intertwined with the sourcing of components from China and elsewhere throughout the globe.
So, rather than raising prices for our products across the board, we have chosen to add a small 5% surcharge to each order until the tariffs are lifted. We apologize for this extra cost. Please know that if the tariffs are eliminated by the time your items enter the USA, we will not charge you for this tariff surcharge. Thank you for your understanding.
