Will you custom build for me, or must I pick from the catalog or website?
Most of our catalog items started out as someones custom order. We pride ourselves on being able to bring your vision to life. Production runs can be in the thousands, or just that one special piece you need to finish a special project. We can work from your sketch, doodle, or CAD drawing to make your project a reality.
Where are your products made?
We have a large manufacturing facility right here in the USA, in the heart of furniture manufacturing, in High Point, NC. Most of our custom pieces and small production runs are handled right here in the USA, where we can offer fast turnarounds, custom sizing, and one-offs, as your projects demand. When needed, we also have the ability to manufacture off-shore for large runs and price sensitive budgets.
Does your price include packaging?
Yes, unless otherwise noted, all of our quotes include packaging suitable for the item and material. Tables are normally shipped in heavyweight, double-walled corrugated boxes, with foam wrapping and formed corrugated corners as needed. Stone is typically shipped in special wooden crates, foam-lined, and equipped with “tip and tell” and “rough handling” indicator labels.
How long will it take for shop drawings?
Shop drawings are prepared by our CAD specialists, usually in just a day or two after receipt of your purchase order and deposit check. Your rapid approval and return of signed-off drawings will greatly enhance our ability to deliver your tables on time.
