**Important Notice for Local Customers:**

-Final Sales Policy: these orders are considered Final Sales and are not subject to cancellations, returns, or exchanges.

In the unlikely event that your item is damaged during transit, we’re here to assist you. Please review the following steps:

-Inspection Upon Delivery: Upon delivery, it’s crucial to inspect your items for any damage. If damage is discovered, it’s imperative that you note it on the delivery slip before signing. Failure to do so may void the shipper’s insurance.
-Documenting Damage: In some cases, shipping companies may request pictures of the damaged item to process the claim.

**Product Care:**

-Climate changes, fluctuations in temperature and humidity, and exposure to sunlight may cause furniture to expand or shrink. It should be noted that these will not affect the structure of the piece and to avoid it, we suggest the use of a humidifier or the placement of a glass with water inside or underneath the furniture. This may help to maintain humidity.
-Strong sunlight may cause fading or other changes.
-Avoid placing furniture next to heaters, air conditioning, and open windows.
-Do not place hot items directly on the furniture.
-Many of our items are handcrafted using reclaimed wood. Given the nature of the wood, there may be slight variations in color and texture, uneven grain, knots, or stains. These are natural imperfections that only add to the beauty of the product.


-Do not use furniture polish, oils, or any commercial cleaners on your furniture.
-A dry cloth or duster is recommended to wipe down the pieces.
-Spills should be cleaned up immediately to avoid stains.
-Trivets or hot pads should be used to prevent burn marks.
-Except for lacquered pieces, waxing using natural wax is recommended every 6-12 months to keep wood pieces looking their best. Do not use any silicone-based polish.
