Our goal is to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. Therefore, we accurately represent/describe each item to the best of our ability keeping the age of the piece in mind. We are happy to provide you with as much information as possible before purchasing. PLEASE READ DESCRIPTIONS THOROUGHLY, MEASURE YOUR SPACE, AND ASK QUESTIONS OR REQUEST ADDITIONAL PHOTOS IF DESIRED. All sales are final. Unlike most Mid Century dealers, we go over every inch of our pieces before they leave our showroom. Wood pieces undergo a 5 step restoration process to clean, nourish, remove scuffing/paint, hydrate, and bring out the original finish. All joints are tightened, missing hardware replaced, and all metal/chrome polished. We keep our items as authentic as possible. In our opinion sanding and staining a designer Mid Century piece will only diminish the value as the vintage authenticity and character is lost. We never pass the restoration costs onto our customers.
