What is important to consider when purchasing a rug?
Our design team put together a helpful blog post to help provide clarity on how to choose the best size, style, and material for your space. We also have a blog post that shows recommendations for how to design your space around a rug. For any additional questions about rugs, contact us.
Do you have any suggestions on hanging curtains?
When hanging curtains, we recommend you allow for roughly 6" of overlap on either side of the window to give the illusion of bigger windows. We also suggest that you allow for a 1/4" gap between the bottom of the curtains and the floor.
I purchased a pendant light for my space, at what height should I hang it?
Though each space is different, we typically recommend hanging pendant lights approximately 36" above tables and countertops.

Manufacturer Defects or Transit Damages
Defects and damages are an unfortunate inconvenience and we share in your frustration when these issues do arise. Each case is subject to inspection and approval. Please report within 48hrs of receiving the item using the form linked below. If you are receiving white glove delivery from our delivery partners, please inspect the piece before the drivers leave and have them make note of any damages or defects. Defects or damages that occur over time are only available within the first 6 months of receiving the item, after 6 months have passed we can no longer guarantee replacement or credit for the item.
Please Note: Natural materials, such as wood and marble, have variations and their imperfections are not considered defects. As foreign wood adapts to different climates, it can shift in size which can result in cracking. This is not necessarily a defect of the product, but rather a beautiful reminder of its organic nature. Learn how to care for your wood furniture here.
Make a Claim: Please fill out THIS FORM to start your claims process for any defects or damages. This will help us gather all the information in one place and speed up the claim process. We’ll reach out to you as soon as possible with the next steps! This process can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to complete as we work to issue a replacement or suitable solution. We will be working hard behind the scenes to get it resolved as quickly as we can, but are currently experiencing delays in response times from claims.
