My credit card statement shows (2) charges. Why is this ?
Orders that require cushions and umbrellas or are expected to ship in more than 2 weeks are charged a 50% deposit with the order and the balance when the items are completed. For example, a chair ordered with cushions will be charged 50% with the order and the balance when the chair and cushion have both shipped completing the sale.
Where can I see your furniture in person?
We have a large showroom at 830 Burlway Road, Burlingame, CA. which is open Monday through Friday 9-2:30 by appointment. We exhibit representative pieces of most of our collections.
This is our only showroom at present.
We have furniture in a number of commercial and public spaces around the world. Please call us and we may be able to direct you to a nearby location that is using the furniture of interest. Some of our projects and clients may be found at this web page or by clicking the link in the menu bar on top of this page.
Can I get additional sets of cushion covers?
Most of our cushions have zippers which allow you to remove and clean the outer cover. We can also make a second set of covers if you would like a second look for your set or need to mend animal damage. Please call us for a price quote.
I live in the North. Can I leave the furniture outside in the winter?
Yes, this is not a problem. The materials used in outdoor furniture are made to withstand the elements. You may want to cover the furniture to keep it clean and we would suggest bringing the cushions inside to a ventilated space to minimize the chance of mold or mildew.
Do you have anything on sale?
Please visit our outlet department for overstocked and closeout outdoor furniture and umbrellas.
