All our pieces are authentic, vintage and true to the original design and characteristics of the items presented, with the large majority of pieces being produced between 1950-1990. We do not carry any replica pieces, mass produced box store pieces or handmade items, unless otherwise noted or relevant to the retail design industry.
This also means that many of the pieces we stock have been around for around 50 or more years, and are not expected to be in "new” condition. Please be sure to view all photos for damages/imperfections and the listed Class + Condition Rating for more information on any given piece. As a rule of thumb, we do not offer any pieces with structural damage, major visible damage, or items that we wouldn’t keep in our own home.
All our items are priced in Canadian dollars (CAD) and do not include applicable taxes, duties, or import fees (if applicable in your country). All and any imposed fees, from your local government, selected carrier or other third party that result from a purchase of any item, service or product from our site are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Prices of in-store and online items (vintage and new) are subject to change without any prior notice.
2. Appointments (Furniture + Objects)
Please note that both studio locations are strictly by appointment only.
Viewings: Contactless and In-Person Viewings at our studio are welcomed and can be booked through our Appointment page. As we do not keep all pieces in studio, there is a possibility that we are unable to have an in person viewing. In this case, we are happy to communicate via video platform, or send additional photos to ensure confidence with your purchase.
Order Pick-Ups and Local Delivery: Confirmed orders that have received an email that the order is ready for collection can be book either service through our Appointment page.
3. Purchases and Orders
General Delivery Information: We use a combination of FedEX, UPS, Canpar, Canada Post and/or freight depending on your order. All shipments are curbside unless otherwise stated. This means the items are either left at, or handed to you at the exterior doorway, not brought inside, based on item value. If you have any specific carrier for shipping or require a white glove (inside) delivery, please contact us immediately following purchase.
Order Pick-Ups: Once your order has been placed, you will receive an e-mail confirming your order. You will receive a separate email notifying you when your order is ready for collection. In-stock orders for pickup are typically ready within 3 business days. All orders are available for all in studio pick-up at either of our Toronto based studios and can be booked through our appointment page. As we do not keep all pieces on site in our studio, pick-up availability is based on both our current stock and our team's availability.
Order Delivery (Toronto, Local Only): Once your order has been placed, you will receive an e-mail confirming your order and pre-selected delivery date, if delivery is selected at check-out. Should there be any issue with delivery on the selected date due to in stock availability, you will be contacted by our team regarding alternate delivery times and/or dates. You may be redirected to set up a new delivery window, which can be booked through our appointment page.
Please note that shipping costs outside of Southern Ontario for our larger furniture items, vintage pieces and objects is not calculated automatically, and is done on a per item or per customer basis. Should you need a quote for an order shipped to your location, please contact us before ordering. Should you place an order before obtaining a shipping quote, and find that the invoice is higher than anticipated to ship the order to your location and thus request a return, the order will be considered to follow our standard order cancellation policy.
In-Stock Orders: Once your order has been shipped, you will receive an e-mail with your shipment’s tracking information, allowing you to keep track on the progress of your delivery. In-stock orders of smaller items typically ship within 3 days and up to 1 additional day for tracking information to become available. Larger items can take up to 2 weeks to pack, arrange a carrier and ship. We do our best to maintain contact and update all customers in this phase.
Special Orders: Once your order has been placed, you will receive an e-mail confirming your order. Once the order has been placed it will be put into production and is non-refundable. If part of your order is in stock and part is a special order, the in-stock item(s) will be held until the entire order is ready to ship.
