Frequently Asked Questions
Is Post Design Collective a store?
We consider ourselves as a private dealer, young collectors and lovers of mid-century furniture and design. We decided to share the items we curate, creating Post Design Collective along the way.
You can learn more about us
here, and about our location
Can I come see your pieces in person?
Viewings at our studio are welcomed and can be booked through our Online Booking Tool. As we do not keep all pieces on site in our 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.
How can I keep track of your inventory and collection releases?
You can see all of our available pieces on our Collection page, and our day to day activity on our Instagram.
We also offer a mailing list for updates to our collection, 24 hour early access to our collection, and any other important information. You are able to sign up at the bottom of our homepage.
Is it possible to put a piece on hold?
Unfortunately pieces can not be put on hold. We recommend reviewing all measurements, description, details, photos and condition rating before checkout. Please note that setting up an appointment does not guarantee availability due to our online purchasing system.
Are your pieces new?
All our pieces are authentic, vintage and true to Mid-Century design and characteristics, with the large majority of pieces being produced between 1945-1980. We do not sell any replica pieces, new items, mass produced box store pieces or handmade items, unless otherwise noted. This also means that our pieces have been around for around 50 or more years, and are not always in “like new” condition.
Please be sure to view all photos for damages/imperfections and the listed
Class + Condition Rating for more information on a piece.
Do you provide delivery?
Yes, we offer both local Ontario Delivery and Canada Wide Shipping, with delivery starting at a nominal $50 and available free pick-up at our studio.
Please see our
Policies for more information on
Pick-Up, Delivery and Shipping, and our Delivery Cost Map.
Do you offer any refinishing or reupholstering services?
Unfortunately, we do not offer any of these services at this time.
How long can I store a purchase at your location for?
We're happy to hold on to the piece that you have decided to purchase for up to 2 weeks after purchase. If the item is to be delivered or shipped to you, we will work with you to arrange the earliest possible delivery time to get your piece to your home.
If you require longer term storage we ask an additional $50 per week to store.
What payment methods do you accept?
All pieces on our Collection page can be purchased through our website. We accept all major Credit / Debit cards and Paypal.
Where are you located?
We are located at 184 Munro Street, and are available by Appointment only.
Are your pieces refinished?
Class + Condition Rating serves as a benchmark in describing the condition of the pieces that we curate on our platform. Although many pieces are refinished or restored to an extent, some retain their original character and history.
As a rule of thumb, we will not host any pieces with structural damage, major visible damage, or items that we wouldn’t keep in our own home.
Do you buy furniture?
We are always open to purchasing interesting, vintage pieces or newer designer branded furniture. We are not interested in generic mass produced items, or in any piece with major damage.
If your piece fits our description and is in great condition,
send us an email with a short description of the piece, your location, your expected price, photos showing, labels, overall condition, and whether you would like us to pick-up, or have you drop the items off. All of these factors will go into assessing the value of the item for us. In certain cases, we may have to see the piece in person to give a proper quote.
I have a busy schedule, and likely will not be able to make an appointment to view. Can I purchase online?
All pieces on our
Collection page can be purchased through our website.
Do you accept returns / have a return policy?
As of right now, we do not offer any returns on our pieces without extenuating circumstances or due to an error on our behalf. We have many inquiries about all of our pieces thanks to their quality, our accurate representation, our prices and our location, and offer them as a first come, first served basis. We recommend reviewing all measurements, description, details, photos and condition rating before checkout.
Please see our
Policies for more information on Returns.
What is the Condition + Class Rating?
Condition + Class Rating serves as a benchmark in describing the condition of the pieces that we curate on our platform, rated on a scale of A++ to B+. Although many pieces are refinished or restored to an extent, some retain their original character and history.
How are you keeping safe during COVID-19?
Post Design understands the need for an alternative approach to the way that we handle appointments, purchases, deliveries, and pick-ups moving forward. Please see our
Policies regarding COVID-19 to see how we will be approaching the COVID-19 virus.
We will continuously monitor the situation at hand, and will update our policies as necessary.
How do your collection releases work?
We release a limited, curated selection of vintage pieces every 3-4 months, including, but not limited to, Chairs, Sideboards, Dressers, Dining Tables, Lighting, and more. Pieces are available for purchase as soon as the collection releases, with the majority of the items selling out in the first 72 hours.
We offer a mailing list for updates to our collection, 24 hour early access, and any other important information. You are able to sign up at the bottom of our
