We use FedEx for small purchases and "store pick-up" is available in most cases.  For large furniture items, we use freight or "White Glove" services.  Please see shipping information here.

What is COM?

COM is an industry term that stands for Customer's Own Material and generally refers to upholstered goods.  It indicates we can accommodate almost any fabric choice on your piece of furniture (with approval).  The term is a way to reflect the cost of an item without including the cost of the materials; generally fabric or leather.
