Shipping & Delivery Information
What are your shipping rates?
Shipping rates vary by product. We offer free standard ground shipping (Continental US only) on many of our products. All other shipment costs are based on the total order amount and/or product weight. Exceptions may include expedited shipping option or shipping to Alaska and Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Visit our Shipping and Delivery page to learn more.
How will my order ship?
We ship exclusively using FedEx. Your order is traceable; simply enter your tracking code at FedEx tracking. You will find your tracking code on your shipping confirmation email.
What does a product labeled “Quick Ship” mean?
Quick Ship products are our most popular furniture configurations. These items are in-stock and will ship the same business day if ordered by 3pm CST. Non-stock or custom furniture is produced on demand and sometimes results in longer lead times.
How will I know when my order ships and when it will arrive?
The day after your order has shipped you will receive an email with your tracking numbers. If you created an account, you can login and see the status of your order.
Do you offer expedited shipping and/or in-home delivery and assembly?
Yes. Shipping options vary based on the items ordered. When you check out, your cart will reflect the shipping options available to you. View our Shipping and Delivery page to learn more.
Are there any other extra fees with delivery and/or assembly of my order?
Full-Assembly Fee: Some of our products (for example desk chairs like Aeron) may ship knocked down. This ensures safe travel and less likelihood of damage. This often means the chair’s back and some small components may need to be attached. In these instances, we do offer the ability to ship fully-assembled furniture for a small fee.
Do your products require assembly?
Some products require light assembly. To determine if the product you're interested in requires assembly, go to the Specifications or Dimensions Tab located on the product page. For more information on assembly, view our Shipping and Delivery page.

Yes, you can change your selected shipping service after your order has been placed as long as your order has not shipped.

While we cannot schedule a delivery time for you, FedEx does enable you to control when your package will be delivered. To learn more visit FedEx Delivery Manager.
Can you ship internationally?
We do not ship outside of the United States but we can ship to a freight forwarder (ex. MyUs.com). Please call Customer Care at 877.349.2424 for more information.
