Vintage & Antique Furniture
City Girl Arts endeavors to bring new life to vintage and antique furniture. Even though we repair and improve it to the best of our knowledge at time of work, the piece is still old and is still subject to the consequences of its age and original construction. The piece may have vintage wear under new paint, for example, because we don’t and can’t obliterate all evidence of previous life. Anything that doesn’t need repair at time of work may need repair in the future. City Girl Arts does not make any guarantees about the life of the piece of furniture.
City Girl Arts cannot be responsible for how a piece is used once it leaves our shop, particularly by pets or children. Fabrics can fade, buttons can pop, and the customer must have reasonable expectations regarding these issues. City Girl Arts will do our best to address any repair issues should fault be from something in our control. We are not responsible for any issue arising from a matter beyond our control, and is at our sole discretion.
Customer must understand that upholstery is a skilled craft performed by hand. Thus, minor imperfections related to performing a new upholstery service on an old piece may exist.
In order to purchase a custom upholstered piece, a retainer of 50% reserves your project and begins a collaboration between us that will result in a chair that is designed and made just for you. Once we have selected your fabrics, the fabric cost is due before ordering. Once work is ready to commence, the balance of the project is due and the piece comes into the studio. The entire process can take months, because timing is dependent on all the details that go into your custom project, including frame finish and fabric availability, and reconstruction decisions made after teardown. Because of the personal nature of the piece we have designed together, all sales are final.
Transformed & As Found Pieces
There will be no refunds or exchanges on any purchases. All sales are final.
Yes, we ship! We charge a flat fee of $350 to ship a chair anywhere in the continental U.S. that our carriers go. A smaller piece, such as an ottoman, carries a flat fee of $150 to ship via ground service. Please contact us to clarify any shipping fee before purchase.
Florida sales tax of 7% is charged on your purchase. Sales tax is waived if the piece is purchased by an out of state buyer and shipped out of state.
