  • Many of our credenzas feature beautiful inset doors, giving the piece a high-end sleek design. Please note, varying levels of humidity can cause the wood to expand and contract depending on your home, the season, etc. which means the doors can fluctuate within the piece. Additionally, if your home happens to have uneven floors, this can impact how the cabinet doors will sit and settle. If your home has uneven floors, shims can be a great solution to even out the base.

Outdoor Furniture
  • Refer to the individual product page to determine if your piece is suitable for outdoor use or covered-patio only. Currently our Claremont collection features our only styles approved for outdoor use.
  • Our all-weather wicker designed in house is specifically crafted for outdoor use and is UV resistant and anti-mildew.
  • If you’ve selected an outdoor approved fabric - Performance Natural Linen, Performance Willow Green Linen, Performance Blush Linen, Performance Cloud Linen, or Performance Denim Linen: The Claremont Lounge cushions are suitable for indoor and outdoor use as water passes through the fiber and fabrics allowing for fast drying. If your cushions do get wet, the best method is to unzip the cover and set them upside down to allow water to drain out. As long as they dry in-between wettings, mold should not develop. It's when they do not get to thoroughly dry out that mold may develop. To extend the life of your cushions season after season, store them indoors when not in use.
  • If you’ve not selected an outdoor approved fabric: Bring cushions indoors or utilize furniture covers when not in use. Avoid long-term direct sunlight exposure and weather exposure.
Rugs
