How much are the shipping costs in Italy?

Standard street level delivery is free in Italy, excluding islands.

These costs are not up to us and we are unable to calculate them. They vary from country to country and we recommend that you inquire at the customs office in your country.


Are the products shown on the site ready for delivery?

No, the products on our site must be ordered, therefore it will be necessary to wait for production times. The only products ready for delivery are those present in the “In Stock/Outlet” section.

How long are production times?

Production times vary from company to company. Generally they vary from a minimum of 4 weeks to a maximum of 8. The production time is indicated in the description of each product: it is a particularly accurate estimate, but not binding because it depends on the manufacturer.


What is standard street level delivery?

Standard delivery involves unloading the goods at the street level. It does not include transport into your home, assembly and removal of packaging.

Can I request home delivery and assembly service?

Yes, you can request this service. You will need to provide us with your address, the floor number on which your apartment is located and specify any problems related to your address: restricted traffic area, particularly narrow street, narrow stairs, low ceilings, no lift or any other problem that prevent delivery.

Who makes the deliveries?

For deliveries we rely on a company specializing in the transport of furniture, in order to guarantee quality service and product integrity. We do not use express couriers: they are not considered suitable for the transport of delicate products.

What are the shipping times?

Shipping times vary based on the shipping address. Shipments within Europe generally take 6/10 days from when the products arrive at the warehouse of the transport company. Outside of Europe, shipping times will be indicated on a case-by-case basis. Shipping times are accurate estimates, but not binding because they depend solely on the transport company.

Will I be contacted before delivery?

Before delivery you will be contacted by telephone by the transport company to agree on the date and time of delivery.

Are there any periods of the year during which you don't deliver?

Deliveries during the Christmas period may slow down and be rescheduled in January. Due to the summer holidays of European hauliers, no deliveries are made during the month of August.

I ordered multiple products: will they be delivered together or separately?

Generally the products are shipped all together because it is cheaper. If you have ordered products with different production times, they will be shipped to you when the last product is ready. If you want separate shipments we can organize them: keep in mind that the shipping costs will be higher.

To save money, can I choose to receive the goods by express courier?

Yes, if you wish we can entrust the products to an express courier. In this case, the responsibility for non-compliant transport and any damage will be at your expense.

Yes, if you wish, you can independently collect the products from our warehouse.

Once you place the order, we immediately send it to the manufacturer. You have 48 hours to inform us that you intend to cancel the order. After this time frame, the order can no longer be canceled.

Can I return an item?

You have 14 days to exercise the right of return from when you or a person designated by you has received the goods. After 14 days it will no longer be possible to return. The costs for the return will be at your expense. All products that have been made according to your preferences are excluded from the right of return.
