THE COMMISSION PROCESS

Commissioning a Piece

You may commission any of the artist's works in the original dimensions by submitting your order via phone with an advance payment of 50% of the price either by personal check or direct deposit. The artist will not change the original dimensions because each framework is perfectly balanced after years of testing.

Construction

Your advance payment will trigger the construction process, beginning with the purchase of your selected hardwood. Construction will be completed within four to six months from the date of your advance payment.

Packaging and Installation

Smaller pieces like the Phelps Writing Table will be packaged in a Collector’s Case constructed with the same hardwood, fit and finish as the work itself. After inspection, the encased piece will be shipped in a plywood box. The artist will then contact you to schedule a date for installation.

Larger pieces like the Cordell Sofa and Blue Island Bar will be shipped fully or partially constructed. The artist will contact you to schedule a date to complete the installation of these larger works.

Delivery

Your piece(s) will be sent pre-paid by UPS ground or DHL air internationally.

Signing a Piece

Each work is signed, dated and numbered in the wood with a hammer and steel stamps. One might wonder how a piece is signed in a space of only 1 3/8". It's easy with the help of a 4.0x Power Magnifying Loupe and a lot of experience.

Lifetime Warranty

If any solid wood part of the framework of a piece in The SOHO Collection fails due to a flaw in construction during the lifetime of the buyer it will be replaced without charge.
