WHAT SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT JAMES+JAMES BEFORE ORDERING?
James+James is a garage-started, locally owned furniture company. James+James-built-furniture is hand-crafted by a small team of local craftsmen at our shop in Arkansas. We also offer a collection of furniture that we source globally and hand-finish onsite. Additionally, we offer a curated selection of decor items, lighting, furniture, and rugs from around the world.
OUR COSMETIC STANDARD
At James+James, we take great pride in each and every unique piece of furniture of solid hardwood furniture that we sell. The furniture that is handcrafted and brush-finished by our team is built using solid hardwood that is distressed and has a reclaimed look. Given the handmade and hand-finished nature of the products we craft, variations and imperfections in the wood should be expected and celebrated! Just as every tree is unique, so too is every piece of furniture that is handcrafted and hand-finished just for you. Every piece of furniture will have a unique grain pattern and slight color variation as a result of the grain pattern.
Other characteristics of handcrafted, solid wood furniture include open knots, (knots on top surfaces are filled by our craftsmen), visible brush strokes, micro-imperfections, and textural variations in the durable, hand-brushed finishes, unique distress marks, exposed screws, wood filler marks, rustic welds, joint lines, and distinctive nicks, splits, cracks, and other imperfections. We allow up to approx. 1" of variation across all measurements due to the custom nature of the handcrafted furniture we build. Those who do not appreciate variations and imperfections should not purchase handcrafted furniture.
Solid wood may expand and contract due to changes in temperature and humidity. This natural movement enhances the one-of-a-kind beauty of solid hardwood and handcrafted furniture. It does not affect the structural integrity and is not considered defective. We do not offer machine-manufactured perfection - no two pieces are exactly alike since James+James furniture is crafted to your order specifications. We celebrate the true uniqueness of every piece of solid wood furniture that is built and finished by hand in our woodshop.
CAN I CHANGE MY ORDER?
Our design consultants work hard to help you confirm every detail of your order before hitting the buy button, but if you need to make a change to your custom order, such as finish color, size, delivery method, etc, you'll have 24 hrs from when your order is submitted to make that change.
After the 24 hr window, wheels have been set in motion toward making your custom furniture, and we're not able to make any additional adjustments, or cancel your order.
