MADELINE STUART COLLECTION

LOS ANGELES, CA 90069
All shipments need to be sidemarked with the following information:
Designer Name / Client Name / Item description and Number / Order Number
Standard lead time is 12-14 weeks for all items. The lead time is calculated starting upon the date that all of the following are received:
• Deposit check for 50% of total order
• Receipt of any COM/COL including completed COM form
• Approved finish sample(s), if applicable
• Approved shop drawing(s), if applicable
Lead times are estimates only due to the hand crafted nature of our product. Please inquire about any special projects or orders that request a different lead time. Lead times may also be extended if there are delays in approval of any order details.
As all items are hand crafted, dimensions may vary slightly from those indicated. Please be advised that measurements are calculated to the nearest 1”. If there are exact conditions requiring precise dimensions, please indicate that requirement on the purchase order.
MATERIALS & FINISHES
Although we strive to consistently match our finish samples to the final product, the color, tone, texture and graining of the materials used in our furniture will vary slightly, including wood, stone, and metals. No guarantee can be made of an exact match. These variations should not be considered a defect and are the result of using natural materials. Our samples are provided as a reference and the finished product may reflect some variations. Custom finish samples may be requested and are subject to a custom sample charge of $250.00 for stain or $300.00 for lacquer.
Brass is considered a “living” material and may tarnish overtime with use and exposure to the elements, including air. Many of our pieces feature unlacquered brass in order to celebrate this natural property, as such, the resulting tones may be subject to change over time. Clear lacquer is available as an upcharge over the brass for many of our pieces. If unlacquered or lacquered brass is mandated, this should be specified on the purchase order.
Crackled linen lacquer is a finish process in which a linen cloth is gessoed, rolled, stained and glazed- resulting in contrasting fissures. Due to this process, each piece is entirely unique and fissure placement and intensity will vary.
Stone is a product of nature and no two pieces of stone are exactly alike. Every piece of stone has unique natural variations, markings, shadings, and inclusions, which can include fissures, pits, open or dry seams, fossils or glass veins, and differ in regard to moisture absorption, surface finish, texture and coefficient of friction.
CUSTOM ORDERS & DRAWINGS
Changes to the standard dimensions or alterations to the inherent design of a piece will be quoted on an individual basis and fabrication drawings may be provided upon request. Fabrication drawings are billed at a cost of $150 for the initial submission + one revision. Any further revisions will be billed at an additional $75 per iteration. Please be advised that any design changes may result in altering the look and feel of a piece and client shall take full responsibility for the outcome of any such request.
SHIPPING & STORAGE
Shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser unless otherwise arranged with MSC. Shipping instructions must be noted on each order. All pickups for will call should be notified to MSC at least 24 hours in advance and are subject to a $50 (non-commissionable) warehouse release fee. Merchandise may be shipped blanket-wrapped or crated depending on circumstances unless a particular method is specifically requested. All pieces ship from Los Angeles, California.
Delivery of goods to carrier shall be deemed to Buyer, even in the event where MSC makes a freight quote or recommendation, and thereupon title to such goods, and risk of loss or damage shall be Buyer’s. Please inspect merchandise carefully and immediately upon delivery. Do not accept a shipment which evidences damage or shortage until the driver endorses a statement of the irregularity on the face of the transportation receipt. Any claim by Buyer against MSC or carrier for shortage or damage occurring prior to such delivery must be made in writing within seventy-two (72) hours after receipt of shipment and accompanied by original transportation bill signed by the carrier noting that the carrier received the goods from Manufacturer in the conditions claimed. Packing materials should be retained for inspection purposes. No returns to MSC will be accepted without prior authorization.
The shipping date as indicated on your confirmation is approximate and contingent upon approval of finishes and receipt of fabrics. All orders will be shipped as close as possible to the date given, however, MSC cannot be held liable for any delay in shipment or delivery or for damages claimed from such delay. Please be aware that delays do and may occur due to the handmade nature of our manufacturing process. The estimated completion and delivery date should not be considered a condition of sale.
Because warehousing facilities are limited, 60 days after completion, MSC will charge storage fees at 1.5% of total invoice per month.
