If you would like custom color, please add the "custom color" product to your cart and "note" your Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams color code in the notes section upon checkout ($150 upcharge).

Turnaround time for all custom work is an estimate. We suspect lacquering will take about 12 weeks and shipping can take up to 2-3 additional weeks. Paint times can be impacted by the volume of orders received at a given time. All timeframes are estimates and subject to change due to the finicky nature of lacquer and working with vintage pieces, some pieces need additional time to cure.
Your shipping quote includes ONE small business private shipper hired on your behalf to safely hand- deliver your piece to the GROUND FLOOR/ FOYER of your home. Shipping rates include ground floor/ foyer delivery. We partner with some amazing, independently contracted shippers, and that being said most of them travel alone. They are unable to carry pieces up stairs to your foyer if there is not someone there to assist them. If you desire to have your piece placed in a specific room on the ground floor it is beneficial to have an additional pair of hands available to help AND tip the shipper.
Once your piece is picked up and securely blanket wrapped, you will hear from our Hibiscus House team but the shipper will be your main point of contact for receiving. We ask that our shippers remain in close contact with our clients, but sometimes routes change for a variety of reasons causing delays or different arrival dates. These shippers are on tight timelines and can usually NOT reschedule. (We suggest having a neighbor or family member, a garage code, etc. as a backup plan if you're unable to meet the driver.) We continue to work to get your piece(s) to you as quickly as we can. Once your new piece has left our shop, if there is a delay in getting it to you, the shipper will reach out to you directly. We have little control over the piece once it has been turned over to the shipper.
Yes, we ship anywhere in the continental U.S. (excluding Hawaii and Alaska.) If you experience shipping rate issues upon checking out, please e-mail or direct message us and we will try to work with our shippers and accommodate!
