Shipping and Returns

Our SOBU collection of in-stock designs ship within 1-2 weeks of your order (designs marked DESIGN BY SOBU). You will be notified via email with tracking information once your shipment is on its way. 

Items on our site supplied by our partner vendors (companies we love) vary in transit time. We try and give a rough estimate on each product page. Please contact us if you would like to know current lead time on a specific item.


For orders which require assembly and/or are very heavy (most dining tables for example), we automatically upgrade you to White Glove Delivery at no extra charge when available (our white glove delivery company does not service all zip codes unfortunately). Please contact us if you would like to know if your zip code is serviced by our white glove delivery company.

When white glove delivery is not offered, deliveries outside of the Bay Area are curbside only. Curbside delivery service provides delivery of your item(s) to the curb at the end of your driveway. This service does not include set up or assembly of items or removal of packaging materials. Please plan accordingly and have help on hand to bring heavier items inside.

For both White Glove and Curbside Deliveries, the delivery company will be calling you ahead of time to schedule a Monday through Friday delivery appointment that is convenient for you. All shipments are insured and transit times depend on your shipping location and specific carrier.  

Upon delivery please inspect your item(s). You will be required to sign a Proof of Delivery receipt. Please note any damage to the item or packaging on the delivery receipt or, if refusing delivery due to damage please note refused due to damage on this receipt. You are not responsible for shipping charges for the return of damaged items or replacements sent.

For delivery quotes, please use the shipping calculator window which pops up when you add items to the cart. Enter your shipping state and zip code for shipping rates.


We offer Standard and White Glove Delivery to all local customers. For larger items which are heavy and/or require assembly, we may recommend and sometimes require White Glove Delivery. Our crew will deliver, unpack, assemble items and remove all packaging and cartons for you.
