Question:  Can I cancel the service at any time?  

Answer:  Once you have submitted your request for service and provided us with your requirements, we cannot refund any design services fees as we work hard to answer your questions promptly.

Answer: We are a Canadian company based in Toronto ON., we source our furniture from large Canadian retailers like West Elm, Restoration Hardware, Cb2, Structube, Style Garage, Article, Ikea, etc. However we do provide services to the US as there are comparable retailers we can source from as well. We do source some furniture from US suppliers and they will often charge a small shipping fee.
