How long do claims typically take to resolve?

We are dedicated to making any claims processes as quick and painless as possible! It is very important that once your items are received that they are thoroughly inspected prior to signing off on the paperwork- please make sure any damages are noted on the paperwork. Doing this ensures that you are covered for any damages and helps move along the claims process. Claims can take anywhere between 2-4 weeks. If your pieces are repairable and have been accepted by you, the shippers can either organize the repair, or you are free to have your repair quoted for approval by a repairman of your choice. Once the repair estimate has been submitted to us, it takes about 1-2 weeks for approval from the shipping company to move forward with the repair.

If your pieces are not repairable or have been refused, replacements can take anywhere from a couple of weeks, up to 6 months. As we are a boutique manufacturer and all items are fully crafted by hand, this makes quick replacements nearly impossible. We understand what an inconvenience this can be and we are happy to offer a full refund for the goods until your replacements arrive.

What If I need to reschedule my delivery date and time?

If you need to reschedule your delivery date and time after it has been confirmed between you and the shipper, please contact the appointed shipper immediately to notify of the change. Please note, re-scheduling or re-delivery fee’s will be charged by the shipper and will be billed to you directly. Our free shipping only includes the first delivery scheduled/ attempted; you will be responsible for any fees incurred for second and subsequent delivery attempts.

What if I miss my scheduled delivery time?

If you miss your scheduled delivery time, you will incur a fee for any deliveries attempted during your delivery window, should you not be available to receive your items. The shipper will bill you directly for the missed delivery, as well as a re-delivery fee. Please note, shippers are only in areas for short amounts of time. If you miss your first scheduled delivery time, it can take up to 6 weeks for the shippers to return to your area to reschedule the items.

At Eloquence®, we pride ourselves on our dedication to creating quality re-editions. All of our items are handcrafted by incredibly talented artisans. Our finishes are applied through a multi-layering technique including hand painting, glazing, and distressing. Due to this attention to detail, our craft times can anywhere from 2 weeks, and up to 6 months. Good things take time and our pieces are meant to last for generations to come!

Can I place a special or custom order?

Unfortunately, we are unable to fulfill special or custom orders at this time. As our items are all boutique manufactured, we are unable to accommodate any special request with finishes, fabrics, sizing or materials as this greatly delays our production times.

Do you offer a FOB program?

Eloquence® is currently at capacity with our FOB program. Please contact our office at info@eloquence.com or by telephone at (310) 876-0661, Monday-Friday, 8AM-5PM, PST for any FOB opportunities, as we may be able to place you on a waitlist.

If you are experiencing any issues with mechanism failure, cracking, warping, discoloration, etc. Eloquence® will repair or replace your item(s), as long as the items have not been damaged due to negligence/ improper use, or are what we consider to be signs of normal wear. Please contact our Customer Service team at info@eloquence.com or by telephone at (310) 876-0661.

Do you offer finish samples?

Finish Samples are available for purchase for most Eloquence® Collection pieces. We work very hard to assure consistency on our finishes, however, Eloquence® items are hand finished and will vary from batch to batch. Finish Samples are meant to act as a guide, but may not be an exact representation of the finish you will receive on your Eloquence® piece. Finish samples are offered at $25.00 each. Please note, the $25.00 fee will be refunded to you if the finish samples are returned to us in good condition.

Do you offer fabric swatches?

Fabric Samples are available for purchase for most Eloquence® Collection pieces. We work very hard to assure consistency on our fabrics, however, due to dye lots, fabrics can vary slightly.

Antique & Vintage Pieces

The Antique/ Vintage piece I love has been sold, how do I find another one?

We understand the frustration when losing out on an Antique you love. While no two Antiques are the same, we have an ever changing inventory of Antique & Vintage items updated to our site almost monthly. If there is a special piece you absolutely love and is no longer available, please let us know and we are happy to pass this along to our buyers for consideration.

What is the difference between Antique and Vintage?

Great question! Antiques are characterized as being 100 years and over, while Vintage items are characterized as 50-100 years old.

Where do you source your items?

Eloquence® Antique and Vintage items are sourced all throughout Europe! Our favorite countries for sourcing include but are not limited to: France, Belgium, Sweden and Italy!

Why chose Antique or Vintage pieces?

Antiques have the ability to transcend your home to another time and another place. Our Antiques come from a time when things were artfully crafted with integrity, and meant to be enjoyed for many years to come. By adopting these one-of-a-kind pieces into your home, you are writing the next chapter in their story.

There is an Antique/ Vintage pair that I love, but am only needing one. Are you able to split apart your pairs or sets?

Unfortunately, we are unable to split up any Antique/ Vintage pairs or sets. However, we do occasionally offer single chairs on our site.

Do you offer Certificates of Authenticity for your Antique or Vintage items?

When purchasing our Antique or Vintage items, we purchase from reputable antique resellers and select items that speak to us. Things such as chippy wood, beautiful carvings, original mirror glass, and painterly patinas are all things that stand out as an exceptional piece and are added to our curated collection of one-of-a-kinds. From time to time, we may choose a piece which holds original signatures or carvings from the original maker. If we do come across these markings, we will photograph them on our website and note them in the description. However, most Eloquence® Antique or Vintage pieces are restored one-of-kinds and do not carry Certificates of Authenticity or Markings. While things such as Provenance are important for many Antique Dealers or Collectors, Antique lovers and aficionados like us purchase for the love of design.

Can I order a Finish Sample for an Antique or Vintage item?

As the Antique or Vintage items are one-of-a-kind, we are unable to offer any finish samples. We understand how difficult it is to make buying decisions without seeing the actual piece, which is why the Eloquence® Team photographs all of our items in natural lighting. If you have any specific questions about the finish on an item or would like additional photos, please contact our Customer Service team directly at info@eloquence.com or by telephone at (310) 876-0661.

Doing this ensures that you are covered for any damages and helps move along the claims process. Claims can take anywhere between 2-4 weeks. If your pieces are repairable and have been accepted by you, the shippers can either organize the repair, or you are free to have your repair quoted for approval by a repairman of your choice. Once the repair estimate has been submitted to us, it takes about 1-2 weeks for approval from the shipping company to move forward with the repair.

If your pieces are not repairable or have been refused, replacements can take anywhere from a couple of weeks, up to 6 months. As we are a boutique manufacturer and all items are fully crafted by hand, this makes quick replacements nearly impossible. We understand what an inconvenience this can be and we are happy to offer a full refund for the goods until your replacements arrive.

Eloquence® Collection

How long does it take to craft an Eloquence® re-edition?

At Eloquence®, we pride ourselves on our dedication to creating quality re-editions. All of our items are handcrafted by incredibly talented artisans. Our finishes are applied through a multi-layering technique including hand painting, glazing, and distressing. Due to this attention to detail, our craft times can anywhere from 2 weeks, and up to 6 months. Good things take time and our pieces are meant to last for generations to come!

Can I place a special or custom order?

Unfortunately, we are unable to fulfill special or custom orders at this time. As our items are all boutique manufactured, we are unable to accommodate any special request with finishes, fabrics, sizing or materials as this greatly delays our production times.

Do you offer an FOB program?

Eloquence® is currently at capacity with our FOB program. Please contact our office at wholesale@eloquence.com or by telephone at (310) 876-0661, Monday-Friday, 8AM-5PM, PST for any FOB opportunities, as we may be able to place you on a waitlist.

While we may not have a traditional warranty on our items, we stand by the quality of our pieces and will assist in any claims. If you are experiencing any issues with mechanism failure, cracking, warping, discoloration, etc. Eloquence® will repair or replace your item(s), as long as the items have not been damaged due to negligence/ improper use, or are what we consider to be signs of normal wear. Please contact our Customer Service team at wholesale@eloquence.com or by telephone at (310) 876-0661.

Do you offer finish samples?

Finish Samples are available for purchase for most Eloquence® Collection pieces. We work very hard to assure consistency on our finishes, however, Eloquence® items are hand finished and will vary from batch to batch. Finish Samples are meant to act as a guide, but may not be an exact representation of the finish you will receive on your Eloquence® piece.

Do you offer fabric swatches?

Fabric Samples are available for purchase for most Eloquence® Collection pieces. We work very hard to assure consistency on our fabrics, however, due to dye lots, fabrics can vary slightly. Fabric Samples are meant to act as a guide, but may not be an exact representation of the fabric you will receive on your Eloquence® piece.

Antique & Vintage Pieces

The Antique/ Vintage piece I love has been sold, how do I find another one?

We understand the frustration when losing out on an Antique you love. While no two Antiques are the same, we have an ever changing inventory of Antique & Vintage items updated to our site almost monthly. If there is a special piece you absolutely love and is no longer available, please let us know and we are happy to pass this along to our buyers for consideration.

What is the difference between Antique and Vintage?

Great question! Antiques are characterized as being 100 years and over, while Vintage items are characterized as 50-100 years old.

Where do you source your items?

Eloquence® Antique and Vintage items are sourced all throughout Europe! Our favorite countries for sourcing include but are not limited to: France, Belgium, Sweden and Italy!

Why chose Antique or Vintage pieces?

Antiques have the ability to transcend your home to another time and another place. Our Antiques come from a time when things were artfully crafted with integrity, and meant to be enjoyed for many years to come. By adopting these one-of-a-kind pieces into your home, you are writing the next chapter in their story.

There is an Antique/ Vintage pair that I love, but am only needing one. Are you able to split apart your pairs or sets?

Unfortunately, we are unable to split up any Antique/ Vintage pairs or sets. However, we do occasionally offer single chairs on our site.

Do you offer Certificates of Authenticity for your Antique or Vintage items?

When purchasing our Antique or Vintage items, we purchase from reputable antique resellers and select items that speak to us. Things such as chippy wood, beautiful carvings, original mirror and glass, and painterly patinas are all things that stand out as an exceptional piece and are added to our curated collection of one-of-a-kinds. From time to time, we may choose a piece which holds original signatures or carvings from the original maker. If we do come across these markings, we will photograph them on our website and note them in the description. However, most Eloquence® Antique or Vintage pieces are restored one-of-kinds and do not carry Certificates of Authenticity or Markings. While things such as Provenance are important for many Antique Dealers or Collectors, Antique lovers and aficionados like us purchase for the love of design.

Can I order a Finish Sample for an Antique or Vintage item?

As the Antique or Vintage items are one-of-a-kind, we are unable to offer any finish samples. We understand how difficult it is to make buying decisions without seeing the actual piece, which is why the Eloquence® Team photographs all of our items in natural lighting. If you have any specific questions about the finish on an item or would like additional photos, please contact our Customer Service team directly at

wholesale@eloquence.com or by telephone at (310) 876-0661.
