Like most people, I am the type of person who wants immediate gratification. When I buy it, I want to enjoy it right away. A new dress? Wear it. Great food? Take a picture. Post it.
However, in Hawaii, that isn’t always possible especially when it comes to furniture. Sometimes we have to wait for a container to be filled before items can be shipped.
Knowing that your furniture might take awhile to get delivered, here are some things to consider: Does your flooring need changing? Could you spruce your walls with fresh new colors? Do your curtains need updating? These are things you could be doing as your new furniture is crossing the Pacific.
Another option to consider is to special order your furnishings. Many of our quality manufacturers offer a large selection of styles, fabrics, and colors to choose from. You get exactly what you want which makes the wait even more gratifying.
Innovative Jonathan Louis makes custom ordering simple in its 3-step “Choices” program.
1) Choose an arm style: rolled arm, a dome arm, a flair arm, or a contemporary track arm. 2) Choose a seat cushion: boxed or a t-cushion. You can also specify foam core or down blend.
3) Choose a base: upholstered base, a wood base, or a skirted base for a traditional look.
There are also more than 300 quality fabrics to choose from to get the exact look you want.
