CUSTOMIZATIONS, MATERIALS, & LEAD TIMES
WHERE ARE YOUR GOODS MADE?
Most of our goods are made in Pennsylvania. All our lighting is made in house at our Philadelphia workshop. We work with select workshops on our furniture collection and some of our small production goods as well. Furniture is completed and finished on site in our workshop. A portion of our metal and wire frame goods are made in China.
IS THERE A LEAD TIME?
Items such as lighting, larger furniture, or customized pieces are made to order, and will have a lead time ranging between 2-14 weeks. All lead times are noted in the item description. Please feel free to inquire.
CAN I ORDER SAMPLES?
Yes. We offer wood, leather and finish samples for select products. Call us at 215-825-7270 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a specific request.
CAN I USE MY OWN FABRICS AND LEATHERS (COM/COL)?
We offer COL (your own leather) options for our upholstered designs. Please contact us at email@example.com for support and advice.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOMIZATIONS OR CUSTOM PIECES?
At this time Lostine is not accepting any customization requests. Completely custom design projects in quantities of 20 or more will be considered on a case by case basis.
Our harness leather is a classic leather that will age beautifully over time. We celebrate the living finish of our leather and its inherent imperfections. Each piece of leather has a history, scratches, dents, folds, and marks that are naturally in the leather, is something that we embrace and repurpose. We do not view these marks as defects. Since each side of leather is different, the shade and texture of the leather will vary with each item. The patina created by daily wear-and-tear is meant to change and evolve over time.
Please care for your leather products with a soft cloth and a leather cleaner. Please be advised that exposure to sunlight will darken the leather, and spillages should be wiped quickly in order to avoid any staining.
Our leather lighting fixtures are to be used with LED bulbs only. LED bulbs not only use less energy but also give off less heat. Leather will dry out when exposed to excessive heat. We suggest using an A19, 600 lumen (40 watt equivalent) LED bulb with each light. Light bulb not included with our fixtures.
Our wooden tables and furniture are made of solid oak and finished with a matte clear finish.
Do not place hot items directly on table. Use coasters, trivets, and placemats as needed. For best results, clean with a soft cloth and natural furniture cleaner.
Our wooden table lamps, floor lamps, and pendant lights are turned and finished by hand. Some variants in wood grain and color are to be expected. No two lamps will look completely identical.
Hand wash and dry only. Do not soak in water, not dish washer safe. Oil often with mineral oil.

WHEN DO I PAY FOR MY ORDER?
All purchases must be paid in full at the time of ordering.
WHAT IS A LEAD TIME?
Our lead time is the amount of time it takes us to produce a made-to-order item and prepare it for shipment.
WHAT DOES MADE-TO-ORDER MEAN?
Made-to-order means that once we receive your order, it gets included in a production run of that item and when it is completed, it ships to you directly. This reduces waste (we don’t overproduce inventory or cut into materials that aren’t needed), and keeps our small, hardworking team organized. We have a limited number of people on our team and a made-to-order workflow, so we are only able to produce a certain number of items each week in order to maintain our lead times.
CAN YOU RUSH MY ORDER?
We are unable to rush any made-to-order items, due to the fact that there are no items to rush. Each item is made-to-order only after its been purchased.
