The Process

We can work with you via phone, email, and of course, in person. For in-person visits to the showroom, kindly email (info@michelangelodesigns.com) or call (973-779-3200) to make an appointment. Please bring any floor plans/dimensions with you, as we will help with the furniture selecting process according to the style and dimensions specified. We also encourage a budget, as this allows us to help narrow your options as we offer many different brands that range in price and style. Lastly, many of our products are in stock, but given the nature of our business and everyone’s individual preference, most of our items are made to order so we encourage buyers to plan in advance of when they will need the items. We strive for quality and timely delivery, our average lead time is generally just 10-14 weeks. But always check when ordering what the expected delivery time will be, as this can vary on individual orders. If merchandise is not needed until later than the ETA date, just let us know at the time of the order and we will plan accordingly (i.e. Ordering in January while wanting delivery in September. we will plan accordingly.)


Why Italian Furniture and Why Michelangelo Designs

We have focused on Italian Furniture that is not only Italian in design and name, but most importantly that is made in Italy to the rigorous standards of quality craftsmanship that has made Italian furniture world famous. Italian furniture goes beyond just the aesthetics and haute-couture designs, it is furniture that is made for life. In a world of consumerism filled with merchandise that is temporary, our products are made to last and to be handed down to future generations. With old-school Italian craftsmanship, our items are timeless designs and generational quality that will remain looking brand new for years and decades after you receive them. Our business model is not based on selling you replacements, but rather to grow with you as your projects grow and earn your trust which in turn hopefully leads to new client referrals as well.


The Policy

As most of our items are made to order, there is a required deposit to confirm an order. We want you to feel comfortable in your purchases, and as such there is a 3 business day grace period from the date of the deposit where by you can modify your order, or cancel and receive a full refund or credit. After the 3 day period, given that these pieces are made to order, they can no longer be modified or cancelled. Any stock items that are cancelled or changed are subject to a restocking fee.

Once items are ready for delivery, we will call and email you to schedule a delivery/pickup and to finalize any remaining balance on the order. As a courtesy to our clients, (we understand that projects may be delayed) we can hold and warehouse your merchandise for up to 30 days from the day the merchandise is ready at no charge. Balances on orders will be due on whichever of these 2 items occurs first: prior to the release of the merchandise or within 30 days of the merchandise being ready. If you need merchandise to be held longer, we can store items that are paid in full for a warehousing fee. Balances not paid within 30 days will incur interest and warehousing fees.

When you receive a delivery or come for a pickup, you will have the opportunity to inspect all merchandise to ensure that you are receiving the correct items, in the correct finishes, and that all merchandise is in good condition. We inspect items before shipping, but on the off-chance that an item is damaged or incorrect, you will have an opportunity to notate that on your Bill of Lading, and we ask that you call and speak with us while the delivery team is at your location. We will either fix or replace the item based on the issue and to ensure your satisfaction. We always aim for the utmost happiness in receiving your/your client’s furniture and continue to strive, as we have for over 3 decades, for above and beyond satisfaction.
