Asian Primitive Bench
Small to Medium Orders and items: We fulfill these orders from our Mpls shop within just a few days (often same day!) + shipping time. These items ship USPS or UPS, which usually have a delivery time of 1-5 days. Upon fulfillment you'll get an email with a tracking code so you'll know exactly when you'll receive your order.
Large Items + Most Furniture: Please allow 3-5 weeks for fulfillment & delivery (unless specified on the product page that it will take longer) for in-stock and non-custom items that ship freight. We will communicate with you each step of the way. If anything deviates from the above timing we'll be sure to reach out to you. Here's a bit about how freight shipping works:
- Tracking Codes: Once the order is picked up from us, we'll send you an email with a tracking code. This usually takes 1-2 weeks from the day you placed your order.
- Delivery Appointment: Within usually 3-10 days of getting the tracking code email, the freight company will call you to schedule delivery so be sure and answer any unknown numbers. The final delivery date/time is up to you to schedule with them. Please note this timeframe can vary quite a bit as it depends largely on the freight company and your location.
- Most furniture delivery includes going into the first covered area (meaning garage, porch, etc) and is then unpacked by you. If you want white glove or rush delivery, please reach out (see below) and we can easily add that to your order and determine the exact charges at that time.
Custom Pieces: Custom pieces will have timing displayed on their product page. Most custom furniture takes about 10-14 weeks to be delivered.
Pre-Order Items: These items will display a back-in-stock date on the product page. Once the item is back-in-stock, the 3-5 week fulfillment & delivery time begins.
As always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out. You can use the website chat feature, or message us on Instagram & Facebook or use our contact form on the contact us page. We're in the shop 9-4 CST Monday-Friday and Saturdays & Sundays from 11-4 CST.

All orders are processed within 3-5 business days unless longer lead times are specified in a product's description or there's a unique situation, in which we will communicate with you directly. Processing times are in place regardless of how many shipping days are specified at the time of order. If the item you order has an unexpected delay, we will contact you directly. We ship small and medium items via UPS, which usually delivers in 2-3 days. Large items go freight, which takes 1-3 weeks and we will communicate with you multiple times during processing and delivery to let you know where things are at. If you need a quicker freight delivery time, please contact us before placing your order. We can often accommodate this for an extra charge.
If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, usually during holidays or sales, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery. If there will be a significant delay in shipment of your order, we will contact you directly. Delivery delays can occasionally occur based on weather/holidays etc.

A shop with purpose
“When something happens to the magnitude of what happened to me, it changes you forever and makes you appreciate life,” Years after her traumatic experience, Kassina was experiencing sensory issues that she would later find out were physical manifestations of her trauma.
“Through research and therapy, I've learned that the way I was approaching design regulated the nervous system. Every human experiences the world through their nervous system, which then tells the brain how to respond. For trauma survivors and those with chronic stress, those signals get garbled and you can experience sensory overload. For years I was applying all these design principles that I didn’t have a name for, but they were ways to design spaces that I could comfortably exist in.”
All of her signature principles — specific light placement and dimming, acoustics, soft-edged furnishings, organic and monochromatic colors, shapes and textural layers — bring a sense of comfort and safety, as much as aesthetic, to regulate the nervous system. She launched her shop on a mission to bring her nervous-system-regulating principles to everyone. Even if someone hasn't experienced trauma they can bring a sense of calm to their home through her design principles and the goods she sells.
Go check her space out...you'll fall in love with everything!
