Have a question?
Check the list below to see if we have your answer. If you don’t see your question, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get right back to you! More information about the dimensions, colors, materials and shipping information can be found on individual product pages.
Where are Floyd products manufactured?
Floyd products are designed in Michigan and manufactured with our partners across the US.
What are your products made from?
We select each of our materials thoughtfully as we develop our products. All of our products use cold-rolled steel that is finished in a protective powder coat. The Bed Frame and Headboard are available with either birch or walnut Panels and The Shelving System uses birch supports with ash faces. The Birch Sofa features birch Panels while the Upholstered Sofa uses radiata pine (just as strong, but allows us to offer The Upholstered Sofa at a lower price point!). The linoleum Tables feature all-natural linoleum sourced from the Netherlands while our Birch Tables are made from, you guessed it, birch!
Where does the name Floyd come from?
The name Floyd harkens back to co-founder Kyle Hoff's family name — Kyle’s great-grandfather, grandfather, and father all share the first name Floyd and were all once steelworkers in Youngstown, Ohio.
Once I place an order, can I cancel or change any details?
Once an order is placed, it is generally not possible to cancel or change it in any way. If your order was placed in the last 12 hours, please e-mail email@example.com immediately and we will do our best to accommodate your request if your order has not yet processed for shipment.
Can you do custom orders?
Sorry, we do not accept any custom order requests at this time. This includes any custom colors or custom dimensions for our products.
Do you have any discount codes?
We occasionally offer discount codes — the best way to stay up to date is to sign up for our email newsletter.
If you’re looking for something a bit more immediate and have friends who also love Floyd, you can always utilize our friend referral program.

Where can I see Floyd in person?
Do you offer pickups at The Floyd Shop?
Unfortunately, we do not offer pickups from The Floyd Shop in our Detroit HQ as we do not hold any inventory there. If you’d like to stop by to view the product and ensure Floyd is the perfect fit for you though, we’d love to see you and help with any questions!
Can I use Floyd products outdoors?
We do not recommend leaving your Floyd products outside because prolonged exposure to the elements can cause corrosion and some cosmetic wear and tear on Floyd products. Additionally, we are unable to cover any defects or damages to any products showing signs of prolonged outdoor use as it voids our warranty.
Who can I contact about accessibility issues I encountered on this site?
Floyd is committed to making its website accessible to all individuals. Please click here to review our Accessibility Statement.
Do you offer financing options? What is Affirm?
We do! For select items you can choose to finance your purchase via our third-party partner Affirm. We offer 3 or 6 month financing options at 0% APR or 12 month financing with APR determined by your credit once approved. All eligible products will be noted on their product page, with the option to pay with Affirm in checkout.
Please note, Floyd does not determine approval for an Affirm loan. Approval is based on credit history. If your loan is denied and you would like more information, please contact Affirm’s customer support directly.
Once approved, your loan will take effect once your order has shipped. For more information on your monthly billing cycle, amount left due or additional questions on your payments, please contact Affirm’s customer support directly.
Will my card be charged at checkout or time of shipment?
Credit card: If you purchased using a credit card, your card will be charged at the time of checkout for both in stock and backordered products. If a product is in stock, it ships out in 1-5 business days. If a product is backordered, the estimated shipping window will be noted under the "Add to Cart" button on the product page once you select your preferred color/size variation. Once your product ships, you will receive your tracking number(s) via email.
Affirm: If you completed your purchase using the Affirm loan financing option, your loan will not be activated until your order ships. Once shipped, your payment schedule will begin as set up with Affirm.
What is a backorder?
Popular products may sell out and temporarily be on backorder. This means that the products are currently out of stock with shipments on their way to re-stock our warehouses. Ordering a product that is currently on backorder is a worry-free way to ensure that you will be first in line for the new inventory and that the product you ordered will be sent out to you as soon as we receive it!
- You will be notified via a shipping confirmation email (with a tracking details) once your order has shipped. You will not need to contact our Customer Experience team, or do anything to follow up on your order. We will take care of it for you from here on out!
- If you order any additional products that are not on backorder, they will ship separately. You will be notified via a separate shipping confirmation email to confirm shipment for any products shipping separately.
- We will do our best to estimate when backordered items are expected to ship, and post this information on the product page by color/size variation, underneath the “Add to Cart” button. This is only an estimation and is subject to change — shipping dates are not guaranteed.
My item is backordered, can I cancel the order?
Once an order has been placed, we cannot guarantee that a backordered item can be cancelled. Our suppliers and warehouse move quickly, but it is a process. They often begin building and packing days before orders go out the door. Once an order is in this process, we do not have as much flexibility to cancel or prevent an item from shipping.
In order for a cancellation to be attempted, the request must be received no less than 5 days before the communicated ship date noted on site at the time of purchase. You may request a cancellation by emailing our Customer Experience Team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do everything we can to accommodate your cancellation but will let you know if it is possible (or not) within 1 business day.
My card was declined! Can you tell me what happened?
Due to the nature of online transactions, the errors we can see are very generic. Unfortunately, it could be a variety of factors. We recommend calling your card issuer to resolve this. Most likely, there is a hold placed on your account as part of their fraud prevention service. If you used a debit card, make sure there are sufficient funds in your account before proceeding. Make sure the correct billing address associated with your card was entered. If it is different than your shipping address, there is a checkbox that you can uncheck to reveal more address fields. Also, make sure all your card information was entered correctly. Did you get a new or replacement card recently? Even though the number remained the same, the expiration date and security code may have changed!
After you figure out what happened, please empty your browser's cache before trying to checkout again.
I tried placing my order, but received a card error. Did my order go through?
Rest assured, if you see any card errors during the checkout process, no orders were processed and no charges were made to your account. Upon a successful checkout, you will see an order confirmation page and receive an order confirmation e-mail.
What is the $1.00 charge to my card account?
Once you enter your billing information, the $1.00 you see in your account is how our store communicates with your bank. Rest assured, the amount will be credited back to you.
I am having trouble checking out. Can you manually process my order?
Sorry, we cannot. To protect our customer's information, we require all transactions be handled through our website. If you are having trouble with checkout, please contact our Customer Experience team at email@example.com and we would be happy to help troubleshoot any error you’re experiencing.
Is there a shipping charge?
Yes, most of our products ship for a 10% shipping fee (while The Mattress ships for free!). Depending on which item you purchase, it will ship via:
- Standard FedEx/UPS Ground: 10% of product total
- Standard Freight Delivery: 10% of product total Applies to Bed Frames, Tables and Shelving System orders totaling over 100 lbs.
Outdoor delivery to your address, Monday through Saturday, 8am-8pm. Scheduling is not available and no signature is required.
Scheduled home delivery, Monday through Saturday, 7am-8:30pm.
*In consideration of your health, we have worked with our freight partner to offer no-contact delivery. If you would like your order delivered outside your door with no signature required, please request a porch delivery exception and signature waiver during your scheduling phone call with our freight partner.
Do you offer assembly or delivery to any room in my home?
In consideration of your health and the health of our delivery partners, we have temporarily suspended Room of Choice Delivery and White Glove Assembly. These options will be available again for all Bed Frames, Tables and Shelving Systems totaling over 100 lbs. when it becomes safe to do so.
Why don't you offer free shipping?
We do not offer free shipping because the reality is, free shipping isn't free. The cost of “free” shipping is often included directly into the cost of the product itself.
To be sure you know exactly what you are paying for, we elected to charge a flat 10% shipping fee on the retail cost of our products instead of increasing prices and keeping the shipping "free."
Which carriers do you use to ship?
Domestically, we ship via FedEx Ground, UPS Ground and a Scheduled Freight Partner.
What is the shipping and delivery timeline?
In-stock orders are immediately transferred to our warehouse for processing and once your order is ready to ship, you will receive your tracking number(s) via email. From there, you will see your packages in motion within 1-5 business days. If a product is out of stock, the estimated shipping window will be noted under the "Add to Cart" button on the product page.
- Deliveries via FedEx/UPS Ground:
Once your order has shipped, delivery generally will occur within 1-5 business days, depending on your location.
- Due to the way FedEx/UPS handles their shipment volume, if your product contains multiple packages (i.e. The Shelf, The Sofa), they may arrive on separate days. Unfortunately, this process is out of our control at this time.
If you ordered multiple products with different shipping timelines, your order will be split so that products with faster shipping timelines can ship sooner.
- Deliveries via our Scheduled Freight Partner:
Due to the developing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are experiencing longer than usual transit times. During this time, your items should arrive at your local delivery hub within 14 business days after purchase. Once your order reaches the local hub, you will be contacted by our freight partner to schedule delivery to your address within 3 business days.
How do I schedule my delivery?
Scheduled Freight Delivery:
Once your order arrives at your local delivery hub, you will receive a phone call from our freight partner to schedule the day of its delivery to your home. Deliveries can take place between 7am and 8:30pm, Monday-Saturday. It is not possible to select your preferred delivery appointment so please select a day you can be available anytime between 7am-8:30pm. You will be provided a 4 hour delivery window the evening before your delivery day and can opt in to email and text notifications for real-time delivery updates. On the day of delivery, our partner will contact you ~30 minutes before your order arrives.
FedEx/UPS Ground Delivery:
If your order ships via FedEx/UPS Ground, a scheduled delivery is not available. You will receive tracking info via email once the order has shipped.
Are there any specifics I should know about my Scheduled Freight Delivery?
- An adult must be present at the time of delivery and pets must be clear from the delivery area.
- Please provide a clear path, both indoors and outdoors, for the delivery team to ensure successful delivery and assembly.
- The delivery team is not able to assist in removing any furniture or complementary components from your room or home—they cannot disassemble and remove your old bed or mattress in order to assemble your new Bed Frame.
- Assembly and packaging removal are only included with White Glove Delivery.
Can you expedite shipping?
No, we are not able to accommodate expedited shipping at this time. All shipping timelines are communicated in checkout before placing an order.
What about Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico?
We are able to ship a limited number of Floyd products to Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico for a flat shipping fee per item. Please see below for a summary of shipping charges for eligible products:
- The Shelf Brackets: $70

- The Utility Set
Do you ship to FPO and APO addresses?
We are not able ship to these addresses at this time.
Do you ship internationally? What are the shipping fees?
We ship a select number of products internationally. If your destination is one of the 190 countries that the United States Postal Service's Priority International service ships to, your new Floyd will make it to you! A flat rate shipping fee does apply, which does not include any customs fees.
Each product is packaged separately and therefore must ship separately, which means the flat shipping rate is per product.
- The 16" Legs: $100 USD
- The Utility Set: $140 USD
- The Shelf Brackets: $80 USD
Will there be a customs fee? And, will I be responsible for that cost?
Yes, there will likely be a customs fee when the product arrives in your home country. Unfortunately, we are not able to quote that specific cost as it varies considerably between countries. You are responsible for paying that fee before claiming your package(s).
How long will my international Floyd shipment take to arrive?
We cannot wait to get you your new Floyd very soon! Preparing your package(s) for international shipment typically takes 3-5 business days and once shipped via USPS International, will arrive to most locations around the world within 2-4 weeks.
Please keep in mind, every country's system for delivering foreign shipments is unique and we unfortunately cannot predict the customs clearance process and timeline for your destination. We will provide the international tracking number so you can monitor your order’s progress and if your country requests it, please reach out firstname.lastname@example.org to request your Commercial Invoice for cost confirmation.

If you’d prefer for us to remove the mattress, we’ll arrange a pick-up at your home and haul it away for a $100 recycling fee. We ask you to take steps to ensure the Mattress isn’t tossed into a landfill.

What materials is The Sofa made from?
The Sofa is made with powder coated steel legs and finished birch plywood panels or upholstered radiata pine plywood panels, depending on if you choose birch or upholstered respectively. The seat cushions have a polyurethane foam interior; the back and arm cushions have a synthetic feather fill. The cushion fabric is made from 95% polyester and 5% nylon. We chose this fabric make-up specifically to allow for sofa cushions that are stain-resistant and easy to clean — two things our thousands of survey respondents specified that they prioritize in a sofa.
How many people can sit on The Sofa? How much weight can it hold?
Depending on the configuration, The Sofa sits 2-4 people comfortably.
Additionally, the Sofa has a tested weight capacity of 300 lbs per seat.
Do I need any tools for assembly or disassembly of my Sofa?
You’ll need a Floyd Tool, which is included with you purchase of the Sofa! If you lost it, The Floyd Tool uses a standard allen wrench. Either 4mm or 5/32" will work.
Should I be worried about any off-gassing?
No! All the wood components in The Sofa meet the TSCA Title VI and CARB Phase II standards for off-gassing. The foam used in the cushions of The Sofa are below regulatory standards for VOC emissions and are in are in full compliance with ISO 14184-1:2011.
Does the cushion fabric contain any flame retardants or chemicals?
Our sofa is free of chemical flame retardants. Our fabrics are in full conformance with California Proposition 65. Similar to Patagonia’s Durable Water Repellent, we chose a shorter-chain C6 fluorocarbon-based treatment because it breaks down faster over time and is less harmful for the environment.
Is it normal for The Sofa to have an odor upon delivery?
Some people may notice a new foam smell for the first few days, but it should go away within the first week. The smell comes from the newly-made foam used in the seat cushions. The foam used in the cushions is under regulatory limits for VOC emissions and is in full compliance with ISO 14184-1:2011.
If the smell persists for more than one week, we recommend placing a fan near the sofa, or temporarily placing the seat cushions in an area with good ventilation — like a porch, entryway, or garage — when not in use to help dissipate the smell.
Do The Sofa legs come with anything to protect my floors?
Yes! The Sofa legs come with glides to protect your floors. You shouldn’t need any additional protection.
Do you offer free Sofa swatches?
Yes! They are available on the Sofa product page, linked here. Just click on the gray "Request Swatches" link directly under the color selections on the right side of the page. For any questions or assistance around color choices, please reach out to our Design Services Team. If you’re in Detroit, you can swing by our HQ to view our Showroom at 1948 Division St. If you’re elsewhere, be sure to check out our Showroom locations for a Floyd Sofa near you.
The Sofa cushions aren’t attached — will they slide out from under me?
No, The Sofa cushions shouldn’t slide, even as you move around! The design of the frame holds the cushions in place with the help of friction between the base and the cushions themselves.
How do I clean the fabric?
In General: For mild spills, blot with a paper towel. For tougher spills, use a mild soap and water mix. To make the soap and water mixture, take 1 teaspoon of a liquid detergent such as Tide and mix it with 16 oz. of water in a bowl or plastic container — do not over wet the material. Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered — doing so could negate the stain-resistant technology.
Liquid Spills: When cleaning a liquid spill, immediately blot the fabric surface with a cloth/towel to remove the spilled liquid. To spot clean the spilled area, soak a clean cloth/towel in a soap and water mixture and clean the stained area in a gentle circular motion. If needed, take a damp, clean cloth and go over the affected area to remove any soap residue from the fabric. Do not over wet the material. If the soap and water mixture does not remove the stain completely, then repeat the above process using a multi-purpose cleaner (such as Woolite Fabric and Upholstery Cleaner). Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered.
Non-liquid Spills: When cleaning a non-liquid spill, immediately remove the excess spilled material from the fabric by lifting the spilled material off the affected area with a butter knife and accumulating the spilled material onto a cloth/towel. To spot clean the spilled area, soak a clean cloth/towel in a soap and water mixture and clean the stained area in a gentle circular motion. If needed, take a damp, clean cloth and go over the affected area to remove any soap residue from the fabric. Do not over wet the material. If the soap and water mixture does not remove the stain completely, then repeat the above process using a multi-purpose cleaner (such as Woolite Fabric and Upholstery Cleaner). Cushion covers should not be removed and laundered.
Stains that ARE NOT covered include, but are not limited to: Oil-based products (such as salad dressing and lotion), wax-based products (such as candle wax and crayons), ink marks and mustard.
Can I remove the covers and machine wash them?
No — any spot cleaning of The Sofa fabric should be done with the covers on the cushions. Cushion covers should not be removed. Machine washing The Sofa covers will damage the stain-resistant technology. For deeper cleans of your sofa, professional cleaning is recommended.
I have a pet — do the cushions hold onto smells?
Our fabric should not hold onto the majority of pet smells. If for whatever reason, you notice an odor, we recommend placing a fan over or near The Sofa to help dissipate the odor.
Will The Sofa cushion fabric fade in direct light?
Like most fabric, The Sofa cushions may fade over time if placed in direct light. If you would like to avoid the natural fade of fabric, we recommend shielding The Sofa from direct light.
Why are the seat cushions shaped like a wedge?
The seat cushions are slightly wedge-shaped to provide a more comfortable sitting position.
Can I flip the seat cushions over?
Yes, as long as the zipper is facing the back, the seat cushions can be flipped over.
Why do The Sofa cushion covers have zippers?
The cushion covers have zippers because the covers are manufactured separately — they are then put on the cushions and sealed post-production. Zippers help with this process! The zippers are NOT there to allow for the covers to be removed from the cushions. We don’t recommend removing the cushion covers as they may be difficult to get back onto the cushions.
Do the zippers show in the back? Can I move them inward to avoid?
The zippers should always be facing the back. Do not place the cushions so the zippers are on the side or front, as this will affect the seating position.
What configurations does the Shelving System come in?
The Shelving System comes in two overarching configurations: Tall and Short. There are three tall configurations: Tall, Wardrobe, and Display. The Wardrobe configuration comes with a bar that allows you to hang clothing. The Display configuration comes with one angled shelf that allows you to show off (display) your favorite magazines or art!
Our limited edition Ghostly x Floyd Shelf is only available in Tall. Please note that the Shelving System add-ons, both now and in the future, are not compatible with the Ghostly Shelf.
What materials is the Shelving System made of and what colors does it come in?
The shelves are powder coated sheet steel and the wood supports are made out of birch plywood with ash wood faces, finished in a water-based clear matte finish. The tracks on the back of the wood supports are powder coated sheet steel, that match the color of the shelves.
We offer the Shelving System in Black, White, and Forest Green.
The Ghostly Shelf has the same birch plywood supports with ash wood faces as the other pieces in our Shelving System, just in a water-based matte black finish. The shelves are powder coated sheet steel and the tracks on the back of the wood supports are powder coated sheet steel as well.
Does the wood off-gas any VOC’s?
The wood supports are CARB II and TSCA Title VI Certified – the highest government standards for formaldehyde off-gassing.
How does assembly work?
Please find the Assembly Instructions PDF linked here.
The Assembly video can be found here.
Does the Shelving System require any tools for assembly?
Yes. For assembly you will need to use a 4mm (5/32”) hex tool that is provided.
For installing the wall anchor kit, you will need additional tools. Be sure to grab a power drill, a Phillips head screwdriver, and/or hammer.
Does the Shelving System need to be attached to a wall?
We highly recommend placing the Shelving System against a wall and securing the tall units with the Wall Anchor Kit to help prevent serious injuries from furniture tip-overs. The risk of serious injury due to furniture tip-over is reduced with the short shelf because it is under 35 inches, but the risk is not eliminated. We also recommend placing the Short Shelf against the wall and encourage you to be mindful of placing these units in a safe area for all members of your home.
To further reduce the risk of furniture tip-overs: _Place heaviest items in the lowest shelves. _Do not set TVs or other heavy objects on the top of the shelving system. _Never allow children to climb or hang on shelves.
The Tall configurations of the shelving system come with a Wall Anchor Kit. Remember, this is especially important in homes with young children or pets. You can find instructions for installing the wall anchor system in the instruction manual. The Wall Anchor Kit is in compliance with ASTM F3096-14, the standard performance specification for tip-over restraints. Note that the use of tip-over restraints may only reduce, but not eliminate, the risk of tip-over.
Are the shelves adjustable?
The shelving system has nearly endless modularity options! It’s truly a chance for you to express your own style and find an option that fits perfectly within your space.
You will have the option to add on to your tall, short, display, or wardrobe shelving system and attach additional tall, short, display, or wardrobe units.
Additionally, each shelf within the system has three height options allowing you to easily adjust the shelves up and down in order to fit your most prized possessions perfectly. You can also remove shelves as desired to create even more vertical spacing between shelves.
How do I expand my existing Floyd Shelving System?
The Shelving System allows you to add units indefinitely. “Add-ons” are available to expand your Shelving System with additional units on either side.
Please note that add-ons are not compatible with the Ghostly Shelf.
Each add-on unit shares the center Wood Support, so for example, when attaching an additional Tall Shelf add-on to an existing Tall Shelf, you will receive one package for the shelves, and one package with two new Wood Supports (rather than four). Attach the new unit next to the first unit, using the existing original Wood Supports to anchor the add-on.
Any Tall configuration expansion add-on (The Tall Shelf, The Wardrobe, The Display) and The Short Shelf can be added to any existing Tall configuration.
Any additional Short Shelf expansion add-ons can be added to a Short Shelf.
If you have a Short Shelf and would like to add a Tall configuration, you will need to purchase The complete Tall configuration, because you will need four tall Wood Supports (the Short Shelf would then be added to the Tall, and you would have two extra short Wood Supports). You cannot attach a Tall expansion add-on to a Short Shelf.
Here are the available add-ons. If you have any questions about add-on compatibility, please review the information above or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Tall Shelf Add-on
- Short Shelf Add-on
- Wardrobe Shelf Add-on
- Complete Display Shelf Add-on
How much weight can the Shelving System hold?
An individual shelf has an approximate weight limit of 65 lbs.
The Short Shelf allows for a weight limit of 195 lbs a complete unit, distributed appropriately across each of the 3 shelves.
The Tall Shelf allows for a weight limit of 390 lbs for a complete unit, distributed appropriately across each of the six (6) shelves.
The Display Shelf allows for a weight limit of 35 lbs for the one angled display shelf, and 325 lbs, distributed appropriately across each of the other five (5) shelves.
The Wardrobe Shelf has a 50 lb weight limit for the wooden dowel rod and a 195 lb weight for the three shelves, distributed appropriately across each of the three (3) shelves.
How should weight be distributed on the shelves?
We recommend placing your heavier items on the lower shelves of your shelving system (here’s looking at you, avid record collectors!). Even distribution horizontally across the shelves is also recommended so be sure to keep this in mind during your shelf curating process.
How should I use The Side Table?
We created The Side Table as a versatile table that could be used throughout your home. It’s great as a pair of bedside tables; in the living room next to a couch or chair — even as a stool. The Side Table is designed to go anywhere.
Why is there a price difference between The Birch Side Table and The Linoleum Side Table?
The price of The Birch Side Table reflects the higher cost of the birch veneer for the surface, as well as the more intricate manufacturing process for this type of surface.
How do I clean The Side Table?
- Linoleum Surface: For basic cleaning, the best way to clean the surface of the table is to use 1 part dish washing liquid (such as Dawn, etc.) to 1 part water. Do NOT use Windex or other harsh cleaning supplies on the surface, as this could damage or warp the linoleum. For minor scuffs, use Linseed Oil (boiled or unboiled), which can be found at your local hardware store, or online. Apply the oil directly to the affected area and let sit for 5 minutes. Then, using a damp cloth, buff the area in a circular motion. Allow the area to dry completely before using. You may need to reapply and repeat this process a few times to fully remove blemishes.
- Birch Surface: For basic cleaning, dust with any regular dust cloth or clean with any wood cleaning spray. For cleaning spills or stains, use a damp cloth.
Is there anything I shouldn't put on The Floyd Side Table?
Be careful of putting potted plants directly The Side Table! We recommend putting a coaster or trivet underneath any planter to protect the surface.
Does The Side Table off-gas any VOCs?
The Side Table is manufactured to meet the highest government standards (CARB 2) for VOC off-gassing. There is a negligible amount of VOCs, if any at all.
Can I order just The Side Table top to use with The Floyd Legs I already have? Or, just The Side Table legs to make my own table?
Unfortunately not. The Floyd Side Table legs and table top are designed as a system of parts, and will not function separately. They are not available for purchase on their own.
How do I clean The Coffee Table?
For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth with a dab of dish soap or vinegar. For anything tougher, use vinegar diluted in water. Wipe the table dry after cleaning, and never leave standing water on the surface for an extended period of time. The surface is made from real wood and as such may fade over time in direct sunlight. The legs can be dusted or cleaned with a damp cloth.
Is there anything I shouldn't put on The Coffee Table?
For best protection, use a coaster when placing drinks or hot items on The Coffee Table. It is real birch wood, after all! Be careful of putting potted plants directly on the surface — potted house plants may leave water marks on the table if left for an extended period of time. Please always use a drainage tray with your plants! We also recommend placing a coaster or trivet under any plants, as well as frequently cleaning the area under the pot.
Is the Coffee Table surface available for purchase on its own?
The Coffee Table surfaces are not available for purchase on their own — the product is designed as a system of parts and will not function separately.
I want to source my own surface for a coffee table — do you still have that option?
Yes! We still offer The 16” Floyd Legs.
Why is there a price difference between The Birch Table and The Linoleum Table?
The price of The Birch Table reflects the higher cost of the birch veneer for the surface, as well as the more intricate manufacturing process for this type of surface.
How do I clean The Table?
- Linoleum: For basic cleaning, the best way to clean the surface of The Table is to use 1 part dish washing liquid (such as Dawn, etc.) to 1 part water. Do NOT use Windex or other harsh cleaning supplies on the surface, as this could damage or warp the linoleum. For minor scuffs, use Linseed Oil (boiled or unboiled), which can be found at your local hardware store, or online. Apply the oil directly to the affected area and let sit for 5 minutes. Then, using a damp cloth, buff the area in a circular motion. Allow the area to dry completely before using. You may need to reapply and repeat this process a few times to fully remove blemishes.
- Birch: For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth with a dab of dish soap or vinegar. For anything tougher, use vinegar diluted in water. Wipe the table dry after cleaning, and never leave standing water on the surface for an extended period of time. Potted house plants may leave watermarks on the table if left for an extended period of time. We suggest using water-tight pots or plastic drainage trays and frequently cleaning the area under the pot. The surface is made from real wood and as such may fade over time in direct sunlight. The legs can be dusted or cleaned with a damp cloth. Steel Legs: The table legs can be cleaned with a damp cloth in warm water. Be sure to dry off afterwards.
Is there anything I shouldn't put on The Table?
For best protection, use a coaster when placing drinks or hot items on The Table. Be careful of putting potted plants directly on the surface! We recommend placing using a drainage tray with a coaster or trivet under any plants.
Can I stain my Birch surface to be darker?
No. We do not advise altering the Birch surface in any way. It is already finished with a water-based clear coat on all sides, so it’s armored and ready to go from all angles!
Does The Table off-gas any VOCs?
The Table is manufactured to meet the highest government standards (TSCA Title VI and CARB 2) for VOC off-gassing. There is a negligible amount of VOCs, if any at all.
Is The Table surface available for purchase on its own?
The Table surfaces are not available for purchase on their own currently, but it is something we’re considering for the future! If this is something you’d like to see, feel free to let our CX team know by emailing email@example.com.
I want to source my own surface for a table — do you still have that option?
Does The Mattress sleep hot or cold?
The Floyd Mattress has a Tencel top layer that is highly breathable for temperature regulation, and bonus, it’s resistant to bacteria! Floyd also uses a Copper Graphite Cool Flow™ foam layer infused with copper and graphite to help dissipate heat. The combo of these two makes for a well regulated sleeping temperature. The inner springs sleep up to 28% cooler than foam, and are proven to be 26% more durable than foam encasements.
Will The Mattress work with any bed frame?
It sure will! While the Floyd Mattress is best suited for platform beds (i.e. the Floyd Bed), it will work with any slatted bed frame. If using a more traditional bed frame that requires a boxspring, you can place the Floyd Mattress on the boxspring.
Floyd offers 5 sizes of mattress - Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King.
And just because we offer both a Bed Frame and Mattress, it doesn’t mean you have to bundle with us. You can purchase a Floyd Mattress to go with your West Elm bed or an Avocado mattress to go with your Floyd Bed Frame — we just want you to have as much information as possible to purchase confidently.
What is the weight capacity of The Mattress?
Thanks to high-quality materials and construction, the Floyd Mattress can comfortably support individual sleepers up to 350 pounds with no discernible loss of comfort or support.
Where is The Mattress made?
We have partnered with a wonderful manufacturer right here in the USA.
Will my Floyd Bed Frame + Mattress be delivered together?
At this time, the Floyd Bed Frame and Mattress are shipped from separate locations by different fulfillment partners, so they will not arrive together.
How does The Mattress feel?
We wanted to design a mattress that you didn’t just want to take a nap on. We wanted to bring you a mattress that you could spend all of your cave days and cozy nights on. Call in to work sick kind of comfortable. And we think we got it just right.
When you lay on The Mattress, it has a gentle yet supportive reception, that cradles you like a thousand tiny hands, relieving your pressure points. The foam has give to allow you to sink in, and the springs provide the support to align your spine and make you feel weightless. Plus our signature copper graphite infused layer keeps a well-regulated temperature all night long.
We conducted some customer interviews before launching The Mattress to see how best to communicate comfort to you. On a scale of 1-10, the average rating for firmness was a 7, which is a pretty sweet spot to be in. Some keywords customers used to describe The Mattress during testing were "cool," "supportive," "squishy" and "comfortable."
I like my mattress to be super soft, is this a good fit for me?
The good news about a hybrid mattress like ours is that it conforms more readily to all sleep styles. We polled customers before introducing The Mattress and asked what they would like to see. The resounding response was that they wanted support. So The Mattress provides a little bit of both support and softness, leaning more on the supportive side. User testing rated The Mattress as a 7 on a 1-10 scale of soft to firm. If you try Floyd and prefer a little extra softness, our customers have reported that adding a topper was successful in providing extra plush to their sleep. That being said, if you need a 1-6 softness, you can try The Mattress with confidence, knowing we have a 30-day environmentally-friendly trial and return policy.
I need the firmest mattress out there, should I try Floyd?
We performed user testing and on a scale from 1-10 of soft to firm, The Mattress was rated a 7! Is our mattress on the far end of the firm spectrum? Not exactly — but is it supportive? Yes. That being said, if you need a 10, you can try The Mattress with confidence, knowing we have a 30-day environmentally-friendly trial and return policy.
I sleep on my back, should that be a problem?
As you should! Sleeping on your back provides the best alignment for your spine and you are more suited to all kinds of mattresses. So Floyd should be right up your alley! The good news is that hybrid mattresses like ours are more adaptive to all different kinds of sleep styles.
Can you sit on the side and not slide off?
The edges of the mattress have a higher gauge steel coil, providing a little extra support to keep you from rolling off of your bed mid-slumber.
How do I unbox The Mattress?
Start by opening one end of the box. Place the open end of the box down, and then lift the box up.
Place the compressed Mattress on your Bed Frame and remove the outer plastic. Be sure to recycle! (Check your local guidelines for recyclability). Then, unroll The Mattress.
Cut the inner bag carefully as to avoid cutting The Mattress' upholstery. You will hear a rush of air as The Mattress expands. Completely remove the inner plastic bag.
After one hour The Mattress will be fully decompressed and ready to use!
Do I need a cover on my Mattress?
The Mattress Cover is not waterproof or removable/washable, so for extra protection, we’d recommend adding a mattress protector.
Can I flip The Mattress over?
No. The Mattress is constructed with distinct layers of foam and coils and has a specific top and bottom that helps support you when you sleep. You can, however, rotate The Mattress 180 degrees.
How should The Mattress be cleaned?
The best way to keep The Mattress clean is to use a waterproof mattress protector. For general care and cleaning, we recommend washing your bedding weekly. We also recommend rotating your mattress 180 degrees every six months or so (not flipping it – The Mattress is constructed with distinct top & bottom layers). This will help prolong the life of The Mattress. At the same intervals, we advise vacuuming your Mattress with an upholstery attachment (and your Bed Frame, while you’re at it!). The Floyd Mattress has a Tencel cover that is naturally hypoallergenic, but vacuuming it can help remove any dust that naturally accumulates over time.
For any spills, first dab the area with a clean cloth to absorb as much of the spill as possible. If needed, you can spot clean spills and stains with cold water and a mild soap or detergent. Do not use bleach.
Does The Mattress require a box spring?
There is no boxspring required for a platform, or slatted bed frame. If you have a bed frame that requires a boxspring, The Mattress can go right on top.
What kind of foam is used in The Mattress?
Is there any off-gassing from the foam in The Mattress?
Due to our CertiPUR-US® foams, there are very low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).
When you open your new Mattress, you may notice a light scent at first. Please know that this is due to the contents being under pressure, and will dissipate within a few days as The Mattress acclimates to its new environment.
Is there any latex in The Mattress?
Rest assured, we considered allergies when choosing the materials for The Mattress, and we chose to go latex free.
What kind of warranty does The Mattress come with? What is covered?
The Mattress is covered by a 10-year warranty. You can read more about it here.
Do you offer a trial period for The Mattress?
In the spirit of designing things to be kept, if you’re not satisfied with The Mattress, we ask our customers to take steps to ensure it isn’t tossed into a landfill. We know that roughly 20 million mattresses are thrown away each year in the US alone, and even recycling has its limitations, so we invite you to be thoughtful about where your unused mattress will go.
If you’d like to return The Mattress, you have 30 days from receiving your order to initiate a return. Once initiated, you’ll have an additional 30 days to donate The Mattress somewhere, and receive a full refund with proof of donation. If you’d prefer for us to remove The Mattress, we’ll come to your house, and take it away for a $100 recycling fee.
What is the Mattress Recycling Fee?
New laws in California, Connecticut and Rhode Island now require retailers to collect a small fee at check-out for each mattress sold.The fees are then transferred to the state to fund their recycling efforts. The collection of fees is mandated by these new laws. Even if you aren't getting rid of a mattress now, you will eventually and the collection of fees now help to cover those costs down the road. The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC), a non-profit organization established by the mattress industry, created and manages the program. The MRC utilizes a network of organizations to effectively pickup, transport and recycle old mattresses within the new government regulations. To learn more about the initiative, visit mattressrecyclingcouncil.org.
Is there anywhere I can try The Mattress before purchasing?
You can try out The Mattress by visiting The Floyd Shop in Detroit or Brooklinen in Brooklyn. But if you cannot make it in to try before you buy, as with all things Floyd, we have a 30-day return window. If after 30 days, you aren’t 100% thrilled with The Mattress, please reach out to us to arrange a return. You will have another 30 days to donate it to a local charity for a full refund, or we will schedule a pick-up for it to be recycled for $100 fee. Check out the details here.
What should I do with my old mattress?
To make room for your new Floyd Mattress, we recommend donating your mattress if possible. You can use our list of resources here as a guide. If you live in Connecticut, Rhode Island or California, you can have your mattress recycled for free.
How are the Panels finished?
The Panels are finished with a light clear coat that is UV sealed.
Are variations in the wood grain of my Panels normal?
Yes! Birch and Walnut are natural materials, so it is expected for each Panel to have slight color, texture, and grain variations.
Can I exchange my current Panels for another finish?
While we do not facilitate exchanges, please reach out to our Customer Experience Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about upgrading your Bed Frame!
I like the exposed edge of the Birch Panels, do you have that available for the Walnut?
While our Birch Panels show the exposed, plywood edge, our Walnut Panels feature full-grain edge banding on all four sides. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer exposed Walnut Panels or Birch Panels with edge banding.
Where is the Walnut sourced?
Our Walnut Panels are finished in American-grown, FSCⓇ Certified black walnut (Juglans nigra) veneer and made right here in the US! Learn more about FSC Certification here.
What makes the Panels different from just any piece of wood?
The Panels are constructed with a honeycomb core, allowing them to be lightweight without compromising their strength.
Can I alter my Panels, either by refinishing or cutting them?
We do not recommend altering your Panels. They are UV sealed with a light clear coat, and are not solid wood throughout. Cutting, sanding or rounding them will damage their structural integrity.
Do the Panels off-gas VOCs?
The Panels are produced to meet the highest government standards for VOC off-gassing. There is very little off-gassing, if any at all.
I have a Full mattress—can I use it with The Bed Frame?
While we don't make a Full Bed Frame, you can absolutely put a Full mattress on our Queen Bed Frame, and many customers do! With a Full mattress, you will just see a bit more of the Panels! Alternatively, a Full mattress will not work on our Twin Bed Frame.
Does The King Bed Frame work with a California King mattress?
The King Bed Frame without The Headboard is 89” wide and 86" deep - definitely big enough for a California King mattress. With the addition of The Headboard however, the depth of The King Bed Frame cannot accommodate a California King mattress. The Headboard causes the mattress to sit a bit further away from the wall and can lead to an overhang at the foot of The Bed Frame. For this reason, we do not recommend pairing a California King mattress with our King Bed Frame with Headboard.
Can I modify the size of my Bed Frame, and if so, how do I do that?
Yes! The Bed Frame is meant to be modular, so that’s exactly what we’re hoping you’ll do! Here are the following combinations you’ll need:
- Twin → Queen : 2 Middle Supports + 1 Panel
Queen → King : 2 Middle Supports + 1 Panel
Twin → King: 4 Middle Supports + 2 Panels
Please e-mail us at email@example.com if this is something you’d like to explore!
Will my mattress slide around?
The weight of most mattresses, coupled with your body weight, prevents most mattresses from sliding on the Bed Frame. However, if you find your mattress slipping, we recommend placing a rug pad, cut to size, between your mattress and the Bed Frame to ensure there is enough friction to keep your mattress firmly in place!
Can my mattress breathe on The Bed Frame?
Unless you live in an incredibly humid climate, there's no need to worry about your mattress breathing. While the Bed Frame does not allow for as much air supply to your mattress as a traditional slatted frame, this should not be an issue — be sure to clean up any spills on the mattress, Panels, or any other moisture that may accumulate.
If you do live in a humid climate or space, we recommend that you use a dehumidifier to ensure you are providing the proper environment for the longevity of your Bed Frame. Visit our warranty page for more information.
Can I increase the height of The Bed Frame?
No, we do not recommend increasing the height of your Bed. There is no way to do this without compromising the Bed structurally.
Can The Bed Frame withstand intense action ;) ?
We know what you are thinking, and yes, the Bed Frame can withstand lots of action and will not make a sound.
What mattress & bedding would you recommend with The Bed Frame?
If you’d like further recommendations, please reach out to our Design Services Team here.
How do I use the Ratchet Straps?
My Strap is too long. What do I do?
If you have excess length after setting up your Bed Frame, you can wrap it around the Strap itself or cut it off with scissors — be sure to leave a bit of length to make re-assembling in the future easier.
How do I release the Ratchet Strap?
To release the Straps, hold down the release bar; the spring bar on longer side of the ratchet, and open the ratchet all the way until it stops. Pull the strap down and away from the ratchet until it loosens.
Can The Headboard be used with any size of The Bed Frame?
The Headboard is available in two sizes: Queen and King. The King Headboard is unfortunately not compatible when using a California King mattress. With the current design, we are not able to offer a Twin Headboard.
Is The Headboard angled?
The Headboard is angled back slightly (79.5 degrees from the back of the Bed Frame). With your Headboard Brackets placed 2” from the end of the Panels though, this angling should not take up additional space.
Is The Headboard made from the same material as The Bed Panels?
Yes! The Headboard is made with the same American-grown, FSCⓇ Certified Black Walnut or Birch veneer as our Bed Panels. Similarly, they are also constructed with a honeycomb core, keeping it lightweight without compromising its strength.
Does The Headboard off-gas VOCs?
Like The Bed Panels, The Headboard is produced to meet the highest government standards for VOC off-gassing. There is very little off-gassing, if any at all.
Can I alter my Headboard Panel, either by refinishing or cutting it?
We do not recommend altering your Headboard Panel. It is UV sealed with a light clear coat, and is not solid wood throughout. Cutting, sanding or rounding it will damage its structural integrity.
Can I make my own Headboard?
Definitely—you can purchase Headboard Hardware on its own to make a new Headboard (from the material of your choice!) for your Bed Frame.
What does The Underbed Storage consist of?
The Underbed Storage is a storage system designed specifically for use with The Floyd Bed Frame. The unit is a canvas basket pull out drawer with a steel wire frame. It’s attached to two Bed Frame End Supports that incorporate drawer slides.
Please note: Ordering The Underbed Storage will result in two additional End Supports, made specifically to attach The Underbed Storage to your Floyd Bed Frame. We encourage you to save your original End Supports in case you want to set up another Bed Frame in the future. The Floyd Bed Frame is modular, which means you can always upgrade to a larger size or downgrade to a smaller size by using the system of parts in different ways!
How does The Underbed Storage work?
Once assembled, The Underbed Storage works like a drawer that is attached to your Bed Frame. You can pull it out to place items in it and push it closed to store your goods.
The storage basket sits recessed from the edge of The Bed Frame by 2.125”.
How far out does the drawer extend when it’s fully opened?
The drawer extends 15.5" out from The Bed Frame when fully opened.
How does assembly work?
The Underbed Storage assembly video can be found here.
What type of fabric is used?
We use 18oz Cotton Canvas for The Underbed Storage.
Is the canvas washable?
While the canvas is technically removable, we don’t suggest machine washing it. Because it is a heavier weight canvas, it is actually water resistant. We suggest spot cleaning with warm water & soap, or a simple duster! You can remove the basket to hang dry if needed. The steel End Supports can we wiped down with a damp rag.
Can I put two Underbed Storage kits on any Floyd Bed Frame?
Yes! You can add one Underbed Storage kit to either side of your Floyd Bed, totaling two units per Bed Frame – it works with Twin, Queen, and King Bed Frames.
Note: You can not add two Underbed Storage kits to the same side and they cannot be added to end of The Bed Frame.
Does The Underbed Storage work with other bed frames?
No, we’ve designed The Underbed Storage exclusively for The Floyd Bed Frame.
What is The Framework?
The Framework is everything you need to make a Bed Frame, except for the Panels! The Framework allows you to source your own panels to make a customized Bed Frame.
How do I source my own panels? What dimensions should I look for?
Sourcing your own panels is easy! You can look up a local establishment that sells wood and give them a call with the dimensions you are looking for — if you would like to make panels that are the exact size as the Panels we provide with The Bed Frame, you will ask for 86” long x 22” wide x 1.5” thick. The 1.5" thickness is very important to be sure the panels sit properly in The Framework.
You can make your panels any length or width you would like though, as long as your mattress will be fully supported by the panels (there should be no overhang). If you would like your panels to be flush with your mattress, you can determine their size based on the size of your mattress. Keep in mind that a Twin Bed Framework includes Supports to hold 2 panels, a Queen Bed Framework includes Supports to hold 3 panels, and a King Bed Framework includes Supports to hold 4 panels.
Note: you can use two 0.75” pieces of wood glued together to get the 1.5” thickness. Similarly, outside of the U.S. you can use two 19mm pieces of wood to get a 38mm thickness. This will still work just fine :)
I've actually decided I want to purchase the Panels from Floyd, can I do that?
If you previously bought The Framework but now would like to purchase the Panels, you most certainly can! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I source my own Panels, how can I get them treated? Why should I treat the wood?
When sourcing your own panels, we recommend using plywood and sealing it with a clear water-based polyurethane. This process gives the wood a more “finished” look and also helps avoid the possibility for mold.
Is there any danger to not having my panels treated or sealed?
The only possible danger of getting not sealing or curing your sourced panels is the potential for mold.
What is the measurement of the Bed Framework "tab"?
The "tab" is the part of the Bed Framework that hooks over your panel and shows on the surface. The "tab" portion is 2" long x 2" wide.
What is the maximum weight The Utility Set can hold?
The maximum weight we recommend for The Utility Set is 125 lbs, including the surface you select. However, it depends significantly on the material you are using for the surface.
What size surface can I use with The Utility Set?
The maximum table surface size is 8' x 4' with a maximum diagonal of 9'. The minimum thickness for a surface is 1.5” and the maximum thickness for the surface is 1 ⅞" — a 2" surface will be too thick.
What are the dimensions of The Utility Set?
The Utility Set is 29.5” tall. The corner piece that hugs the corner of your surface material will take up a 2” x 2” square on top of the surface material. The depth of the mouth of the leg is 2”.
How much does The Utility Set weigh?
The Utility Set includes 4 Legs and weighs 16 lbs in total.
Does The Utility Set work for round surfaces?
The Utility Set cannot be used with round surfaces. It is designed to hug the corners of a rectangular surface.
Can I add casters or leveling feet to The Utility Set?
For your convenience, there is a hole in the bottom of each Leg of The Utility Set where a threaded leveling foot or caster wheel can be added — the thread size is 5/16"-18. Alternatively, we include cork pads to apply to the bottom of the Legs as well to use them exactly as they are!
How do I use the Ratchet Straps?
After setting up the straps, open the ratchet until it stops (3 clicks). Feed the strap through the slot in the middle of the ratchet, from the back to the front. Pull the strap all the way through, then crank the ratchet back & forth until the strap is tight.
My Strap is too long. What do I do?
If you have excess strap length after setting up your Utility Set, you can wrap it around itself or cut it off with scissors.
How do I release the Ratchet?
To release the straps, hold down the release bar; the spring bar on longer side of the ratchet, and open the ratchet all the way until it stops. Pull the strap down and away from the ratchet until it loosens.
What is the recommended use for The 16” Legs?
The 16" Legs are perfect for light to medium-use surfaces, such as a coffee or bedside table. We do not recommend using them to create a bench. In other words, please do not sit on them!
What is the weight limit for The 16” Legs?
For The 16" Legs, the maximum weight we recommend for both surface material and anything resting on top of the table is a total of 75 lbs combined.
What are the recommended dimensions for the sourced surface used with The 16” Legs?
The diagonal of your surface should not exceed 56". The minimum thickness we recommend for a surface material is 1.5” and the maximum thickness is 1 ⅞" — a 2" surface will be too thick.
What are the dimensions of The 16" Legs?
The 16” Legs are 16” tall, 2” wide and the tab on the top of The Legs is 2” x 2”.
How much do The 16” Legs weigh?
The 16" Legs include 4 legs and the entire set weighs 8 lbs.
Can The 16” Legs work with round surfaces?
Yes, The 16” Legs can be used with round surfaces. The leg will not sit flush against the round surface, but you can certainly use them to make a round coffee or bedside table!
Do you have standing height legs?
At this time, we do not have any standing height legs. However, if you truly desire a standing height option, you can use The Utility Set as a desk and make a smaller table with The 16" Floyd Legs to place on top!
I want to purchase just one Leg, is that possible?
We do not sell Legs individually at this time, our apologies!
Can I put casters on The 16" Legs?
Unfortunately The 16" Legs are not able to accommodate casters. They do not come with any holes drilled in the base of the leg to accommodate these or other additions.
Is there a weight limit for The Shelf Brackets?
The maximum weight we recommend being supported by The Shelf Brackets is 50 lbs., which includes both the surface itself as well as any items placed on the shelf. That being said, it greatly depends on the surface material you use as well as the wall material and mount.
What is the minimum and maximum thickness for a surface material?
The minimum thickness for a surface used with The Shelf Bracket is 1.5” and the maximum thickness is 1 ⅝" — a 2" surface will be too thick. Keep in mind the thickness of your material when determining the width and depth of your surface material!
What are the dimensions of The Shelf Brackets?
The Shelf Brackets are 5.5” deep, 7 ¾” tall, and 2” wide at the base of each Bracket and 1 ¾” wide at the top of The Bracket.
How much do The Shelf Brackets weigh?
The Shelf Brackets include 2 Shelf Brackets — for the left and right side of your surface material. The complete set weighs 4 lbs.
What is the maximum size shelf which can be made from The Shelf Brackets?
We recommend your shelf be no deeper than 12” and no wider than 56”.
How do you attach The Shelf Brackets to the wall?
There are many ways The Shelf Brackets can be installed, depending on what they will be holding as well as the wall material on which they will be mounted. The Shelf Brackets come with 4 stainless steel Phillips head screws and wall anchors (if necessary). Please keep in mind that different walls require different wall hardware. How much weight your shelf can hold will depend on your wall material and the hardware used for installation — if installing in studs, you do not need the wall anchors, but if you are installing in drywall you will need the wall anchors. Contact your local hardware store if you are not certain what you should use in your space!
Does the Hardware come with surface materials?
No, we do not sell our Hardware — The 16” Legs, The Utility Set or The Shelf Brackets - with a surface. Your creativity is required! We suggest checking out lumber mills, reclaimed wood warehouses, or antique stores for surface materials.
What kinds of surface materials do people typically use?
Plywood found at a lumber store, custom table tops, old doors, marble slabs, laminated wood, concrete — you name it and it's probably been used! The material properties of your surface material will determine the load capacity and stability of your table or shelf.
For example, a piece of 0.5" thick plywood should not be used to make a table or shelf that is 6' long. Please view The Utility Set, The 16” Leg and The Shelf Brackets product pages for additional dimension and weight recommendations for sourcing your own surface.
Are there any surface materials that you don't recommend using?
We recommend avoiding the following surface materials:
- Medium-density fibreboard (MDF)
- Particle board
- Any surfaces that are warped
What should I say when I call to purchase wood for my new Floyd Hardware?
You should have an idea of the dimensions of your project. This is very important for the end result. For instance, any wood surface two feet or wider should be at least an inch thick to prevent cupping, which is what happens when a thin piece of wood curls instead of laying flat. It is also important to note prices vary according to size and species.
If you are looking for a clean finish or an even base for staining or painting, you can ask them to sand it.
They can advise on what kind of wood is best for your purposes. For instance, maple is great for heavy-use tables, while a species like American cherry might be better suited for side tables. American cherry has a softer grain, which makes it more prone to dents and scratches. Some types of wood we typically recommend are birch, maple, ash, or walnut. Plywood is typically cheaper than solid wood but just as strong if you are working on a budget.
