Design & Fabrication

  • Are SENTIENT furniture products made in the USA?
    Yes, all SENTIENT furniture pieces are made at our Brooklyn, NY workshop with some help from our metal workshops in Pennsylvania. The vast majority of our wood and other fabrication materials are also from sustainable sources in New York and Pennsylvania. We have additional capacity for larger commercial and hospitality projects at our Guadalajara, Mexico workshop, but most collection items, including customized orders, are still produced in Brooklyn.
  • Who designs SENTIENT furniture?
    All SENTIENT furniture pieces are designed and built in-house, including prototypes, by SENTIENT at our Brooklyn, NY workshop under the direction of head designer Nersi Nasseri. 
  • Can I customize a product?
    Yes, you definitely can customize just about all of our products. We can help with drawings and renderings to help you better understand the nature, scale, and, ultimately, the overall look and feel of your customization before it is built.  If you have an idea in mind, we can help! 

Lead Time, Shipping & Delivery

  • Do you ship overseas?
    Yes, we can ship overseas. We build our shipping crates so we can pack and ship to most countries.

    We DO NOT ship orders put on this website overseas. To put orders with international delivery address please contact our studio.|

  • How long will it take to get my order?
    Our lead time, from approval of all details and drawings we will prepare for you, is typically 7 - 8 weeks. You will need to add a little on for shipping and delivery, depending on where you live.
  • What shipping carriers do you use?
    If you are in New York City or the NY Tri-State region, we are able to deliver directly to you. Beyond the Tri-State region, we will organize a reputable white glove carrier service such as Plycon Transport. They will pick up at our workshop in Brooklyn and deliver directly into your home or apartment anywhere in the US. If you want a crated shipment, we will build the shipping crate, and the order will be sent a common carrier to the logistics depot or any other location.

Product Care and Maintenance

  • How should I maintain my solid wood table?
    See Table Care and Maintenance Information for full details on maintaining your new SENTIENT table.
  • Are SENTIENT table tops waterproof?
    SENTIENT dining tables are typically solid American black walnut, oak, or maple woods. They are usually finished with several sealing protective coats before the application of several top finish clear coatings. These tables are designed for indoor use and will be perfectly protected from casual spills of most substances. A quick wipe off with a clean cloth when the spillage takes place eliminates any potential damage. See our Table Care and Maintenance Information attachment for a more detailed explanation for the care and maintenance of SENTIENT tables.
  • Can I use the product outdoors?
    We strongly advise against using black walnut, oak, or maple tables outdoors. For outdoor use, we would recommend specific outdoor wood species such as teak, ipe, mahogany, cedar, and some other central American species. We will be able to design and fabricate your table using all different woods, whether for indoor or outdoor use, including for use on commercial and hospitality projects.
  • Do you repair furniture pieces?
    Typically we do not do furniture repairs. We have refurbished and refinished some of our hospitality and commercial customer products when requested to do so.
