FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO YOU SELL DIRECT?
We sell our products through reputable retail stores throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Turkey. We think that furniture is best experienced in three dimensions rather than two. It just seems more practical to "go check it out" at the store if you can. It is really nice to be able to "test drive" the furniture.
WHERE CAN I SEE ALL OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
None of our retailers carry our entire line of products. We work with each of our retail accounts to individually develop an assortment for them and they in turn, work with us to translate that look onto our furniture in their stores for you, the consumer. So, don't be discouraged if you can't find our entire line in any one place.
DO YOU SELL TO FURNITURE DISCOUNTERS IN NORTH CAROLINA?
We do not, furniture is a difficult purchase and many things could go wrong. We want to sell to retailers who can provide our customers with prompt and professional service, before and after the sale. We do have a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Factory Outlet in Hickory, NC that handles all of our discontinued products, nearly perfect furniture and some returns.
WHAT TYPES OF FABRICS DO YOU CARRY?
We have 100% cotton velvets, denims, washed cotton prints, mohairs, leather, tapestries, chenilles, linens, matelasses and many apparel-inspired fabrics.
CAN YOU SEND ME SOME SWATCHES OF YOUR FABRICS?
The best way to handle this is to select your fabric and ask your retailer to order the fabric swatch for you. We would be happy to mail it out to you from the order taken by the retailer. This way, the retailer can provide all the appropriate numbers and monitor your order. We think you will get better service this way.
DO YOU DO COM OR CUSTOM PIECES?
We do offer a COM option through our retail accounts that are capable of special ordering. However, we do NOT do any type of custom work. None of our frames or slipcovers are modifiable.
DO YOU HAVE EIGHT-WAY HAND TIED SPRINGS?
After much research, we have chosen to use steel serpentine springs. These are performance-proven arched springs. They provide incredible comfort and durability.
CAN YOU GIVE ME A PRICE ON...?
The only pricing we give out is a suggested retail. Clearly the best way to obtain true pricing is to work directly with your retailer. After you have selected the fabric for your specific silhouette, then you can get a more accurate price. Our pricing for slipcovered items is a combination of the base price with slipcover price. The price range that we quote includes all grades of fabrics and or leathers. This gives you a broad spectrum of the many fabrics that we have. Our fabrics are graded 1 through 18. Our leathers are graded A through F.
CAN I ORDER A REPLACEMENT SLIPCOVER FOR A MITCHELL GOLD + BOB WILLIAMS PRODUCT?
Absolutely, most retailers where you purchased your Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furniture may stock some replacement slipcovers. The easiest way to accomplish this is to visit your retailer where the original purchase was made. Make certain that you have your warranty card with all the stock codes and appropriate numbers to make the ordering process easier. You can select another fabric from your retailer's Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams fabric assortment. The retailer can provide you with a price and then the special order can be handled through them. This process may take from 6 to 8 weeks.
CAN I ORDER A SLIPCOVER FOR A DISCONTINUED MITCHELL GOLD + BOB WILLIAMS PRODUCT?
Most definitely, we archive all discontinued patterns just for this purpose. The easiest way to accomplish this is to visit your retailer where the original purchase was made. Make certain that you have your warranty card with all the stock codes and appropriate numbers to make the ordering process easier. You can select another fabric from your retailer's Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams fabric assortment. The retailer can provide you with a price and then the special order can be handled through them. This process may take from 6 to 12 weeks.
DO YOU WORK WITH INTERIOR DESIGNERS?
We do not sell directly to interior designers. We direct designers to the nearest retailers in their area so they may receive personalized service in assisting their clients.
HOW TO PUT ON A SLIPCOVER?
Gently pull relaxed fitting slipcover down over the top of the piece, carefully working it from top to bottom; front to back. It might be necessary to tuck here and there to achieve the look you want. Place the seat cushion on the back edge (notice the front edge is rounded). Now start to put the cushion cover on the front with the zipper toward the back. Fold loose back pillows or throw pillows in half before stuffing into pillow covers, and then work corners of pillows into corners of pillow covers. There's a certain relaxed feel and look to your slipcover. Most large creases and wrinkles will fall out in a few days.
DO YOU MAKE SLEEP SOFAS?
Many Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofas, loveseats, and chairs are available as sleep sofas. Best of all, sitting on any Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sleep sofa is a dream come true. Sleep on our sofa bed and you won't feel that bar across your back. There's extra padding in our mattress just for your head. And when you get up, you won't find any cold, protruding mechanism by your leg! Say good-bye to lumpy, hard-to-sit-on sleep sofas...forever. Sleeper mechanisms are tubular steel construction with a woven deck attached by helical springs and supported by cross wires. The sidebars do not come above the mattress, which eases maneuverability on and off the bed. Rocker chair mechanisms are made with heavy gauge steel and legs double riveted for long life. High density molded caps protect your floors. We use a premium 5 1/2" innerspring mattress. It is completely covered with a quilted damask padding that is hypoallergenic. Sleep tight.
