      We don’t have entire collections that ship fully assembled, but some of our individual items will ship fully assembled. You can view the assembly instructions for each item from the page. Simply scroll down until you see the dimensions and dimensional drawings. Just below this, to the left side, you’ll see an Additional Info header and below that you will see Assembly Information. You can click the words Assembly Information and you’ll be able to view the assembly instructions as well as see any assembly videos or tips we have.

      We aren’t to assemble any items that require it in our facility due to limited production capacity, unfortunately.
