Gingko now sells exclusively online at www.gingkofurniture.com.
After over 10 great years of operating our Gingko showrooms in San Francisco, Mountain View, Palo Alto and Portland, OR, we have modernized our business model and are selling exclusively online. Here at www.gingkofurniture.com you will find the same beautiful hand-crafted, solid walnut furniture that was so successful in our showrooms. We still do maintain a local warehouse and Bay Area customers are welcome to pick up their online purchases--just selection this option when you place your order.
After I make my purchase when will I get my furniture?
Leadtimes are based on availability of the items. If all of the pieces you have ordered are in stock, the items will be shipped out (if you purchased online) within one week. In-store purchases can be scheduled for Bay Area delivery by Gingko’s service personnel. Online purchases will be shipped within one week of order and you will receive tracking information via email to let you know when your items will be delivered. Typically delivery takes between 5-10 working days depending on the delivery address.
Out of stock items and special orders will take longer to deliver/ship out. We attempt to clearly indicate the extended leadtime for any items that are not in stock when you purchase your order. Special order items typically require 6-10 weeks for delivery. You will be informed of the expected leadtime when your order is processed.
