Sure, we could offer "free shipping" & add it into the price, but we want to be transparent about the actual costs. There is no such thing as free shipping, but we offer some of the best rates in the industry for fully-assembled, ready-to-use furniture.
No Sales Tax
There is no sales tax collected on orders outside of North Carolina. Free shipping and zero sales tax can add up to huge savings!
Made in our NC Factory
Carrington Court has been making hand-made, high quality furniture in our NC factory for over 30 years. Each piece is made by skilled craftspeople, who take pride in being part of an industry that has been a North Carolina staple for 125 years.
Free Fabric & Finish Samples
To ensure that you're getting the exact color and texture you want, we offer free fabric, finish, and nail samples. And don't worry, ordering samples won't hold you up. All samples are shipped the next business day.

Average production time is 12 to 16 weeks. If the fabric is in stock, it often takes less time. Under very rare circumstances orders may take longer. If this is the case you'll be notified in advance. Most shipping within the US by FedEx Home Delivery takes from 1 to 7 days. Oversize items will be delivered by a home delivery service and may take longer depending on your location.
Shipping is free on most upholstered items anywhere in the continental United States. Large items may incur an oversize fee which will be shown in the shopping cart.
Most orders are shipped via FedEx Home Delivery. For oversize chairs or large orders we may use a common carrier or a furniture delivery service.
It is a very rare instance if your order is damaged during shipping. If your order is clearly damaged when it arrives, refuse the delivery. If you find the order is damaged after it has been delivered, Carrington Court will issue a call tag to have the chair picked up. In both instances Carrington Court will repair the chair (or replace it if it cannot be fixed) at no extra charge.
If your order is less than $1000 we charge nothing on the date of your order. All orders of $1000 or more are charged 50% up front. Remaining charges occur when your order goes into production. There is very little time between production and shipment, so charges usually happen just a few days before they ship.
No. The prices on our website are wholesale prices. However, for very large orders (dozens of chairs) we will make special considerations on a case-by-case basis.
We take MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover. You may also pay by check or money order.
Yes. Dining chair frames have a lifetime warranty. If the frame is damaged during normal use, we will repair the chair (or replace it if it cannot be fixed) for free. Fabric is warranted for one year against defective workmanship. This does not cover fading and is not valid where there is evidence of heavy soiling or abuse and where improper cleaning method has been used.
If you are not satisfied with the quality of our parsons chairs we will fix the problem or refund your money...period.
Carrington Court has been building these chairs for over 20 years. Over this time we feel that we have perfected the design and you will not find a better chair anywhere else.
In an effort to keep our prices as low as possible we do not produce a catalog. We use our web site as a catalog and believe that the site is richer in information than any catalog could possibly be.
Yes. We make sofas, love seats, wing chairs, club chairs, benches, and ottomans. If you are interested please let us know and we'll give you a price and shipping quote. We can also email you pictures.
No. We sell direct to the public over the Internet. However, feel free to visit our factory in Hickory, NC (please call for an appointment).
The chairs far exceeded my expectations...and are much nicer than anything I looked at in stores and at a far lower price.
