We do not require an adult signature for deliveries, but please note that the decision to leave your package without a signature is at the discretion of the delivery person. If you want an item left at your doorstep, the best thing to do is leave a note on your door asking the driver to leave your package with "No Signature Required."

Luminaire also offers delivery to Alaska and Hawaii for an additional fee. The delivery fee to these States will automatically be applied during Checkout.

Wood Crating Packaging Service

At Luminaire, larger or more fragile items, such as certain chairs and lighting, are protected in wood crating.

The wood crating at the top of the item's box will be secured with screws, instead of nails, to make access to the box and removal of the item easier.

Upon receiving a crated item, use a Phillips-head ("crosshead") screwdriver to unscrew and remove the wood from the top of the box. Then, simply open the box and pull the item out.

Batonga Basket

Traditional hand weaving techniques are used to create an intricate geometric pattern in As’Art’s Batonga Basket. Named for the Tonga people who inhabit the remote Binga district of Northern Zimbabwe, the Batonga Basket represents a rich cultural heritage that is kept alive generation after generation. Utilizing locally harvested materials such as wild grasses, small vines, and palm leaves dyed with tree bark, local artisans work for up to two weeks to weave the distinct herringbone patterned basket. The result of the hand-weaving is a stunning tactile quality that imbues the object with warmth and texture making it a perfect decorative accessory for the interior, whether placed on the tabletop as a centerpiece or arranged on the wall to create a sculptural installation. The Batonga Basket is part of As’Art’s collection of sustainable craft-based objects made in developing countries. The project aims to raise the standard of living for local makers by providing them with a higher-than-average income, good working conditions, and the ability to continue the traditions of their culture. The Batonga Basket is a striking display of history, technique, and responsibility.
