Several truck delivery carriers offer additional services to help move merchandise inside your home or office, and also for un-boxing, un-crating, assembly, and trash removal.

In this event, it is your responsibility to directly pay the truck delivery carrier for any additional services.

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."

We are unable to deliver to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses.

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.

Cronotime Desk Clock

A reminder of the days before mobile phones and computers became the standard method of telling time, Pio Manzù's Cronotime Desk Clock for Alessi artfully explores its function by delivering the time in a clear and cheerful manner. Originally created in 1966, Chronotime is the result of purpose driven design that exists as both the essence of the instrument and as a toy at the same time. Interactive, the design is comprised of two equal sections of a cylinder, curved and inserted one into the other in such a way that they can be rotated to give the desk clock different shapes. The dial is in turn free to turn so that you can direct the direction in which the digits are read whatever the rotation of the clock body.
  • Originally designed in 1966 as a gift-item for Italian car manufacturer Fiat, where Manzù was a designer
  • Comprised of two equal sections of a cylinder, curved and inserted one into the other in such a way that they can be rotated to give the desk clock different shapes
  • Hour-hand and minute-hand
