About TheOrangeChairStudio

Sales 695
On Etsy since 2011

Nightlights, Switch Plates, Lampshades... We find inspiration in the little things.

First, introductions are in order! We, John (Derrick) Towers and myself, Blenda Risteen, are a brother and sister team. We co-own and operate our business, The Orange Chair Studio, in Rockland, Maine - the beautiful and inspiring coastal town we call home.

One of my favorite "chores" is searching for new materials for my creations. I especially love flipping through stacks of the colorful sheets of artisan quality decorative papers we use for our night lights and switch plates. I like to imagine how the different thicknesses, patterns, and textures will translate into three-dimensional pieces and what they'll look like with light shining through them, etc. Once home, these newly found treasures continue to spark creativity, as the bright, cheerful, and usually messy, projects and paper scraps help "decorate" my happily-chaotic mess I call a studio!

I hope the joy I have in creating each item shows in the final product, and brings with it a little spark of creativity and whimsy to it's new home.

Items ordered from Maine will be charged 5.5% sales tax.

All receipts/invoices will be sent to you by email. If you would like to receive a printed copy with your shipment, please include your request when you make your purchase!
Please be sure your mailing address is updated on Etsy and/or Paypal as that is what we'll use for your shipping address!

We prefer to ship through the USPS, which usually takes domestic packages 3-5 business days (some larger items may take 2-8), and international packages an average of 6-10 business days, for delivery.

If you need an order rushed or have specific shipping requests, such as a preferred carrier other than the USPS, please let us know before making your purchase so we can make arrangements and adjust your invoice accordingly!

We are happy to ship to any location. However, it is nearly impossible to provide accurate shipping estimates for all of our items. So, if you wish to place an order and can't see your shipping destination as an option, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to work out the details with you!!

Also, please consider the following:
* Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility.
* Knowing the prohibited and restricted items to your country is also your responsibility as the Buyer. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying.
* These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight or shipping company or when you pick the item up, do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.
*We fill out custom forms accurately and truthfully: we claim full retail value on our customs forms.
