THE SPEC'd LIST :: Inspiration and Conversation
SUMMER | AUGUST 2021 Issue
Is it in stock? How fast can I get it?
Our industry is definitely feeling the pinch of the supply chain backlog. Everyone (even Ikea!) has encountered container ships stuck in ports waiting to be unloaded or a shortage of raw materials, and it can be even more painful when you add the time it takes for freight to travel overseas.
At SPEC'd we have strategically partnered with manufacturers that are established in North America. We understand that parts and pieces still come from overseas, but the core of the manufacturing process is here and we don't have to wait for ships to float the goods.
Below are notes on each brand partner and their standard lead times... as always, lead times are subject to change - please contact us for specifics.

The slim profile of the steel base paired with the soft touch glass is sexy and you know it, so clap your hands.
Manufacturing in Chatsworth, GA
Chilewich partners with weaving mills a few miles away from their production facility in Chatsworth, GA - this proximity means we typically the component fabric in-stock and ready to back.
Chilewich is made-to-order, which means we may have Boucle - Grey weave in stock, but we still need to back it with Bio-felt or Vinyl for the floors, or Trilam for the walls.
It's the end of Summer and that means one final road trip before Fall settles into Winter.
Road trips evoke the path less traveled and the freedom to make a random pitstop, or use the 'avoid highways' feature on the GPS. Better yet, test your inner compass and use a paper map.
