Options you can choose are (non standard options have additional charges.)
Why are there charges for changing to non standard options?
Generally options cost money. For e.g. when we make a chair in standard black frame, it can be mass produced and in large quantity. To make a frame in white, the raw material has to be change in the mold making machine and that takes time and also white or colored material cost more than standard material. That's why most factories do not allow changes unless you have a minimum quantity like few hundred pieces in one production run. In our case, we allow users the flexibility to choose option but the cost, the time to make, the time to coordinate a special order all adds up and the cost are there. We charge you at our cost and we don't make extra money by ordering custom make for you. It's an added service we provide to give you more options and not to make more money as the cost are higher. Below are some exampless of options you can make and additional costs that are incurred (not exhaustive):
1). FRAME: black/white. Yes, we have white frame chairs. Many optons!
Standard is black frame. Most chairs can be requested in white frames @$30-$50
2). MATERIAL: Fabric or synthetic leather.
Standard is premium Korean fabric that is stain, water, dust resistant. Every chair can be requested to be in premium Korean synthetic leather @$30-$50.
What is premium Korean synthetic leather? Premium Korean synthetic leather feel like premium natural leather but has the added advantage of being maintenance free (real leather needs to be oiled regularly or it will crack.) Premium Korean synthetic leather doesn't peel off easily like cheaper China synthetic leather. The Korean synthetic leather is of such high quality and real leather chair is unnecessary as they need regular maintenance and cheap real leather are not as comfortable.
Who chooses synthetic leather? Those who need their chairs to be easy to maintain. Those who are very sensitive to dust as synthetic leather has smooth surface and more dust resistant than fabric. Those whose skin is very sensitive to texture.
Who chooses fabric? As our fabric is water, stain and dust resistant, the difference is not really huge. But if you're a fan of leather, then make the change. If not, our fabric has very fine pores (unlike cheap fabric that is rough and too porous and trap dust easily.) and are almost as dust resistant, easy to maintain and soft to feel as well. So if cost is a big factor, there is no need to change. Use the budget for other options like color etc. instead.
3). COLORS fabric/synthetic leathers. For some models, you can choose from 5 colors. Other models, as many as 20 colors. (We do have some stock of some colors for some models. Stock can move very fast and keep changing from day to day so do check what we have if you need ex-stock.) Standard is black color. For some models, color can be changed at no charge. For most models, colors can be changed @$30-$50 depending on the models.
4). ARMS: Fixed arms/adjustable arms.
Some models come with standard fixed arms, some models adjustable arms. Most chairs with fixed arms can be changed to adjustable arms @$30-$50 depending on the model.
5). WHEELS: Wheels/no wheels/lockable wheels.
Some models come with wheels, some models are without wheels. For models that do not have wheels, generally the height cannot be adjusted. If you want no wheels and yet height adjustable, we have 2 options, wheels can be changed to studs (no extra charge). Or you can change the wheels to lockable wheels. Our lockable wheels are auto-locking, meaning you don't need to manually bend down to lock and unlock. When the user is of a certain weight sits on the chair, the wheel has a built-in mechanism that automatically locks. You can change from standard wheels to auto-locking wheels @$10 per wheel i.e. total $50.
7). LEG SIZE: Large leg (for those who want to lean back a lot and prevent toppling over), small leg (for those with limited space). Small models come with small legs and big models come with big legs. If the model has a big leg, you can request to change to a small leg @$30-$50 depending on the model.
8). LEG TYPE: Plastic leg/nylon leg/aluminium leg/steel leg (for overweight)
9). REMOVABLE ARMS: With arms/without arms (for tables with drawers)
10). LEGREST: With legrest (for children, shorter people)
11). HEIGHT: Higher hydraulic (for taller people or those with high tables even bar counter). Shorter hydraulic for short people.
