Loll furniture is mostly shipped flat packed to reduce the size of the box and thus the shipping costs. Some pieces are shipped knocked down (partially assembled) and a few products are shipped fully assembled. Check on the Product Page or contact Customer Service if you have any questions or concerns. We have gone to great lengths to make our furniture assembly very simple and even enjoyable and fulfilling. Your shipment will include easy-to-follow instructions and a tool to assemble the furniture. A Pro Tool Kit is available for purchase when you checkout and we recommend it if you have a larger multi-piece order. These are the same tools our furniture craftspeople use in the shop.
