At SympleDesign, we sell 20th century vintage and design furniture. We sell mostly vintage furniture and lighting, meaning pieces generally older than 30 years of age. Occasionally we stock newer items (such as new-old-stock, re-editions), they are always indicated as such.
Vintage items have been often used for decades, and although we carefully curate and when necessary restore items to their original state, they will without exception show normal signs and traces of use.
Prices are quoted in Swiss Francs (CHF), where necessary we will convert to either Euro, US Dollar using the daily mid-rate.
Prices exclude shipping and any other costs related to transport and importation. These will be carried by buyer. Return shipping cost are on account of buyer.
