Options are good. Here are your 3 shipping options:

Inside Delivery (recommended): $59.00

Inside delivery is a cost effective way to have large, heavy items delivered inside your home or office when you just do not want to be bothered by moving and lifting. We recommend inside delivery because this item is either extremely large, extremely heavy or ships in multiple boxes. When your order reaches the local station in your area, you will be contacted to schedule a delivery appointment (with a 4 hour window). The driver will place the item inside your home and do all of the heavy lifting for you!

Curbside Delivery: $68.44

We use curbside service anytime an item is too large or too fragile to ship with Ups or FedEx. The shipping companies we use may not be household names like and FedEx, but they are committed to providing you with an equally awesome experience. With curbside service, your item will be left at the curb, just inside your driveway or placed next to your front door. When your order arrives to the station in your area, you will be contacted to schedule a delivery day and time. An appointment will be made prior to delivery and a signature will be required. Please note that this service does not include product placement inside your home or office, so be prepared. If you want to save a little money on shipping and have friends to help you move and unpack, this is your best option.

White Glove Delivery: $99.00

White Glove Delivery is our most comprehensive delivery service option and can be added to your order for an additional $99 per item (plus the 5% we are required to charge by Gus*). When your furniture reaches the local station in your area, the delivery agent will call the number you provided to us when you ordered to schedule a four hour delivery appointment. The driver will carefully bring the item inside and place it in your room of choice (two flights of stairs max), unpack, perform light assembly if required (up to 30 minutes without tools), and remove any debris. Keep in mind that the driver will take away the packaging, but if you have any doubts ask them to keep the box. Returns and exchanges with Smart Furniture are easy as long as you hang on to the original packaging.

Danforth Chair
by Gus Modern

At A Glance:
Danforth Chair A classic wingback chair with a haircut; a modern reinterpretation of your grandmother's favorite chair; the freshest take on an old design that you've seen in a long time. However you want to describe the Danforth Chair, we'll agree with you - as long as you like it, because we sure do. The Danforth Chair features a foam seat cushion for comfort, slender cutaway arms to maximize space, and a sharp-looking continuous steel base.

What's To Like:

  • We don't know which style cue we like better: the cutaway arms (stellar idea) or the continuous tubular steel base (brilliant). Together, they give this modern chair the curb appeal of a million-dollar home.
  • We live in smaller spaces than we used to (except for those of us who live in bigger spaces, of course). But for modern small-space dwellers and folks who just want to open up their square footage alike, this chair's narrow arms and small footprint hold great attraction.
  • Danforth is traditionally modern without being predictable. That's an achievement in itself.

What's Not to Like:

  • Price is, as always, a consideration. It's expensive, but if you love the look you'll find that it's less of a problem.
  • Speaking of the look ... we think that it looks mature, modern, and fresh - all at the same time. You may find that it's not what you're looking for.

The Bottom Line:
The Danforth Chair by Gus Modern is a semi-formal chair that has one foot in 1915 and one foot in the here and now. It won't distract from your other decor, and it'll leave space for your other furnishings.

  • Overall: 39.5" h x 28.5" w x 34" d

  • Foam upholstery

  • Hardwood interior frame is constructed with FSC certified wood in support of responsible forest management
  • 9 gauge no-sag sinuous spring system

  • Stress tested joints
  • Non-marking plastic leveler feet
