Custom construction and sizes are available by request, but are subject to acceptance by KF.

KF also has the capabilities to review and help create products that are not based on our standard product offerings, custom quotations and lead-times can be provide by the KF product team. Drawings for Approval (DFA) may be requested on custom items after the order is received at KF. If a DFA is requested prior the receipt of an order and deposit, a $500 net charge will apply. DFAs are included with a custom order at no charge if the change is not easily communicated in writing on a sales order and a visual representation of the product is required. The KF product team reserves the right to decline a DFA request if it is deemed unnecessary to fabricate the product. DFAs are not available for standard KF products. Custom quoted prices are valid for 60 days unless otherwise negotiated. All custom orders are not cancellable nor returnable.
Finish samples for selection are available for customers from each showroom's finish sample lending library and through KF's finish sample lending library. A showroom can request sample support by requesting KF to furnish finish sample(s) for selection to customers. For KF to accommodate the request, a complete Lending Library Finish Sample(s) for Selection Showroom Request form must be submitted to a KF Account Manager by a showroom sales representative. All finish samples for selection are the property of KF and must be returned within 30 days. If samples are not returned, lost or damaged, a $125 charge per sample will be added to the order.

Oak Street, Inglewood, California 90302. Most KF products are available in a custom finish by request, but are subject to acceptance by KF. Samples for custom finishes must be supplied at the time of order placement for custom finish development. A Sample for Approval will be sent to the customer in 3-4 weeks from the receipt of customer's finish sample. While every effort is made to accurately reproduce a finish, finishes may vary in tone and character, no guarantee can be made of an exact match. Custom finishes require an upcharge and delays in approval of samples will increase overall lead-time. Discontinued KF finishes are not part of KF's current finish offering, thus they are categorized as custom finishes. A discontinued KF finish can be requested, but is subject to acceptance by KF.

Woven | Handcrafted Wallcoverings
Most of our woven wallcoverings are made of natural fibers, and many are handcrafted. Natural variations are to be expected. Colors may vary between dye lots or within the same dye lot itself. Because cuttings of current stock areavailable upon request, we cannot assume responsibility for texture or dye lot variations on orders shipped without a CFA request. Woven natural fiber wallcoverings do not have a side match and in some instances each panel is visible when installed. Lead times for woven wallcoverings can range from in stock and ready to ship to up to fourteen weeks. All woven wallcoverings are F.O.B. Inglewood, California.
Handcrafted wallcoverings are made to order and require a 50% deposit and a working sample to initiate the order. The balance due is required prior to shipping. Delivery is approximately 4-6 weeks and are F.O.B. Cornelius, Oregon. Since these wallcoverings are made to order it is extremely important that the required amount is ordered correctly because any needed additional wallcovering that would be necessary to complete the installation, will not match in most cases. We recommend that a professional wallcovering installer measure to determine the correct amount of wallcovering to order.
CFAs are available upon request, we cannot assume responsibility for texture or dye lot variations on orders shipped without a CFA request. There is a two-yard minimum for all textile orders. All textile orders are F.O.B. Inglewood, California.
