No doubt Seva is a great store that carries some great furniture off the beaten track. However, I wish I could say our experience shopping at Seva was as quality as the furniture we bought.
Jeff is a very nice guy, but our experience of working with him was that he was really dialed into what *he* is passionate about and the fashions of the furniture industry, but we didn't think he was as skilled when it came to understand our tastes and hone into what *we* wanted.
We bought some great pieces and are happy with them, but the delivery times were appalling. It took over six months to get a sofa and chairs and a that we table waited for 3 months for had to be re-ordered. I don't fault Seva for the delays – obviously they are at the mercy of their suppliers, but I do fault them on a) not setting clearer expectations up-front on the order-times and b) not being remorseful or apologetic when things did get delayed.
In summary, great stuff, would have liked to buy more from them, but I simply don't have the patience to wait for it.
