DELIVERY & SHIPPING
SHIPPING IS NOT INCLUDED WITH ANY CUSTOM ORDER, IN-STOCK FURNITURE ORDER OR HOME DECOR ITEMS.
▪️CLIENTS ARRANGE DELIVERY: JENNIFER VITALIA DESIGN IS AN ARTISTIC SERVICE WITH NO AFFILIATION WITH ANY DELIVERY COMPANY, RECEIVES NO COMPENSATION FOR REFERRALS, HAS NO CONTROL OVER PRICING, DELIVERY DATES, TIME OF DELIVERY OR DAMAGES THAT MAY OCCUR DURING TRANSIT OR DELIVERY NOR DOES IT HAVE A SHIPPING DEPARTMENT. BY ARRAGING SHIPPING, CLIENT HAS FULL CONTROL OVER WHEN, HOW AND WITH WHAT COMPANY THEY WILL RECEVIE THEIR PIECE(S). FOR THE TRANSPORT PROTECTION, THE DELIVERY COMPANY SHOULD BE LICENSED AND INSURED. CLIENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMMUNICATING WITH DELIVERY COMPANY FOR UPDATES ONCE FURNITURE IS PICKED UP FROM JVD STUDIO. ONCE DELIVERY HAS BEEN SET UP, PLEASE COMMUNICATE DETAILS TO: INFO@JVITALIA.COM. NOTE: THESE ARE AVERAGE WEIGHTS, DELIVERY COMPANIES WILL NEED THE IMAGES TO GIVE ACCURATE PRICING.
▪️COVID DELAYS: THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC HAS CREATED MANY NEW CHALLENGES. SMALL BUSINESSES GLOBALLY HAVE BEEN NEGATIVELY AFFECTED WITH SUCH DISRUPTIONS AS SUPPLY DEFICITS, STAFF SHORTAGES, AND EXPONENTIAL INCREASES IN SHIPPING COSTS. JVD IS NO EXCEPTION. FOR THIS REASON, IF NJ IS AGAIN SHUT DOWN BECAUSE OF A STATE OF EMERGENCY, THERE WILL BE A DELAY IN THE ORDERS PLACED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE, DURING AND CLOSELY AFTER THE SHUT DOWN. THIS DELAY IS A DIRECT REFLECTION OF THE SHUT DOWN, NOT OF JVD'S LACK OF EFFORT TO MEET THE CLIENT'S UNDERSTOOD PRODUCTION TIME. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN PLACING YOUR IN-STOCK ORDER. EXPECT DELAYS:
PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR EXTENSIVE DELAYS AND PRICE INCREASES CAUSED BY THE PANDEMIC. HAVING A FLEXIBLE DELIVERY DATE RANGE AND PATIENCE TENDS TO BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE. REQUESTS TO CANCEL AND REFUND DUE TO SHIPPING COSTS OR DELAYS ARE NOT HONORED. IF A CLIENT'S DELIVERY TIME EXCEEDS THE PURPOSE OF THE FURNITURE PIECE, A REQUEST TO CANCEL MAY BE APPROVED AND THE CLIENT WILL RECEIVE STORE CREDIT ONLY.
▪️SHIPPING SUGGESTIONS: THE FOLLOWING ARE SHIPPING PLATFORMS CURRENTLY BEING USED BY CLIENTS: USHIP.COM, PLYCON, J&R EXPRESS TRUCKING, UBER PACKAGE. ARRANGEMENTS FROM OTHER TRANSPORTERS ARE WELCOMED, AS IS CLIENT PICK UP. BECAUSE THESE ARE CUSTOM, ONE- OF- A- KIND PIECES THEY CANNOT BE SHIPPED VIA: USPS, UPS, FED-EX, GREYHOUND, DHL. ITEMS WILL NOT BE RELEASED TO THESE COMPANIES BECAUSE SHIPMENT MUST BE HANDLED BY A TWO-MAN HAND CARRIER ONLY. DAMAGES DURING TRANSIT MUST BE REPORTED DIRECTLY TO THE DELIVERY COMPANY. JVD CAN ASSIST, IF REQUESTED, WITH ANY SUPPORT DOCUMENTS NEEDED FOR RESOLUTION.
It could be that Jersey-born Jennifer Vitalia was an artist from birth because she can not remember a time when art was not part of her daily life and can't imagine her world if she had not pursued and nurtured her love of art. She credits much of her early training to her grandmother, who was an art teacher and spent much of her free time teaching Jennifer free-hand. This was the beginning of everything. Jennifer graduated with artistic expression in fine arts, design, photography and visual arts and moved on to become a multi-talented award winning artist.
Her work has been featured in Build Magazine, Fashion Weeks in NY, Latin Mixx Awards Showcased Artwork and The International Contemporary Masters and was a featured designer on Charish, ArtMine.com, Build, AskMen.com, Maxim.com, Aol.com, ThisIs50.com, the 2010 American Breast Cancer Society Benefit, the NYE Body Painting at Trump Plaza, The Cancer Benefit “Silhouettes & Sounds”, “Rock the Block” America's Next Top Model Art Event, and the Chelsea Art Directory. In addition Jennifer has spent some time working with G-Unit ads, Artist Makeup Academy, and Amazon Business Development. She has also worked with Steve Angelo, Ice-T, Diddy, Vida Guerra, Rafael Casal and many more.
In 2011 Jennifer created the EIA (everything is art) publication. This was a personal project- one that celebrated up and coming artists. She personally interviewed them and built a platform for them to promote and sell their artwork. As a collaboration to the magazine, she also hosted spotlight gallery shows, served as a juror for galleries looking for the next big artist, and consulted artists. She has many fond memories of interviewing some wonderful artists: Russell Simmons, David Bromstad, Ami James, Kitchen Cousins (HGTV), Gotye, Brandon Boyd, Antonio Ballatore, Justin Bua and more. In 2014, however, her work load took up much of her time and because this was a side project, she sadly closed the publication in 2014 ( with a secret hope of one day resurrecting it again).
As she was when she first entered the global world of art, Jennifer is still surrounded with her cameras, several paint brushes, colored acrylics, oils, body paints, and large canvas as she relishes in abstract style, an oasis that affords her visual forms of emotion that she believes resonate with a depth of experience from individual interpretation. Her techniques of blending degrees of colors and pressure brush strokes create visual forms that are both real and imaginative and come together in breathtaking pieces that captivate your visual senses and inspire your thoughts.
When she is not happily lost in the world of abstract painting, Jennifer also works her ideas into the art of photography, where she turns the human form into a moving canvas of expression and idea, highlighting specific colors and positioning forms to produce striking abstract and vocal messages.
In the past few years her custom design furniture pieces have been in high demand and much of her time has been dedicated to meeting the orders. She believes this is because of her keen ability to connect to her clients style and vision, creating functional art. These pieces allow her to partner with art to continue her expression and create a piece that translates to a client's distinct vision.
