Revenue from Contract with Customer [Abstract]  


The Company implemented ASU 2015-04, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, “ASC 606”), in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 using modified retrospective method, which required the company to apply the new guidance retrospectively to revenue transactions completed on or after the effective date. Adopting this new standard had no material financial impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements but did result in enhanced presentation and disclosures.

The Company’s revenue consists substantially of product sales. The Company reports product sales net of discounts and recognizes them at the point in time when control transfers to the customer, which occurs upon shipment is confirmed.

Estimated refunds for returns and allowances are recorded using our historical return patterns, adjusting for any changes in returns policies. The Company records estimated refunds for net sales returns on a monthly basis as a reduction of net sales and cost of sales on the condensed consolidated statement of operations and an increase in inventory and customers returns liability on the condensed consolidated balance sheet. As of May 3, 2020, and February 2, 2020 there was a returns allowance recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet in the amount $1,885,464 and $2,177,715 respectively, which was included in accrued expenses and $347,039 and $442,390, respectively, associated with sales returns included in merchandise inventories.

In some cases, deposits are received before the Company transfers control, resulting in contract liabilities. These contract liabilities are reported as deposits on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet. As of May 3, 2020, and February 2, 2020, the Company recorded under customer deposit liabilities the amount of $4,738,974and $1,653,597 respectively. During the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2020 and May 5, 2019, the Company recognized approximately $1,653,597 and $1,331,493, respectively, related to our customer deposits.

Upon adoption of ASC 606, the Company has elected the following accounting policies and practical expedients:

The Company recognizes shipping and handling expense as fulfillment activities (rather than as a promised good or service) when the activities are performed even if those activities are performed after the control of the good has been transferred. Accordingly, we record the expenses for shipping and handling activities at the same time we recognize revenue.

The Company excludes from the measurement of the transaction price all taxes imposed on and concurrent with a specific revenue-producing transaction and collected by the entity from a customer, including sales, use, excise, value-added, and franchise taxes (collectively referred to as sales taxes).

The Company does not adjust revenue for the effects of any financing components if the contract has a duration of one year or less, as the Company receives payment from the customer within one year from when it transferred control of the related goods.

The Company offers its products through an inventory lean omni-channel platform that provides a seamless and meaningful experience to its customers in showrooms and through the internet. The other channel predominantly represents sales through the use of pop-up shops that typically average ten days at a time and are staffed with associates trained to demonstrate and sell our product. The following represents sales disaggregated by channel:
