Revenue from Contract with Customer [Abstract]  



We 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 us 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 our condensed consolidated financial statements but did result in enhanced presentation and disclosures.


Our revenue consists substantially of product sales. We report product sales net of discounts and recognize them at the point in time when control transfers to the customer, which generally gets transferred upon shipment.


Estimated refunds for returns and allowances are recorded using our historical return patterns, adjusting for any changes in returns policies. We record estimated refunds for net sales returns on a monthly basis as a reduction of net sales and cost of sales on the statement of operations and an increase in inventory and customers returns liability on the balance sheet. At May 5, 2019, there was a returns allowance recorded on the balance sheet in the amount $548,974, which was in accrued expenses and $164,083 associated with sales returns in merchandise inventories.


In some cases, deposits are received before we have transferred control, resulting in contract liabilities. These contract liabilities are reported as deposits on our balance sheet. As of May 5, 2019, and February 3, 2019, we had customer deposit liabilities in the amount of $1,331,493 and $1,059,957, respectively.


Upon adoption of ASC 606, we have elected the following accounting policies and practical expedients:


We recognize 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.


We exclude 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).


We do not adjust revenue for the effects of financing components if the contract has a duration of one year or less, as we believe that we will receive payment from the customer within one year of when we transfer 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 shop in 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:
