In your letter dated July 27, 2006, on behalf of Euromarket Designs Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise under consideration is an Abaca Ottoman in an hourglass figure made of woven natural abaca over a metal frame. The item is primarily used as a nightstand or end table but can also be used as an ottoman or stool. You have submitted a photograph of the ottoman with your request.

The applicable subheading for the ottoman will be 9403.80.3030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Other furniture and parts thereof: Furniture of other materials, including cane, osier, bamboo or similar materials: Of cane, osier, bamboo or similar materials, Other: Household.” The rate of duty will be Free.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent HTSUS and the accompanying duty rates are provided on World Wide Web at http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Lawrence Mushinske at 646-733-3036.
