About ReforestDesign

Sales 447
On Etsy since 2018

Through good design, I want to preserve earth's forests on which all life depends and reduce global furniture waste.

I have been designing & making furniture for 8 years and have not been able to stop challenging the current furniture industry. Every design is focused on comfort, quality, longevity, ease of repair, creative expression, production ethics, and preserving our natural world. Each value has shaped my furniture into what it is today.

Frequently asked questions

DOES THE FURNITURE COME ASSEMBLED?

It does not, but it is easy to assemble! I spent many years designing the furniture for quick and easy assembly. I have selected hardware with metal thread inserts so you could put together and take apart each piece countless times without compromising the structure. Included are paper-free assembly instructions. Assembly is a great way to really get to know your furniture.

COULD THIS FURNITURE BE USED OUTSIDE?

This furniture is designed for indoor use only.

IS THERE A WARRANTY ON THE FURNITURE?

There is a lifetime warranty on all furniture frames for structural or manufacturing defects. Regular wear and tear is not included.

A lifetime repair service is available on all damaged or broken parts and scratched surfaces.

This includes:

Replaceable Parts: All hardware is designed for assembly and diss-assembly without compromising the structure of the furniture. Damaged and broken parts could be re-purchased.

Refinishing: If your piece is in good condition but scratched up you could send in your parts for re-sanding and refinishing with a natural oil-wax polish.

IS THERE MORE INFORMATION ON FORESTS OR BAMBOO?

Yes! I have only provided a glimpse of information on pressing deforestation issues, and insights on bamboo. Visit 'onetreeplanted.org' for more information on forests and 'bamboobotanicals.ca' for information on bamboo.

WHERE DO YOU SHIP?

Currently shipping to Canada and USA. For International inquires please Etsy message or e-mail: ewelina@reforestdesign.com

SHIPPING COURIERS

I currently use FedEx and Canada Post. 'Extra Large' custom furniture is quoted for LTL shipping with various couriers- additional fees apply.

FEDEX CUSTOMS & TAX PROCESS

*See 'Shop Policy' for more details.

If your package was shipped using Fedex they MAY contact you (phone &/or e-mail) to clear the package at the border with your SSN. This is their policy for high value packages. If so, this process allows for ONLY 10 days holding before the package is shipped back. This means you have 10 days to submit the required information. If your package is NOT under their high value window, they will deliver straight to your door.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

For bamboo care, use warm water and a soft cloth. Avoid soap to prevent natural oils from wearing. Feel free to apply natural oil coats onto surface over time (to freshen up!).

WHAT OIL COULD I USE?

Over time the natural oil will wear - but with proper care it can last a very long time! You probably won't have to refinish for 2+ years, depending on use. I recommend the oil that is currently on the furniture, it is called OSMO. You could find it here:

Canada - https://osmo-store.com/
USA - https://osmocolorusa.com/

I use the following:
Natural - 3031 Osmo Polyx Oil Matte
Colours - (contact me)

If it is too difficult to source, I would recommend mineral oil, furniture beeswax oil, or hemp oil. They all have very little to no scent, and are easily applied with a cloth. Other oil alternatives could work too, just keep in mind some are very heavy on the fumes and have specific application processes. Contact me for suggestions.

OIL APPLICATION

Make sure the table is clean and dry before application. If you're feeling ambitious and would like to get rid of any imperfections, you could always give it a light sand before oil application (I recommend renting an orbital sander, it'll take all of 2 minutes!). As the oil is natural, you do not need any toxic stripping agents or hazardous gear. 150 grit sandpaper and a basic dust mask/face cloth will work well.
