Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

We are happy to create custom listings for personalised furniture orders. Please contact us if your requirements differ from our listings and we will create a personalised listing for you if we are able to help.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our furniture is bubble wrapped securely prior to transportation. Our smaller items are also packaged securely prior to being posted. We often recycle our packaging for smaller items where possible.

Sizing details

All dimensions are listed in the item details. Please ensure that if you are ordering large items of furniture, including tables, that you have enough room to manoeuvre them into your home on delivery. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that items will fit through doorways.

Do you accept returns on customised items?

Our 'sourced to order' painted furniture is customised and personalised. Consequently we are UNABLE to offer returns on these items. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that they are happy with their order and personal colour choices via etsy conversations prior to shipping. We also expect that the customer has read the item details in full and familiarised themselves with our shop policies, returns policy and FAQ's following their purchase.

Do you use couriers for furniture shipping?

All of our furniture items are shipped via recognised couriers. Generally, the courier is alone so please ensure you have manpower on delivery to offer assistance with larger items. We do not ship furniture abroad.
Small items of furniture are shipped via Parcelforce 48.
Each item of furniture is checked and inspected prior to courier collection and bubble wrapped securely. In the unlikely event of damages during transit, please inform us immediately so that we are able to resolve any issues with the courier company quickly.

What is your returns policy?

As stated previously, customised items are non-refundable as they are sourced and customised to customer requirements.
For all other items, we accept returns within 14 days in line with distance selling regulations. We expect that you will contact us via ETSY convo as soon as possible to inform us that you wish to return your item. Items should be returned to us in the condition they were sent in. Customers will be responsible for return shipping costs.
In the unlikely event that your items are damaged during delivery, please inform us immediately. In this instance, please forward photograph evidence of damaged items and inerior and exterior packaging via ETSY convo. We require this evidence to proceed with a claim.

What are the expected delivery times and which postal Postal services do you use?

Each listing will specify estimated delivery times. Items that are ready to dispatch will normally be shipped within 1 business day.
Most of our small parcels are shipped via hermes courier as this is the most cost effective method of postage for our customers.
All of our parcels via hermes are tracked.
Jewellery cannot be couriered via Hermes. Consequently, our jewellery is shipped via Royal Mail tracked and should arrive within 48hours.
Once parcels leave us, we cannot be held responsible for any goods lost in transit. We will provide details of tracking numbers for customers to investigate their parcels with postal companies and make a claim.
If your parcel has not arrived within 7 days, please notify us immediately.

Information required for courier companies.

Please submit your email address and mobile telephone number via Etsy convo for the courier company for furniture deliveries as they will contact you to arrange a convenient time for delivery and keep you updated of any progress.

Customer Feedback

Customer feedback is gratefully received. We work hard to process your orders efficiently and work to very high standards. We appreciate it very much when our customers take the time to leave positive reviews on our ETSY and Facebook page. It offers other customers confidence in the buying process and also informs us that you have received and are happy with your order and buying experience. Please take the time to leave feedback- it really helps our business and is so appreciated.

What is the process for personalised furniture orders and why do they take 2-3 weeks?

When we receive your personalised order, we aim to ensure that your items are sourced and restored to your exact requirements.
Sourcing may involve spending time bidding at auctions or hours at a flea market.
We ensure that tables and chairs are solid and secure.
Items are cleaned and painted in at least three coats of paint, prior to waxing. Our pine tables and chair seats are sanded to remove old layers of varnish and wax to reveal the wood grain and restore their natural beauty.
Items are securely wrapped prior to delivery.
Times between dispatch and delivery may be a number of days as couriers only deliver to particular areas of the UK on certain days.
