Guarantees/ Warranty/ Returns
Our Guarantees to you
We only use top quality materials and source these as locally as we can, our Pine comes from Queensland when we are able to source it, otherwise from our neighbours in New Zealand. We leave some natural 'imperfections' like knots in the wood to speak to the character of the product.
Wood grain and variation:
The majority of our products are hand-crafted from solid Pine. As no two trees are alike, variation in grain, colour and finish will occur.
These variations are acceptable throughout the cabinetmaking/furniture and carpentry industry.
We cannot accept replacement or refund based on variation in grain, colour or finish.
- Customers interested in a perfectly consistent colour and grain should consider coloured lacquer or some of the synthetic materials used by other companies.
In addition to being constructed of natural materials our products are hand finished.
With the process of hand-finishing minor imperfections may be present and these only add to the character of the product.
These imperfections may include variations in the size of your bed - these variations do not alter the size of the mattress that fits the bed.
These are considered normal, and expected for hand finished, solid timber furniture and as such are not grounds for replacement or refund
Underside of Products
We focus our attention on the most important parts of the furniture, which are the areas that are visible during the normal use of the item.
The undersides of our beds and areas were hardware is placed on the inside are finished to a safe and neat standard, but not to the same standard as the rest of the product. By choosing to concentrate on the visible areas of the product, we are able to offer our beautiful furniture at reasonable prices for the amount of hours, material and workmanship that goes into each one.
