3: Our Furniture
3.1 All our furniture is made from quality natural wood and accordingly appearances may vary. The majority of our items are handcrafted, and as a consequence, all sizes are offered as a guide only. It is virtually impossible to accurately portray the actual colour of natural wood product in a picture, due to differing screen resolutions, and natural variations from batch to batch. With regards to our wood furniture, we endeavour to give the best portrayal of colour, but we cannot accept colour or shade differences as evidence of defects. As a general rule, dark items look lighter in reality, and light items look darker in reality. A close match is more likely if two or more items are purchased at the same time because they will come from the same batch. If you wish to return an item because of a shade difference or any other reason, we are willing to offer a refund as long as our returns terms and conditions are met. However, collection costs will be at the customer’s expense, and the returned item must be re-sellable as ‘brand new’.
3.2 Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When you are purchasing our furniture you are buying handmade furniture where varying degrees of distressing is generally applied. This is very much intended and makes each piece totally individual as desired by the craftsmen. We sell only genuine rustic designs with varying degrees of distressing
from piece to piece; this may involve wood splits, wood filling, knots, purpose distress/scratch marks, antiquing etc etc. Certain degrees of filler will be used on oak furniture this is common and very much part of the manufacturing process. Please note that our Indian items are usually of a very rustic nature and a heavy distressing is usually applied, this may appear as a dulling or rubbing effect to the waxed finish, knotty and grainy woods are used, this is as intended by the supplier.
3.3 The majority of our products are sold fully assembled, however on occasions certain pieces will need minimal assembly, this has been deemed fit to protect the item in carriage. All items needing assembly will be specified on the website and instructions for assembly will be provided.
3.4 Made to order items are made to the specification listed on the product page. The measurements can be altered on most items, but please ask for details as the price will change by approximately 30-50%. The Mottisfont range can be ordered in a natural wax finish or painted finish. If a colour is not selected when ordering any products in the painted Mottisfont furniture then it will be made in their standard cream paint finish. Made to order furniture (in all ranges) takes 6 to 8 weeks to finish but usually under 6 weeks. Sometimes it can take up to 10 weeks to finish the items during busier times. Please contact us if you need the item sooner than times advertised and we can quote you exact lead time.
