Vintage Furniture, Original Art and Made-to Order Products

Please choose carefully as we do not offer refunds, exchanges or credit notes for change of mind on any one-off items which includes vintage furniture, original art and objects and made-to-order products. Our descriptions are as detailed as possible, but if you have specific needs or criteria, please ask us any questions and we will be happy to assist.

All items are checked for any faults before being dispatched. All vintage items are restored by our expert team, however it is important to note that vintage pieces often display signs of wear, and a vintage patina that we believe contributes to the value and unique character of each piece. It is important to maintain a high standard of care and maintenance to ensure the longevity of your special find. See here for general care instructions or contact our team if you have any questions.

Should you receive an item that does not meet your expectations, please contact us at with a photo and details of the issue, and we will be in touch as soon as possible with a solution.
