Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a brochure you can send me?
We can send you a brochure that features some of our products and our website features all we have to offer.
Do you have a showroom?
Yes we have a showroom and a large warehouse set within the market town of Ledbury in Herefordshire. Not every item that we supply is out on display so we would ask that you ring or email us so that we can advise which items are available for you to view. Although if you are in the area please come along and take a look. We are open Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm. Please see our Coronavirus information page for up to date information on showroom opening.
What products are in your showroom?
The showroom has a selection of both solid mahogany and walnut antique reproduction furniture to enable you to see the quality and finish of the furniture that we supply. We also have a small selection of furniture in the various different paint finishes, as well as gold and silver leaf finishes for you to see.
Do you price match?
If you find a competitor offering identical goods for sale at a lower price just complete our Price Match Form and we will do our best to match the price. (Products must be the same quality and be sold by a current retailer who has a showroom. We are unable to price match against auctions sites such as Ebay or Amazon.)
Can you send me a wood sample?
Yes we are able to provide a wood sample for the mahogany furniture and also for the Windsor Ranges. Just give us a ring on 01531 633 333 and we will put samples in the post for you.

Can I collect my goods from you?

If you decide to use your own courier we are unable to accept responsibility for any damages that may occur once your items have left our warehouse.
Will the furniture arrive fully assembled?
Yes most of our furniture does arrive fully assembled. Beds and four poster beds arrive in pieces for ease of access and delivery and some of the larger items including desks and wardrobes arrive in several pieces.
Do you offer an assembly service?
Yes we can offer an assembly service for some of the furniture including four poster beds and knock down wardrobes. Please contact us if you require this service and we can provide you with a quote.
Do you deliver to the room of my choice?
Our free standard delivery provides safe delivery to your door but not to the room of your choice.
What happens if the furniture won’t fit though my door?
It is your responsibility to understand the dimensions of the furniture ordered and to ensure that it will fit in. It is also very important to check that there is adequate access. Most of our furniture arrives assembled in one piece with the exception of beds, four poster beds, desks and wardrobes which arrive in pieces for ease of access and delivery. We can provide details for individual pieces if required.
An item I ordered has arrived damaged, what shall I do?
All items are checked before they leave our warehouse and delivered by a specialist furniture courier so it is rare for an item to be damaged. However we would encourage you to check your items on delivery and inform us immediately if there is a problem. The item can then be returned with the courier and we will arrange a replacement as quickly as possible. If an item is signed for as unchecked we will not accept responsibility for any damage found.
What is your returns policy?
If you are unhappy with an item it can be returned with the driver at the time of delivery for a full refund less a delivery fee of £50. If the item is not returned at the time of delivery an administration and collection fee of £70 will be charged and a refund will be made for the item if returned in its original condition. Goods need to be returned undamaged and in their original packaging. IF THE ITEM HAS BEEN MADE SPECIFICALLY TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT RETURNS (as this is not our standard stock)
What is your furniture made from?
Our mahogany furniture is hand crafted from solid mahogany using traditional methods including dovetailed joints. The walnut ranges are hand crafted on a solid wood carcass with a high grade walnut veneer.
All of the timber used in the production of our furniture is sourced from managed plantations in Indonesia which are strictly controlled. It is mandatory for all exports of timber products from Indonesia to the EU to comply with SVLK certification. This means that all of our containers have a V-Legal Certificate demonstrating that the timber products are sourced from legally harvested timber. The V-Legal logo can be found on our furniture packaging. If you buy furniture without the relevant certification it could have been produced using illegally harvested timber.
Do I need to buy a special sized mattress for your beds?
No, all of our beds take standard UK mattress sizes (single, double, king or super king size). The measurements given on our product pages show the maximum exterior dimensions for each individual bed so that you can ensure the bed you have chosen fits in your room.
Standard UK mattress sizes:
Single mattress – Width 90cm x Length 190cm
Double mattress – Width 135cm x Length 190cm
King Size mattress – Width 150cm x Length 200cm
Super King mattress – Width 180cm x Length 200cm
Do you offer a bespoke service?
Yes, we can offer a bespoke service for furniture made from solid mahogany wood. We are able to quote for modifications to size and design details for all of the items shown in our existing mahogany range of furniture. Alternatively, if you cannot find what you are looking for on the website, we can also quote for furniture to be made to your requirement and design. See our bespoke section for more information. PLEASE NOTE BESPOKE ITEMS ARE NON-RETURNABLE
Are you able to offer a trade discount?
