GUARANTEE OF QUALITY
Village Little Interiors takes pride in the artisanal craftsmanship of our furniture, which is exclusively handmade in our workshop situated in Western Australia. We are committed to upholding the traditional woodworking methods, and each piece is meticulously made from solid wood. The use of such materials may result in variations in wood characteristics, such as knots and cracks, which are inherent to the natural characteristics of the wood and hence are not considered defects but rather add to the authenticity and uniqueness of the piece.
Our team of experts inspects each item with great care before shipment. However, in the event that you find any defects in the furniture, we request that you notify us immediately, before signing the acceptance of delivery. This will enable us to take prompt action and ensure that you are satisfied with your purchase. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of handmade furniture, and your satisfaction is our top priority.
It is important to note that real wood is susceptible to expansion and contraction due to environmental factors and relative humidity. As a result of temperature changes, solid wood movement may occasionally result in the appearance of cracks within furniture. Although this is a rare occurrence, we offer a six-month window for customers to file a claim for wood cracking.
To prevent issues with solid wood furniture, it must be stored in an environment that is climate-controlled. Over time, wood furniture may also crack if exposed to direct sunlight. Our company prides itself on delivering quality craftsmanship and timeless wooden furniture that is built to last when properly cared for and used for its intended purpose.
We stand behind our work and strive to provide our customers with high-quality products.
The vast majority of our products are bespoke and, as such, we do not accept returns. Our furniture is deemed as non-cancelable, non-returnable, and non-refundable, save for instances of faulty workmanship or manufacturing defects. In the event of any merchandise being damaged, we will e to replace it with identical merchandise, where feasible.
Our focus is on the primary sections of the furniture, which are the areas that are visible during daily use. The undersides of our beds and areas where hardware is located on the inside are finished to a safe and neat standard. By directing our attention to the visible sections of the product, we are better placed to offer our customers the most competitive pricing.
Our company is rooted in our appreciation and acceptance of the handcrafting process. Due to the limited and high-demand nature of our workshops list each month we do not tolerate negative behavior from our customers. We maintain a standard of respect for all customers and expect the same in return. It is to be noted that Village Little Interiors reserves the right to cancel and refund any order if we believe that the customer's values or behaviour towards us does not align with our business principles. Village Little Interiors also reserves the right to refuse the placement of orders from such customers in the future.
