Important Information
Product Descriptions
Every effort is made to ensure that the products you view online correspond as closely as possible
to the samples we display in our store or in catalogues. Due to the nature of our handmade
products slight variations can occur. No responsibility can be accepted for these variations. It is
always important to bear in mind that computer browsers may present colours slightly differently.
REPRESENTATION OF PRODUCTS
Whilst we take every effort to represent our products accurately they are all handmade so may
vary slightly in appearance.
Our wood
It is important to note that the shade and grain of the wood will vary from piece to piece. This is
because no two planks of wood are the same. We believe this is one of the positive qualities of
wood and helps to make each product unique!
Due to the nature of the timber we use and the handmade quality of the furniture, each piece is
likely to be unique in appearance, colour and finish. Dimensions may be +/- 4 CM from the sizes
given online, in-store or in our brochures: to avoid disappointment on the day, please bear this in
mind when measuring your space and ordering furniture.
For the long term maintenance of any solid wood product we recommend that there are no direct
sources of heat very close by. Wood is a natural product and whilst METHOD STUDIO only use
timber that is well seasoned and dried, movement can occur in the home. Changing temperatures
can cause the wood to shrink or expand. Placing a piece of furniture up against a radiator will
exaggerate this and may cause movement and in some cases slight cracking.
On a daily basis the furniture will not require much maintenance apart from dry dusting. We
recommend that once a month you apply good quality beeswax or oil depending on your finish to
keep the furniture well nourished and safeguard against shrinkage. Rub in and buff to a shine.
METHOD STUDIO advise you to avoid using any spray based cleaning products and abrasive
products. If in doubt about the finish of your product please contact the store before applying any
products.
Fabric/Leather
Shade may vary slightly from those shown in samples and in photographic images on our website.
Colours
The reproduction of colours on our website is as accurate as photographic and publishing
processes will allow. Please note there may be variations in colours dependent on the calibration
and settings of individual screens.
Dimensions
All dimensions are approximate. Due to the fact that our products are handmade sizes may vary
slightly
Industrial Steel Work
Whilst every effort has been taken to remove grease and oil residue from steel work (including
sealing with beeswax) care should still be taken with light coloured clothing as some marking is
possible. If this occurs then firm rubbing / polishing with a lint free cloth on the affected area is
recommended.
Cancellation
Our current range of furniture are made to order products, therefore we are afraid that these are
none returnable items. .
We are unable to offer a refund or exchange on personalized, made to measure bespoke pieces
unless they are deemed to have a manufacturing fault.
Guarantee
All furniture is guaranteed for one year, on condition that each item is cared for in accordance with
the advice contained on the METHOD STUDIO website and product care guide. Where appropriate
METHOD STUDIO will repair the item free of charge during this period, or we will replace the piece
at our discretion if we believe this is appropriate.
Should an item arrive faulty, we will automatically offer either a replacement or a full refund. We
reserve the right to repair an item rather than replace it where necessary. Refunds will be issued
to the card that was used to place the order once the goods have been received back into our
warehouse. If you paid 50% deposit online for your furniture and the further balance upon
confirmation of your delivery, your refund may be in two seperate installments.
We are afraid that we will not be able to refund products that have been damaged due to wear and
tear
The wood used in our METHOD STUDIO furniture products often has a rustic look making each
item slightly different in colour, apperance, measurements and finish. We will not exchange items
on a 'like for like' basis purely on the grounds of the character of the wood used.
Our Trading policy does not affect your statutory rights. METHOD STUDIO is based in the UK and
trades under UK law and regulations.
