Our furniture is easy to assemble, just follow these few simple guidelines to make sure building it is easy.

Do the reading: It might sound obvious but always read the instructions before assembling furniture. All our instructions are written in English, with clear diagrams and a step-by-step guide to assembling your new furniture.

Make space: The best place to build your item is where you plan to position it, but make sure there's plenty of space to move around any large parts.

Ask for help: Assembling larger furniture, such as dining tables, is usually much easier with two people. So save on stress and ask a friend to give you a hand. Take a look at the product information to see how many people you'll need for assembly.
Stability: Our furniture is built to last but be realistic about the size and weight of items you want to store. This is especially important when buying TV stands and bookshelves – simply check the weight recommendations for each product.

Caring for your furniture

Wooden furniture: Wooden furniture with a hard lacquer or waxy finish can simply be dusted with a dry, soft cloth.

Natural light affects the colour of both wood and real wood finish furniture. Regularly moving or turning furniture that sits in direct sunlight will help reduce discolouration and ageing. You should also avoid placing wooden furniture near fires, radiators and air conditioners to prevent warping.

Whatever material your furniture is made from, we recommend that you don't lift and drag it. An extra pair of hands will make it easier for you, as well as reduce any risk of weakening its joints.

Fast, friendly and flexible delivery

We can help make buying furniture less stressful. See our home delivery information for further details.

There's no need to be worried if you change your mind. All our furniture is covered by our 30-day money-back guarantee so you can make sure you're completely happy with your purchase.
