5 Questions to Ask Custom Furniture Makers

Scouring the internet for a specific furniture item can be exhausting and frustrating, especially when you are struggling to find that one special piece. If all of your efforts have proven futile, you are most likely considering handmade furniture.

Purchasing custom designed furniture can be immensely exciting and rewarding, as you will be investing in a one-of-a-kind item that is suited to your unique taste, and built to last. Because custom furniture is of a superior quality to commercial items, you will be saving money from having to make repeat purchases in the future.

Handmade furniture is also significantly more eco-friendly and ethical than mass-produced pieces. In light of global warming, many independent retailers, such as Mojo Boutique, have adopted sustainable practices throughout their manufacturing processes.

Knowing that you are buying an item which has been responsibly crafted will ensure you are making a guilt-free purchase, benefitting both you and the livelihood of the craftspeople who made it. We value our talented makers for all they do, and ensure that we work closely alongside them so that everyone is happy.

What Should You Ask Your Furniture Maker?

The last thing you want, when having custom furniture made, is to receive an item that does not meet your expectations. Many bespoke specialists will ask their client various questions before they begin working on your piece to ensure everyone is on the same page.

It is also important to have your own questions prepared, before you invest in custom furniture. Be sure to ask your designer these 5 questions to ensure clear and thorough communication throughout the project, so that you receive your dream piece.

  1. "What materials do you use, and how do you source them?"

    Before you pay for a bespoke furniture service, you should always double check the resources they use during production. A legitimate furniture brand should always uphold 100% transparency about their crafting processes.

    We have nothing to hide at Mojo Boutique, and proudly exhibit our sustainable and ethical methods of production. We create all of our products using materials that are either recycled/upcycled or organic and of the highest quality, to ensure our customers receive heirloom quality furniture.

    An Important Note: Make sure that the craftsperson you hired uses materials free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and any other harmful toxins, as these can pollute your home's environment over time and pose various health threats.

  2. "Will there be any added fees?"

    A custom designed piece can be pricey. It is important to know that there won't be any unwanted surprises after your item is complete.

    Always make sure you read the fine print of any agreement signed between yourself and the furniture makers, and always ask if there are any hidden fees to be certain that you are not being misled, and that you don't blow your budget.

  3. "What is the warranty of my handmade furniture?"

    It is always the designer's responsibility to guarantee their customers with repair services once an item has been completed. Ensuring your item has a warranty will guarantee that you won't have to pay for repairs. Be sure to follow up your question with "how long is the warranty?" so that you are aware of when the entitlement expires.

  4. "What is your company's returns and refunds policy?"

    Receiving custom furniture that does not meet your expectations can be upsetting, especially when you have invested time and money into having the item made. Always double check that the furniture brand you are purchasing from has a reasonable returns and refunds policy, so that you aren't stuck with an unwanted and undesirable product.

    Our boutique strictly abides by a "satisfied or money back" motto. We don't want our customers to feel stuck with an item they no longer desire. You can read all about our return policy and refund policy on our site.

  5. "Does your service include delivery and instalment?"

    Transporting and installing furniture can be tricky and expensive. It is standard courtesy for a furniture company to offer a complimentary delivery service, that is free of charge.

    At Mojo Boutique, we value our customers. Buying from our boutique will ensure that you receive friendly and satisfactory service. As a thank you for your purchase, we offer free shipping on all of our pieces!
