COVID-19, CONTACTLESS DELIVERY, SHOWROOM
What steps are featureDECO taking to prevent the spread of the virus?
Whilst we have yet to be impacted by the outbreak of Covid-19, we wish to assure all of our customers that we are taking the threat it poses to customers, staff and the wider population very seriously.
This begins with prevention, by upholding the highest standards of hygiene, in accordance with NHS Advice.
We are operating a contactless delivery service whereby the goods can be left by the door and the customer is given the opportunity to sign for the goods or the driver can sign on behalf of the customer at safe distance and this provides the same protection as your signature. We may experience delays due to limited transport network available due to COVID therefore, we kindly ask for your patience.
Our showroom is closed. We will do everything we can to accommodate your requirements over the phone and via email.
Our intention is to continue to provide our customers with the excellent service they have come to expect, however, we advise you to be patient as we are working on limited staff numbers in the office and our carriers are also under pressure during this difficult period.
We still hold excellent stocks of most items and are responding to sales enquiries rapidly. If any aspect of our business significantly changes, we will notify you alongside providing regular updates.
Should a member of staff, or anyone they live with, exhibit symptoms of the virus, we will be insisting they follow government guidance on self-isolation.

GENERAL CARE & MAINTENANCE
Can furniture be left outside all year round?
All of our rattan garden furniture range is manufactured to be left outside all year round in any weather conditions, however, we still highly advise to cover the set during rainy and winter season to help protect and prolong them.
We recommend that any fabrics be kept in dry storage when not in use. Cushions cannot be left outdoors during rainy or winter season as it is not classed as the material used is not classified as waterproof.
Can cushions be washed?
All of our piped cushion covers are zipped and therefore can be easily removed for machine washing.
Do products fade in sunlight?
All of our rattan, rope and aluminium products are UV protected to ensure they don’t fade in sunlight, resulting in years of enjoyment. Natural materials will weather naturally to form a beautiful patina. Care must be taken with cushions as these are UV resistant and can fade under prolonged periods.
How many different types of materials do you offer?
We have a range of materials such as rattan, rope, aluminium and some furniture is also available in a combination of materials.
What is the warranty on the furniture?
The warranty on each set varies according to the type of furniture and is shown on the each product's page (MORE INFORMATION). This varies from 2 to 5 years. As we have been supplying rattan outdoor furniture since 2005, we are confident that all furniture is long-lasting due to the quality materials we use and the 1000's of customers we have supplied.
How do I care for my furniture?
All of our furniture requires minimal maintenance in the event it gets dirty and can be easily cleaned off using a sponge or power washer.
Is furniture fully assembled?
All of our furniture is fully assembled apart from the table bases; these are easily assembled in approx 5 minutes. Please read the instructions carefully and follow the procedure. It is important to carry out a light assembly before tightening the screws. Cushions are store under the furniture units.
Is the glass safe?
Yes, all glass on all products is 5mm toughened safety glass. To prevent accidental damage, do not place very hot or very cold items on the glass. Avoid impact with sharp objects. We advise customers to use a placemat to avoid scratches and please do drag tableware across the surface as porcelain, ceramic and metal are harder than glass as a material and will cause scratches.
If I wish to re-order to match an existing set, will the furniture match?
Please note, as we are improving the products yearly, the products from every batch container or year may vary in design and features, such as weave, wood, cushion fabrics, etc from products sold in previous years. Each sets are organically handmade produced overseas. Please contact us first prior to placing an order to confirm if the product is suitable. The accessories shown on images such as decorative scatter cushions, glasses, plates, etc are not included in the product and are only shown for illustration purposes. Please click here for important care information in relation to the furniture.
Are the accessories in the images included?
Accessories such as vases, scatter cushions, plates, parasols, covers, clips, etc are not included unless you have placed it on the order.
How to cover garden furniture?
All furniture covers we supply are generic and they may be some overhang. We advise to pitch the cover so it forms a roof shape to allow the water to run off rather than form pockets. If a pocket of water is created, please do not pull the cover to remove the water as this will tear the furniture. Tears will not be covered by warranty. Instead, please use a bucket or something similar to remove water in this way.
Although a majority of deliveries are working according to schedule, we may experience delays due to limited transport network available due to COVID therefore, we kindly ask for your patience.
