After passing the inspection, your order will be shipped to you free of charge by forwarding agent.

We will inform you about the current status of your order by e-mail and on this page. Once your order has been shipped, we will send you a tracking link.

The packages in your order are numbered. Please assemble the furniture according to the numbering and start with the first package. Assemble from left to right.

2. Why are the compartments of my furniture not at the same height?

If the compartments are not at the same height, it is possible that the stringers have been twisted. Please check the gap dimensions as well as the arrangement of the compartments.

Assembly service

No, the assembly takes place independently of the delivery by the shipping company. As a rule, your order will be assembled within a few days of delivery.

That is of course possible. Just send us an email with your order number and we will send you a cost quote.

If you have booked an installation, we will assign a partner fitter from our network who will arrange an appointment with you for the assembly.

4. Do the assembly technician take all the packing away?

Please note that the service does not include the taking away of the packaging by the assembly technician. However, this can be agreed individually with the assembler on site.


1. What happens after my complaint?

If your complaint is about transport damage, we will try to have the damaged parts remade as quickly as possible. If you would like to keep the parts, we are also happy to offer a discount. If errors have occurred during production, we will clarify the case with our producers.

2. How long does it take before I receive a response?

As a rule, you will receive an initial response within 5 working days.

3. I am only missing small parts, what can I do?

We keep many small parts in stock in our office and can ship them at short notice. Please feel free to use the form or give us a call.

4. Can I return my order?

As we do not have any stock items and each piece of furniture is made individually for the customer, we unfortunately cannot take back custom-made furniture. We ask for your understanding.
