FAQs

    Do your products require assembly?

    All Timshel Design + Toby Chairs products are shipped already assembled, so you can start to enjoy your purchase as soon as it arrives.

    What do I do if I've damaged my table / chairs? Will you help fix it?

    It's important to us that you love our furniture. By buying one of our pieces, you've taken a chance and invested in us. So in return we will do whatever we can to help you out; if the dog chews the coffee table, we won't replace the table (we're not that nice) but call us and we will do what we can do to fix it at the lowest possible price.

    If your mate who doesn't appreciate a good coaster has left his coffee mug on your dining table and there's a horrible mark - phone us. We can talk you through what to do to fix it yourself. Or if you're desperate and we're in you area, we might even be able to swing by with some sandpaper and oil and show you how it's done. If you just don't like the look of your piece when you get it home, I'm really sorry but we can't afford to exchange it for free - we're a startup after all - but if you can pay the return delivery or wait until one of our drivers is heading your way well be happy to exchange it or give you your money back. Just call! We are nice reasonable people and we'll help if we can.

    How do I order a Timshel Design product?

    Order your product straight from our website and we will email to confirm receipt and begin working on your furniture.

    On average how long does an order take to complete?

    Depending on whether your order is for a stock item, or a custom built item, we say 2 – 8 weeks for an order to start and be completed. 80% of the time we deliver within a 4 week period. Busy times of the year require up to 8 weeks. If you need to know how long the wait is currently please contact us. If you require an urgent quick delivery please speak to a member of our team.

    How can I best look after my furniture?

    In order to keep your Oak furniture in the very best condition, and to give it the longest life possible we recommend that you give it an annual top up of teak oil. You can easily do this using a cloth and spray of teak oil which are readily available in all good DIY shops. You can do this more frequently if you think the finish is starting to look a little dull.

    Can I store my furniture outside?

    We advise all customers not to keep the furniture outside at anytime. The oak and steel both do not like water environments. The oak will naturally absorb any water, causing the wood to crack, warp an expand.  The steel with have a bad reaction to any water and will likely rust. All our materials are treated before delivered but there is always a chance of long term natural change.

    Will the steel rust?

    If kept in a damp environment, over time the steel will begin to rust. We advise all our customers to keep the furniture in a dry environment.

    Will my oak top be waterproof?

    We use Treatex Hardwax Oil to protect our oak tops.
