Private House Company Terms and Conditions
The items shown on the website are carefully selected.
Each item description will mention the size, colour and fabric variation where necessary.
Products shown on the website and displayed on the showroom floor may not always be available, so please contact the showroom to check availability.
Many of our products are made from wood. Wood is a natural, organic and porous material, with each piece having its own unique character –no two pieces will be the same. Wood will expand and contract with seasonal humidity changes. Maintaining consistent humidity levels will help to minimize movement in the wood and prevent warping and cracking. It is important to note that airconditioning draws moisture out of the wood and can cause cracking.
It is important to follow care instructions provided on the website for all products, especially wood.
