We ship items that conform to the samples we display at wholesale trade shows and on our website; however, variations are a normal part of the production process.

Claims for damage to products that do not arise from defects in material or workmanship are the responsibility of the carrier. If the shipment arrives with visible exterior damage (crushed box, broken crate, moisture, etc.) note the damage in writing on the carrier’s delivery receipt before you sign for the shipment and release the delivery driver. A claim for shipping damages will not be accepted by Made Goods unless the damages are noted on the carrier’s delivery receipt.

Returned items must be in their original condition and packaging, and the customer shall prepay and be liable for all charges in connected with the shipping of returned goods. Additionally we strongly suggest insuring all return shipments as credit for authorized returns will not be issued if product arrives damaged due to poor packaging. All credits for client-elected returns will be credit-on-account. Please note that all returns, regardless of reason, must be pre-approved by Made Goods. To begin the Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) process, please contact our customer service department.
At Made Goods we strive to keep our customers informed with the latest information regarding products on order.

This credit can be used toward any future purchase at your request. Any other refund is at the discretion of Made Goods management.

CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT YOUR PRODUCTS?
Quality Time Spent:
In a world of disposable everything, where trends come and go in a flash, Made Goods stands apart. We take time gathering inspiration from the world around us, then apply the craft and skill necessary to get every detail just right. This is what elevates products into pieces made to last and what makes Made Goods unique.
We use expressive shells, long strand rattans, richly tanned leathers, individually cast and crafted faux finishes, hand formed ceramic, glass and finely finished metals.
It starts with workshop innovation guided by customer feedback. Through multiple rounds of sampling we refine proportions, exact material placement and achieve optimum coloration. Every product is then field tested for up to a year before being offered.
Each Made Goods item is uniquely designed with a partner workshop. This allows us to incorporate expertise in time-honored techniques including hand laying, hand finishing, weaving, mouth glassblowing and hand glazing. Our partnerships with craftsmen are more like friendships, some of which go back more than 20 years.
We don’t offer “knock-down” pieces because we don’t cutcorners. The last thing we want is for you to spend hours onassembly or dealing with wobbles. That isn’t quality.
Our mirrors boast thick, finished inner and outer profiles. Drawer shapes, leg shapes, pattern placement and stretchers are impeccably integrated into overall design. Handwoven pieces feature tight weaves and delicate pattern changes created by skilled artisans. Drawers integrate manufactured bottom mount glides and finished interiors for lasting quality. All free-floating pieces havefully finished backs.
Our images don’t lie. While lighting and background color add appeal, we don’t digitally edit defects out. Our images are beautiful because the pieces are even more so. Variation in handmade products is a celebrated highlight of our process.
While we strive to present the most accurate portrayal of all Made Goods products, please note that there will be differences in color and/or finish between any representation of the products (printed and online) and their actual appearance. This is due to several factors. The natural materials and handcrafting involved in creating our one-of-a-kind collection means that we are selecting one item for photography. The process of photographing our collections and printing or presenting the images inherently causes variation due to lighting, the color of the wall, the type of paper, or the calibration of your screen.
CAN I PURCHASE A SAMPLE SWATCH?
Over 250 finish swatches are available for purchase including most furniture and mirror finishes. Individual swatches are stocked and available for $4.50 each plus shipping. Sample kits of our most popular finishes are also available. Please see our comprehensive Material Guide for available materials or shop our PURCHASABLE SWATCHES category online.
We are pleased to offer complimentary swatches to select partners. Please contact your sales representative or account manager to learn more.
Note: Swatches are representative samples only. Due to the natural materials used, variations in dye lots/shell/stone/bone/wood, etc. are to be expected.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOMIZATION?
Every home has a unique character that makes it special, but can also make it challenging to find the right pieces. We are pleased to offer customization of most of our furniture, mirrors and chandeliers. Our innovative workshop model allows us to offer alternative sizes and, in many cases, finishes to meet your customers’ needs. Whether you are looking to make a piece shorter, taller, wider, deeper, or a different color, let us work with our craftsmen to create it for you. Contact your sales representative or account manager to get started. Private label production options and full custom production are available. We will never reproduce items from other vendors.
Note: There is no minimum order amount for custom pieces. Estimated lead time of production starts at 18 weeks following approval of quote and shop drawing.
HOW DO INTERCHANGEABLE PRODUCTS WORK?
We offer a large range of customizable products. Customers can choose from various materials and finishes to fit their design needs.
From dining tables to consoles to accent tables, build the perfect piece by mixing and matching our top options in handcrafted finishes with our distinctive base designs. We offer an ever-expanding collection of beds, where the frame and headboard can be customized to create the ultimate sleep environment.
