How to Order
Online: Order online through our website. We accept all major credit cards including American Express, along with Paypal and Google Pay. Your credit card details will be securely encrypted so that no one can read your card information, including us. If any item you order is not in stock, we will always inform you of a likely delivery time before processing any payment and will be able to process just a deposit rather than the full amount in order to reserve the item for you for delivery later on.

We accept Mastercard, Visa, Visa Debit and American Express. Please quote the product code and finish required when you place your order.

For all items held in stock we require full payment, including any delivery charge, when you place your order. We try to keep most items in stock, although some larger pieces of furniture may not always be immediately available.
For all items not held in stock we require a 50% deposit of the full amount, including any delivery charge, when you place your order. The remaining 50% must be paid when we inform you that your goods are ready for delivery. No item will be delivered until full payment has been received. We will inform you when confirming your order and before processing payment if an item is not held in stock.

Where we hold an item in stock, we will deliver the item to you within 30 days of receiving your payment and normally within 14 days.
Although we hold a limited stock of some furniture, many of our reproduction pieces are made and shipped to order on our regular containers from Asia. Where this is the case we will give you an estimate for delivery of your furniture when you order and before processing any payment. Assuming you are happy with the delivery time, we will take a 50% deposit on confirmation of your order, with the balance due before delivery.
Note that delivery charges quoted on this Web site apply to the majority of mainland UK addresses only, and that there may be an additional charge for deliveries to offshore addresses or to more remote parts of the mainland (such as the north of Scotland and Cornwall). We will always inform you of any additional delivery charges before processing any payment.
We can also arrange deliveries outside of the UK. Please contact us and we will be happy to provide a quote for shipping charges.
*Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient access to deliver any products you have ordered. Our delivery team will make every reasonable effort to deliver your furniture into a room you specify but cannot be held responsible if a particular piece will not fit, or for damage caused due to insufficient access.

Money Back Guarantee
Kayu offers a returns policy that removes any risk on your part when ordering unseen. If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, simply inform us within 14 working days of the item being delivered and we will arrange for it to be picked up at our expense. We will then either replace it for you or provide a full refund excluding any delivery charge. All that we ask is that the item is returned in an unused condition and in its original packaging. See our terms and conditions for more details.
