The style and originality of our furniture comes from the natural materials used. Any indentations, blocks and fillings are part and parcel of reclaimed wood. The inaccuracies in both the materials and workmanship add to its character. We neither try to hide our restorations, nor select timber or hides without inclusions. Glass items (e.g. glass topped tables) also contain 'inclusions' giving character, texture and colour.
Real wood may acclimatise in your home within the first year. If you experience this contact us at customer services. You can also learn how to care for your reclaimed teak items on our dedicated page here.

Our reclaimed teak items are sourced and expertly crafted in Indonesia and shipped to the UK. Due to the goods leaving Surabaya in Java and heading through Singapore and on to Felixstowe we cannot be held responsible for unforeseen delays in the arrival of goods. We will however do our best to solve any problems these delays might cause.
If goods have been made for you, i.e. not in stock, then the order is exempt from the cancellation provision under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000.
Therefore a cancellation fee of 20% is applicable to all made-to-order/made-to-measure products. In respect of these products our usual refund policy does not apply, and products cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty.*
*A made-to-order/made-to-measure product is a sofa or teak which is not currently in stock and/or part of clearance stock. It is manufactured specifically for you. None of the above conditions affect your statutory rights when goods are faulty, or not as described.
All prices are inclusive of VAT. The price for the goods (including any applicable delivery charges) are listed in your order confirmation.

You can also check your delivery note or view your order online. We do dispatch items at different times depending on stock levels but we will always try and confirm with you which items you should be expecting with any one delivery. Also it is possible that different items on your order may be dispatched from different locations and so arrive at different times. Again we will always try and keep you informed of any such occurrence.
If your order has not arrived within the expected delivery time period call Customer Services on 020 8450 5078 (option 2).
If you believe an item is damaged or missing firstly check your delivery note and discuss with the delivery personnel. Our delivery personnel are instructed to not leave the premises until the issue is logged with customer services. We will try and resolve the issue at this point. If we are unable to do so we reserve the right to repair the item on-site or remove the item for repair and redeliver to your convenience at a later stage.
It is imperative that you report any damage or order discrepancy to Raft as soon as possible. If you report damage to an item once the delivery drivers have left or after the fact it is at our discretion as to whether to charge you for any repairs.
We do our utmost to ensure your order process and delivery procedures are followed as smoothly as possible but please consider that from time to time human errors do occur. Your understanding is appreciated that we will do everything we can to rectify the situation as soon as possible.
Also circumstances can arise which are beyond our control which may delay or cancel your delivery. In this instance we will not be liable for any consequential losses you experience but will organise a redelivery free of charge at a time convenient to you.
For any questions at all regarding orders and deliveries please call Customer Services on 020 8450 5078 (option 2).
It is your responsibility to inform us of any changes to your contact details or delivery addresses.
15 year guarantee on memory foam mattresses.

Our guarantees do not apply to items taken outside the UK mainland.
The following excludes goods made to order which carry a 20% cancellation fee.
If you have never been in a RAFT store or at one of our exhibitions but have only bought online; and if for any reason (other than damage or a fault) you are not happy with your order you can cancel up until 7 working days after delivery. Providing the item(s) are unused, are still in a completely saleable condition and in their original packaging, we will issue a refund less the delivery charge and a collection fee. To arrange a return please contact customer services.
Please note on reclaimed teak items we will not accept returns or exchange items on a like for like basis due to the character of wood or what we deem reclaimed teak markings.
For reasons of hygiene we cannot refund or exchange used mattresses or pillows unless they're faulty.
Alternatively, you may return items to our warehouse or Cricklewood store by prior arrangement only.
Refunds will be issued by the customer services department to the card which was used to place the order once we have confirmed receipt of the item (s).
