FAQ

Is it possible to protect your furniture against stains?
Yes, you can choose to treat fabric furniture with Protection (from Protexx) Textile Protector. Dirt and spilled liquids often quickly penetrate the fabric fibre and can be challenging to remove. With a Protection by Protexx treatment, the fabric is impregnated, preventing this and making it easier to clean. This treatment comes with a 5-year warranty, which means that any common stains*, if necessary, will be professionally cleaned at your home.
*For stains caused by human bodily fluids, other mammals, food and drinks.

My furniture has been treated with Protection (from Protexx), but I still have a stain on my furniture. What can I do?
In this case, please contact our partner Oranje Concepts within 48 hours at +31(0)88 111 0550 or customercare@oranjeservicecloud.com, or make a direct report here. Afterward, Oranje Concepts will get in touch with you as soon as possible, and if necessary, they will come to your home to clean the stain.

I've chosen Protection (from Protexx) for my furniture, what are the costs?
The price of Protection (from Protexx) depends on the size of the furniture and will be calculated in the shopping cart. For example, a dining chair costs €25 per seat, while a sofa or armchair costs €50 per seat.

Will the upholstery on your sofas remain so sleek? 
Just like with a new pair of jeans, the fabric on the sofas may stretch slightly with use. Some creasing is unavoidable. Additionally, the padding of the sofa may lose some volume; this is also a natural property of the sofa. You can minimize this by regularly plumping the cushions.

I've found a beautiful fabric. If I order a piece of furniture with that upholstery, will it look exactly like the photo?
The colour of a fabric can appear slightly different on a screen than in reality. If you have doubts, we recommend visiting the store to view the fabric in person or ordering a fabric sample.

I want to request fabric samples. How can I do this? 
You can request up to 5 free fabric samples to review at home. Click here to order your samples.

How can I best maintain the fabric of my new piece of furniture?
For advice on maintaining your FEST furniture, we recommend reading our Care Guide. It provides the right tips to keep your fabric looking beautiful for as long as possible.

Can I have my FEST furniture reupholstered by you?
We do not offer reupholstering services or loose covers for our furniture.

Which sofas are modular, and how do they work?
Almost all our sofas are modular, except for the Regular, Natural, Huf, and Sinclair sofas. Our modular sofas come with connectors between the elements. These connectors can be easily attached to each other, securing the elements together. This gives you the freedom to customise the sofa configuration to meet your needs and living space. It's also possible to place the elements separately. If you need assistance in assembling your ideal sofa, we're here to help. You can visit one of our stores or schedule an interior advice session on our website.

I have my eye on a FEST table; can the length be customised?
Unfortunately, the table dimensions are fixed. The length cannot be adjusted. We offer the table in the available sizes as listed on our website.

I want to purchase a FEST piece of furniture, but how do I know if it will fit through my front door?

Is a home accessory always in stock in FEST shops and can I reserve an item? 
There is always a chance that an item is out of stock. To ensure an item is in stock before you come, you can always call the shop near you. Please note that we (unfortunately) cannot reserve items for you.

The item I want to buy is sold out in the shop, will it come back in stock?

What does full-service delivery mean?
In Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, our furniture is delivered full-service (in the absence of a lift, up to the second floor). This means that we will not leave until your new purchase is installed and in the location you want. We neatly take all packaging material with us. Please note: check in advance whether your order will fit through your door, lift and/or stairwell. If in doubt, consult The Perfect Fit Guide, where we detail how to measure your door frame and living space. If the furniture does not fit through your door, lift and/or stairwell, ask us to bring a moving lift. Please note: this involves additional costs.

What does door-to-door delivery mean?
In European countries other than the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, we deliver to your front door. Unlike full-service delivery, this does not include lifting and assembling your order. This means that you must provide sufficient hands and/or a moving lift to get your new addition into place. Please note: check in advance whether your order will fit through your door, lift and/or stairwell. If you are in doubt, consult The Perfect Fit Guide, in which we describe in detail how to measure your door frame and living space.

I ordered made-to-order furniture. What is the further order process?
After you have placed the order, you will receive an email within 1-2 weeks with the expected delivery time of the furniture to our warehouse. Once the furniture has arrived at the warehouse, we will send you the final invoice with a payment link.

After payment of the final invoice, you will receive an email with which you can plan a suitable delivery time. If you need a moving lift you can notify us by email whilst scheduling the delivery. You will receive a specific time slot the evening before delivery. On the delivery day itself, our logistics partner will send you a text message in the morning containing a link with which you can follow the delivery drivers live.

The delivery people install the furniture in the designated area in the house. All you have to do is enjoy your new sofa. 

Can my order also be picked up in the FEST store or can I pick it up at your warehouse?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to have your order delivered to the store or to collect it yourself from the warehouse.

I don't need my furniture(s) yet, can my order be delivered later?
That's no problem. As soon as you receive the message that the order has arrived at the warehouse, the order can remain there for 4 weeks free of charge. After this, the storage costs are € 35 per week. You can pay these costs directly when scheduling delivery.

Can I give my old sofa to the delivery people?
Unfortunately, we do not offer this service. 

I need a moving lift, can you arrange this for me?
We can indeed arrange this for you for deliveries in the Netherlands and Belgium. You can let us know while scheduling the delivery by responding to the email. Please note that there are costs involved. Unfortunately, we do not offer this service for deliveries outside the Netherlands and Belgium.

How can I pay in your webshop?

In our webshop, you can choose to pay in full immediately, with your credit card or via iDEAL, Bancontact (Belgium), Paypal, SOFORT or Giropay (Germany), or in three instalments, via in3.

How does paying in instalments work?

If you choose to pay via in3 at checkout, the system will perform a quick data check. You then make your first instalment payment immediately, after which your order is dispatched. Within 30 days, you make the second payment and within 60 days, the third. The amount you pay is always one third of the total amount. In3 charges 0% interest and works without BKR registration, because you're sent a handy reminder with an iDEAL payment link for the second and third instalment, with no direct debit taking place. You can find more information and all terms and conditions on the in3 website.

How can I pay in your stores?

In FEST stores, you can pay by debit or credit card. We do not accept cash. Payment in instalments is not possible in our stores.

Once this payment has been made, our logistics partner will deliver the furniture to you.

You can order in-stock furniture in our stores. You must then pay the full amount immediately, including delivery costs and the costs for any Protexx order.
