With a Protection (by Protexx) treatment, a lot of stains will be easier to get rid of. In addition, with Protection (by Protexx) you get a five-year warranty on their stain removal service for the most common stains.*
When we deliver your furniture, you can treat it right away in your home. You’ll receive a stain spray and a certificate. Please keep the invoice and the certificate in a safe place, as these prove your furniture is under warranty.
Prices depend on furniture size and will be calculated at checkout. Please note that Protection (from Protexx) is available for all fabrics, except for leather.

*Find more info on Protection (from Protexx) in our Care Guide. Will the fabric of my sofa stay this sleek? Just like a pair of jeans, all fabric will stretch when in use. Creases and wrinkles are part of the product features. Furthermore, furniture filling will always lose some volume. You can avoid this as much as possible be regularly padding the cushions. I have seen an image of beautiful fabric/leather. If I order furniture in that upholstery, will I get the same colour as on the photo? A fabric can look slightly different in real life than it does on screen. When in doubt, we recommend you to come and see the fabric in real life at one of our stores or order a sample. Please note: we use natural unpainted leather, so you might receive a slightly different colour than the swatch or showroom model. I would like to order fabric samples. What do I need to do? You can order up to a maximum of 5 free samples to find out which one matches your style the most. Click here to start your order. How to maintain my furniture the best way possible? From your bamboo table to your leather sofa and from anti-discolouration to anti-pitting tips: in our Care Guide you'll find all the advice on how to keep your FEST furniture pretty for as long as possible. Find it here.
When will my order arrive? Lead-times depend on the product you wish to order. Please check the product description of the item you would like to order for more information. Timing will start after we have received your (down)payment. For furniture, we will ask you to pay for the complete order before we can schedule your delivery. After we have processed your payment, our delivery partner will contact you to set an appointment as soon as your order is ready for delivery.
This is why your order takes a bit longer. Obviously we would like to deliver your order as soon as possible. But unfortunately, it’s taking a bit longer than expected. This could mean 2 weeks, but it could also run up to 6 weeks. We’d like to explain how this happened.
It’s partly due to the summer closure of the factories and partly due to the enormous demand for furniture and home décor in recent months. Because of this, our factories have to wait longer for materials such as wood and HR foam, and a queue has formed to make the products. Again, this creates a snowball effect: due to the increase in products, more transport is needed. The transport companies are therefore busier than usual, which makes transport to the distribution centers take a little longer than normal.

What does full-service delivery mean? We offer full-service delivery on furniture in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. This means that we deliver your new furniture inside your home and will not leave until it is fully assembled in the room of your choice. We will take all packaging material with us when we leave. Important: please check if the ordered furniture will fit your door, lift and/or staircase. If it will not fit, you can ask our delivery partner to bring a moving lift. Additional rental costs may vary per order. What does doorstep delivery mean? In European countries other than The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany we also deliver right to your doorstep, but unlike full-service delivery, carrying the order inside and assembling it are not included. This means you’ll have to arrange to have some helping hands and/or a moving lift yourself, to get your new furniture in place. I need my furniture quickly. Is it possible to speed up the production process? We understand you are eager to receive your new furniture. Our factories put time and effort into the production of your furniture. We can not make this process go faster. If you quickly need furniture, we recommend choosing from stock.
