Beauty in Imperfection

The Victoria is a celebration of the timber in all it’s natural glory. Splits and knots are embraced for their character and beauty.  Butterfly ties, skillfully crafted by our team, stabilise the splits.

Ordering and Delivery

How to Order

For Workspace pieces, rather than ordering on-line, we would prefer to chat through your order with you so that we can talk through the timber choices, dimensions and any other specific requirements you may have.  Please call us on 01488 608020.  Alternatively e-mail sales@benchmarkfurniture.com or better still, visit us at our showroom and while you are here, we would be delighted to show you around the workshop.

Lead Times

All our pieces are made to order and crafted to the highest quality. We don't cut corners or compromise our standards so please be aware that your order may take 8-10 weeks. 

Authenticity

Each piece of furniture we sell has a mark in the form of a discreetly fixed polished pewter disk that shows that it is an authentic Benchmark original. This is individually numbered and a record of the piece and purchaser is kept in our register.

Delivery

We have our own fleet of vehicles and drivers to ensure safe delivery. Where we can’t deliver ourselves due to distance, we work with partner companies who offer the same high quality service and care.  Smaller items will be delivered by courier to keep costs as low as possible.  Your furniture will be carefully blanket wrapped to protect it whilst in transit, delivered into the room of your choice and unwrapped.  Please let us know if you have any access issues.

Our delivery cost is dependent upon your postcode and will be calculated when you place your order.   You are welcome too pick up your furniture from our workshop if you would prefer (we’d love to meet you!).

Peace of Mind

We take pride in all our goods being made to exceptional standards but because things sometimes go wrong, our returns policy states that where a damaged or faulty piece of furniture is delivered, we will do our utmost to rectify the error as quickly as possible. If you are unhappy with your purchase for other reasons, let us know within seven days and we will guarantee a refund providing the item is returned in "as new condition" within 14 days. Unfortunately we are unable to refund shipping, handling or insurance charges, except of course in the case of any errors on our part. Bespoke pieces made to special order cannot be refunded, unless there is a fault with the product.

We are confident that our furniture will stand the test of time and offer a five year guarantee against defective workmanship and materials. However, please note that most of our furniture is made of solid timber, and you should expect it to move slightly in damp or overly dry conditions.

Care guides

Care instructions for Oiled Pieces

 

Our furniture is very easy to look after, and with a little care, will continue to look beautiful for future generations.  We use Osmo Polyx Oil, a hard wax oil, which keeps the timber looking and feeling as natural as possible whilst providing a level of protection against every day stains and spills.

The choice of oil depends upon the timber.  For oak we offer three choices of oil - a clear oil which gives a warm, honey tone, a white oil which keeps the oak looking natural and counters the natural darkening with age and raw oil which keeps the timber closes to its natural state. For ash, we offer just the white oil as clear oil tends to make it look a little yellow.  Walnut is only offered in clear oil which brings out its rich grain and colour.

The wax will be fully hardened after 4 weeks.  Particular care should be taken in the first few weeks after delivery.

To clean on a daily basis simply wipe the surface with a damp cloth and then remove any moisture with a dry cloth.  Wipe off anything that will stain straight away, eg red wine, balsamic vinegar, oil, tea, coffee, alcohol, etc.
Occasionally spills may penetrate the oil and you may need to re-oil.  Make sure the area is dry. Lightly sand the stain along the grain with a fine grade sandpaper until you can no longer see the mark.  You will be removing a thin layer of the wax oil.  Blend in the edges of the stain by lightly sanding the surrounding area.  Apply a thin layer of Osmo Polyx oil (two teaspoons of oil should be enough to cover 1m2) to the sanded area on a soft cloth.  Concentrate on the sanded area and then blend in the edges by wiping the cloth across the surrounding area.  You may need to reapply the oil after 2 hours to provide a match with the existing finish.
 
Dents and scratches may be sanded out with sandpaper or steamed with heat from an iron applied on top of a damp cloth.  You will notice that it now feels slightly rough where the grain has come out.  Use fine grade sandpaper to lightly sand and ‘de-nib’ the grain.  The sanded area can then be treated as above.
