Hardman Design FAQ
Hardman Design want the process of ordering from us to be as simple as possible. It's for that reason that we've put together our new and improved FAQ section. There are 5 sections below all comprising of a specific subject that you may have questions on. Please take the time to read below, and feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
How does the production process work, and do I have any input?
Yes, you do! Hardman Design stands out not only based on the quality of our materials and our delightful designs, but because of the level of involvement we (both us and you as a team!) have in the production process. From beginning to end, the production is managed, maintained and undertaken by us, with complete sign-off from you.
Before making your big purchase, we send you samples of the material we will use. We want you to be comfortable with what you’re getting, so we want you to tell us that you’re happy with what we’re using. We want you to be able to see and feel the quality ecological materials we offer. We’re confident that our customers will be happy with what they receive, and we encourage you to sample the material. This is when your Hardman Design experience begins.
Once you place your order, we move on to the design process. Here, you will also be involved in the production journey, with our designers sending you images of each piece of wood we use. Only when you confirm once more will we proceed with the build. If there is something you don’t like in the material, we will change it as much as you need until you’re 100% happy.
Finally, we don’t send out the completed item until you’ve given final approval. You will get this in the form of detailed images sent directly to you. When you confirm you’re happy, we’ll send out your item and not a moment before.
We’ve always believed that the greatest bespoke designs involve teamwork from start to finish. For your order, we welcome you into our team. You have as much influence as anyone else in the design process, and we can’t wait to hear from you.
