A. From July 2011 the new Shortstop Child’s Stools Set can be ordered and sent overseas. Delivery charges depend on destination and weight and are clearly laid out in the “Delivery” page of this website. Simply use the shopcart and follow the prompts. Please note the 10% GST (like VAT) is not payable on exports and hence will be deducted from your purchase price. We can export some other products but freight is quoted on a case by case basis. These cannot be ordered via the shopcart and sent with Australia Post as their dimensions exceed the maximum stipulated by Australia’s national post/parcel carrier. Contact us and we will advise if the particular item that interests you can be freighted overseas, by what means and at what price.”
Q. Can IYR do other woods or laminate colours?
A. Yes, most frequently for architectural/design firms looking at a reasonable quantity of product. There are presently 6 vibrant laminate colours – 4 core (white, red, yellow, blue) and 2 special edition (purple + orange introduced from July 2011).
Q. Where is In Your Room furniture made?
A. All IYR products are designed and manufactured to a high quality in Australia. We unreservedly pay tribute to our manufacturing partners and are proud to be Australian-made.
Q. How durable is IYR furniture?
A. All IYR pieces and finishes are suitable for general domestic use. Where heavy use is expected in the home or product is destined for a commercial or public setting, IYR recommends European Beech over Hoop-Pine, the former being a harder wood. Alternatively, laminate is an attractive, durable finish.
Q. How should the furniture be cleaned?
Cleaning is by way of a lightly moistened cloth. Stains on laminate can be treated with either citrus oil (best for sticky marks) or a gentle, cream based cleanser. Treat IYR laminate product the way you would a laminate kitchen bench.
Q. How does plywood furniture fare environmentally?
A. Plywood is a responsible choice in environmental terms. It is manufactured from a natural, renewable resource; wood, harvested from plantation forests. Energy requirements for the manufacture of plywood are low in comparison to most other competitive products. It is therefore not only aesthetically pleasing, but environmentally sensitive.
Q. Is IYR furniture suitable for outdoor use?
No. IYR furniture is intended for indoor use only.
Q. Can IYR customise furniture?
A. IYR can modify certain pieces within its range, but only within the parameters permitted by the mould from which each piece is made. For example, the product called “Module” can be made lower than its standard 430mm or trimmed so that it is less than its usual length of 1200 mm. It cannot, however, have its 460mm (tunnel width) measurement pushed out or in.
