Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

1. Do you have a physical store location?

Not yet but we will have a Melbourne showroom soon. Our range of AUS / NZ stockists can be viewed here

If you’re based in Melbourne and would like to see and touch a klaylife™ chandelier prior to purchase, contact us and we can arrange a time for your to view our sample range.

2. I’m not sure I want the frills that are included as part of the wire frame - can I remove these?

Absolutely! Some people love the added detail, others prefer a cleaner, more minimal look. We have designs in our range which are ‘frill free’ (i.e LIM) whereas others celebrate the frill (i.e. Twist).

Feel free to contact us and let us know what you’re after.

3. I have a particular colour(s) in mind. Can I change the colour?

For sure! We have selected a colour palette but that’s not to say we aren’t flexible. All you need to do is provide the PMS colour(s) you’d like us to use. This can be applied to the main body of the light and/or the belly bands. Please note that because our beads are porous, some absorb colours more than others, creating a textured look we adore. As a result, we can’t create guarantee an exact match to the PMS colour provided.

Feel free to contact us and let us know what you’re after.

4. I have a design in mind that I would love to have made. Can I design my own light?

Let’s give it a shot! We will need you to draw your desired design and prices may vary according to your idea. Just so long as it’s not a copy of another artists design, we would love to collaborate to bring your concept to life.

Feel free to contact us and let us know what you’re after.

5. Are you on social media?

We’re addicted! Find us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. We would love to see your klaylife™ chandelier in your space so please post a picture to your social media using the hashtag - #myklaylife


CUSTOMER CARE, WARRANTIES + CLAIMS

1. What’s a Production Identification Number?

Every klaylife™ chandelier is individually tagged with a permanent Product Identification Number (see tag on the inside of the frame). This unique number provides traceability of individual product through the production process right through to installation.

Before installation: Note down the product identification number for easy future reference.

2. My klaylife™ chandelier arrived and it appears to be damaged. What do I do?

klaylife™ chandeliers are shipped in special protective packaging but things can always go wrong when freighting goods around the country. So, on delivery, check the outside of the packaging for any signs of damage, then open the box and double check the chandelier is in good condition. If there are any issues please contact us immediately with accompanying photos of the damaged parts and packaging. We have insurance for damage in transit and will act promptly to resolve any issues.

3. Does my klaylife™ chandelier come with a warranty?

klaylife™ chandeliers are covered by a 12 month warranty against manufacturing faults and defects, however in keeping with their handmade nature, there will always be some variation in size, shape, colour and finish of the klaylife™ beads and components. These minor variations are part of the charm of a handmade product and are not manufacturing faults.

If faults and defects do arise, please see our formal warranty statement.

klaylife™, where possible, will also endeavour to have the fault or defect attended to on site so as to minimise any inconvenience. This however will be at the discretion of klaylife™.

4. What if my klaylife™ is out of warranty? Can you still help with repairs?

Yes, we can also assist with products requiring repairs outside of warranty. Just contact us to arrange the repair.  On receipt of a non-warranty repair request, klaylife™ will provide a quote and an indicative repair time.

5. I’ve changed my mind - can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, as each klaylife™ chandelier is made to order, we cannot offer a refund where you made a wrong selection or changed your mind.

7. How do I look after my klaylife™ chandelier?

Your klaylife™ chandelier needs little maintenance to keep it looking like new.

Carefully wipe down with a damp cloth to control the dust. If particularly dusty, clean gently first with a hand held vacuum, or a regular vacuum cleaner and upholstery brush. A light feather duster is another good option.

Adjust the strings of beads where they may have become uneven during cleaning.

2. Will I have to sign for my delivery?

Our freight deliveries are to the doorstep and require a signature upon delivery to acknowledge that the items have been received in good order. Due to liability issues, the customer is responsible for bringing any merchandise into their home. As such, we recommend you have someone available to help you unload, unpack and install your chandelier.

3. What if I am not home when my package arrives?

If, for any reason, our shipping partner is not able to successfully deliver your product(s), they should leave a card with instructions on how to re-arrange the delivery. In these situations, klaylife™ reserves the right to charge you for any additional costs incurred (e.g. shipping and storage) or to cancel the sale contract, in which case, we will fully refund you the net amount (i.e. the amount you paid minus shipping costs or storage costs).
