Asian Adventure!

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Simon has just returned from a whistle stop tour around Asia to meet with our current suppliers and work with some potential new ones. During the trip, Simon visited India, Thailand and Singapore and whilst there, signed off new furniture and accessory designs in our Mallani, Hathi and Thakat ranges. These samples will arrive in the UK in October and will be featured in our new catalogue in autumn 2014. These trips over to India are really important to us as it means we can work with our suppliers to ensure that the new furniture designs are exactly as we want them. As many of our furniture designs are based on customer requests, we work extra hard to make sure the finished product is exactly what you want.

During his quick tour around Asia, Simon also visited our Surin suppliers in Thailand. We have some lovely new Surin lines on the way which will be ready for our catalogue in the autumn. During this visit Simon was able to collaborate with production to ensure product quality and to enhance the quality control process. Watching the skilled carvers at work is always mesmerising - as they carve beautiful tables and stools from a lump of trunk!

Simon finished off his trip  in Singapore by taking in a trade fair where he was able to meet potential new suppliers and get lots of new ideas for new furniture designs and ranges.

We can’t wait for the summer when all the samples start to arrive here at Myakka HQ ready for photography. We love designing new products and it is great to be able to see the whole process from design and manufacture to finally seeing the finished pieces of furniture in the catalogue and then on into customer homes. Many of our designs are based on customer requests, so if there is a piece of furniture you feel we’re missing let us know... email us at hello@myakka.co.uk or let us know on Facebook or Twitter.

Watch this space to get the first looks at some exciting new additions….

Delivery at Myakka

Wednesday, 5 March 2014

We deliver all over the UK with an aim of getting all in stock orders out to its new home in 14 days, but it is often even faster! We have worked to make our delivery as easy as possible to understand as different size items of furniture and accessories have different delivery charges – however no matter what you order there is only ever one delivery charge per order!

We have worked hard to make sure our delivery prices are fair and transparent wherever you’re based in UK.  When you order online your full delivery cost will be calculated based on your postcode before you complete your order so you know exactly how much it is going to be at the time of ordering.

When you order furniture from us we always give you a call to discuss the delivery details before we despatch your item from our warehouse. We never want to leave your beautiful furniture sitting on the doorstep, that’s why we need your day time phone number.

Standard delivery is £4.95 for smaller pieces of furniture and most accessories and soft furnishings, larger pieces of furniture are priced in the grid - the lorry symbols are displayed against every product both online and in our catalogue to indicate if additional delivery services apply... just look out for the little trucks! 


Delivery+ - denotes a pre-booked delivery, usually within 14 days, with your items being carried into the room of your choice and all packaging removed.  UK Highland & Island deliveries or outlying areas are calculated by postcode as shown.

Standard Delivery – most of our soft furnishings, gifts and accessories fall into this category as well as some of our smaller furniture items such as our Contemporary Nest of Tables and the Surin Infinity Table. This is a one-man service either through Royal Mail or our dedicated courier and covers delivery to your door.
      
Standard: Medium Lift – This covers furniture which only requires a one man delivery service such as our Hathi Cupboard and the Thakat Blanket Boxes. This is a one-man service through our dedicated couriers and covers delivery to your door.

Delivery+: Large Lift – This includes some of our bigger furniture which requires a two man delivery service including pre-booked delivery, usually within 14 days, with your items being carried into the room of your choice and all packaging removed.
