This is deducted from your invoice and shown as your commitment for us to proceed with your order. As I am sure you understand, making your furniture costs a considerable amount of time, money, investment and commitment from us. It DOES NOT cover the cost of making the furniture (or shipping). t is an agreed contract between ourselves. If you decide not to go ahead after this agreement or not pay the remainder of the invoice after we have commited and made your furniture, the deposit is not refunded. This is clearly stated on your invoice at time of ordering.
