We have recently received a complaint from a client who made their purchase through Alibaba. It was a disheartening experience. The client showed us photos of the craftsmanship on Alibaba.
The Alibaba Experience:
This client's disheartening experience serves as a reminder that the online marketplace with Alibaba, while offering convenience, can sometimes lead to unexpected outcomes. In the vast sea of suppliers from China, instances have occurred where products received were of lower quality or deviated from the depictions provided. As you venture into the world of online furniture purchase, it's essential to remain aware of these potential challenges and arm yourself with the knowledge needed to navigate them.
At Lila & Lin, we believe in the value of quality craftsmanship and exceptional service. In light of recent experiences shared by this client, we feel the importance of addressing the potential challenges that can arise when sourcing these highly skilled upholstery modulars online. In this blog post, we shed light on the considerations and precautions you should take to ensure that your online furniture-buying journey is met with satisfaction and confidence.
The rear backs of our sofa back supports:
The rear backs of all of our back supports are meticulously covered by hand. There should leave no detail unnoticed, ensuring that every inch is expertly upholstered for a seamless and refined look. And there should definitely no ugly staplers!
The buttons need to be strategically placed:
All the buttons on the sofa need to be aligned and positioned. Even though they are placed for decorative purposes, they are still functional connectors. The buttons on the mah jong sofas are strategically placed along the edges of each modular unit. They need to be eventually distributed to facilitate a balanced and well-proportioned appearance. The placement of buttons on the Mahjong sofa contributes to its visual cohesion, allowing you to seamlessly blend different modules into a unified seating arrangement. This attention to detail ensures that your sofa not only provides comfort but also enhances the aesthetic of your living area.
This is upholstery modular sofa. Every stitch is supposed to be thoughtfully executed to ensure an even and seamless finish that exudes sophistication. There shouldn't be unraveled or loose stitches. Traditional heavy-duty upholstery staplers are definitely NOT supposed to used. Not only they are shouldn’t be used for high-end furnitures, they pose potential hazards, especially in households with children, pets. This is especially true for making outdoor modulars where safety is paramount.
Refrain from adding plastic Legs bottoms:
We refrain from adding plastic leg bottoms or rubber bases to our French daybed modular sofas unless specifically requested by clients. We advise against incorporating leg bottoms into these modular designs. The intention is for both the top and bottom to present a consistent appearance, allowing for versatile mix-and-match possibilities and seamless up-and-down functionality – ensuring usability from either side.
Furthermore, it's important to note that these leg bottoms are not designed to be affixed with nails, which poses serious danger for household use. This is not a fast-producing factory where you produce low-end furnishing for heavy-duty use.
For the underside of the cushions, it's crucial that they mirror the top surface. The bottoms should not be concealed by other fabrics or materials.
