Should you have a change in mind after receiving these products, we offer full refund if the product is returned within 14 days of delivery and is unopened and in its original condition.
Are there any conditions?
You must be the original purchaser of the product (i.e. the order must be in your name) and products must be returned from the original address that the order was delivered to.
We encourage you to try a product first before purchasing many, which is why we limit returns per customer and address to one of each type of product.
The product must be undamaged, safe and in such a condition that it will be accepted as a donation by one of Design.Online’s charity partners. This includes the product being free from stains, tears, soiling and odours. Design.Online will not offer a full or partial refund for products that are damaged or that otherwise do not comply with these conditions.
We offer a flexible returns policy to make your online shopping experience even easier. We monitor the number of returns made by customers, and continued returns will be flagged and may, at our discretion, lead to the closure of your Design.Online account or future orders to you or your delivery address being refused. If at least one of a particular product type is returned from an initial order, that customer or shipping address will not be eligible for additional Trial Periods on subsequent orders of that particular product (e.g. if you return a SmartSofa, you will not be eligible for the applicable Trial Period on future SmartSofa orders).
How can I check the status of my refund?

Why are you called Design.Online?
We have a very clear purpose, and that’s to enhance people’s lives by offering timeless, intelligent design, delivered in under 3 hours, at prices everyone can afford.
We have created ground-breaking design at a ground-breaking price.
What is your design philosophy?
Although we are a new brand, our design DNA stretches back to 1977, which is when our parent-company, King Living was founded. King Living is the most awarded furniture company in Australian history and this new business continues that impressive pedigree.
Design.Online was born from a King Living research program which was focused on eliminating waste and developing methods for converting production offcuts to new usable materials. The research program was so successful that the company created a new design-focused sub-brand, managed and driven by a team of the most creative and talented young designers and engineers.
The Design.Online team set about creating a range of breakthrough products that would revolutionise the way furniture is made, delivered and used.
Can I try Design.Online products before I buy them?
Design.Online products are available online only, which is why we offer risk free trial periods with free returns for many of our products. This way you can try products in the comfort of your home, in your time, your way.
What is Design.Online's approach to environmental sustainability?
Improving lives means doing what we can to be a better business for the world and we are serious about sustainability.
We are committed to sustainable product design, we consciously select materials, and look to minimise waste through upcycling, and we are always looking at how we can reduce virgin plastic in our supply chain.
Our packaging is deliberately minimal and contains recycled and compostable materials.
Our supply chain has been fine tuned to limit our carbon footprint and meet best practice standards.
And our products are designed to be up to 99% recyclable.
We are serious about sustainability and looking to redefine the benchmark within the furniture industry.
Design.Online products are created for a long life, not landfill.
