Frequently Asked Questions
About Our Furniture
Where is your furniture produced?
Our pieces are produced by the top custom upholstery and wood artisans in the North Carolina region. This area is known to be the world's premier source for high-quality furniture, thanks to strong traditions of craftsmanship that have been passed down through generations. Each of our partners brings decades of expertise to the furniture making process.
How do you ensure a quality product?
Our team spends months, even years, working closely with our partners to develop our furniture from the inside out—from selecting every component to extensively sampling and testing pieces in our own homes.
When your piece is completed, it goes through a rigorous inspection process to guarantee precise workmanship. Every piece isn't shipped until it's perfect.
How does Maiden Home differ from other North Carolina furniture makers?
While pieces of comparable quality can be found with other North Carolina-based furniture makers, we are proud to offer our heritage quality pieces to the online customer in a way that has never been done before. That is what really sets Maiden Home apart–we will always be offering the best possible value to our customers by eliminating all additional costs and shipping directly to our customers through our online model. Along with eliminating the costs you would incur at a local furniture store or big box retailer, we offer additional value through our unlimited white glove delivery, as well as the added comfort of our return policy.
Additionally, Maiden Home never offers any type of sale or seasonal promotion. This means that we are focusing on the best possible value every day of the year, so you can be sure that you are getting the best price when shopping with us. We feel that this is a more modern way to purchase heritage quality furniture, and it is a more transparent experience than what you would find elsewhere.
What should I know about buying custom furniture?
Each of our pieces is individually handcrafted, with all elements from wood finishes to upholstery details hand-done by our skilled craftsmen. This process results in natural variations from piece to piece, which are expected and contribute to the unique beauty of our furniture. Here are the types of variations you can expect to see in handcrafted, custom furniture:
- Fabric dyelots may vary: Slight differences in texture, color or appearance among fabrics (and leathers) may be found, for example between swatches and furniture pieces.
- Wood finishes may vary: Our finishes are applied by hand to exposed legs and bases made from 100% hardwood. Slight color variations are expected between swatches and furniture pieces, as well as between furniture pieces in the same finish, due to the natural wood grains.
- Natural hides may vary (leather and cowhide): inherent variations in the hide's natural texture, coloring, and hair length make each hide unique and your piece one-of-a-kind.
- Size tolerances are expected: All pieces will be made within a tolerance of 1" of specified dimensions.
We work with our partners to ensure each piece falls within our approved variance range, and this is verified before shipment through our inspection process.
Is your furniture made using toxic chemicals?
We are proud to build our furniture without flame retardants, formaldehyde, or other harmful chemicals.
Our cushion cores are made with renewable, soy-based foam and have been certified by the CertiPUR-US® program to be free of:
- Ozone depleters
- PBDEs, TDCPP, or TCEP flame retardants
- Mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
- Phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
All of our fabrics are made without flame retardants or anti-fungal additives. Our Performance fabrics are free of PFOS and PFOA. Additionally, our Performance fabrics featuring Crypton® Home and Sunbrella include completely non-toxic, GREENGUARD Gold certified treatments for stain resistance.
Lastly, we meet or exceed all national or state-level product safety standards, including CA TB 117-2013.
Do you follow green manufacturing practices?
We source sustainable materials wherever possible for our furniture. These include:
- Our wood pieces and frames are made of responsibly sourced hardwoods meeting the standards of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative
- Springs made of recycled steel
- Cushion cores made with renewable, soy-based foam which partially replaces petroleum based ingredients
- Water-based, low-VOC glues and stains used whenever possible
Our partners are committed to eco-friendly manufacturing practices, including the use of CNC routers to maximize wood yield, and recycling within all facilities.
How do I maintain my furniture?
We've compiled a helpful list of tips to keep your piece looking its best for years to come. For detailed care instructions on our pieces, please refer to our Care Guide.
For upholstered furniture:
- Vacuum monthly to remove dirt, dust, and pet hair as these can cause fabric to wear faster.
- For pieces designed with removable, fully upholstered cushions, we recommend flipping and rotating each cushion twice monthly for even wear. When flipping, give them a good shake-down (beat them together from either end) to move fibers and feathers around and ensure even distribution.
- Avoid contact with items that may transfer color (newspaper, brand-new jeans).
For wood furniture:
- To clean wood pieces, wipe the surface with a dampened cloth using a non-wax polish or mild detergent solution. Avoid the use of ammonia based products or silicone oils as they may cause damage if used over a long period of time.
- Avoid excessive prolonged exposure to direct sunlight, high temperatures, and high humidity as these environments can cause damage to both the wood and wood finish.
- To extend the life of your natural wood piece, we recommend to always use a beverage coaster; otherwise, enjoy the added character and aging process that happens over time.
How can I view an image of the specific sofa size, sectional configuration, or fabric I am interested in?
Our design team can provide high-quality rendered images of specific pieces. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with the piece you are interested in viewing and we are happy to help.
Are all cushions fully upholstered?
Our fabric upholstered styles, with the exception of The Muir Sofa, are designed with cushions that are fully upholstered, which means they can be flipped for easy maintenance. This is just one of the many hallmarks of our quality. Note, chaise cushions are fully upholstered but cannot be flipped due to their shape.
Cushions upholstered in leather are not fully upholstered by design. Each leather cushion is lined with a denim fabric on its underside; the denim allows for proper air flow in and out of the cushion with use. The denim also features a velcro application which ensures leather cushions remain in place on your sofa. Note, due to this velcro application leather pieces are not made with elastic tie-downs.
What are the elastic ties that connect your sofa seat cushions to frame?
We've designed hidden elastic ties that secure the seat cushions of our sofas in place, so that they don't shift underneath you with use. The elastic ties are clipped to the frame on both sides of each seat cushion.
Which pieces come with cushion tie-downs?
All of our 75-100" fabric sofas, apart from The Dune and The Muir Collections, will feature cushion tie-downs on either side of the seat cushion. Loveseats smaller than 70" wide and all sectionals, apart from The Sullivan Collection, do not feature cushion tie-downs as the smaller scale of the seat cushions allows for the same stability without a need for additional support. Chaise cushions do not feature tie-downs.
What can I expect with a down sofa?
Down and feather cushioning offers an incredibly luxurious feel which is a hallmark of our Dune, Sullivan, and Jones Collections. Down and feather fill will naturally settle over time, and require fluffing to maintain its shape. All Maiden Home back cushions, including those filled with down and feather, are sewn with horizontal channels–this special treatment reduces the maintenance required to keep down and feather cushions looking lofted and fresh.Each Maiden Home cushion is also lined with downproof ticking, a material that prevents excessive feather migration (out of the cushion). We have selected the highest quality downproof material that allows us to lessen migration, while ensuring breathability and comfort. With this material, it is not uncommon for feathers to occasionally come through the cushions.
Do you offer down alternative cushioning?
Yes, The Sullivan, Dune, Muir and Jones collections are available with a down alternative cushion. Down alternative cushions are filled with microdenier fiber, an ultra fine synthetic fiber that mimics the sink-in feel of down and feather. Down alternative cushioning will offer the same relaxed look and feel of these best-selling collections, and will carry a similar maintenance profile. The Sullivan, Dune, Muir and Jones with down alternative will feature our standard high-resiliency Ultracel core, special down-proof ticking and channeling in both seat and back cushions.
To special order your piece with down alternative, please contact us at email@example.com.
Do you offer matching ottomans?
Apart from The Muir Collection, matching ottomans are available for purchase on each sofa and sectional shopping page.
Do all sofas have center support legs at all sizes?
No, center support legs are not necessary on smaller widths, so we have eliminated them for a more streamlined look. Center support legs are found at the below sizes:
- Carmine, Sullivan, Warren, & Dune: 95"+
- Ludlow, Crosby, & Varick: 90"+
What kind of support is included for my mattress? Are any other components necessary?
Our beds are made with a system of hardwood slats milled from solid poplar wood. Each slat is 2.25" wide and spaced 3" apart along the foundation of the bed, and additionally secured with center support legs (1 for Queen sizes, 2 for King and Cal King). With this highly durable foundation, Maiden Home Beds do not require a box spring; however, a box spring can be accommodated if preferred, with the exception of the Wythe Bed.
Can I use an adjustable mattress or frame?
Our beds were designed for use with our support system in mind, however many customers have used alternative support systems with success. We are not able to confirm the compatibility of specific systems with Maiden Home frames. Please refer to the dimensions of the bed cavity to determine if your specific system will be compatible. The unique curve of The Wythe Headboard needs to be taken into account when determining the fit with an alternative support system.
If you are interested in using an adjustable base, our design team can create a custom invoice for your order at firstname.lastname@example.org. This custom bed will be crafted without the interior side rails and will provide the open cavity needed to use your own support system. Please note that using any support system other than the one that Maiden Home provides will void your warranty.
Can I order just the headboard for my bed?
No, our beds are only available to order as a complete bed with the side rails and footboard.
Are the beds available in a Twin or Full size?
Our beds are only available standard in Queen, King, and California King sizes.
About Our Materials
What makes your fabrics special?
We source our materials from the world’s leading textile mills and leather tanneries including Crypton Home, Sunbrella, Moore & Giles, and JB Martin. By partnering directly with these suppliers, we’re able to offer designer quality and unique Performance technologies at exceptional value to our clients.
When curating our assortment, we seek out beauty, softness, and quality. Our luxury materials offer high-end comfort and rich textural interest that you will love for many years to come with minimal maintenance. All our fabrics meet the industry’s highest marks for longevity, including:
- Abrasion Resistance: With 18,000 double-rubs and above, our fabrics are designed to wear well in residential settings.
- Pilling: With pill ratings of 3 and above, our fabrics resist migration with daily use.
Lastly, we ensure our fabrics are healthy for your family, too. All of our fabrics are made without flame retardants or other toxic chemicals, and we only work with Performance technologies that are free of PFOS and PFOA.
If you are interested in the fiber composition of our fabrics as well as their specific double rub counts and pill ratings, our Design Advisors would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
What are Performance fabrics?
Our Performance fabrics feature Crypton Home, Sunbrella, or Defend technologies that offer remarkable resistance to stains and odors. They repel liquid spills and can be easily cleaned with soap and water.
You can spot clean our Performance fabrics with a solution of 1/4 tsp mild detergent (Tide, Woolite, or the like) per 1 cup lukewarm water. Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle, then lightly scrub with a sponge. Allow the solution to soak into the fabric, then rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residues. Repeat as needed, then allow fabric to air dry.
Are your Performance fabrics chemically treated?
We only work with Performance technologies that are free of potentially harmful chemicals like VOCs, formaldehyde, phthalates and flame retardants.
Can I machine wash my cushion covers?
We do not recommend machine washing cushion covers, as this process may damage the fabric, backing, or stitching.
What is the difference between Pebbled Leather, Tuscan Leather, and Nubuck Leather?
Each of our top-grain Italian leather collections is sourced from Moore & Giles, one of the industry’s highest regarded suppliers of quality leathers. The difference lies in their finishing processes:
- Pebbled Leather’s embossed finish offers a contemporary aesthetic, with excellent protection against spills and scratches. It has an even color tone and few, if any, natural markings.
- Tuscan Leather is a smoother, all natural, and minimally processed leather. It is considered a "pull up" leather, which means it will stretch and lighten up slightly during the upholstery process.
- Nubuck Leather is lightly buffed giving a soft, suede-like texture and velvety hand for a soft and sophisticated feel.
How do I care for leather?
Leather is designed to be a very low maintenance material—when it comes to cleaning, less is more. You may dust periodically with a dry cloth, but otherwise enjoy the natural aging process of your leather. Never use harsh solvents or cleaners that are not specifically recommended for leather.
Avoid direct sunlight, which will fade all leathers over time.
What should I know about purchasing and maintaining Tuscan Leather?
Tuscan Leather is a top-grain aniline leather, sourced by our partners Moore & Giles from a fifth-generation Italian tannery. Tuscan Leather is a beautiful choice for customers desiring the classic, rich look that only leather can offer, with an appearance that will beautifully soften over time.
Being a natural, minimally processed material, each hide of Tuscan Leather is unique. You may see variations in color shading from your original swatch, as well as natural markings such as scars and stretch marks. As these markings are inherent to the hides, they are not considered defects and instead contribute to the unique beauty of your piece.
It is also important to note that your final piece may be lighter in color than the original swatch you received. As Tuscan Leather is pulled during the upholstery process, the distribution of its surface waxes and oils create a lighter appearance. You will especially notice this in areas where the material is pulled taut, such as the back cushions of a tight-back sofa or arms. You can mimic this effect at home by dragging your finger along the backside of the swatch to reveal the lighter shades of the material.
Lastly, when your piece is first received you may notice surface scratches as a result of tightly wrapped packaging. These are not permanent, and easily removed in the home by applying light heat to the area with a hair dryer to warm up the surface wax, then gently rubbing it back into place with your fingers. You may also use this approach for ongoing maintenance of your piece. In general, Tuscan Leather is a highly durable material and should only be dusted periodically with a dry cloth to remove residual dust and to prevent dirt from building up. No harsh cleaners or solvents should ever be used on the leather, as they could abrade the finish or topcoat.
What is Nubuck Leather, and how is it cared for in the home?
Our Nubuck Leather is a top-grain Italian leather from Moore & Giles, one of America’s oldest and most revered leather companies. Each hide is lightly buffed for a soft, suede-like texture and velvety hand, adding sophisticated texture and variation to each piece. Its luxury is felt in the refined texture and soft glow created by the way light is subtly reflected off of its surface. Natural variation and pebbling will be present when this leather is pulled for upholstery, highlighting the unique character and beauty of each hide. You can mimic the range of tones by pulling your finger along the back of the swatch.
As nubuck is made from top-grain leather, it is more durable and long-lasting compared to suede. Though it is treated during tanning, spills should immediately be wiped away to avoid staining. Never use harsh solvents or cleaners that are not specifically recommended for nubuck leather. To maintain the look of your nubuck leather, dust periodically with a dry cloth, otherwise enjoy the natural aging process.
What wood finishes are available?
Each collection is designed with a specific assortment of wood finish options, intentionally selected to fit the design and functionality of the piece. From the handwaxed finish of Natural Ash to our selection of hand-applied lacquered hues, each is designed to highlight the natural beauty and unique character of the solid wood design. You can view the assortment of finishes available in our collections on each product page.
Can I order wood finish swatches?
Wood finish samples are available for order here. Please note, variation in grain and texture is to be expected between your wood sample and final piece, given the natural materials used. We’ll be happy to refund your swatch purchase less 10% for handling if returned within 30 days of the original ship date.

Order Changes & Cancellations
Can I make changes to my order after it has been placed? Is it possible to cancel an order?
Cancellations and/or changes to an order are free within one business day of order placement if the order has not already shipped. After this period, for any change or cancellation, 10% of the purchase price will be withheld from the cancellation or change. Any changes in fabric, configuration, finish etc. made after one business day will also be subject to the aforementioned fee. Orders may not be canceled once pieces are complete in production or shipped.
In fairness to our craftsmen partners we are unable to make exceptions and strongly encourage customers to review their orders in detail and reach out to our design advisory team with any questions before placing an order.
What is your warranty policy?
We guarantee our furniture is produced at the highest quality standards, and we back this up with an industry-leading warranty policy. Frames and spring systems are under warranty to be free from manufacturing defects for the life of the product. You can view our full Warranty policy here.
What do I do if I believe my product is defective?
If you suspect a manufacturing defect, please contact us as soon as possible. Our Quality team will evaluate next steps based on photos of the piece. If an issue is found, we will arrange to restore your piece to the condition it was in upon leaving the workrooms of our North Carolina partners.
What financing options does Maiden Home offer?
Maiden Home has partnered with Affirm to provide pay-over-time solutions to our customers. Affirm is a financing alternative to credit cards and other credit-payment products. Affirm offers instant loan decisioning for online purchases to be paid in fixed monthly installments over 12, 24, or 36 months, depending on the program. Financing is exclusively available in the United States at this time.
What is the interest rate on your financing program?
Annual Percentage Rate (APR) financing in easy monthly payments with rates from 0% APR is available for qualified customers. Affirm discloses any required fees upfront before you make a purchase, so you know exactly what you will pay for your financing. Affirm does not charge any hidden fees, including annual fees.
What does the approval and checkout process look like for Affirm? Does it impact my credit score?
The approval process for Affirm is very fast. You will be asked a series of questions to verify your identity and once complete, your loan amount will be processed. You can expect to receive your loan amount in less than 5 minutes.
Affirm does a “soft” credit check, which verifies your identity but does not affect your credit score. Affirm's underwriting model does not use a hard credit check.
When ready to place your order, choose “Pay with Affirm” at checkout to apply for your loan. After your purchase, you’ll receive monthly emails and SMS reminders about your upcoming payments. You can also set up autopay to avoid missing a payment. Your first monthly payment is due 30 days from the date that Maiden Home processes your order.
How are refunds and returns handled when paying through Affirm?
Affirm will credit any loan payments the customer has made, up to the refund amount, to the original form of payment within 3 to 10 business days of the refund. The refund does not include interest paid on the loan, and Maiden Home’s return policy will apply to all orders paid with Affirm.
Who should I reach out to if I have questions surrounding my loan?
Upon loan confirmation, you will receive an email and text from Affirm letting you know that you have successfully taken out a loan with Affirm. In that communication, you will be presented with an email for Affirm and a phone number, which you should use if you have any questions or concerns.
