Why Live Light?
Live Light is the exclusive furniture rental partner of the Ethnicraft brand.
Ethnicraft is known for timeless designs that fit in any style and which meet the highest quality standards. Our foundation stems from more than 25 years experience in the solid wood furniture design and manufacturing industry. Together we are on a mission to close the loop towards a more sustainable, circular economy, business model. This partnership makes it possible as we have full control of the (re)design, production, distribution, repair, remanufacturing and recycling processes.
Since Live Light's launch in September 2020, we've developed unparalleled expertise in the refurbishment and maintenance of our designs. By lengthening each and every one of our products' lifespans, we aim to minimise our environmental footprint and further reduce waste.
What do you mean with a circular economy?
Traditionally, economies have been linear by design: materials are harvested, processed and disposed of when the products are no longer needed. There is no collaboration to maximize the value of products. In a circular economy, the loop is closed. So quality products are sustainably sourced and built to last, kept in circulation at their highest value, reducing waste and their environmental impact.
For more information on the circular economy, we highly recommend you to visit the Ellen Macarthur Foundation.

Can I add products to my existing subscription plan?
Yes, of course! If you decide to add products to your subscription, please contact us. We'll set up a new subscription for you. You will then benefit from a reduced delivery fee of €99.
Can I extend my subscription period?
Yes, once your minimum subscription period is over, your subscription will keep running at the same monthly fee until you decide to end it.
Can I end my subscription early?
Yes you can can! It's possible to end your subscription at any time. If you decide to return your products early, we will simply revise your monthly rental price according to our shorter subscription plans. This will always be calculated in your favour.
Imagine you choose a sofa for a minimum of 12 months, but after 7 months you decide to return it.
• You will have already paid 7 months x 30€/m = 210 €
• Revision of monthly rental price :
• Option 1 : 12 months x 30€/m (=12 months subscription plan price) = 360€ - 210€ (already paid) = 150€ still to be paid.
• Option 2 : 7 months x 43€/m (=6 months subscription plan price) = 301€ - 210€ (already paid) = 91€ still to be paid.
As option 2 is in your favour, we will choose this option for your account settlement.
Can I change my furniture when I've reached my minimum subscription period?
Going for a new look? Great! You can change your items when you've reached your minimum subscription period. Just contact us so we can arrange a 'swap' date. A new contract will be set up for the new items. If you want to make a change earlier in the process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I swap my furniture before the end of my minimum subscription period?
Yes, you can swap products at any time. If you have been renting your pieces for less than 24 months, a swap fee will be calculated to help cover the product's check and repair. In this case, the swap fee is equal to two months' rental fee, or equal to the revision of the monthly rental price, whichever is lowest. (see Question 'Can I end my subscription early'?).
If you have been renting your pieces for more than 24 months, you are eligible for free swaps!
All product swaps must meet the following conditions: Swap fees are calculated per product. You must be swapping one product for another (same quantity, but can be in any category). The delivery fee for the new product(s), as well as any damage fees, are still applicable. The new product(s) starts a new subscription and a new contract.
Can I buy the furniture I fell in love with, and how much will it cost?
Yes of course! We make it easy to purchase the items you want to keep. You always have the option to buy any of your items at the current retail price, minus the amount you've paid over the course of your subscription. Write to us at email@example.com to find out more.
What should I do to return my furniture?
Just let us know when you are ready to return your furniture, so we can arrange a pick-up. We kindly ask for two weeks notice before your preferred pick-up date. The pick-up cost is included in the service fee.*
*One free pick-up per subscription. Subsequent pickups will each be charged €149, or free if you place a new order.
What happens if I move during my subscription period?
Moving home? Simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org If your new home is within our service area, your furniture can move with you. If your new home is not within our service area, we will unfortunately have to terminate your subscription and organize collection.
If you are moving within our service area, we can move your Live Light items for you. Get in touch with us and we will let you know the relocation cost. If you choose to move your Live Light items yourself, you will be held responsible for any damage that may occur during the move.

Does Live Light pick-up my old furniture?

What if an item doesn't fit through the door?
Dimensions of all of our products can be found on each product page on our website. While our delivery team are pros at getting large items through tight spaces, we highly recommend that you measure your home in relation to the items in your order. If we cannot fit an item into your home, your service fee will be lost. Please help us to avoid this!
Where is Live Light furniture from?
Live Light works with select furniture brands: Ethnicraft, Flokk and DCW. We believe in products with thoughtful, timeless designs, made of high-quality materials that can last for generations. Pieces in our assortment are also tested for repair in our workshop before being added to the collection.
Is my furniture new?
No. Some of your furniture might be new, while other items will have been used before. But we wonder if you will notice the difference as every Live Light product will be fully refurbished before it leaves our warehouse. Wooden products are particularly suited for refurbishment. Our sofas and textiles will be professionally cleaned using eco-friendly anti-microbial treatments. We take the utmost care to ensure that you receive your items sparkling clean, fresh and as good as new.
What happens if I accidentally break or stain an item?
We ask that you care for your Live Light items like you would if they were your own. Here's a link to our care guide. A little wear and tear is expected as part of daily life, but deep stains, chipped wood, ripped upholstery or any other noticeable damage may require a more extensive repair or might require product replacement. Repair fees are determined on a case-by-case basis. Replacement fees are equivalent to the retail price minus what you've already paid in your monthly usage fees.
As a general rule: spilling a few drops of coffee on your sofa counts as a daily life mishap. Taking a sledgehammer to your bed, does not ...
Is the furniture also for outdoor use?
Most items are for indoor use only. Any signs of moisture from outdoor use on our indoor-only products will incur a repair fee. If the item is suited for outdoor use, it will be mentioned in the product details. You can find our (brand new!) outdoor collection here.
Is the furniture kid and pet friendly?
We want everyone to enjoy your home, including your two or four-legged family and friends. Thanks to our refurbishing pros, you don’t need to worry about little scratches here and there. Larger upholstery damage, fabric tears or extensive chew marks, however, will incur a repair or replacement fee. We evaluate these instances on a case-by-case basis.
Do I need to sign a contract?
During check-out, you will have to accept our Terms & Conditions in order to confirm your order. Please make sure you read them carefully. You can also find them here. Once you've placed your order you will receive an order confirmation with a copy of these Terms & Conditions.
Do you require extra verification?
Before we can confirm your subscription, we are required to verify your identity. Once you have placed your order, we kindly ask you to send a copy of both the front and back of your ID card. Once everything is in order, our team will contact you to confirm a delivery date.
When will my card be charged each month?
When placing an order, you will be charged the first month of rental in addition to an upfront service fee* . Your monthly subscription payments will then start one month after the day of the delivery. Your credit card will be charged on that same day of the month, each month, going forward.
