Custom Products

Some of the products available on Modern Karibou are custom made-to-order and our manufacturers offer numerous options to fit your needs. Such items typically include furniture, where you can select color, fabric, upholstery, finish, material, size and/or configuration. 

There are other instances where items may not be customizable, but they are handmade and subject to the same return policy as "custom" products. 

Both types of items are considered final sale and cannot be cancelled, returned or refunded unless damaged upon receipt.

When an item is considered "custom," Modern Karibou indicates this below the customs options on the right-hand side of the product page, as well as on the website page where you review the product before placing your order. This way, you are fully aware of all relevant information before you make your purchase.
