( 6 reviews )

France and Son is a home décor and furniture company which aims to provide customers with some of the highest quality replicas on the market at the best prices. 

How Does It Work?

According to their website, the creator of France and Son loved classic vintage and mid-century furniture but quickly found that those pieces were very difficult to find and once they were located, they were often extremely expensive.

To solve this problem, France and Son’s was established with the goal of giving everyone access to beautiful furniture at affordable prices.

The journey began with the search for factories overseas that were making high quality reproductions of antique furniture and expanded toward including original designs from new designers that echo the quality and aesthetic of the antique pieces that inspired the establishment of the store. 

Since they were initially established, the website says that their NY based staff has “hand curated the best collection of Mid-Century Modern, Casual Chic and Modern Designs that we feel fits today’s young and vibrant lifestyle.”

Customers are welcome to go to their website and use their search feature to find a specific product they are interested in, as well as to search their categories, which include Furniture, Lighting, Bed & Bath, Kitchen & Dining, Outdoor, Decor, and Sale.

Cost/Price Plans

Because this website offers a wide variety of products, there is no real way to quote a single or static price range for the items, especially when you take into account any sales or promotions that will take place throughout the year.

That being said, this website does emphasize that they work hard to ensure their products are affordable.  

Refund Policy

The website is very clear that they will provide their customers with a refund as long as customers successfully contact them within 14 days of the date of delivery in order to initiate the return, though they are unable to accept returns of international or custom orders. 

In order to have your return approved for a refund, customers must be able to provide a valid receipt of their purchase, and all items must be in brand new, original condition with all the original packaging and hardware. 

If your purchase was originally delivered with free shipping, the cost of shipping will be deducted from your refund once your purchase is returned, and no returns will be accepted after 30 days from the date of the return authorization. 

Customer Service Contact Info

Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 866-865-0898, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link. 

Reputation

This company does not appear to have very many reviews at this time, but unfortunately of the few reviews that have been posted, many of them are negative in nature and tone and they all appear to have the same significant complaint. 

The main issue was the lack of customer service. It appears that customers who had no issues with their orders or the furniture they received were happy with their purchases and posted positive reviews.

However, if a customer had a problem with their order or the furniture they received was damaged in some way, the reviews all seem consistent in saying that they received poor customer service, if they received any service at all.

Some reviewers claim that their phone calls and emails were never acknowledged or returned. 

Competitors and Alternatives?

There are many, many different furniture stores available both off and online, including Wayfair.com, Casa.com, Stoneberry.com, and many others.

Scam Company
June 26, 2022
Please don't shop here. They aren't to be trusted. They told me I would get a full refund because my items still weren't in stock after the ETA. They asked me to sign some forms for my refund. They didn't give me a full refund. They charged me a restocking fee... when they didn't even have the items in stock. Save yourself the headache.

No integrity
June 22, 2022

I ordered bookcases from France and Son and the order was confirmed May 6th. I had follow-on communications over the next 6 weeks regarding when the bookcases would be delivered.

France and Son provided contradictory and misleading information regarding the shipping/delivery. I asked for a tracking number and delivery date and they refused to provide either. I became frustrated and convinced that my money was being stolen and asked that they cancel the order and provide a refund.

I followed up this request with a phone call and found out that this was the one request that they claimed to honor **no refund received yet**.

I find it strange that they could not answer any request or deliver the product, but they were HAPPY to cancel. When I checked their website I discovered why they would not honor my purchase.

I paid $1111.00 per bookcase and they are now listed for $1529.00 on every site that carries them. That means that France and Son accepted my purchase and at some point realized the price increased on the bookcases and then delayed delivery and lied every step of the way.

That is BAD business. France and Son, you may make a higher profit on the sale but you lack integrity. SHAME ON YOU.

Worst customer service I've ever experienced
May 19, 2022

They cancelled my order (which, before purchasing, a representative told me was in stock and ready to ship—it was not) that I’d paid for in full and had been waiting 3 months for on the day it was supposed to be delivered without even notifying me. Customer service is comprised of three sexist, condescending men who literally laughed as they hung up on me as they said “i’m not dealing with this.” I tried to call back and be as calm as possible but the manager refused to take my call (to be clear, I had accidentally cursed while explaining the situation out of frustration, but none of that cursing was directed at him). They would not give me any options, told me to re-purchase at a now higher price (inflation) and said that the case was closed once they refunded my money (which I asked them not to do). customer service continuously hung up on me and “transferred” me to full mailboxes or fake numbers.

They also gave me several different reasons as to why they cancelled the order. The first being that France & Son had failed to pick up the order from the manufacturer in time, so the manufacturer cancelled it. I insisted that I could go pick it up, but they said the item was gone and I’d have to go back to the end of the queue. I honestly had never been treated like this by any company in my life and had my lawyer call them (who they kept referring to as “him,” when I corrected them and said she was a woman) and they lied about the reason they canceled the order, saying they cancelled it because I was rude. How could that be, when I was only calling once I found out from the delivery company that order had already been canceled? I finally got in touch with their president and the sales team, and so far they have offered to sell me the chair at the price I’d paid, but that I’d have to coordinate pickup from the manufacturer myself.

As someone who’s worked in the service industry and in marketing at the world’s biggest tech companies, I truly cannot believe that they consider this helpful. They are acting like they are doing me a favor, and making me pay for my own transportation, when normally shipping is free. I also have yet to get clarity as to where the warehouse is, and if I can go get the chair soon, or will have to start back at the end of the line.

TLDR: They may be a couple hundred cheaper than other sites, but the opportunity cost that I’ve sacrificed dealing with them when I should have been working has far eclipsed the stress and savings. I’ve never seen a business run this poorly, honestly, in my entire life.

France and Son are liars!

I tried to buy an item online from them! They took my money and never delivered the product! I called twice to get my money back. The customer service personnel are rude and no help! Don't buy from this company!

Items are not as pictured
December 10, 2018
I ordered a nesting table with stainless steel legs and solid marble. On the website, it is pictured as white marble with gray striations. The marble I received was completely different (beige/gold striations), like the one pictured for the gold marble nesting table. I have been back and forth with customer service and they insist it is carrara marble and won't replace it for the correct marble. In addition it took about 4 months to receive this table when no where on the website did it mention it was back ordered.

Products are missleading
December 15, 2016
I ordered a side table that was advertised as a hardwood (tan color) top with gunmetal legs. What I eventually received was more like a black granite top with mirrored steel legs. At the time I ordered it there was no mention on the website that there were color variations. I expected some variations of wood grain but nothing else. From the beginning there were shipping issues, that were resolved after 3 weeks of phone calls and a pervious bad review. After a formal complaint about the product, what I heard back was there were no physical defects in the table so I'm SOL. France and Sons and their source on this table are deceptive and shouldn't be advertising something that is so blatantly missleading.
