1. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the prevailing rate unless noted otherwise.

2. At the time we accept your order you will be required to pay a minimum deposit of 50% of the full order value. Any remaining balances must be paid and cleared before delivery can be organised. The balance must be paid within 7 days of our notice informing you that we are holding the goods ready for delivery. Goods remain the property of the Company until paid for in full.

4. For distance sales where you have not visited the store, you have the legal right to cancel your order within 7 days of receiving your goods. Regrettably, items cannot be returned once assembly is part or fully completed, unless the item is deemed faulty by the manufacturer. The goods must be returned in their original condition and packaging to our warehouse at your own cost. If required we can arrange for our delivery team to collect the items from you and can provide a quotation upon request. Upon inspection at our warehouse we will arrange a refund minus any collection charges. Our sales team will be happy to clarify the arrangements if you have any queries. This policy does not apply to faulty or damaged goods which are described below.

5. For in-store orders any amendments or cancellation requests made after the date of order will be at the discretion of the Company. Provided the item has not been shipped, we will normally refund all monies paid if an order is cancelled within 72 hours from the time of order. Unfortunately, cancellations after this time will be subject to a 30% charge (50% for trade orders) of the full order value. Additionally, cancellation of an order after the goods have been received into our warehouse will be subject to a 50% charge of the full order value. Please note that if your items are being made to order, are customised, or are a factory order, we cannot accept cancellations or returns, only in the instance that the item(s) are confirmed damaged or faulty by the manufacturer.

Delivery Time

8. The majority of our furniture is manufactured in Italy and is prepared for each order individually.

9. Whilst we do try to accommodate deliveries on a day which is convenient for you our delivery teams are not in every post code area every day so your delivery will be arranged according to which day our vehicle is in your area. Please advise us should you require further details or have any specific delivery needs. Deliveries are made Monday to Friday. You will be allocated an AM or PM delivery slot and the delivery team will call you en-route to give you an estimated time of arrival if requested. In the event that you are not present or available to receive your goods during the agreed time slot, or cancel the delivery once the goods are out for delivery, a delivery charge will be made to deliver your order to you at another time.

10. The delivery date and time slot given is approximate and may change due to circumstance beyond our control. If your order is delayed we will endeavor to inform you as soon as possible, however, we are unable to accept liability for consequential losses as a result. We are not responsible for delays due to raw materials shortages etc. from our suppliers.

Delivery Service

11. It is your responsibility to check that the furniture you have purchased can be delivered to your property. We recommend that you measure the entrance, the route by which the item will enter the property and the space that it will occupy. In the event that your order cannot be delivered due to access problems then we will charge for storage and re-delivery as necessary. In the event that goods have been made to order and they cannot be delivered for this reason we cannot offer a refund so please check your measurements carefully. It is your responsibility to inform us of any difficulties that may be encountered when delivering to your property and this must be documented on the sales form. We will, whenever possible deliver to the room of your choice, but the Company is only responsible for delivery to your building door at street level.

12. If the customer fails to collect or accept delivery of the goods within 2 weeks of notification of availability, or if for any reason you cannot accept the delivery on the date agreed we will charge storage at a cost of £6 per cubic metre per week, with a minimum of 1 cubic metre and no partial amounts.

Delivery Time

13. Please check that your items are delivered and assembled correctly and your order is complete. Any claim regarding shortages, damaged or defective goods must be clearly stated on the proof of delivery notification form. Please ensure you thoroughly inspect your furniture before you sign the proof of delivery, as we are unable to accept claims after our assemblers have left the delivery address.

Store Collection

14. Your sales consultant may give you the option to collect small items directly from the store. If this is the case, once your order has arrived in store please collect it within 7 days. After this, due to restricted storage space, it may be necessary to return your item to our warehouse. A delivery charge will be made to deliver your order to you or the store at another time and storage charges will apply as noted in item 13 above.

15. Please notify the store the day before you propose to collect your order to ensure we have your order ready for you.
