The terms ‘you’ and ‘your’ refer to you, the user of the website.

Your use of this website to make a purchase and your use of the content within it are subject to the following terms and conditions.

 

1. MAKING A PURCHASE

You can make a purchase from our website by searching, browsing and adding products to the shopping basket. You then have the option to place your order online or should you not wish to submit your personal details online then you may purchase directly from us by telephoning 01604 759755, however we will still need to take details from you in order to fulfil the sales transaction.

All goods must be paid for in full before they are despatched. If you place your order online you will be transferred to a secure payment page operated by NatWest Sage Pay. On this page you can enter your payment details. Your account will not be debited until you click on the 'Confirm Payment' button.

Once we have received your payment your purchase will be picked* and packed then dispatched to your designated address.

*Please see colour representation below.

 

2. OUT OF STOCK ITEMS

We try our best to ensure that all the items listed on our website are in stock, on occasion though, due to items being sold in store or our suppliers being out of stock, we may not physically have a certain item in stock. In this instance we will notify you by e-mail with an estimated delivery date for your chosen item or to offer an alternative product or offer a full refund. You are more than welcome to contact us prior to purchase to see if your chosen product is in stock.

 

3. DELIVERY OF YOUR ORDER

Our standard delivery is free to UK mainland destinations, and takes place between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. We are not able to specify a delivery timeslot on standard deliveries.

We aim to deliver your order within 2 - 3 working days of receiving your payment. If your order cannot be delivered within this period we will contact you by telephone or email to reconfirm a delivery time or give you the option to cancel your order without any penalty.

Our delivery partners require that you sign for your order upon delivery. We will only leave your order without a signature if you contact us in writing stating that you will take full responsibility for the goods in the event that they go missing or become damaged as a result of being left without a signature.

In the event that you are not present to receive your order our couriers may try and leave your order with a neighbour. If you do not wish for your order to be left with a neighbour please contact us and we will instruct our couriers to deliver to your address only.

In the event that a delivery is attempted and you are not available to sign for the goods our couriers may attempt to redeliver the order at another time, however they are not contractually obliged to do so.

Our couriers in some instances may leave a card requesting you to contact them to rearrange the delivery on an alternate weekday or to collect the order in person from their depot where it will be held for 5 working days. You must contact the couriers within this period to re-arrange delivery. Failure to do this may result in your order being returned to ourselves.

We reserve the right to charge for redelivery or to deduct the courier’s delivery charge from any refund due should you then decide to cancel the order (although we offer free delivery our delivery partners do not).

We are reliant on our delivery partners to fulfil the delivery of your order and therefore cannot be held responsible for any error incurred on their part. In the unusual event that a delivery is missed or an error made by our courier then please contact us and we will endeavour to resolve the issue.

 

4. COLOUR REPRESENTATION

We take every care to show a realistic representation of colour. However due to lighting conditions and variation in computer screen output it is sometimes difficult to achieve this and any reference to colour is given as a guidance only. We do not accept any responsibility for colour misrepresentations and often, due to multiple repeat items (especially with furniture where shading and grain patterns vary and handmade and hand dyed rugs where shading varies from piece to piece) we will not guarantee that the item shown on screen will be the exact item you receive. 

You can still receive a refund if the item doesn’t suit, however it will not be deemed as faulty and you will be responsible to the full cost of returning it to us. If you would like more pictures of any of our items before purchasing then please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

5. RETURNING AN ITEM

Under the Distance Selling Regulations you may return any item purchased from us for a full refund of the original purchase price, so long as you inform us within 7 working days of the day your order is delivered. We request that the goods are then returned within 14 working days. You are responsible for arranging the safe return and the return costs. Provided the item is returned unused in the same condition as it was sent we will issue you with a full refund by the original payment method once your return has been received and checked. If an item is returned to us used, dirty or damaged no refund will be issued.

Return Instructions

Please contact us within 7 working days of receipt of your order and inform us that you wish to return your order, you do not have to state a reason but it helps us if you can give one, even if you have just changed your mind. We will confirm receipt of your returns request by email and are happy to recommend a suitable courier and give you any information the courier may need in order to facilitate the return of your item. We request that the goods are then returned, to be received by us within 14 working days. You can also return the item in person directly to our warehouse at:

3 Cornhill Close, Lodge Farm, Northampton, NN5 7UB

When returning your item/items you must ensure that it/they are satisfactorily and safely wrapped in waterproof packaging or preferably in the original delivery packaging (do not use thin plastic such as bin liners) and are clearly labelled with our address on the front.  You must also include your information within the returned package so we can identify where it has come from (a copy of the original order is preferable). Failure to do any of the above may delay your refund and in some cases no refund will be issued if goods have been badly wrapped and are soiled or damaged whilst in transit.

The return of your order is not our responsibility and should any goods go missing in transit whilst being returned to us then we will not be able to reimburse you and any claim should be made by you to your chosen courier. Please ensure that you use a return courier which allows you to obtain proof of delivery to ourselves and ensure you are insured for the value of the goods should they be lost or damaged.

 

6. DELIVERY ERRORS & SHORTAGES

In the unlikely event that the wrong item is delivered or that there is a shortage in your order then please contact us immediately and we will offer the following solutions: Should the wrong item have been sent in error we will arrange for  a collection and on receipt the correct item will be despatched and delivered at your convenience (we will contact you to discuss the best time for you).

Any shortages with your delivery (once checked against our despatch records) will be made good.

 

7. YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER

Under the ‘Distance Selling Regulations’ you have a 7 working day cooling off period in which you may cancel your order. You can cancel your order at any time before dispatch by contacting us in writing or should your goods have already been dispatched then upon receiving them please contact us in writing stating that you wish to return them and then follow our guidelines in section 5 for returning your order.

a. The goods you have ordered are unavailable for any reason;
