4.  OUR PRODUCTS

4.1 Products may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. Although we have made every effort to be as accurate as possible, because our products are handmade and fillings and fabrics have different stretch and compression qualities all sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website have a 3% tolerance. We strongly recommend that customers take advantage of our free sample service before committing to purchase. If you do purchase an item and have not previously ordered a swatch to ensure the colour is correct, you may not return it due to the colour being not as expected.

4.2  Some of our upholstered headboards and other products are made using fabrics and timbers which may mellow with age and exposure to sunlight.

4.3  Leather products are made from natural leather and consequently they may not be completely uniform in appearance. Only the finest leather is used but it may show natural marks on the hide. Some leathers will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight and heat.

4.4 Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.

4.5 The requirement for additional information. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the Contract (and clause 13.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it. For these purposes a ‘reasonable time’ shall be taken to be 7 working days from the date the information is requested unless otherwise agreed, time being of the essence.

5.  MEASUREMENTS

5.1  Making sure your measurements are accurate. If we are making the product to measurements you have given us you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. You can find information and tips on how to measure on our website or by contacting us.

5.2 It is your responsibility to ensure that the furniture ordered will pass freely through any planned access into your room. In the event of our delivery team not being able to deliver your Order to your room of choice, the Goods will be left in a secure area at your home for you to arrange the necessary specialist removals at your own expense.

5.3 Ordering a valance. If you are ordering a valance, you are responsible for ensuring that you have informed us of the correct valance measurements including length width and drop height. Your valance will be manufactured to the dimensions that you give us and may not be returned for a refund if you subsequently found you have measured incorrectly.

6.  RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES

6.1 Your rights to make changes. If you wish to make a change to the product you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the product, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the Contract (see clause 11 - Your rights to end the Contract).

6.2 Our rights to make changes. We may make changes to the product:

(a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and

7.2 When you become responsible for the Goods. The Goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to the address you gave to us.

8.  PRICE AND PAYMENT

8.1 Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your Order. We take reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 8.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the product you order.

8.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

8.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your Order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Order. If we accept and process your Order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require the return of any Goods provided to you.

8.4 When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Visa, Mastercard, Delta, American Express, Paypal and BACS (our account details are shown on your invoice) You must pay for the products at the time of ordering, if your payment is in parts, the final balance must be settled before we will deliver them.
