You are responsible for ensuring that the information You provide to Us is correct (including Your email address and delivery address for the Products ordered), otherwise We may not be able to confirm Your order and deliver the Products to You.
We will send You as soon as possible an email to the email address You have provided to Us confirming receipt of Your order, Your payment, Your order number and personal details (“Order Acknowledgement”).
No order has been accepted by Us until We have received payment from You or a third party finance provider and have sent You an Order Acknowledgement. A contract will be formed when We accept Your order in accordance with this paragraph but You will still have the right of cancellation in accordance with section 9 below.

We cannot authorise Your payment;
You are not allowed to purchase the Products from Us;

There has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the Products.
Our furniture is made from different material and accordingly appearances may vary. Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When we use natural wood the furniture may have wood splits, wood filling, knots etc. This does not affect Your statutory rights and as such, if You believe that the condition of the Product(s) delivered to be faulty or not as described, then please read section 9 below.
5.Knives and Age Restrictive Products

Up to 30 days: if the Products are faulty, then You can get an immediate refund.
Up to 6 months: if the Products can’t be repaired or replaced, then You are entitled to a full refund, in most cases.
Thereafter if the Products do not last a reasonable length of time You may be entitled to some money back.
12. Guarantees and claims under guarantee
The provisions of this section apply in addition to Your statutory consumer rights in relation to faulty or not as described Products. These rights are not affected by the guarantee.
We guarantee all Products against faulty workmanship and/or faulty materials for a period of 12 months from the actual date of delivery. In all cases We reserve the right to inspect the Product and verify the fault.
These guarantees do not cover fair wear and tear and natural characteristics of wooden Products including movement in wooden Products; neglect; abuse or misuse of Your Products in failing to follow correct care procedures as outlined in the Owner’s Manual including the waxing of furniture; loss or damage due to fire, smoke, water, lightning, sunlight, weather, rusting, corrosion, theft or explosion; accidental damage or loss or damage caused by a third party.
Should You agree, We will arrange to repair a defective Product free of charge. Alternatively, at Our sole discretion, an allowance may be made for You to arrange a local repair. We reserve the right to offer a refund if a repair is not acceptable. If a repair is not possible or practical, We will offer You, at Our discretion, a replacement or a refund. Should a replacement no longer be available or circumstances determined by Us make a replacement impractical, it may be replaced with a part that closely matches it. We reserve the right to send out an independent third party furniture specialist to inspect and, if You agree, repair Your furniture.
If a refund is given under the terms of the 12 month guarantee, We reserve the right to deduct from the refund a reasonable amount in line with the amount of use You have had from the Product, prior to reporting the fault.
