2 Product Specifications
2.1 All our furniture is made from quality natural wood and accordingly appearances may vary. So you can be certain you are cleaning and caring for your product in the correct way we would advise you to read the care instructions that are included with your furniture as soon as you accept delivery and to contact us if you require further information before you carry out any furniture care.
2.2 Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When you are purchasing our furniture you are buying handmade furniture where varying degrees of distressing is often applied. This is very much intended and makes each piece totally individual as desired by the craftsmen. We sell only genuine rustic designs with varying degrees of distressing from piece to piece; this may involve wood splits, wood filling, knots, purpose distress/scratch marks, antiquing etc etc. Certain degrees of filler will be used on oak furniture this is common and very much part of the manufacturing process. Please note that our Indian items are usually of a very rustic nature and a heavy distressing is usually applied, this may appear as a dulling or rubbing effect to the waxed finish, knotty and grainy woods are used, this is as intended by the supplier.
2.3 The majority of our products are sold fully assembled, however on occasion certain pieces will need minimal assembly, this has been deemed fit to protect the item in carriage and/or to facilitate transport of the furniture into your home. All items needing assembly will have instructions included.
2.4 We endeavour to display on the website the colours of our products that appear as accurately as possible. However we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy of the pictures or photographs that are shown. Many conditions such as monitor settings and camera lighting can affect the colouring of items in a picture. Similarly natural wood colour can vary from tree to tree and an exact colour match for solid wood products cannot be guaranteed.
2.5 Made to order items are made to the specification listed on the product page. No customisations are possible.
2.6 Furniture Designs and Characteristics
By placing an order with us, you are acknowledging the following:
- That on occasion, we may alter the designs or sizes of pieces slightly. We cannot accept these as faults but you can return the item with all original carriage charges and collections costs being at the buyer’s expense. If the item is for a specific purpose please be sure to email ahead before ordering to check that there are no specific changes that could affect its material usage.
- The majority of our furniture is hand crafted, and as a consequence, all sizes are offered as a guide only. We reserve the right to change specifications without prior notice.
- It is virtually impossible to accurately portray the actual colour of natural wood products or upholstery fabric in a web picture, due to differing screen resolutions, and natural variations from batch to batch and piece to piece.
With regards to our wood furniture, we endeavour to give the best portrayal of colour, but we cannot accept colour or shade differences as evidence of defects. As a general rule, dark items look lighter in reality, and light items look darker in reality. A close match is more likely if two or more items are purchased at the same time because they more likely to come from the same batch, however this cannot be relied apon or guarenteed.
- If you wish to return an item because of a shade difference or any other reason, we are willing to offer a refund as long as we are informed within 14 days. However, original carriage charges and collection costs will be at the Customer’s expense, and the returned item must be resellable as ‘brand new’ as per the terms stated in the 'Returns' section.
We will not accept any liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of incorrect or incomplete measurements or information supplied by you, or minor alterations made by the supplier. Please email ahead of placing your order if a small change in size may deem the item unusable when it arrives.
All dimensions specified by us are approximate.
