1. PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS
1.1 We and our suppliers have a policy of continuous product development and reserve the right to amend the specifications of any goods or products without prior notice in relation to future sales. This includes adjustments to sizes or ornamental detailing on individual items purchased. Please email or call ahead to check exact sizes or potential ornamental changes as on occasions minor adjustments may have been made by our supplier.
1.2 Products supplied may differ as a consequence from those on display or advertised. Unless agreed with you, the products supplied will be of equivalent value, functionality and appearance.
1.3 All our boxes are made from quality natural wood and accordingly appearances may vary. Some woods will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight. When you are purchasing our boxes you are buying handmade items where varying degrees of distressing is generally 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. Certain degrees of filler will be used on the wood and this is common and very much part of the manufacturing process. Please note that our items are usually of a 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.
1.4 Leather products are made from quality natural leather and accordingly they may not be uniform in colour or texture. Only the finest hides are selected but they will show natural marks and scars on the hide.
1.5 We endeavour to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on the website. However we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy of the pictures or photographs that are shown. Many conditions such as monitor settings and batching can affect the colouring of items in a picture.
1.6 From time to time we have a specifically marked section of our site marked as clearance ranges, when you purchase items from a clearance/discontinued range please note that this stock is new and boxed. The items are from a discontinued range and as such are being sold as seconds. These items may have been excessively handled so may have knocks, scratches or other defects due to being over handled. The sale price takes this into consideration.
1.7 Our solid hardwood may require treating immediately upon receipt. If recommended to do so, please treat your furniture immediately on delivery as your item may have been in shipping for some time and modern home heating will accelerate the drying process. Failure to treat your wood furniture as instructed will result in drying and cracking.
1.8 Please note on rare occasions due to extreme climate changes in shipping you may find slight swelling on doors or drawers thus making them stiff to open, it is important not to return or refuse the item if this is the case. Usually this will rectify itself within a week once the timbers adjust to their new environment and heating conditions, you may also find that simply swapping the drawers will remedy this. However, on rare occasions the timber movement may not settle and you may need to sand or shave a small amount from a section. If you do not wish to undertake any adjustments needed and wish to return the item we will of course offer a refund under our full 7 day moneyback offer.
