Stock Availability/Lead Times
Most items are available immediately while others are made to order and will therefore be subject to longer lead times to despatch. For all items we sell, please check the ‘Delivery Options’ tab on the main product page for lead time to despatch and any additional delivery information specific to that product.
If an item you have your eye on disappears don’t panic! Unless discontinued or a unique find, it may simply have gone out of stock. We temporarily remove out of stock items from the website until they become available again. Pop us an email at [email protected] if you wish to be notified of the date an item is likely to be back in stock.
Confirmation of Order/Payment
Once you have placed your order, you will receive an order confirmation email from us, detailing your purchase. This email is only a confirmation that we have received your order/payment. We reserve the right to contact you by phone and/or email at the earliest opportunity should there be any problem with your order (e.g. goods being unexpectedly delayed or unavailable), stating the new lead time and/or revised delivery date as well as giving you the option of a partial or full refund should you prefer.
Orders placed on weekends or public holidays will be processed during the next business day. Orders placed after 1pm (UK time) on business days will begin processing on the following business day. Our suppliers endeavour to despatch in stock items within one working day of your order being placed, however during busier periods this may take a little longer.
You will receive a further email from us to inform you when your item has shipped. Depending on the despatch method, you may receive tracking/delivery updates from the supplier’s third party courier service with regards to delivery (see below for more information). All items will require a signature on delivery.
If you wish to edit or cancel an order in any way, please notify us immediately either by telephone or email. If the product has already shipped, you will need to instruct a return in the normal way to obtain your refund (see below) but you will be liable for outbound and return shipping costs.
Product Specific Information
In addition to the general delivery windows stated below, please refer to the ‘Delivery Options’ tab on the relevant product page for delivery information specific to your product.
Regional Delivery Charges
Where possible we try to absorb a proportion of the delivery costs to all of the regions we serve, within our product pricing structures. To keep things simple, we offer flat rate delivery charges for each of the regions we serve, on a per order basis. If you order multiple items within a single order, only one delivery charge will be applied to the total, according to your delivery region. We currently deliver most products to the countries and regions listed below within the following timescales.
delivery to MAINLAND UK – NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE [3-5 business days] with some exceptions*
DELIVERY TO UK OFFSHORE IS £10 PER ORDER [3-7 BUSINESS DAYS] – SEE LIST OF REGIONS BELOW
Delivery to MAINLAND Europe is £10 per order [3-7 business days] – see country list below
Delivery to MAINLAND US & Canada is £30 per order [5-10 business days] WITH SOME EXCEPTIONS*
*Exceptions to ‘UK delivery without any additional charge’, include UK offshore (see separate delivery charge stated above), expedited delivery (if this is an option for your chosen item/s) and delivery of non-standard products (i.e. products that are considered to be extremely fragile, high value, large, heavy, or something that has exceptional delivery requirements). Non-standard products may require a specialist courier service. If your product falls within this category, this will be stated on the relevant product page under the ‘Delivery Options’ tab and you may need to call us directly to request a shipping quote. Longer lead times may also apply. At present, we are unable to deliver certain floor and table lamps to mainland US/Canada. If this is the case, it will be noted under the ‘Delivery Options’ tab on the relevant product page.
Mainland UK delivery includes England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland. UK offshore regions include Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. European countries we currently serve are: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland. Whilst customs duties or import/sales taxes are not applied on items sold to residents of EU member states, duties and additional taxes (i.e. import VAT) may be payable on receipt of packages delivered to countries outside this economic area (N.B. some of the European countries we serve are not EU member states). In such cases, customers are responsible for the payment of any such duties and taxes which may become payable on entry to the relevant country, prior to delivery of goods to their end destination.
Although we do not routinely offer goods for sale to addresses outside of: the United Kingdom; the European countries listed above; mainland United States; and, Canada, it is very much our ambition to do so. Stay tuned for flat rate delivery into more countries/regions in the near future! For serious shoppers based outside of these areas, please contact us at [email protected] for individual, tailored shipping quotes. We will endeavour to source the best possible shipping solutions and rates to meet your needs.
Method of Despatch
Most products are dispatched direct from our suppliers. Orders are delivered by Royal Mail or by parcel courier. Some larger items may require specialist carriers (this will be detailed under the ‘Delivery Options’ tab on the relevant product page). Shipping times can therefore vary within the above time frames, and orders containing more than one product may arrive in multiple packages, at different times.
Depending on the despatch method, you may receive further delivery updates from our supplier’s third party courier service either by text, telephone or email with regards to delivery. All items will require a signature on delivery. If you miss a delivery, the relevant courier company will either attempt re-delivery on a consecutive day, contact you directly to arrange re-delivery or leave a note asking you to call to arrange re-delivery. If re-delivery is unsuccessful and the item is returned back to us/our supplier, we may need to charge you, in order for to instruct a new delivery. Should you have any difficulties or issues with regards to the delivery of your items, don’t hesitate to contact us either by phone Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 5.30pm on 01753 384 295 or alternatively by email at [email protected] and we will do our best to assist and resolve the situation.
Very occasionally, unavoidable factors can delay a parcel (for example, bad weather or postal strikes). Should an item become substantially delayed or unavailable for whatever reason after purchase, we will notify you by email at the earliest opportunity, stating the likely lead time and/or revised delivery date as well as giving you the option of a partial or full refund should you prefer.

We will then send you an email with a returns form to print out, complete and enclose with your returns package and a pre-paid returns postage label for the Collect+ or DPD network of shops or for your local Post Office branch, depending on the most cost effective option for the item/size of package being returned and the drop point’s proximity to your address. If you are returning multiple items you may receive more than one returns label. Please ensure the correct label is attached to each package – contact us if you are at all unsure or have any other queries. Please note you are liable for the returns shipping cost and this will be deducted from your refund, once accepted by us (see below).
We make no profit from the pre-paid return shipping labels generated for UK returns and will charge you the sum charged to us by the relevant courier service, up to a maximum of £10 (or whichever is the lesser). The relevant amount will be deducted from your refund.

Collection time slots will be booked for the first available date and within three weeks. Unfortunately, we are currently able to offer a returns collection service for non-standard products only and from UK addresses only. Returns of this nature will be charged at a flat rate of £30.
