Description of Goods

It is the responsibility of the customer to check that their order is confirmed correctly.

Dimensions of all products are available on the The-bed & Sofa Home website and the customer should satisfy themselves that the goods will fit into their property as intended.

Products pictured on the website may be photographed with other items which are not included in the product description. Photographs are for illustrative purposes only.

Upholstered Furniture

Our upholstered range is made to order, fabric is received in batches - this means there may be a slight variation in the colour of each batch, although we work hard to ensure they are as consistent as possible we cannot guarantee every batch of a fabric will be identical.

As each item is handmade, measurements provided are not exact and can vary by a few centimetres.

We do not accept responsibility for any fading or discoloration that may occur due to exposure to direct or indirect sunlight.

We also do not accept responsibility for fading or discoloration that may occur due to exposure from chemicals which are sprayed on or near your furniture.

We recommend that your furniture is always cleaned by professional upholstery cleaners.

Bespoke Orders

Any order that has been customised to your own preferences is classed as a bespoke order (eg change of size/choosing a non standard fabric/adding extra detailing). You can contact us by phone or email to place bespoke order, an order confirmation will be sent to you via email once all details have been finalised.

All bespoke orders must be paid for in full before your order is placed into production.

Once a bespoke order has been placed it cannot be changed or cancelled. Bespoke orders are not covered under our 14 day return policy and therefore cannot be returned or exchanged, so please ensure you have adequate clearance and access to fit your chosen item into your property, through any doorways/corridors and turns in the corridors or stairs.

If you have provided your own fabric, it must be delivered to us on a roll. It is your responsibility to ensure that it is suitable for furniture upholstery and that it is fire proofed in line with British safety standards. Our manufacturers will use their discretion as to the best way to upholster your furniture, unless you specify otherwise. If you require any surplus fabric to be sent with your furniture then it must be specified in writing.

Payment and Pricing

The-bed & sofa Home accepts payment from credit and debit cards. We also accept payment by other methods, such as bank transfers, cash and cheque. All product prices include VAT at the prevailing rate.

We cannot change the delivery address for orders paid with PayPal, we can only deliver to the address on the order confirmation.

The buyer has the right to cancel their order for a full refund.

Please remember that it is the customers responsibility to check that all items will fit through doors and staircases in their packaging. If an order is returned on the day of delivery due to issues with access, then the order is subject to a £50 restocking charge. Access checks can be arranged before you order if you are unsure if an item will fit into your property.

Delivery of larger items will generally be arranged by telephone or email to ensure a delivery date is agreed with the customer. Where this is the case, The-bed & Sofa Home reserves the right to charge a minimum of £50 for delivery if the agreed delivery fails because the customer is not present to accept delivery.

Our delivery partners can provide a specialist delivery for awkward property access or if more than two people are required - quotations can be provided at the time if required.

For items that are being delivered above the third floor and there is no access to a suitable lift there is a charge of £30 per floor per item. It is your responsibility to inform the delivery team that access is above the third floor when delivery is being arranged - if they are not informed you will be given the option to have the goods delivered to the entrance of your building or returned to the warehouse. A restocking fee will apply.

On the day of delivery it is the customers responsibility to ensure floors are covered and any light fixtures, photographs, ornaments etc are removed before the delivery team arrives. If when the delivery team arrives on site and feel that access may be tight for the product that is being delivered, they will discuss this with you at the time and ask you to sign a waiver if you still request for delivery to be attempted.

Any damages must be reported to the delivery team whilst they are still on site and noted on the delivery paperwork. Any claims after they have left your property will not be considered.
