Delivery & Returns


Delivery Times

As we are a small business selling designer furnishings sourced from all over the world, delivery times vary from item to item. However, we are able to estimate delivery for the following groupings in the UK:

    • In Stock

If an item is physically in our Crystal Palace showroom or our warehouse, we can guarantee delivery within 3-5 working days within the UK.

If an item is in stock, it is marked as such on our website with a green “In stock” message.

    • Supplier Order

To offer a wider range of beautiful items, we also sell pieces on our website which are not physically in our shop or warehouse, but have to be ordered in from specialist, often international, suppliers. As such delivery times vary from supplier to supplier and we can only guarantee delivery between 2-6 weeks. We will always contact you to inform you of the status of your delivery for these orders.

Products on our site which are coming in from suppliers are not marked with a green “In stock” message.

    • Sofas and large furniture

All our sofas are handmade to order from a specialist suppliers. To ensure the sofas are of the highest quality and are securely shipped, we estimate a delivery period of between 8 to 10 weeks.

We can delivery anywhere in the world, however as we are a small business we do not have a fixed shipping arrangement for international orders. If you would like an item delivered outside the UK, please contact us and we’ll arrange delivery especially for you.

Delivery Delays

We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time-scales, however deliveries are occasionally late due to unforeseen factors, such as the availability of items and the delivery arrangements of our international suppliers.
