We cannot accept substitute or alternative items by way of returns nor are we able to send them back to you, so please look closely at “the item(s)” you return to us.

Delivery of larger items such as furniture can vary depending on the shipping service used from 14 working days to 30 working days*. More remote areas of the world can take longer. We will always advise you if this is the case.
* 14 to 30 working day delivery overseas / outside the UK on larger items is purely a guide and is based on differing air freight and sea freight services and whether the service elected is to port of arrival only or door to door.
