A. Product Specifications
A.1 All our furniture is 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 furniture you are buying handmade furniture 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 some ranges which are 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 Indian, sheesham and oak furniture, this is common and very much part of the manufacturing process. Please note that our Indian items are usually of a very 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. Sheesham wood, which is used in the Jali and Cuba Sheesham ranges is characterised by contrasting light and dark wood tones. The variety and patterning of the tones is unique to each piece and this is very much part of the natural appeal of these rustic pieces.
A.2 Painted furniture has small shakes and indentations in our paint finishes are perfectly normal and not classed as faults, please remember that in most cases the paint is covering wood and so is likely to sink into air pockets in the timber. Over time and in heated environments the timber will flex this might cause a small amount of cracking on the joints which is perfectly normal.
A.3 Although every care is taken to ensure our products are able to handle temperature and humidity changes, the conditions of your premises can affect the wooden products you buy from us. Your items can experience small movements and cracks as it adjusts - this is not a fault, but a natural occurrence within the fibres of a natural product.
A.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 blemishes on the hide.

F. Returns, Refunds, Exchange and Your Right to Cancel
F.1 Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 you have the statutory right to return any products you have purchased within 14 calendar days after delivery for any reason. Products must be kept in the same condition as when purchased and in the same packaging, in which they were delivered, see below for further details.
Please note on rare occasions due to changes in climate you may find swelling on doors or drawers thus making them stiff to open or they may not close, it is important not to return or refuse the item if this is case. Usually this will rectify itself 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 drawer or door, if so please shave from the bottom of the drawer front or from the side of the door as this will not be noticeable with regards to the appearance of the furniture. A simple touch of furniture wax will then protect any adjustments made. Also due to changes in atmosphere and humidity levels in different seasons of the year, you may occasionally get movement or splitting occurring in solid wood furniture, these can be rectified by using appropriate wood filler and stains. Please could we ask you to bear in mind that you are purchasing natural timber products where slight timber movement is a slim possibility. Therefore stiff drawers or doors that will not shut and wood movement or splitting will not be deemed as faulty or defective. This means you are purchasing our furniture on the understanding that any necessary simple adjustments would need to be undertaken by the customer at the customer’s expense. 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 14 day money back offer. Please take care to research all the above points further with your local specialist as to avoid any disputes after purchase.
F.2 Products may be returned for any reason including if you simply change your mind. In order to return/exchange a product, please contact us in writing or other durable medium (including email) within 14 days after delivery. Our courier will then contact you to arrange a date for the collection of your order. You will then be entitled to a refund or exchange from us, which will be paid within 14 days from the date you requested your order to be cancelled and refunded. Items must be kept in the condition in which they were purchased and in original packaging. Items requiring assembly must not be assembled in any way or they will not be accepted as a return. We reserve the right to refuse a refund if any item is deemed to be non re-sellable. The returns charge is £25 for small items, £49 for 1-3 large items and £59 for 4-6 large items. You only pay one returns charge per order which will be deducted from your refund.
If you cancel an order; we will refund your payment less any initial delivery charge plus an additional returns charge and surcharge(where applicable) for the goods to be returned back to our warehouse.
For items that are faulty the returns charge does not apply. For returns/exchange we will arrange for our courier to collect the item/s from you. For postcodes that carry surcharges, there will be an additional surcharge for returning/exchanging the goods. Please contact us for details.
If you received Free Delivery for an order over £400 and you want to return/exchange any items from the single/multiple item order, we will have to calculate the total order value for the remaining item/items again to verify the order value are still over £400 for Free Delivery to be applicable. If new order value is less than £400; the delivery cost will be applicable.
For returns, where the goods had been collected from our warehouse by you or your own third-party carrier arranged through LSFW Ltd or yourself; they would need to be returned to our warehouse using your own third-party courier arranged through LSFW Ltd or yourself.
F.3 If you have taken advantage of our Packaging Removal & Recycle service, we ask you to thoroughly check your furniture before signing for delivery. In the unlikely event of there being a problem, the driver will repack and remove the item. If goods are found to be faulty or you change your mind at a later date; then the product would need to be adequately packaged for safe return to us. The responsibility of repackaging the item and the cost will be with the customer. A guide to the minimum type/standard of packaging to be used fit for safe return will be sent to you. Once the goods have been packaged from your end; please email us photos of the packaged goods so that we can arrange a suitable time for collection.
F.4 If you have paid for "Above Ground Level Delivery" your PROPERTY (House/Flat/Apartment etc is not on ground level-when placing the order; this service will only be applied on the first delivery.
