1 Description of products:
All products available for purchase are described on their specific product page on our Website. We always try to represent as accurately as possible every characteristic of the products via photography and descriptions provided by us, suppliers or manufacturers.
We have a policy of continuous product development, so we can provide you with what we consider to be the best designs at the best price, and thus reserve the right to amend the specifications of products, their price, packaging and any service associated at any time, without prior notice. Before ordering, we thus invite you to have a close look at the product description and characteristics: We choose them with care in order to provide you with the best offer in the market, but every product is different and we do provide customisation and one offs. Some of our products are made of natural woods etc. so may vary according to their natural properties.
We make it our primary objective to provide you with the best images and descriptions, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee that colours and details in Website images are 100% accurate representations of the product, and due to the handmade nature of many products, in some cases the sizes might be approximate.
Even if not always mentioned, some self-assembly may be required on certain products.
