Terms & Conditions
By using or accessing our website and/or placing any order(s), you agree to be legally bound by these terms and conditions. If you do not wish to be bound by these terms and conditions, then you may not use or access our website or place orders. These terms relate to sales over the internet or telephone with A5 Furnishings. The contract made by you online with us incorporates these terms and conditions, which shall prevail over all terms and conditions proposed by you.
You should not proceed with your order until you have read and agreed to these terms and conditions.
1. Product specifications
1.1 We and our suppliers have a policy of continuous product development and reserve the right to amend the specifications of any goods or products without prior notice in relation to future sales. This includes adjustments to measurements or ornamental detailing on individual items purchased. Please email to check exact measurements or potential ornamental changes as on occasions minor adjustments may have been made by ourselves or by our supplier.
1.2 Products supplied may differ consequently from those on display or advertised. Unless agreed with you, the products supplied will be of equivalent value, functionality and appearance.
1.3 All of our products are 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 pieces 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 only genuine 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 with pine, oak and mango furniture; this is common and very much a part of the manufacturing process.
1.4 Leather products are made from quality natural leather and accordingly they may not be uniform in colour or texture. Only the best hides are selected but they will show natural marks and scars on the hide.
1.5 We endeavour to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear in our showrooms, on our website and other promotional materials. However, we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy of the pictures or photographs that are shown. Many conditions such as monitor settings and batching can affect the colouring of items in a picture.
1.6 From time to time we may promote items within a specifically marked section of our website, marked as clearance ranges. When you purchase items from a clearance/discontinued range, please note that this stock is new and boxed. The items are from a discontinued range and as such are being sold as seconds. These items have been excessively handled so may have knocks, scratches or other defects due to being over handled. The sale price takes this into consideration, however where uncertain we would advise emailing us directly to confirm the current condition of an item before purchase.
1.7 At A5 Furnishings, most of our products are designed with no home assembly needed; this excludes any self-assembly items or easy-assembly items as labelled online or in-store. On occasions to aid in delivery or to avoid damage, our designers have deemed it best that certain items will need minimal home assembly such as wardrobes and tables. However, all dining tables and beds will need some assembly and any handles for the product may be on the inside of the drawers and doors. Items needing minimal home assembly will be clearly identified in the individual item description. Our furniture designers have to the best of their ability ensured any assembly is as simple as possible and in no way detracts from the quality or structural integrity of the product. We do not unbox or assemble any of your furniture items, as our drivers operate to a strict timetable. It is important that any other deliveries that day are met on time. Please note that we cannot facilitate the removal of any of your packaging. We will not accept any liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of incorrect or incomplete measurements or information supplied by you, or minor alterations made by the supplier. Please email ahead if a small change in size may deem the item unusable.
1.8 Please note on rare occasions, due to extreme climate changes in shipping, you may find slight swelling on doors or drawers, thus making them stiff to open. It is important not to return or refuse the item if this is the case. Usually this will rectify itself within a week 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 look of the furniture. A simple touch of furniture wax will then protect any adjustments made. Please be aware that you are purchasing natural timber products where slight timber movement in shipping is a slim possibility. Therefore, stiff drawers or doors will not be deemed as faulty or defective. This means you are purchasing our furniture on the understanding that any necessary simple adjustments need to be undertaken by you at your expense.
2.1 All dimensions specified by us are approximate due to the items being handmade and within a tolerance range.
2.2 We will not accept any liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of incorrect or incomplete measurements or information supplied by you, or minor alterations made by the supplier. Please email ahead if a small change in size may deem the item unusable.
3. Bespoke Orders
3.1 When placing an order for bespoke furniture please ensure that the measurements you have provided are correct as these items will be made to your specifications. If the measurements that you have provided are incorrect resulting in the furniture not fitting in required spaces etc, A refund will not be issued.
