Product Information
Wood is a natural material, and because of this it will have a variety of grain patterns, colours, textures, knots, etc. even in individual pieces from the same tree. Solid wood will also move slightly when exposed to varying levels of humidity, this movement is totally natural, and cannot be regarded as a defect. Items where the photo is taken of the individual item, you will receive that item, but again, please beware there may be slight movement and colour changes in the wood for the reasons mentioned above. In particular, the oak table lamps can occasionally show new cracks as they acclimatise to the very dry atmosphere of a modern house, these cracks are extremely unlikely to cause any structural problems with the wood and cannot be regarded as a defect.

Items where a generic photo has been taken of the product, this photo should be seen as a guide to what you will receive, the wood colour, grain pattern shape, are all unique to each and every item.

Specifications, design and detail of all of our designs may be altered without notice.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information presented on this website. We shall not be held liable for the consequences, accidents, or special damages arising from any inaccuracy of the information presented. Product photos, descriptions and prices are non-contractual.

Stock Levels
Our stock control system is live, but it can very occasionally happen that even though an item is shown in stock, we do not actually have it in stock. This can be caused by two people trying to buy the item at the same time, or if we sell the item off line (telephone order etc.) and the stock control is not yet updated. Should this happen, we will always contact you with the estimated delivery date and the option to amend or cancel your order.

Special Orders and Out of Stock Items
When ordering items to be made for you we will give you an approximate delivery date at the time of the order, this may vary depending on our current workload, and the availability of your chosen wood type. Please leave plenty of time if you need your order for a specific date. For larger or very unusual items we may require a deposit at the time of ordering, this will be made clear beforehand.

Smaller items that are out of stock are usually made in batches and replacement stock will be made as soon as possible. If an item is out of stock that you require, please let us know, we may be able to shift our plans to make this item before others.

Validity Period of Offer and Prices
Our offers and prices are valid for the day the site is consulted and are subject to change without notice.

Delivery Terms
Products are delivered to the address specified by the customer on the purchase order and only to geographic zones that we service.

All products leave our premises in perfect condition. The customer must notify the carrier (or postman) of even the slightest trace of damage (holes, signs of crushing, etc.) to the parcel, and refuse the package if necessary or at the very lease only sign for the item after having declared the packaging damaged on the drivers form. A new, identical product will then be sent to the customer at no additional charge or in the case of a one off item, you will be offered a similar item or a refund.

No exchanges can be made at a later time for goods claiming to be damaged during carriage without notification at the time of reception.

As with any shipment, a delay or loss of goods is possible. In such a case, the carrier shall start an investigation. Every effort is made, for as long as necessary, to find the package. If the package is not found, the carrier will reimburse THE MERCHANT, who will deliver a new, identical package to the customer free of charge, or in the case of a one off item, you will be offered a similar item or a refund.

We shall not be held responsible for delayed delivery times due to the carrier, including for the loss of goods, bad weather or strikes.

Loss or Damage in Transit
THE MERCHANT will not be responsible for damage or loss of goods or part thereof in transit or for any discrepancy between the goods delivered and the goods ordered unless the customer gives written or email notice of a claim to THE MERCHANT and the carrier within two (2) business days of delivery.

In the event of damage of goods or part thereof in transit or for any discrepancy between the goods delivered and the goods ordered, the customer must hold the goods and make them available for inspection or collection by THE MERCHANT or its representatives on request.

Delivery Errors
The customer must inform THE MERCHANT immediately (the same day or, at the latest, the first business day following delivery) concerning any claim of delivery error or non-conformity of goods, in kind or in quality, compared with the information on the purchase order.

Any claim made after this time period will be rejected. All claims must be made in writing or email.

Any claim that does not respect the rules defined in all of the above conditions cannot be taken into account and releases THE MERCHANT of any responsibility to the customer.

In the case of delivery error, all goods to be exchanged or refunded must be returned to THE MERCHANT in whole, in its original packaging and in perfect condition to THE MERCHANT ADDRESS.

For claims to be accepted, the customer must first make a declaration to THE MERCHANT concerning any returns and receive and THE MERCHANT's consent. If accepted, the customer will ship the package to THE MERCHANT ADDRESS.

Shipping fees shall be at THE MERCHANT's expense, except in the case where the goods do not correspond to the original declaration made by the customer concerning the return.

Warranty
The provisions hereof cannot deprive the customer of their right to legal warranty requiring THE MERCHANT to protect the customer against latent defects of goods sold.

In the case of products sold on this site that are not made by Onewood, of damage to a person or property resulting from a product defect, only the product manufacturer shall be held liable and sought after by the customer.

All products sold on THE MERCHANT SITE are covered by a one (1) year warranty.
