Your order to us is your offer to purchase the products, services, and third party warranties you have ordered, on and subject these sales terms, and subject to our acceptance of your order. You are entitled to withdraw your order at any time up to the moment that we accept it.
4.2 Our acceptance
Your order is accepted, and the contract is made, when we send you an email or other written communication confirming receipt of your order, or if we do not send such an email, when we despatch the products or the first instalment of the products to you.
4.3 If we decline your order
If we decline your order, before acceptance, for any reason, we will normally e-mail or telephone you to inform you, and give you our reasons. We may decline your order before we have accepted it for any reason at our sole discretion, and we may decline your order in whole or in part.
4.4 Multiple items
If your order lists more than one product, service or third party warranty then there shall be considered to be a separate and independent order and contract for each of them.
5. Contract Terms
The terms of the contract will comprise the following:-
5.1 General Terms
The following general terms: (a) these sales terms; (b) any general delivery, installation and returns information published by us on our website at the time of your order, setting out (among other things) delivery and returns charges and methods, installation service description, delivery locations, timescales, and restrictions; and (c) any terms or rights implied into or applied to the contract by any statute or law applicable to the United Kingdom (but the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded).
5.2 Order Specific Terms
The specific terms of your order (including description and quantity of products ordered, price and delivery and other charges applicable, your details, delivery address, billing address, and payment method and payment details) set out in the checkout webpages (for website orders) generated by our website and sent to your web browser and submitted back by you, or (for telephone orders) as agreed orally in your telephone call with us. In each case, these order specific terms may confirmed by us in any written acknowledgement or acceptance of your order which we send to you.
6.2 Third Party Warranty Schemes (e.g. Staingard)
Where your order is for a third party warranty scheme or plan for any of our products (such as our Staingard Care Plan), then the following terms apply:-
6.2.1 Where the scheme or plan includes a third party warranty, then: our agreement with you is to procure in your name that third party warranty from the provider(s); the terms of the third party warranty will be as communicated by us to you prior to the order; the price includes the provider's premium for such third party warranty, which we will pay over to the provider(s), and our commission on the same; the third party warranty is a separate contract between you and the provider(s), on their terms and conditions, which they will write to you separately about; and we shall have no liability to you for and give no guarantee with respect to their performance of the third party warranty - our responsibility is limited to procuring the third party warranty that you ordered.
The products and services to be provided by us, and any the third party warranties to be procured by us, will correspond to the essential characteristics, description and specifications set out in our website and in your order at the time when you submitted your order, subject to the following terms.
7.2 Bespoke products
Where there is a bespoke product, and we have not agreed to procure the fabric from a third party manufacturer, then: you will be responsible for providing and transporting fabric to us promptly in order for us to produce bespoke products; you will be required to supply to us sufficient fabric to enable us to produce the products, with some allowance for wastage; you must arrange for it to be transported to our nominated premises; and we will not be responsible for the condition, quality or suitability of the fabric you supply. Where any bespoke product is to be made to your dimensions or design, you must give written approval for any final dimensions and designs before we are obliged to start production, and you are responsible for ensuring that the dimensions and designs are fit for your purposes.
7.3 Natural wood products
Products which are made of natural wood are likely to vary in appearance, grain pattern and texture and tone both within individual products themselves and between products in a particular range or design, with the effect that no two items are identical, and no item may exactly match any sample.
7.4 Distressed finish
Where distressed finish is applied to a product, the results may vary from product to product in finish and appearance. The distressed finish may appear as splits or cracks, marks, scars, wood filling, knots, scratch marks, incomplete paintwork or lacquer, or antiquing.
7.5 Finish in surfaces
Due to the inherent inconsistencies in the absorbency of wooden surfaces, the finish of painted or polished furniture may vary and the wood will mellow with age. It is not unusual or a fault if wooden furniture cracks or splits as part of the natural and normal settlement of the timber.
7.6 Alteration of specification
We may alter the specification of the products where such alteration does not materially affect their quality or performance.
We use reasonable efforts to make our products as accurately as possible, however measurements are approximate, and your products may not precisely conform to any measurements provided. You agree that all products may be supplied with dimensions which are up to +/- 20mm of the stated dimension, including to allow for variances in fabric pile.
7.8 Fabric batches
Fabric batches may vary. The majority of our fabrics are yarn dyed which means there can be a shade variation between batches. We endeavour to make the whole of your order using material from the same batch; however, we cannot guarantee that all the products in your order will precisely match or that subsequent orders for products with the same type of fabric will match any previous orders for products with that type of fabric.
7.9 Stripes, checks and patterns
Stripe, check and pattern fabrics may not be cut and upholstered as shown on the website, as each product is individually made for you by our artisans.
7.10 Fading and discoloration
You agree that the products will be subject to such fading or discolouration due to exposure to direct or indirect sunlight as is normally to be expected for products of this type in the industry. We cannot accept any responsibility for fading or discolouration due to exposure or contact with any chemicals sprayed nearby or applied directly.
7.11 Cleaning and care
We recommend that all upholstery is cleaned in situ by a professional upholstery cleaning specialist every eighteen (18) to twenty-four (24) months depending on use. You agree to comply with our general advice and recommendations as to use, care for and cleaning of the products as set out in our website and provided with our products.
While we try to ensure that the products are as close as possible to those displayed online or in any fabric swatch supplied by us, we cannot guarantee a perfect match.
8. Price And Payment
8.1 Price, delivery charges and Other
You agree to pay the price, delivery charges and any other charges stated in your order and these contract terms, in accordance with the contract terms. The price, delivery charges and any other charges are stated inclusive of value added tax. The other charges include any export or import costs and taxes under clause 8.2.
8.2 Payment with order
Unless otherwise stated in the contract terms: payment of the price, delivery charges, and any other charges must be made with your order; we must receive payment for the whole price, delivery charges and all other charges before your order can be accepted; and we are not obliged to process your order, produce or dispatch any products, provide any services, or procure any third party warranties, until payment in full has been received by us.

10. Delivery Arrangements - General
10.1 Arrangement of delivery
When your products are ready our carrier will contact you to arrange the specific delivery date and time window with you. Once you have agreed a specific date and time for delivery, you must strictly adhere to this and ensure that you are available to take delivery at that date and time.
10.2 Delivery address
Delivery will be to the delivery address stated in your order. If no address was stated, then delivery will be to the address at which your payment card is registered, or if that is not available, to any other address you have provided in any website account with us.
All goods must be delivered into your home within 3 weeks of you being contacted to arrange delivery. A non-refundable fee will be charged where we have been unable to agree delivery with you within this period.
10.3 Delivery days
We only deliver on the days and within the times set out in the delivery information pages on our website. Any statements as to delivery within a number of days should be read accordingly.
We will wherever possible deliver all products in your order at the same time. If this is not possible we will contact you and may deliver those products by instalments as they become available. This will not affect your rights to cancel or terminate the contract.
11. Delivery Arrangements - Foreign
The following contract terms apply where delivery is to be made to a delivery address which is not in the United Kingdom, except to the extent other terms are agreed with you in your order. These contract terms shall take precedence over clause 9 in the event of conflict.
We will be responsible for clearing the products for export from the UK. The price for the products and services also includes any taxes payable to the UK government for export of the products.
You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the products are destined. You are responsible for obtaining at your own risk and expense any import licence or other official authorisation or other documents necessary to import the products, and you must carry out any customs formalities (including appointing and paying import agents) necessary for the import of the products. You are responsible for paying, all costs in relation to import of the products (including in relation to licences, authorisations, clearances and other formalities, and including to obtain the release of the products from any delivery company), and for paying all import taxes, duties and levies, including those due to any customs or other local or national authority, referred to in this contract as the "import costs and taxes". Unfortunately we will not be able to tell you the import costs and taxes in advance of your products arriving, and we recommend that you contact your local customs authority to determine the import taxes and costs and a landed cost price prior to submitting your order. You agree to pay to us as an additional charge any import costs and taxes we may incur. The price and delivery charges in your order exclude such import costs and taxes, which shall be payable by you when they have been ascertained, and may be collected using the same payment method as the price, if we incur the import costs and taxes. The company we use for delivery may alternatively contact you by telephone once your products are in customs to inform you of the import costs and taxes that you are liable to pay, and may require payment to them at that point before proceeding to deliver the products, or they may require payment of import costs and taxes upon delivery at the agreed delivery address, as a condition of releasing the products to you. You may also be required to pay some or all of the import costs and taxes directly to any customs or any other local or national government authority. We are not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes. If you fail to comply with this clause, you must pay any additional costs incurred by us, and we may apply the terms of clause 13.6.
12. Delivery Timescales
12.1 Delivery date
We will use reasonable efforts to deliver the products, provide the services, and procure the third party warranties, by the delivery date or within the delivery timescales stated in your order, or if not so stated, the delivery date or delivery timescales as stated in any other contract terms, or if no contract terms specify this information, in accordance with the standard delivery timescales stated on our website.
12.2 Events outside of our Control
Without prejudice to your statutory rights, we are not responsible for delay in supplying or delivering or failure to supply or delivery any products, services or third party warranties, if this delay is due to unforeseen events beyond our reasonable control. We will let you know as soon as possible if there is going to be a problem, and give you an opportunity to cancel your order, in which case we will refund all amounts paid by you to us under the order, as well as giving you an opportunity to continue with the order if possible, in which case we will agree with you a revised time for delivery as soon as we are in a position to continue performing the order.
13. Receipt Of The Products By You
13.1 Your failure to receive the products
If delivery is attempted within any agreed window under clause 9.1 and you are not present to collect the products or you unreasonably refuse to take delivery of the products, then clause 13.6 shall apply.
13.2 Access for delivery
It is your responsibility to ensure that there is safe adequate access to the delivery address for the products you have ordered, taking into account the size, weight and bulk of the products you have ordered. If we are unable to offload the products ordered due to inadequate access, then clause 13.6 shall apply.
13.3 Installation of products
We will install the products in such room at the delivery address as you may choose, and as part of this carry the products to that room, unpack the products, remove and dispose of the packaging in compliance EC legislation, and assemble the products (if they do not arrive fully assembled). In case of tight spaces, the couriers will remove arms or legs/castors (where the product is designed to have removable arms, legs or castors) and assemble once in the room of choice. You must allow us to do this at the time of delivery. It is your responsibility to ensure that the room is adequate for the size of the products and to ensure that there is an adequate access route from our delivery vehicle to the room taking into account the size, weight and bulk of the products you have ordered. You must measure the room and the access to the room correctly, and check they accommodate any dimensions of the products. If we are unable to deliver the products to the room due to the products being too big to fit in the room or to fit through the interior of the delivery address (including stairwells and doors) then clause 13.6 shall apply.
13.4 Checking on delivery and signing delivery note
All deliveries must be unpacked and checked on delivery, and you must sign our delivery papers before we will release the products to you. Signing for delivery is for simple proof of receipt purposes and to confirm receipt of the products as ordered and will not affect any of your other rights. Please make sure you keep the packaging and packing list enclosed with your products, as this will be important if you return the products later on.
13.5 Your inspection on delivery
You should check that you have received all of the products you ordered, and inform us as soon as you can if you think anything is missing, not as ordered, damaged, or not in working order. You should call us on 03331 221 537, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can within 48 hours of delivery to let us know about any item which is damaged. We may require proof of damage from you by way of a photograph to help us assess the damage and facilitate a repair, replacement or refund of the damaged products. However if you fail to provide such proof, this will not affect your statutory rights.
13.6 Consequences of delivery failures caused by you
Where this clause 13.6 is applied by a clause above, then this means that we shall have the following rights: (a) for legal purposes, including your cancellation rights, delivery will be deemed to have been made; (b) we may abandon any delivery attempt and shall cease to be obliged to deliver or install the products, so that you will be responsible for collecting them from us; (c) we may charge you our reasonable costs of returning the products to our depot; (d) we may make a reasonable storage charge; (e) we may make a reasonable charge or additional delivery charge for re-delivering the products at another time; (f) we will enable you to collect the products from our depot or we may (at our discretion) agree to a further delivery attempt at further delivery charge to which these contract terms shall apply; (g) we will store the products for a maximum of 2 months, after which we may sell the products, in which case we may account to you for the proceeds less our reasonable storage costs and all other amounts payable by you to us under the contract.
Risk in the products shall pass to you when they come into your physical possession or that of any person identified by you to take possession of the products, or of any carrier you commissioned to collect the products from us and transport them to you; or when our courier service hands over the products to any person whom you authorise to collect them from a postal or courier service; or otherwise when we leave the products at a place or with a person in accordance with any express delivery instructions received from you. Risk in any returned products shall pass back to us only when they come back into our physical possession, or that of any person identified by us to take possession of the returned products, or any carrier commissioned by us collect the products from you and transport them back to us.
Title to the products passes to you on delivery EXCEPT THAT if the price or any other amount payable by you is outstanding at delivery, then: (a) title is retained by us until you have paid in full the price and all other amounts payable under the contract; (b) we may still sue for the price, notwithstanding that title has not passed; (c) your right to possession and use of the products shall cease if any amount payable by you under the contract becomes overdue, and we shall be entitled to enter any premises where the products are kept for the purposes of repossessing them in such event.
16. Your Statutory Cancellation Rights
Where you are a consumer, you have the right to cancel the contract for any products or services without giving any reason, under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Payments) Regulations 2013. This right is in addition to your statutory rights for defective products as summarised under clause 17 below. The following terms summarise the right and set out the applicable procedures.
16.1 Cancellation deadline - Products
You can exercise this right by giving us notice before you receive the products, or by giving notice no later than 14 days after the day you received the products (the "cancellation deadline"). If the contract covers multiple products, then the cancellation period runs from the delivery of the last of those products.
16.2 Cancellation deadline - Services and Third Party Warranties
In the case of services or any third party warranty, you can exercise this right no later than 14 days after the day the contract was formed (the "cancellation deadline"), if you want to cancel this independently of cancelling the products. If you cancel any order for any product, then this cancellation will also be a cancellation of any third party warranty procured for such product and any order for services in relation to such product.
16.3 Bespoke products and other restrictions
Your cancellation right does not apply to products which were made to your specifications or are clearly personalised. This may include bespoke products. We may however, at our sole discretion, offer a 70% refund if you wanted to cancel the contract for any such bespoke or personalised products.
16.4 Service contracts
In the situation where we agree to provide services, then you confirm that you request the services begin before the end of the cancellation deadline, and you agree that if you subsequently cancel, you shall pay us an amount for such services which is in proportion to what services have been performed until you cancelled, in comparison with the full coverage of the contract. You agree to pay such amount on demand, and you agree that that we may deduct such amount from any refund which we are obliged to make to you.
16.5 How to exercise your right to cancel
To exercise you right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision by a clear statement to us. It is sufficient to meet the cancellation deadline if you send your statement before the cancellation deadline, even if we do not receive it until after the cancellation deadline. You can, but are not obliged, to exercise your right to cancel by: telephoning us on 03331 221 537; e-mailing us at email@example.com; or writing to us at Arlo & Jacob, Melbray House, Melbray Mews, 158 Hurlingham Road, London, SW6 3NS. It would be helpful if you could quote your order reference number, but don't worry if you cannot, as it won't affect your rights. You may use the model cancellation form, below, but it is not obligatory:-
Model cancellation form
To: Arlo & Jacob, Melbray House, Melbray Mews, 158 Hurlingham Road, London, SW6 3NS
[I/We] hereby give notice that [I/We] cancel [my/our] contract of sale of the following products:
Product Name Ordered On Received On
Customer Name: [ ]
Customer Address: [ ]
16.6 Condition of products returned
If you handle the products more than is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products then you are obliged to pay to us the amount by which the value of the products has been diminished as a result of this handling, up to, but no more than, the original price of the products. This includes if you return the products with damage that was not present on delivery or missing anything that was present on delivery. You agree to pay such amount on demand, and you agree that that we may deduct such amount from any refund which we are obliged to make to you.
16.7 Return of the products and costs of return
If you exercise your right to cancel, we will collect the products from the delivery address they were originally delivered to at no additional charge to you, and you must make them available to us for collection without undue delay, and in any event not later than 14 days after you informed us of your decision to cancel. However, if the products are at an address other than the original delivery address, then you must pay our direct costs of collecting the products from you. If you do not hand over the products when arranged, then we may also charge you our direct costs for each failed collection attempt. You agree that that we may deduct any costs payable by you under this clause from any refund which we are obliged to make to you. The products are at your risk until they have been returned to us, and accordingly we recommend that you insure the products accordingly under your household insurance.
If you cancel, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you under the contract with respect to the cancelled product or service, including the price, delivery charges and any other charges; but if you chose a type of delivery which costs more than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us for your delivery address, then we will not be obliged to refund you any additional delivery charges in excess of the cost of such standard delivery. We may deduct from your refund all amounts which are payable by you under this clause 15, including the costs of return of the products, any diminution in the value of the products, and payments due for services provided with your agreement or at your request. You will not incur any additional fees as a result of the reimbursement.
16.9 When and how your refund will be given
We will provide the refund without undue delay, and not later than 14 days of the day you informed us of your decision to cancel. We will make the refund using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise. With respect to services,a refund will be processed once the sofa has been returned to the factory and undergone our review process.
17. Your Statutory Rights For Defective Products And Services
Your main rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are summarised below for information purposes only:-
17.1 Title and quality of products
Statute implies into the contract terms that we will pass good title to the products, that the products will comply with their description, that the products will be of satisfactory quality, and that the products will conform to any sample provided.
17.2 Quality of services
Statute implies into the contract a term that we will provide all services with reasonable care and skill.
17.3 Rejection and refund
If the products were not in conformity with the contract at the time of delivery, you may, depending on the seriousness of the non-conformity, be entitled to reject the products and claim a full refund. However, you may lose this right if you do not reject the products when you have had a reasonable opportunity to examine the products to ascertain that they meet the requirements of the contract.
17.4 Financial compensation
If the products were not in conformity with the contract, you may also have a legal right to ask for financial compensation (known as damages) for loss you suffer, subject to clause 18 below.
17.5 Repair or replacement
If you are a consumer, you may have certain additional rights under statute to request a repair or replacement, which we summarise as follows for information: If the products were not in conformity with the contract at the time of delivery, or if they do not conform to the contract within 6 months after delivery, you may be entitled to ask us to repair or replace the products, at our cost, within a reasonable time and without causing significant inconvenience to you. We are, however, only obliged to repair or replace the products where it is possible and not disproportionate when compared with the following alternatives: repair (if you ask us to replace), replacement (if you ask us to repair), giving you a partial refund, or your cancelling the contract and getting a full refund. If we do not provide a repair or replacement remedy, or we undertake to repair or replace and fail to do so within a reasonable time, then you may either (a) elect to keep the products and ask for an appropriate partial refund; or (b) elect to return the products for a full refund. If repair or replacement is not possible or is disproportionate, or we fail to repair or replace the products within a reasonable time at our cost, you may keep the products and ask for a reduction in price, or cancel the contract and get a full refund. If you return the products for a full refund, we are entitled to reduce any refund to take account of any use you have had of the products since they were delivered to you.
