Terms & Conditions
Please read these terms of sale carefully.
By purchasing products from this website, you will be agreeing to these terms and conditions of sale.
In these terms of sale, "we" means Sofa & Home Limited (and "us" and "our" will be construed accordingly); and "you" means our customer or potential customer for products (and "your" will be construed accordingly).
(3) Order process
You can order and pay by any Major Credit or Debit Card either by phone, or by ordering and paying through our secure website checkout.
The advertising of products on our website constitutes an "invitation to treat"; and your order for products constitutes a contractual offer. No contract will come into force between you and us unless and until we accept your order in accordance with the procedure detailed below.
In order to enter into a contract to purchase products from us, you will need to take the following steps:
(a) you must add any of the products you wish to purchase to your shopping cart, and then proceed to the checkout.
(b) as a customer, you must select your preferred method of payment and confirm your payment. We will then send you the initial acknowledgement of order/ sales receipt (at which point your order will become a binding contract).
(c) we will either send you an email order with delivery confirmation details or we will confirm by telephone that we are unable to meet your order due to stock issues or a postcode delivery surcharge. In this case your purchase card will not be authorised unless you wish to continue with the order. We store the contracts content and will send you the details of your orders as well as our delivery terms via email. You can find the terms here at all times. The details about your recent orders can be found in your customer login. We may update the version of these terms of sale on the website from time to time, and we do not guarantee that the version you have agreed to will remain accessible. We therefore recommend that you download, print and retain a copy of these terms of sale for your records. Please note that in some instances, your email service provider may deem emails as 'junk' 'trash' or 'spam' so please check in these folders if the email does not appear in your inbox.
(d) the only language in which we provide these terms of sale is English. The currency used on this website is GBP.
(e) before you place your order, you will have the opportunity of identifying whether you have made any input errors. You may correct those input errors before placing your order. If you have written a number in error and placed your order, please contact Sofa & Home to correct your details.
(f) delivery date windows start usually from receiving the Suppliers Acknowledgement.
(4) The products
All products are sold on the basis that they are suitable for domestic use only. We are not responsible for any financial loss or damage or personal injury sustained by the Customer in the use of our furniture. All dimensions are approximate, Sofa & Home cannot be held responsible for any product recommendations given. Using Image Enhancing Software we endeavour to realise colour accuracy, but due to the limitations of colour reproduction and individual colour settings of your computer monitor screen, we cannot guarantee exact colour match as seen on Sofa & Home's website. Due to production methods used, we cannot guarantee a perfect match between other pieces of furniture ordered.
(5) Price and payment
Prices for products are quoted on our website. The website contains a large number of products and it is always possible that some of the prices on the website may be incorrect. We will verify prices as part of our sale procedures so that a product's correct price will be stated when you pay for the product.
In addition to the price of the products, you may have to pay a delivery charge, which will be as stated when you pay for the product.
Payment must be made upon the submission of your order. We may withhold the products and/or cancel the contract between us if payment is not received from you in full in cleared funds.
The prices on the website include Value Added Tax where applicable. VAT Invoices are issued by request only.
Payment for all products must be made by credit or debit card OR any method detailed on the website from time to time.

(7) Delivery policy
We will arrange for the products to be delivered to the address for delivery indicated in your order.
We will use reasonable endeavours to deliver products on or before the date for delivery set out in our order confirmation. However, we cannot guarantee delivery or collection by the relevant date, which may be due to supplier or carrier problems. Administration or delivery errors committed by couriers/carriers are beyond our control. We are not responsible for any loss or damage caused by third party carriers used in storage and/or the delivery of goods or any personal injury sustained by the Customer. Any incorrect address, due to an administration error by the supplier or carrier, will be the responsibility of the respected party.
Customers giving incorrect addresses, causing the carrier to return the item (s) to their warehouse and onwards to our supplier will be charged the return fee. If our DHD courier attempts delivery and delivery is failed due to inadequate space then you will be charged full price for delivery costs, plus any other returns costs. For those living in the Islands we can deliver to a UK Shipper of your choice on the mainland. We can assist with shipping information for you to organise and any VAT refunds where applicable. Please note responsibility is yours for any damage or loss in transit and we suggest taking out insurance for this.
Please see our delivery page for full details.
(8) Risk and ownership
The products will be at your risk from the time the item(s) are delivered. Ownership of the products will only pass to you upon the later of:
(a) delivery of the products; and
(b) receipt by us of full payment of all sums due in respect of the products (including delivery charges).
We will be entitled to recover payment for the products even where ownership has not passed to you.

Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 you may cancel a contract to purchase a product or products at any time within 14 days from the day you received the relevant product or products (subject to the limitations set out below). If you cancel a contract on this basis, you must inform us in writing or any other durable medium.
You will not have any such right insofar as a contract relates to the supply of goods made to your specifications or clearly personalised.
Products returned by you in accordance with this section will be refunded in full (including the cost of sending the products to you). However, you will be responsible for paying the cost of returning the product to us. Please see Returns (15) and Returns Procedure (16).
If you cancel a contract on this basis and you do not return to the products to us, we may recover the products and charge you for the costs we incur in doing so. Similarly, if you return the products at our expense, we may pass that expense on to you.
