  1. Product
    1. All descriptions of products are correct at the time of publication. We have a policy of continuous product development and reserve the right to amend the specification of products without prior notice in relation to future sales.
    2. Beds and Mattresses are sold separately. All bed prices shown do not include a mattress.
    3. Wood reacts to sunlight and changes in temperature and humidity which can also cause solid wood to warp or split. Leather may not be uniform in colour or texture and may show natural marks and scars on the hides. Leathers and fabrics may fade with exposure to direct sunlight.
  2. Measurements
    1. All measurements are rounded up to the nearest whole centimetre. Every care is taken to ensure all measurements are correct at the time of publication. Mattress sizes can vary slightly from dimensions given when new but will spread to full size with use. Our mattresses are made to order and are handmade so there is a 2cm tolerance on all dimensions.
  3. Pricing
    1. Our pricing includes VAT and we reserve the right to adjust VAT if it changes. Prices are correct at the time of publication. In the unlikely event that the price of an item has been incorrectly advertised, we will contact you to ask whether you wish to proceed with the order at the correct price. If you are not happy to proceed, or we are unable to obtain your instructions, we will cancel the order.
  4. Guarantees
    1. If you find the same bed or furniture selling for less in another high street shop in the UK we will match the price. We don't match the price against online only companies.
    2. All of our furniture comes with a 2 year construction guarantee. The guarantee period on our mattresses vary from 3-10 years depending on the mattress model purchased. Guarantees exclude goods purchased from our clearance sections or ex display items. This guarantee does not cover fair wear and tear, neglect, abuse or misuse of your goods.
    3. The 100 Night Trial only applies to mattresses with an advertised pocket spring count of 3,000 and above which have been purchased from one of our showrooms. You must have tried the selected model at the showroom where you made your purchase and have followed the individual advice from our sales team who will guide you in your selection. You must have purchased and used a Feather & Black mattress protector on the same order.
    4. The 100 Night Trial may only be invoked by the original purchaser between 30 and 100 days after delivery of the mattress. Proof of purchase is required. The 100 Night Trial does not apply to purchases made either on the internet, by phone, from clearance or ex display, for bespoke sizes or mattresses that have become defective due to misuse, wilful damage, accidental damage, neglet or general wear and tear. We reserve the right to refuse the exchange if the mattress is not in a re-saleable condition. A collection fee of £50 will apply in respect of the original mattress together with a £50 delivery charge for the replacement mattress. The 100 Night Trial is limited to one exchange only for an alternative tension of the same mattress model and size. If the model is no longer available, we reserve the right to substitute a suitable alternative. Should you wish to upgrade, the additional cost will be your responsibility.
      Our guarantees only apply to goods delivered to mainland UK. If the goods are removed from mainland UK and you wish to claim under the terms of the guarantee, you will be responsible for any additional shipping costs.

Please allow up to 14 days from the later of the final payment date or the date advised on your order confirmation for delivery to take place.
