CANCELLATION AND RETURNS POLICY
You may cancel your order without incurring any costs at any time prior to delivery as long as the Goods have not been fulfilled. At this point, you will receive an email confirming your items are fulfilled and ready for dispatch. Should you wish to cancel your order after it has been fulfilled, a Fulfilment Cancellation Charge applies.
Our furniture delivery partners will contact you to offer you a delivery date. Once accepted, this is the day your delivery will be routed. If you subsequently need to cancel that date, a failed delivery charge may apply. If you are not at home to receive the delivery on the agreed date, a failed delivery charge will apply. Failed deliveries are charged the same as returns.
You will, however, be able to return standard items as long as this is within the terms of our returns policy.
If you wish to cancel a bespoke or made-to-order item of furniture, you may do so at any time up to 24 hours after you have placed your order by contacting us in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org
Most Goods may be returned to us as long as we are notified in writing within 14 days of the delivery. These Goods must not be used or damaged after the delivery has taken place. Items must be returned in perfect condition and in their original, undamaged packaging. Any item returned must not have been assembled (including part assembled), installed, used, or modified. You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession. Modish Living are not responsible for the return postage or packages that do not reach us.

If you have selected White Glove delivery service, this additional cost will not be refunded should you choose to return the item.
If you would prefer for us to collect the goods, a charge for collection will apply. Collection costs vary and are dependent on the number of items or locations. For mainland UK and most of mainland Scotland, a charge of £45 for the first product will apply, with additional products carrying an extra charge of £25 each. A charge of £75 applies to some mainland Scottish postcodes, Scottish Highlands, Scottish Islands, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
The collection costs are chargeable for each attempted agreed collection.
Our drivers will only collect from the original delivery address of your items.
You are under no obligation to use our drivers, however, should you need us to book a collection on your behalf, then you will need to confirm this in writing to us. If we agree to a return, you should make sure you leave the Products well packaged in a safe place where our drivers can collect them. Under no circumstances should the Products be used prior to collection as this could effect your refund.
Our Storage Address may on occasions change, depending on the item. We, therefore, offer the storage address by writing, within 7 days notice.
Nothing in these terms affects your statutory rights as a consumer.
BESPOKE and MADE-TO-ORDER FURNITURE
You (the customer) will not have the right to receive a refund or an exchange for Bespoke and Made-to-Order Goods, apart from if there is a defect or a fault with the Goods. Where a defect or fault is deemed as small and can, therefore, be made good or rectified by Modish Living, Modish Living will have the right to make good. Should your Bespoke or Made-to-Order Goods not be exact in sizing (within 1cm to the measured requirements), you (the customer) will have the right for this to be rectified. You (the customer) will not have the right to cancel the Bespoke or Made-to-Order Goods order, should Modish Living deem the fault, defect or sizing to be of a small nature, thus can easily be rectified.
If Goods are returned due to a defect or fault (see Delivery Policy for notification of defects).
Modish Living does not offer refunds on any items delivered overseas.
We aim to give an accurate estimate of lead times on each product page. Due to reasons out of our control, these can be subject to change, but we guarantee to update the customer of any changes as soon as possible.
In some cases, there may be a delay to only one of your items on your order, in which case we can speak to you about a possible split delivery. However please note we are unable to offer split delivery on any items purchased either as a bundle or for orders processed via interest-free.
Product prices include delivery fees where delivery is intended for mainland UK and some mainland Scotland. An additional delivery charge applies for Scottish Highlands postcodes. We are currently unable to offer standard delivery to Scottish Islands, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and Channel Islands.

You (the customer) is responsible for ensuring the dimensions of your purchase meets your requirements and has suitable access to your room, home, office or other intended use.
For larger items, our delivery service provider will contact you by phone or email, using the contact information provided at the time of order, to confirm a delivery date for the coming 5 days. Once your delivery date has been agreed by you (the customer), delivery will be deemed to take place at the agreed date.
1 - 2 days prior to the delivery, the delivery service partner will contact you to advise of the time slot.
Should you be unable to take delivery at the agreed delivery date, failed delivery charges may apply. If we attempt to make a delivery and cannot access the premises/room of choice due to size restrictions, then a failed delivery charge will be applicable.
For large items (such as beds, wardrobes..), we operate a 2-man delivery service to a room of choice. Placement of the item to the room of choice will take place once a satisfactory safety assessment has been carried out by our delivery team/driver. Should the room of choice not meet the safety assessment requirements, then our delivery team/driver will place the Goods in an alternative location. If you have any concerns at all with regards to accessing your required room/premises, please contact us prior to placing an order, see contact details on the website.
Small to Medium Deliveries
For small to medium items, we operate a 1-man delivery service and the item is delivered to just over the threshold of the property.
Please note, it is not the responsibility of our delivery team/driver to move or dismantle any furniture which is already in the room. Nor is it their responsibility to clean the room after your Goods have been assembled or to remove packaging from the delivery address.
On some services our drivers may carry out assembly as part of their service - you may decline this service. If you accept this offer of assembly, the items are no longer returnable.
In the case your item of furniture is being placed on a hard floor, as opposed to a carpeted floor, it is the responsibility of you (the customer) to provide adequate protection for your floor, i.e. soft pads. As many of our items are newly waxed before being delivered, it is the responsibility of you (the customer) to place adequate protection down for carpeted floors, to avoid staining.
Our delivery drivers are under no obligation to accept the return of the Goods being delivered. Should you wish to return the Goods whilst the delivery drivers are still present and they are able to do so, this is at the driver's discretion. The same Fullfillment Cancelation Charge / Return / Collection costs will apply.
Furniture deliveries are agreed in advance of them taking place. Any missed or cancelled deliveries may incur a failed delivery charge.
INSPECTION OF GOODS AND NOTIFICATION OF DEFECTS
Once the goods have been delivered and, if required, unpacked and/or assembled, you will need to inspect the Goods and will be asked to sign an acknowledge receipt. Please note, assembly of goods is only carried out upon request of a white glove service.
Should you appoint a third party to accept your delivery for you, they (the third party) will be deemed responsible to inspect your Goods upon arrival for any damage or defects. Either you (the customer) or a third party acting in your place to receive the delivery, must be of the age of 18+ in order to sign for the Goods.
Assembly & White Glove
Should any item be assembled by our delivery team or unpackaged by our drivers at the delivery address, this must be inspected by you (the customer or your appointed third party) at the point of delivery and before assembly. Any defects must be notified to our delivery team at the time of delivery.
We are unable to accept any return of items that have been assembled, either by you (the customer or your appointed third party) or by our drivers.
Goods that do not require assembly or are not unpackaged by our delivery team at the delivery address, should be unpacked and inspected by you at the time of delivery.
For items delivered by Standard delivery, you must unpack and check for any damage prior to assembly. If there is damage to your item, this must be notified in writing to Modish Living within 24 hours of receiving the goods, by emailing email@example.com
Failure to notify us within 24 hours of delivery, will result in you being deemed to have accepted the Goods. After acceptance, you shall not be entitled to reject the Goods delivered to you (the customer) by Modish Living.
In the unlikely event, there is damage to your item, Modish Living will engage its third party network of furniture technicians to repair the damage if possible. If this is not possible, a replacement will be offered. The following exceptions apply.
Claims for damage once you have assembled your item may not be supported. Please inspect components and notify us of any damage BEFORE assembling the item.
Claims for damage if an item has been transported to a different location than the one we delivered to cannot be supported.
Claims for defects if you have transported an item out of the UK can not be supported.
Modish Living work with high-quality natural materials such as reclaimed wood, sustainable timber and uncorrected leather. Such natural materials will carry natural marking such as cracks, splits and shakes, in solid timber, and in addition marks, knocks, dents and nail holes in reclaimed wood. Our uncorrected leathers may display scars, creases, variations and branding marks. There are no circumstances in which you (the customer) can reject the Goods delivered by us (Modish Living) on the basis of such defects or failures which are so minor, that your rejection would be unreasonable.
Once a fault or defect has been notified to us (Modish Living) we will endeavour to promptly rectify the issue with you through repair where possible. If this is not possible, we will look to exchange or refund. Nevertheless, we will not remain liable for the Goods if you continue to use them, or if any repairs or alterations are made, by you, to the Goods, without written consent from us (Modish Living).
Please note, repairs and exchanges must be made at the delivery address. We can not accept notification of damage once an item has been moved to another address.
With wood being left natural throughout some products, small splinters may occur. It is the responsibility of you (the customer) to inspect the items for any splintered wood to ensure they do not pierce your skin. It is also the responsibility for you (the customer) to remove any splintered wood accordingly (can often be done through adding a soft wax). In the event it seems unclear for you (the customer) to treat a splintered area, then advise may be given by Modish Living through contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
