Can I have my order delivered to the showroom?
For smaller items, we offer a free Click and Collect delivery option when you order online – just select your preferred store from the drop down option at the checkout. For full Click and Collect details (including timescales), please click here.
Fragile items cannot be collected from Parsons Green due to limited storage space.
For heavier items, this is subject to storage space at the store, so please call our Customer Service Team to discuss this option.
Why do I have more than one delivery; where are my other items?
We always try to deliver whole orders where possible but sometimes this isn’t possible. If you have ordered a combination of both standard and heavy items, they will be delivered by different couriers. It may also be a result of one or more of your items currently being out of stock, which will have been highlighted at the time of ordering. If you require further information re. your delivery, please contact our Customer Service team on 03330 042 042.
Will you take away my old sofa, bed or other large item of furniture?
If you live within the M25, we are able to offer a disposal service for like-for-like heavy items. There is a £25 charge for this service. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer this if your delivery address is outside the M25.

If a product is out of stock, it will not appear in the search results. Alternatively, you can type in a keyword or the name of the item in the search bar, or find a product using our categories.

When will my payment card be charged?

How can I check when a certain product is available?
Our website is constantly updated with current stock availability. You can also check in-store with a member of the team or call our Customer Service Team on 03330 042 042.
Why can’t I find an item online that I saw in one of your stores?
Some of our stores have items that are only available to buy in-store. Chelsea and Abingdon have a selection of Limited Edition items, whilst South Godstone and Abingdon offer outlet items, which are ex-display, seconds or end-of-line pieces. Likewise, we also have an online outlet section featuring products not found in either of our outlets. These are all end-of-line items in excellent condition.
Can I see your full collection in every store?
The majority of our collection is available to see in our two flagship stores – Chelsea and Froxfield. In larger stores, we try to show highlights and best-sellers from our collection (alongside a selection of outdoor furniture in our country stores), and in smaller stores - such as Parsons Green and OKA at Hoopers, Tunbridge Wells - we stock smaller pieces of furniture and lots of accessories to give you a taster of the full range. If there is something you are looking for in particular, then please call ahead to check it is available to view. Our full collection can be seen in the Directory and online.
Where do I enter my promotion code?
The promotion code box is on the payment details page of the checkout – just enter your code and click ‘apply’.
Why isn’t my promotion code working?
One of the following reasons could mean your promotion code doesn’t work:
1) The promotion code has expired – please check the promotion end date in the terms and conditions.
2) There is a mistake in the code – have you have entered the code exactly as it appears?
3) There are restrictions – items in your basket may not meet the promotion code terms we have set, i.e. full-price items, order total over a certain amount, items must be from a certain product category, single use only, etc.
If you have checked the three suggestions above and believe your promotion code is valid, there may be a technical problem so please speak to one of our Customer Services Team by calling 03330 042 042.
Returns and Refunds
How can I return an item?
Please see our returns information for full details on how to return items purchased mail order, in-store or online, plus a list of items excluded from our returns policy.
Can I return sale items?
Yes, items bought in the sale can be returned within 28 days and are subject to our standard returns policy.
Can I return outlet items?
Items purchased in our South Godstone outlet or Abingdon outlet section are sold as seen and therefore our standard returns policy does not apply to these. Outlet items are classed as seconds or end of line, which means they are either damaged, have previously been on display or are now discontinued. Any damage on an item will be clearly indicated at the time of purchase.
Items purchased from our online outlet follow our standard returns policy and therefore can be returned. See our returns information for details.
Are delivery charges refundable?
Should you have to return an item, please note we are unable to refund any delivery charges paid on your original order.
