These terms and conditions only apply for online sales and not for any of our stores. You can find store terms and conditions here.

Futon Company has been in business for over 35 years and for the most part we owe our continued success to being able to provide what you, the customer, really want. In our determination to ensure that you get a good service, our terms and conditions are shown below. Please read these terms and conditions carefully. By submitting an order on this website you are agreeing to a binding contract with us with these terms and conditions.

Prices

The prices of the goods are as quoted on the website on the date the customer’s order is placed subject only to technical error for which Futon Company shall not be liable. If our system charges you less money than actual price of what should have been charged due to technical error, we will contact you asking for authorisation to debit difference in payment. Should our system charge you any extra due to any technical error, we shall refund you immediately. All published prices include VAT but exclude delivery.

As part of our continued efforts in fraud prevention, on very large orders where billing and delivery addresses are different, we may ask you to visit one of our stores to verify the pin on the card which you have made payment.

Damaged/Faulty Goods

Please inspect the packaging before signing for delivery. In the unlikely event of your order arriving damaged or appearing to be damaged, please refuse delivery and do not sign for it. However, if, after accepting delivery and opening the packaging, you find that components are either damaged or missing, you must inform us by stating order number and/or part number of relevant part immediately within 48 hours of delivery. We will organise a replacement part or product to be sent to you as soon as possible.

Returns

If for any reason you find the product to be unsuitable or are not happy with it after you have accepted delivery, you have the right to return the product to us for a full refund. All we ask is that you return the product in its original packaging in a saleable condition within 14 working days of delivery. Where products are not faulty it is your responsibility to arrange the return of any products at your own cost. This applies to online purchases only. For terms and conditions applicable to in-store purchases please visit the section Terms & Conditions in Store.

Please note: Your original standard delivery charge will be refunded only excluding any enhanced services such as weekend surcharges etc.

You can return your order to any of our 20 stores or return to our address below: Futon Company, Unit A2 Circular Point, Hickman Avenue, London, E4 9JG

A collection can be arranged by us for the standard collection charge which will be the same as your original delivery charge.

You are required to take reasonable care of items. Please return an item in its original and undamaged packaging with all of its components. If an item is returned undamaged in its original and undamaged packaging, we will offer you a refund in accordance with our refund policy.

Please note: that there are certain products which cannot be returned unless faulty due to health and hygiene reasons as they cannot be sold on:

These products include all of our mattresses, futons and sleepover items.

Please note: We do not offer any trial period for any of our mattresses.

Also, we cannot accept flat packed furniture that has been partially or fully assembled.

Cancellations

If you wish to cancel your online order, please do so by contacting us and stating your order number within 14 days of placing your order. If you cancel your order after goods have been despatched from our warehouse, a full refund will be processed once the goods are returned from the carrier back to us.

Stock Availability

If any of our products are out of stock, our website will display a message within the product information section of when new stock is due. Your order will be processed upon receipt and once stock is replenished, your order will be despatched the following working day.

Design Masters Furniture

We do not hold any stock of the Design Masters furniture which are only available on a "Made to order" basis. This means all Design Masters furniture is excluded from our refund policy.
