CONFIRMATION OF ORDER
Orders made to the Company need to be confirmed in writing. The Company will not accept liability for errors, omissions or mistakes which occur through consultation or order by telephone, or through a showroom consultation which is not subsequently confirmed in writing. Upon receipt of your written order, the Company will provide you with a proforma invoice that will include details of that order, along with specifications of the items requested. The Company requests that you review the invoice to ensure accuracy prior to finalising the order.
Once approved, the proforma invoice will become the agreement laid out between you and the Company for that order only. It will supersede and render obsolete any and all previous correspondence, either verbally or in writing (which includes electronic email) engaged in by you and the Company. This includes negotiations, prior arrangements, understandings, and other agreements that were made prior to the final order agreed to on the proforma invoice. Your acceptance of the proforma invoice becomes your agreement that you accept the contents of the proforma invoice as the full and complete order, entered into by you and the Company, and that you do not expect or require additional items not contained or set out within that proforma invoice, regardless of previous discussions, direct or implied.
The drawings, illustrations and other material contained in the Website, catalogues, brochures, or other advertising and marketing material, which are used by the Company to illustrate the goods for sale, should not be considered exact illustrations and should be regarded as a guide to the item only. These images and drawings do not form any part of the contract entered into between you and the Company.
Subsequent to a confirmed order and agreement being made between you and the Company, the request shall be considered the final agreement. Any subsequent changes to the order made after the agreement has been finalized will incur a fee of 5% of the item cost. Furthermore, structural changes and design alterations may not be possible depending upon the item concerned, and requests may be refused at the Company’s discretion.
The A Sprinkle of Deco and Art invoice constitutes the entire agreement with the client. Specifications not included in the invoice will not be passed to the workshops. Any specification contained in Purchase Orders and not included in the invoice, will not be valid. The client is responsible for reviewing the invoice to ensure that all specifications are correct. Failure to correctly review the invoice will render any subsequent claims invalid.
The Company requires full payment for all orders placed prior to beginning work and delivery of the goods. Where the Company experiences a delay in receiving your payment, they withhold the right to delay the delivery date of your order if necessary.
Payment methods should be by bank transfer (BACS), PayPal, credit or debit card. Cheques are acceptable forms of payment, but will incur an additional 10 days clearing time prior to the production of your order beginning. Credit card fees charged to the Company by credit card companies, are passed on to clients who choose to pay by credit card.
We believe that the many traditional skills and techniques used to make A Sprinkle of Deco and Art’s designs add to the beauty and individuality of each piece. If you require a higher level of uniformity or finish than these techniques may allow, please discuss your requirements with us before confirming your order.
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS AND PLANTS ARRANGEMENT
Vegetal arrangements made by the Company are created by hand. Samples are available to you on request, but it should be noted that these are intended as a guide only. Two pieces are never the same. While the Company aims to provide as close a match as possible, they do not guarantee an exact match.
While the Company aims to ensure that photography and other images contained on the Website, in the catalogue, or any other material where visual representation of their products is made, are accurate and up to date, variations are possible.
All A Sprinkle of Deco and Art pieces are handmade; and so variations in shape may occur. Where variations in colour, shape, material or other natural causes occur, the Company accepts no liability.
All goods provided by the Company are crafted by hand using carefully selected artificial flowers and plants. Finished products are best maintained in buildings where the temperature is around 20 degrees, and the humidity ranges between 45 -55 percent, whether naturally or by the use of humidifiers, dehumidifiers, air conditioning or heating units, determined by season or otherwise. The Company accepts no liability for the atmosphere of the building the product is contained in, and any adverse effect it may have on the product.
The Company advises not to place artificial vegetal arrangements under direct and continuous sunlight. Exposing your composition to extreme temperatures or variations in humidity can damage flowers and plants used in the arrangement. This can include variations which are caused by the use of radiators, fireplaces, humidifiers, or space heaters. Your furniture should not be affected by gradual changes, and abrupt changes can increase the risk of potential damage.
The Company will not be held liable for wood movement.
Tapestries and upholstery fabric made by the Company are created by hand. Samples of tapestry fabric are available to you on request.
FABRIC IN UPHOLSTERED SEATS
All upholstery provided by the company is done by hand using traditional techniques. Where your product has fabric, and you have specific requirements regarding the division or junction of the fabric, it is your responsibility to inform the company, who will produce the necessary detailed fabric scheme, at a cost to you. Failure to meet this requirement will mean all upholstery will be made at the discretion of our craftsman.
Certain materials, including silks, and velvet products made from silk or cotton, are susceptible to damage or marks from even light handling. Products made by the Company are created by hand, meaning the handling of these materials is inevitable. The Company does not accept liability or responsibility for the condition of fabrics like these when they are used in the manufacturing of your order. In addition, where your product features curtains or hanging fabrics, marks to certain materials are normal and might require specialist attention after installation as A Sprinkle of Deco and Art specialise in the production of furniture only.
If you are a VAT registered interior designer or private clients using your own fabric can be accepted, however it is your responsibility, or that of your supplier, to ensure the correct fabric arrives with the Company in good condition, without faults, defect or other flaws, in time for your order to be completed. You, or your supplier, will be liable for arranging delivery and the relevant costs concerned. The Company will accept no liability for flaws or imperfections in the finished product where that has been caused by faulty materials.
Where you are providing the fabric to complete your order, the company will provide you with a deadline for the receipt of materials in our office in London. Please note that your material must to meet British Fire Regulations. The Company cannot accept liability for any furniture which does not meet these standards as a result of the materials supplied by you or your third party supplier. It is your responsibility to ensure the fabric supplied by you, or your third party supplier is fit for purpose. Furthermore, the Company reserves the right to reject any material supplied by your or a third party, which does not meet the required standard. Where this rejection results in additional materials to be supplied, or a delay or increase in the production time, the Company reserves the right to levy a charge to offset any costs.
Where material supplied by you or your third party supplier does not match the original colour specified, the Company will endeavour to inform you of the difference. The Company does not accept liability for colour imperfections. It is suggested that you ensure with your third party supplier, that the colour you order is from the same sample batch.
If the delivery of a fabric is delayed by a third party company or fabric supplier, A Sprinkle of Deco and Art will not be responsible for any changes to the lead time as this is a circumstance beyond our control. In the unlikely event of a delay on the fabric selected, we will endeavour to give the client the opportunity to either replace the fabric or wait until the material becomes available.
Add-on treatments used after you have received your order risk affecting the performance and appearance of the fabric. In addition, where the product has already had a repellent or retardant coating applied, for stains or fire, additional treatment may have an adverse effect. The Company, and the fabric suppliers used by the Company, accept no liability for changes, alterations in appearance, reduction in performance, or any other negative effects that occur to products already delivered as a result of ‘add-on’ treatments applied after receipt.
BESPOKE DESIGNS & REPRODUCTIONS
If a client provides A Sprinkle of Deco and Art with a drawing or an image of a design to be reproduced, we will make every attempt to be as accurate as possible when undertaking the task however a perfect reproduction cannot be guaranteed unless we have the item to be reproduced physically in our workshops.
Furthermore, the Company will not be held liable for any reproduction made that contravenes any patents or other trademark or copyright. Establishing permission for any copying or reproduction is the sole responsibility of the client. If made aware, the Company will refuse to accept any orders which contain products with registered patents, trademarks or copyrights.
It is the sole responsibility of the client to inform the Company prior to the order being confirmed if a product specified has any patents, trademarks or copyrights; or if the client has any intention to own the rights of the design provided to A Sprinkle of Deco and Art. By entering the Contract with the Company, the client agrees that the Company can photograph, distribute and sell the finished product without paying any design fees or commission on the products made by the Company.
All quotations provided by the Company are done so on the premises that the designs specified are patent free and will be owned by the Company after production has been completed. Failure to inform the Company of any patents, trademarks or copyrights; or any attempt to claim design rights on pieces already produced and completed by the Company, will be subjected to a 400% surcharge on the price paid on the product in question.
Products created by the Company bear the A Sprinkle of Deco and Art’s artisans logo. Any requirement for unbranded products must be discussed with the Company prior to confirming your order.
Where applicable, A Sprinkle of Deco and Art may conduct an onsite visit to provide the client with advice on style and materials. Since A Sprinkle of Deco and Art does not offer an interior design service, clients are required to ensure that all pieces fit the spaces available or consult with an interior design professional regarding sizes and colours.
A Sprinkle of Deco and Art will provide the client with all specifications and dimensions in the proforma invoice and the furniture will be produced according to this information once all size and material specifications are approved and confirmed by the client. The Company cannot be held responsible for freestanding pieces of furniture which do not fit the space available or for the disposition of the furniture in the rooms where they are intended as this is the sole responsibility of the client.
Deliveries to the London and Home Counties region generally falls between 1-2 weeks. This lead time may vary depending on the size of the order placed, and the nominated delivery address. Please feel free to contact the Company to confirm lead times when you place your order. Where you wish to place an order with a time sensitive delivery date, please contact the Company in advance to discuss your requirements. The Company will endeavour to meet your timescale.
The lead time is applicable only once the full payment is made, all details and specifications confirmed and materials such as fabric rolls or samples received.
All delivery dates provided by the Company are offered in good faith. Notified delivery dates are not legally binding and do not form part of the contract or guarantee. Furthermore, depending upon the nature of the order, delivery dates should be considered approximates only.
The lead time provided to clients based outside the UK is the lead time for production and dispatch from the A Sprinkle of Deco and Art workshops. Although A Sprinkle of Deco and Art can provide clients with an estimated delivery time for orders outside the UK, we cannot guarantee a specific date as the lead time for home deliveries outside the UK may vary depending on a number of factors which are beyond the Company’s control, including vehicle availability and the area where the client is based. A Sprinkle of Deco and Art recommends the client to allow at least 4 additional weeks from the date of dispatch from the Company’s workshops.
All A Sprinkle of Deco and Art products are duly packed and boxed before being transported. The Company will contact you prior to delivery to offer available time slots. The time slots available will depend upon logistical requirements, along with dates and availability of the delivery team. While the Company will make every effort to accommodate client’s needs, the Company shall not be liable for delivery dates which do not meet client’s requests.
Upon delivery, the Company requests you inspect and sign for your order. Signing is accepted as confirmation that you have inspected your order, and that all requested items due for delivery as part of that order are present and in good condition. Where a third party is left to sign for the delivery on behalf of the client, the Company shall not be held liable or responsible for any defects subsequently found that would have been found on inspection. In addition, failure to sign the delivery note as requested may render claims made against that order as invalid.
Where you fail to accept delivery, either by missing the date or for any other reason, it is your responsibility to arrange redelivery of your order at additional cost to you. An alternative may be to collect your order from an assigned collection point. The Company will not be held liable for care of orders that have already left their warehouse. It is your responsibility to ensure your items are checked and complete prior to signing for them, including where they are delivered to an assigned collection point. The Company accepts no liability for items damaged once they have left the warehouse.
If your item is ready and you are unable to accept delivery after 10 days from the ready date of your item, we deserve the right to charge a storage fee of 1% of the total order value per day.
Access check. In the event that the client requires an onsite access check, there is a charge of £60 plus VAT for properties in London and the Home Counties. The conclusions drawn on the day of the visit may affect how the item needs to be made, so the order can only be processed after the access check is completed.
Standard Delivery Service. If you have paid for a Standard Delivery Service, our team will be instructed to place your order in a room of your choice upon arrival, unpack the item and remove all packaging from the property. Where an assembly is required, this is included in the Standard Delivery Service. The Standard Delivery Service is a two-man delivery where there is easy access to the room the furniture will be placed in, providing that room is located no higher than the 2nd floor. The Standard Delivery Service includes deliveries from Monday to Friday. Weekend deliveries can be organised on request, but are not included in the service.
The Standard Delivery & Installation Service will be required if your item needs to be fitted or installed on the day of the delivery. The Standard Delivery & Installation Service is a two-man delivery where there is easy access to the room the furniture will be placed in, providing that room is located no higher than the 2nd floor. The Standard Delivery & Installation Service includes deliveries from Monday to Friday. Weekend deliveries can be organised on request, but are not included in the service.
Where our delivery team concludes that your specific order will require additional resources, such as hoisting or the delivery of the furniture through a window, this type of delivery is not included in any of our standard delivery services and will therefore be quoted for on an individual basis.
The Company provides dimensions for items and products on the website. It is your responsibility to ensure the products you have ordered will fit into the space or room you intend it for. This includes checking doorway, ceiling and staircase dimensions. The Company can arrange an onsite access check for customers prior to placing an order.
The Company aims to ensure all sizes and dimensions contained on their website, in their catalogue, and in any other marketing, advertising or other material which provides information about their products, are accurate and correct. However, since all products are made by hand, some small differences may occur. Where there are specific dimension requests relating to the space your product is intended for, please notify the Company in advance so this can be taken into consideration. The Company will not be liable for any issues or problems arising where there was a failure on the part of the client to provide the necessary information.
Products made by the Company are leveled to ensure their doors (where there are any) hang evenly, and that they stand correctly without problem. Where the floor at the intended destination is not level, the Company will accept no liability for the look and wear and tear of the product in situ. In addition, the Company will provide levelers, at a cost, for uneven surfaces, and a request for these should be made to the Company.

CUSTOMERS INSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION
Customers based inside the European Union will not required to pay VAT on any order where they can produce a VAT number and proof of export to the Company. For quotes regarding packaging, air and sea shipping costs, and/or home deliveries, please contact the Company.
CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION
All items of decoration can be shipped globally. The Company will be able to assist in the organizing, exporting and packing, and the subsequent shipping of their goods to any destination around the world. It should be noted that the Company does not get involved with shipping itself, and will not assist with the completion of the shipping documentation. This process requires specialty knowledge of the intended destination. The Company recommends that clients make use of a reputable shipping company to complete the relevant documentation.
A copy of all shipping documentation must be provided to the Company prior to the item being shipped. This is required where you are exempt from VAT. Failure to provide this documentation means your sales invoice will be charged for the full amount, inclusive of VAT. Where this occurs, a refund can be made on subsequent production of the shipping documentation.
Where products are to be uplifted from the UK workshops or warehouse, the Company requires the client, or a representative of the client, to be in attendance to sign a note of satisfaction, confirming the furniture is present and received in good condition. The Company can, as an alternative, arrange delivery of the furniture, at a cost to the client, to shippers who are appointed by the client. The Company will still require the client, or client’s representative to be present at the handing over to the shippers, to sign off on receipt of the products in good condition. The Company accepts no liability for damage to any product once the delivery note has been signed and accepted.
Orders placed outside the European Union may be subject to import duties and taxes at the final destination. The Company is not liable for such fees or requirements, and it is solely the responsibility of the client to comply with any legal requirements concerning their importation.
Where goods removed from the UK are then found to have a fault, it shall be the responsibility of the client to return the product to the Company in the UK for inspection, including the payment of any necessary costs. Where the item is replaced or repaired, the Company will deliver it to a UK destination. Any requirement to have it exported abroad is the responsibility of the client, including any costs incurred for its transportation.
RETURNS AND CANCELLATIONS
The Company provides a skilled bespoke service, and all products are made to a personal specification. Therefore the statutory seven (7) day cancellation period under article 10 of the Consumer Protection Regulations 2000 does not apply. No cancellations will be accepted by the Company once production has begun.
Where the client cancels an order prior to the start of production, the client will be responsible for all the costs incurred to that point by the Company, including the fees for designing the product in question, as well as the production of bespoke samples, standard samples, order management and others. The company shall retain a discretionary 30% of the total amount of the order.
RISK AND TITLE
The ownership of the products remains with the Company until they are paid in full. However, risk for products passes to the client on receipt of the goods. Until a client becomes the full and complete owner of the products, they may not sell or part with possession of the goods. The Company withholds the right to enter any property where the goods are being held, for the purposes of recovering those goods while ownership remains with the Company.
All goods are supplied on condition that the amount of liability in relation to any defects or faults in the condition, quality, fitness for purpose or description of those goods, does not amount to a sum that exceeds the purchase price of the specific goods themselves.
In the event that the Company is unable to supply goods upon receipt of an order, the Company shall not be held liable by the customer, by way of contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory rights or duty, or any other method, for any of the following.

- Is based upon any statement made in the contract.
EVENTS OUTSIDE CONTROL

Furthermore, the Company is entitled to suspend performance for the duration of the period during which the event outside their reasonable control continues, without penalty. The Company retains the right to introduce an extension of time to any contract affected by an event outside their reasonable control, for the purpose of completing and fulfilling that contract, and that period of time may be determined by the Company. The Company will commit to finding a solution to bring an end to the event outside its reasonable control, or to find a solution to fulfill its obligations under the contract regardless of the event continuing.
