- Except for all orders of Furniture and Fabric, the acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on dispatch of the Products, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it. For orders of Furniture and Fabric, the acceptance of your order and the completion of the contract between you and us will occur when you receive a confirmatory email from us, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order or you have cancelled it. Once we have accepted your order it becomes binding, subject to your rights of cancellation. Non-acceptance of an order by us may occur if: the ordered Product is out of stock or unavailable; we identify a pricing or product description error; we are unable to obtain authorisation for your payment; or if we consider the order to be fraudulent.
- We reserve the right to withdraw any Products from this Website at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this Website. We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service to anyone at any time at our sole discretion.

- We will not be liable for any direct or indirect loss of profits or any other financial loss or damage arising out of defective, damaged, or wrongly delivered goods, over and above the value of the goods themselves.
- Prices include VAT and exclude delivery charges, unless otherwise stated.

There are no additional charges for using credit or debit cards. The total amount you pay is the same regardless of the payment method.
- Home furnishings and made-to-measure products can be shipped worldwide. Products may be dispatched separately.
- Products made-to-order: it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the Upholstery and Furniture will fit into the home and that there is sufficient access for our delivery vehicle to reach the delivery address. Additional charges may apply in certain circumstances.
Arranging and Completing:
- Once your furniture order is ready, we will call you to arrange a delivery date (which may only be on one allotted day each week in your delivery area due to courier availability). We are unable to agree specific delivery times and dates requested.
- Approximately two days before the agreed delivery date we will try to call, leave a voicemail message or send a text to confirm the agreed delivery date and estimated time of our arrival. To help in planning, at your request we will try to call you approximately one hour before our arrival. A courier will deliver to your location of choice, provided there is ample and safe access. Please assist us by clearing pathways and removing fragile items in advance of delivery.
- Products must be carefully checked at time of delivery and signed for by an adult. Any defect or damage must be reported to us immediately.
- House of Hackney will not be liable for the delay in installation caused by late or failed delivery of your items. The delivery lead time quoted in your order confirmation is an approximation only and given in good faith. We therefore recommend that decorators are not booked in advance of you receiving your goods.
- All orders outside of the EU are shipped with DDP (Delivery Duty Paid), meaning that taxes and duties are included in the final price, so there will be no additional charges to pay when you receive the goods.
Returns and cancellations
- We are unable to accept returns on items that are bespoke, personalised or made to specific measurements. This includes wallpaper (which is printed to order), fabric (which will have been cut specifically to your requirements) and all furniture (as these pieces are created specially for you).
- When returning Products, please send them to us using one of the methods detailed below, including your proof of purchase (a receipt or dispatch note).
- We ask that you take reasonable care when handling the Products and return them unopened, unused and in their original packaging where possible.
- Once Products have been delivered, you may return them within 14 days of receipt of delivery by the following methods.
By Post or Courier:
- You may return any Products to us by post at your own cost and risk.
- Please note that we are not liable for any loss or damage to any returned Products in transit and as such, we recommend that you return any Products through a recorded delivery service.
- Please package the Products properly and securely together to ensure that the Products are not damaged in transit.
- If returned Products are lost or damaged in transit, we reserve the right to charge you for (or refund any amounts attributable to) such loss or damage.

- After 24 hours, we reserve the right to charge you for any costs we may incur in relation to your amended or cancelled order.
- On delivery, please check the Products carefully for any possible defects. For Furniture orders you will be asked to sign a delivery note that confirms you are happy with the condition of your order.
- If you believe that any of our Products may be defective or of unsatisfactory quality, please notify us on +44 (0)20 7739 3273 at your earliest convenience. We will need to investigate your claim before we are able to process a return for the damaged goods, so please refrain from carrying out any work on said products (i.e. wallpapering or upholstering) prior to our inspection. Please note that House of Hackney may not be liable if this request is not adhered to..
- We ask that you take reasonable care of the Products while your claim is being investigated. Please do not return any Products which you believe may be defective before contacting us.
- If the Products are confirmed defective or mis-described, we will reimburse you for reasonable return postage costs.
- If all Products confirmed defective constitute the entire order or if all Products were faulty or damaged, the original delivery charge will be reimbursed.
- The term “defective products” does not cover wear and tear, neglect, abuse or misuse of your goods, loss or damage by fire, smoke, explosion, lighting, sunlight, infestation by animals or boring insects, theft or loss, or accidental damage caused by you or a third party.
Product colours and unique features
- Every effort is made to ensure that the Products we supply correspond as closely as possible to the samples displayed online, but there may be variations because natural materials have unique characteristics. No responsibility can be accepted for these variations, which all add to the uniqueness of our Products, including but not limited to the following:
- Our wallpaper is printed to order, so there may be slight colour variations from batch to batch. Therefore, we recommend ordering all the rolls you’ll need in one go – to work out how many that will be, please use our online wallpaper calculator or contact our Customer Services team for assistance. Please note that our Fabric can also vary in colour between batches.
- There is a 3% allowance on fabric alignment.
- All measurements are approximate. Please allow +/- 2 cm variance on sizes stated.
- Much of our Furniture is individually hand-finished and there may be differences between batches. These will be more apparent if orders are placed at different times.
- As part of the design, some Furniture and Upholstery is hand-finished to appear distressed. This will vary between Products and is not a defect.
- We reserve the right to make any change to the internal specifications of our Products or minor external changes where necessary.
Furniture and fabric
- Many of our Fabrics feature natural characteristics (such as slubs, creasing or pile shading) which make them wonderfully unique. Please take the time to understand these characteristics so that you can select a Fabric that is suitable for you.
- We make every effort to display the colours of Products shown on the Website as accurately as possible. However, due to variations in monitors, we cannot guarantee that your display of colour will be accurate. We recommend ordering a sample of the wallpaper and/or Fabric colour you’re interested in to ensure complete satisfaction.
- As all upholstery can be affected by light and heat from the sun, we recommend that it is positioned away from direct sunlight to protect it from fading and premature ageing.
- Wood grain: Our Products are designed to highlight the natural beauty of wood and will often show interesting features such as knots, grain shading and medullary rays where wood is cut across the grain. These will often vary so that no two Products are the same and yours is truly unique.
- Light and heat: All furniture can be affected by light and this can alter its colour over time. We recommend that it is positioned away from direct sunlight and heat to help maintain its colour for longer.
- House of Hackney gift vouchers are available with values ranging from £25 to £500. Multiple gift vouchers can be bought to create a unique value if required. Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
- Our gift vouchers cannot be redeemed or exchanged for cash. They are non-refundable and can only be redeemed at the House of Hackney Showroom in Shoreditch or at www.houseofhackney.com using their unique serial number. They cannot be redeemed at any of our stockists or department store concessions.
