COVID-19: Policy and Service Updates for Latest Lockdown
Showrooms

The doors of our Walton Street, Sloane Avenue, Chelsea Harbour and Wimbledon Outlet showrooms are now open!

If you are looking for immediate support, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Our website is trading as normal and our Showroom and Customer Service teams are working remotely so are on hand to assist through video calls, whatsapp, email and phone. We have also extended our telephone operating hours from 9am - 7pm, Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday.

Stock and Deliveries
  • All fabric, wallpaper, cushion and paint (smaller items) deliveries despatched by UPS or DPD are being delivered as normal.
  • Samples orders we post, first class, within 3 working days of receiving your request. There may be extra pressure on the postal service due to COVID-19, please allow up to 10 days for your samples to arrive before contacting us.

  • Larger furniture deliveries - we will still deliver within 7-10 working days as normal. There may, on occasion, be some slight delays to this due the National Lockdown but we will keep you fully informed.
  • Safe No Contact Deliveries Available - we will offer two types of "no contact delivery" where it is possible to do so, ensuring we comply with the government's social distancing advice:

Type 1 (main option): Leave the goods outside your property, notify you by knocking on the door or by phone when they have been delivered at your door for you to then take inside yourself.

Type 2 (where possible): When the delivery team notifies you by phone that they have arrived, you can open the door and then wait in a different room in your house to ensure a safe 2m distance is observed (to where you want the furniture placed), while they bring the item inside, unpack it and put it into position in the room you would like. Please ensure the doors and windows for the room are all open for ventilation.

You will be informed in advance of your delivery occuring, which option will apply to your delivery. If the option provided does not work for you, we can hold on to the goods for you until such a time where we can safely provide the delivery service you are looking for in your specific location.

All of our white glove furniture delivery teams have been trained in the relevant hygiene and new delivery protocols. Gloves and face masks will be worn at all times and they will be sanitising using alcohol-based gel before and after each delivery.

Flexible Storage Options

You may wish for us to store your goods for up to 3 months until a more suitable delivery date can be arranged of your choosing in the near future. That's no problem, just let us know before the goods are despatched and we'll arrange that for you. There would be no charge for this service as we want to be as flexible as possible to help you.
