For all items held in stock we require full payment, including any delivery charge, when you place your order. We try to keep most items in stock, although some larger pieces of furniture may not always be immediately available.

For all items not held in stock we require a 50% deposit of the full amount, including any delivery charge, when you place your order. The remaining 50% must be paid when we inform you that your goods are ready for delivery. No item will be delivered until full payment has been received. We will inform you when confirming your order and before processing payment if an item is not held in stock.

Where we hold an item in stock, we will deliver the item to you within 30 days of receiving your payment and normally within 14 days.

Although we hold a limited stock of most pieces in our classical range, some pieces will inevitably be out of stock at any one time. We will let you know when confirming your order if an item is held in stock and, if it is not, we will inform you of an estimated delivery time. For items out of stock, we will not process any payment until we have advised you of a likely delivery time.

As all of our range of classical Chinese furniture is handcrafted and shipment times from China can vary, please allow up to 90 days from receipt of your deposit for delivery of any non-stock items. In most cases we will be able to deliver well within the 90-day period.

We will notify you when your goods are ready for delivery and will make every effort to arrange a delivery time that is suitable for you.

Note that delivery charges quoted on this Web site apply to the majority of mainland UK addresses only, and that there may be an additional charge for deliveries to offshore addresses or to more remote parts of the mainland (such as the north of Scotland and Cornwall). We will always inform you of any additional delivery charges before processing any payment.

We can also arrange deliveries outside of the UK. Please contact us and we will be happy to provide a quote for shipping charges.

*Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that there is sufficient access to deliver any products you have ordered. Our delivery team will make every reasonable effort to deliver your furniture into a room you specify but cannot be held responsible if a particular piece will not fit, or for damage caused due to insufficient access.
