The friendly driver(s) will deliver direct to your door and will assist you where they can - however they may require help with difficult access. For extra large furniture items or large orders, where you may require additional assistance, we offer a two-man service delivering to the 'room of choice' - this is available on selected ranges and based on price on request. Please note that some pieces of furniture, especially items being delivered to outlying areas, may be transported on pallets and are usually delivered to the kerbside only. Before placing your order please ensure someone will be there at the address to receive delivery of the order - and that it fits through the door!
On delivery of your order, please ensure that the person unwrapping the item is careful to keep the packaging intact. Please note that unfortunately we can not accept furniture returns that do not have their original packaging. It is also important to ensure that the packaging is intact and not damaged before signing for your delivery.
Delivery of furniture outside of the UK mainland is based on price on request - areas outside of the UK mainland include Northern Island, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Isles of Scilly and the Scottish Islands. Some remote areas such as the Scottish Highlands may also incur an additional charge. For a quote, please contact us directly either via email at email@example.com or call +44 (0)1244 911 890.

Returns & Refunds
If for any reason you decide to return an item, we offer a 14 day (no quibble) returns policy, from the day you receive your package.
To be eligible for a return, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a Returns Form. Please complete the Returns Form, pop it in with your order and return it back to us at the address below. Your item must also be unused and in the same condition that you received it in. Where possible please ensure it is in its original packaging.
Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure that the item is returned to us safely. Unfortunately we are unable to refund return postage or courier costs for items being returned for refunds or exchanges. If you are returning an item of significant value or size, we recommend that you use a trackable delivery service or purchase insurance.
The Den & Now
LIGHTING: All Industville Lighting products can be returned directly to Industville for free using the DPD returns label, which comes with each order. Please note that post codes BT, JE and GY do not qualify for free returns via DPD.
DRIED FLOWER BOUQUETS: Our exclusive range of dried flower bouquets are handmade to order by Haus of Botanica. Due to their fragile and perishable nature, the bouquets are non-refundable due to change of mind. Please bear this in mind before placing your order.
FURNITURE & MIRRORS: Please note that furniture and mirrors must be returned in their original wrappings, unused and non-assembled (if applicable). Therefore please ensure that the person unwrapping the item is careful to keep the packaging intact. This is also essential in preventing the item being damaged on its return. Unfortunately we can not accept furniture or mirror returns that do not have their original packaging.
If you would like to return an item of furniture then please get in touch (within 14 days) and we would be happy to arrange a collection from you, by our experienced furniture courier team. Please note that any furniture returned to us due to 'change of mind' will incur a £40 - £70 collection charge, depending on the size and weight of the item(s). Smaller or lighter furniture items such as side tables, or mirrors, you may wish to return directly by courier instead. To receive a personalised quote for collections, please email us at email@example.com or call us on 01244 911 890.
Furniture which comes with a five year warranty (please refer to individual product descriptions) is covered for manufacture or product quality issues and can be returned for a refund within a period of 180 days, replaced free of charge up to 365 days, or will qualify for 'on site' repair up to 5 years. To qualify it must be a valid manufacture issue, and not general wear and tear or change of mind.
Once we receive and check your returned items, we will send you an email to confirm receipt of goods and refund details. Refund payments will include the cost of the product(s) as well as the original postage paid when placing your order, unless the delivery was free of charge. Refunds will usually be processed within a few days of receiving the returned product, to allow us time to check the items being returned. The refund will automatically be made to your credit/debit card or original method of payment. Please allow around 2-5 working days for the funds to show on your account - some banks may vary, so please check with your branch first.
If for any reason you would like to exchange an item, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will liaise with you directly regarding a replacement. Please note that some of the products we carry are one-off pieces, therefore we do not carry multiples. However where possible we will look to provide you with a close alternative, or a refund.
We carry a mixture of vintage and new products. All vintage items therefore have natural flaws, which adds to their charm and character. We try to show all items available through our online store in their natural state. However, as some of our products are made from reclaimed wood and/or are handcrafted, you may find that some products have subtle variations from one piece to the next, or that wood grains and sizes vary slightly and this is therefore not seen as a fault. If for any reason you wish to return the item, please follow the return guidelines outlined above.
We take great care in wrapping our items to ensure they arrive with you safely. However in the event that your order does happen to arrive damaged, please contact us immediately via email at email@example.com or call 01244 911 890. We will then arrange directly with you to have the item returned to us and for a replacement to be sent out at the earliest opportunity - please note that any collections (e.g.: furniture) and replacement orders can only be made from/to the delivery address on the original order. If the item is out of stock or a one-off piece, we shall where possible offer an exchange or replacement. Alternatively we can issue you with a full refund.
FURNITURE & MIRRORS: Please ensure that prior to signing for furniture or mirror deliveries, you check that the packaging is intact - this is very important as we use a third party courier and unfortunately will be unable to accept claims for damages that have been caused in transit where the item has been signed for as 'packaging intact'. If once you unpack the furniture or mirror you find that it is damaged in any way, please notify us immediately via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, ideally within 24 hours of delivery. It would be helpful to attach photographic evidence of any damages (caused to the item in question and/or packaging) in order for us to process your claim as quickly as possible. Any damaged item will then be either replaced free of charge, or a refund will be issued.
