1.1 Product Specifications


Bevan Funnell is continually developing its products and reserves the right to amend the specification of its products without prior notice in relation to future sales.


Goods supplied may differ from those displayed. Significant variations from the display model will be highlighted and Bevan Funnell undertakes to make you aware of any changes to specification which may apply at the time of ordering, or as soon after as reasonably possible.


The high quality leather used in our products is a natural product and, as such, may show some variance in colour or texture and may include natural marks and scars which are integral to the hide. Customers should also note that some leathers, fabrics and wood finishes may change colour according to: the conditions in which it was stored; exposure to sunlight and / or heat and the level of central heating amongst other factors.


Wood leather and fabric samples are representative and may vary from the finished product. We will endeavour to provide absolute consistency.


We endeavour to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear in brochures, on our website, on adverts, advertising and any other marketing material, however, due to the limitations of printing and variations in the colour settings of personal computers, we cannot always accurately reflect the colour of the product delivered.


Trade Descriptions Act, Merchandise Marks Act. The terms “Mahogany”, “Yew”, “Walnut” and “Oak”, when applied to any furniture items may denote colour of finish only and shall not be interpreted to mean that the article concerned is constructed only of that material.

1.2 Measurements


The measurements of all furniture made by us will be as accurate as possible, but are nevertheless approximate.

1.3 Prices


All prices include VAT levied at the current rate in force, where appropriate.


We reserve the right to change prices at our discretion. We publish the most up-to-date prices we can on our website and will undertake to inform you of any changes which may affect you. Once you have received your order confirmation, the prices of those items will not be changed.


Goods will be invoiced at the prices shown on your order confirmation. In the rare event an order confirmation does not exist, goods will be invoiced at the price ruling on the day of dispatch unless otherwise agreed in writing.

1.4 Payments


Full payment is required before despatch of your order.


Our terms are normally 50% at confirmation and 50% before despatch. We reserve the right to ask for 100% at confirmation. Other terms are negotiable but will not apply unless confirmed in writing.


We may offer credit facilities on a ‘trade account’ basis subject to our discretion. Customers who wish to open a trade account must do so by completing a Trade Account Application. Bevan Funnell reserves the right not to grant a trade account. A trade account will give you access to trade prices but does not necessarily include credit terms.


Goods will not be despatched until full payment has been received or the terms of your account with us have been met. In most instances, we will not begin manufacturing your order until your deposit payment has been paid.


We are entitled to withdraw from our supply commitments in cases where you have filed for bankruptcy, have made an arrangement (voluntary or otherwise) with your creditors or fail (partially or wholly) to pay for previous deliveries

For all deliveries we, or our carriers, will contact you to arrange a delivery date when the furniture can be delivered.

Bevan Funnell Group Ltd will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by you through any reasonable or unforeseen delay in the course of manufacturing or delivering your order.


With regard to UK trade account holders where delivery is to their showroom or warehouse, the trade price shall include delivery to those premises,  subject to our minimum order value, and delivery to a private customer shall incur a surcharge.


For countries other than the UK, prices should be considered ex-factory. Additional charges may be made for loading containers, delivery to shippers or other destinations, special packaging and insurance. Customers will be liable for import duties and taxes of the country to which the furniture is being dispatched. All orders for the US are normally shipped into AMPAC, NC.    US customers will therefore be responsible for any onward shipping.

1.6 Returns and refunds


If we make a mistake with your order, or if the goods received are in some way faulty, we have a no quibble returns policy. Simply return the item and we will provide you with a replacement. We will pay your return delivery costs. Returns should be made within a reasonable time frame and in original, undamaged packaging. Upon signing for the goods when received from the carrier, you are accepting that they are in satisfactory condition and free from damage. Bevan Funnell will not accept responsibility for any damage caused to the goods after you have signed for them. Should you wish to reject goods on the basis of unsatisfactory condition, then you should do so by writing “unsatisfactory” on the delivery note and not accept the goods from the carrier. You then need to write to us and explain that the goods were unsatisfactory and we will provide you with a refund, or replacement. This is also the case for when the goods are signed for on your behalf by someone else. For terms and conditions regarding bespoke made items, please refer to the section titled 1.6.2. Bevan Funnell reserves the right to amend this policy at its own discretion at any time, without prior notification.
