Should any fabric or product not be available the Company will notify the customer and permit the customer to choose an alternative from its then current range of fabrics and products. In the event that the fabric or product ordered differs in price from the replacement, an adjustment upwards or downwards of the price will be made and any adjustment will be payable or allowable (as the case may be) in the final payment. In the event that no fabric satisfactory to the customer is available the customer has the right to cancel the contract within seven days of being notified by the Company that the fabric of the customer's original choice is not available and the deposit placed on order shall be refunded.
Choosing a different fabric or altering sizes will change the appearance of the design and the feel of the design’s seating area and therefore cannot be compared to the showroom or website display design.
