How to buy from our website

As you browse around our site you will see “add to cart” buttons which enable you to add products to your shopping cart. Feel free to use this as a virtual shopping list, as you can just as easily remove them at any time, and adjust quantities up or down too. Please note that you will lose the contents of your shopping cart when you leave the site, if you have not completed your purchase beforehand.

You can view the contents of your cart at any time using the “Cart” option on the menu at the foot of the site. To place your order, click the “Checkout” button at the foot of the shopping cart page, at which point we will ask you for some address details and take your card payment online. You can alternatively click on the "Mail Order" link instead and send us a cheque along with a printout of your order using your browser's print option to print the page you are presented with.

Product Information

"Delivered" prices are quoted for UK Mainland deliveries - see the section below on 'delivering your order' for further information on this. We reserve the right to adjust prices up or down from time to time, withour prior notice.

Please note that any levies/taxes charged for international deliveries are not calculated or monitored by funky lifestyles and are therefore not the responsibility of funky lifestyles. We recommend that customers requiring delivery outside of the UK should check with their local customs officials or post office for more information. Funky Lifestyles Limited is not VAT Registered.

We have used best endeavours to make our images as representative of the product as possible. Please note however that lighting can affect the percieved colours of images in photographs and that colours can be displayed differently from one computer monitor to another, and so the colours of products seen on the web site may therefore vary from the actual product.

Larger items of furniture such as cabinets, beds, wardrobes, shelving and desk systems may require some assembly on your part.

Paying for your Order

We accept credit or debit card payments with cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Electron, Swich and Solo. You can even use a PayPal online account to pay for goods – especially handy if you are active on eBay!

We can also accept orders by mail, using the printable mail order form, which you should complete in full and send together with a cheque made payable to “funky lifestyles ltd.” to our office address listed above. You should write your card number and expiry date on the reverse of the cheque, and please note that we cannot begin to process your order until the funds are cleared through our bank.

By purchasing from us, you confirm that the credit, debit or store card that is being used is yours and understand that all credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery. All goods remain the property of funky lifestyles until paid for in full. In order to guard ourselves and our customers from fraud we deliver to the card holders adress, which is assumed to be the one you give at the beginning of the order process as the customer's address.

How safe are your personal details during checkout?

Your confidential information is protected in transit from your computer during checkout using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol with an encryption key length of 128 bits - the highest commercially available.

We use the services of third party company “Paypal” to perform the actual card payment transaction and only Paypal and the acquiring bank shall have access to your card details during the online checkout process - we do not store any financial information you provide. . In the event that you pay for your order via telephone to us, your card details will be entered directly into the 'Virtual Terminal' for payment processing and, again, your details will not be stored by ourselves.

Paypal have over 71 million accounts in over 45 countries and may offer you a no-obligation option to open a Paypal account at the end of your purchase.

Delivering your Order

Delivered prices published on the site and quoted to you at the time of ordering are for specifically for delivery within the mainland United Kingdom, which you acknowledge by accepting these terms. Please contact us to enquire about the cost of delivery outside the UK, to the nether regions of Scotland, Ireland, the Channel Islands or other destinations not included in mainland United Kingdom prior to placing your order, and we will be happy to quote! Understandably, we are unable to alter the delivery address once the delivery process is under way.

We endeavour to ship received orders of smaller items within one working week where the good(s) are in stock, though you should allow up to 28 days for delivery of your order. Some items however, where the customer specifies a particular fabric or finish, or where the goods are manufactured to order, can take a number of weeks to be manufactured and subsequently shipped (a “bespoke order”). On receipt of an order, funky lifestyles will advise the customer on a more accurate timescale, where appropriate. Please refer to the information provided with the products on our web site for a guide to which items consistute a “bespoke order”.

Delivery shall take place via a carrier appointed by funky lifestyles and shall be a weekday delivery to your doorstep. The driver is neither obliged or insured to enter your promises, but may do so at their discretion if invited to do so by yourself.  If you have ordered heavier or bulkier items please make suitable arrangements for assistance in transporting the goods through necessary doors, corridors or stairways and that larger items will fit through such pathways. Where the item(s) are especially bulky and/or heavy we will arrange delivery via a specialist carrier and will arrange with you a convenient delivery date. This will be stated in the product description where relevant. If you are not present to accept a delivery arranged on an agreed date via our specialist carrier service, you may be liable for redelivery charges. Similarly, in the unlikely event that you are repeatedly unable to accept delivery of your order, and it is subsequently returned to us by our carrier, this will incur a recoverable delivery charge, should you subsequently require the delivery rearranging, or choose to cancel your order with us.

Our deliveries require a signature. For smaller packages, if you are unavailable to accept the delivery, the carrier will leave a card detailing instructions on how to rearrange the delivery. Please note that you should document any transit damage at the time of receipt on the delivery note. Please also see our Returns Policy regarding faulty or damaged goods.

Goods returned to us should be fit for resale, in original unused, unassembled and undamaged condition, and should be returned in their original, undamaged packaging. Self assembly items cannot be returned once assembly has begun. Your statutory rights as a consumer remain unaffected.
