Bespoke Lampshades, Cushions or other Soft Furnishing items
As each bespoke product is made individually to order, we cannot guarantee the exact positioning of fabric patterns, and this may differ from those on our website, however we will always endeavor to match the patterns as closely as possible, and for bespoke items will discuss this with you in advance. Seams on lampshades cannot be pattern matched, as we are governed by the size of the panel or frame used to make the lampshade. We run a returns policy, however returns on bespoke made to order items cannot be made. When you commission us to make you a bespoke item using your own fabric, we will ask you to please send us a swatch of the fabric with a full description including sizes, of the item prior to starting your order. We will then send you, by email, a quotation and upon acceptance of this quote, we will then send you an invoice for payment of 25% by way of a down payment prior to us commencing work. Please allow 3 weeks until bespoke items are dispatched, however we will discuss the delivery date with you.
Curtains, Blinds and other Window Treatments
We can supply fabric for your window treatment or we can make products from your own fabric. We will however not be responsible for any flaws or shortage of quantities from customers’ own fabric. We offer a fabric checking service, when using customers’ own fabrics, for which a nominal checking fee will apply.
Fabric Ordering: we request that your fabric order is paid for in full prior to placing your order for bespoke items.
Payment Terms: we shall require a down payment of 25% prior to commencing your order with the balance due on completion or delivery.
Delivery: all items are hand-made and will usually be delivered within 4 to 6 weeks of placing an order. Timescales may extend to 8 weeks during busy periods, especially prior to Christmas and holiday periods. A completion date will be arranged once all the components are in place ie poles, tracks etc. We can arrange a fitter if required.
Pricing: all quotes are valid for a period of 1 month from the date of issue.
Goods purchased on your behalf will remain the property of HomebyHomer until your account is settled in full.
Guarantee: Labour is guaranteed for 12months as long as the items have been used for the purpose intended. Any maintenance due to mis-use will incur an hourly call-out charge of £40.
All tracks and poles supplied by us carry the manufacturer’s 5 year guarantee unless otherwise stated.
Photography: Any photographs taken during the project, whether in situ or not, may be used for marketing and publicity purposes.
Lampshades: we recommend using 40w maximum and energy saving light bulbs and to keep the bulb a minimum of 5cm away from the sides of the shades.
Lampshades should comply with BS EN 60598-2-2:2012, The British Standard for Luminaries, and our drum shades have been made with pvc materials that have been tested in the Lighting Association Laboratories and have passed the Glow Wire Test. Fabrics, textiles or paper that is laminated to this pvc take on its properties and become fire resistant also.
Our standard lamps have been refurbished where needed (new light fittings and wire). PAT testing (Portable Appliance Testing) is undertaken on all our standard lamps and evidence of testing is clearly visible in the form of a ‘passed’ label affixed to the lamp.
