There is no minimum opening order or minimum reorder required to qualify for Designer Net Pricing. A valid tax resale certificate and business card are required to qualify for Designer Net Pricing. The Julian Chichester Stocking Dealer Program is for qualified retail stores ONLY and requires a $10,000 USD minimum opening order. A minimum re-order of $5,000 USD per quarter, or $20,000 per year, is required to maintain stocking dealer pricing.

Upon meeting the initial minimum order of $10,000, a one-year grace period from receipt of deposit will be in place.

If you are unfortunate enough to receive product that has a manufacture defect or incorrect in any way we will do our very best to repair, replace or refund the product. In order to assist us in providing an excellent service and to avoid ambiguous situations we ask that all damage, or short deliveries be reported within 48 hours of receiving delivery. After this time, we cannot be held responsible for any product found to be damaged or missing. All returns must be authorized in advance by Julian Chichester Customer Service. Unauthorized returns will be refused. A 25% restocking fee, plus the cost of return freight will be accessed on all goods deemed not to be defective. It is the purchaser’s responsibility to properly re-package authorized goods for return to prevent damage. Refunds on first-quality goods, if applicable, will not be granted until returned items are received at our High Point, NC warehouse and inspected. We reserve the right to impose additional fees or refuse the refund due if items are poorly packed and arrive damaged.
We make every effort to ensure the product description is correct and accurate in all publications. However, our products are often made of natural materials, none of which are identical. Often each piece is subtly different from the next in shade, colour and / or texture. This is particularly true of products that contain natural materials. The products photographed in our marketing are representative of the item but may not be an identical match to another piece due to the variations in materials as noted above. Customers concerned about the matching of products should contact our sales staff who will be able to talk in detail about the individual products they are interest in.
When ordering a custom piece of furniture the client agrees to pay a non-refundable deposit of 50% of the value of the item. Only once this has been received can we start the custom process. We cannot accept the return of custom items for reason other than a manufacture defect or not matching the agreed description. When ordering a custom item, we will provide an estimate of the time to delivery. We do not guarantee this estimate as many factors can affect the time it takes to manufacture and transport the furniture. All Lead times stated for custom pieces start from receipt of final signed CAD drawing & custom finish sample approval. This approval must be in writing on all pages of CAD. It is the responsibility of the client to check the CAD drawings provided Julian Chichester for approval. Julian Chichester is not responsible for any discrepancies when the goods are delivered unless faulty.
Payment in full is required immediately for all items in stock. A 50% deposit is required for all backordered items with payment in full required once the item is back in inventory. We will hold items for 30 days prior to release if payment in full is received. A 50% deposit is not a guarantee that we will indefinitely hold inventory. Storage Fees of $100 per week will apply to orders held 30 days after payment in full.
