Terms & Conditions


Studio DUNN, a Rhode Island LLC, located at 310 Bourne Ave, Bldg 1, Rumford, RI 02916, agrees to sell the products to the Customer on the terms and conditions set forth below. Payment of a DUNN Quote, Pro Forma, Invoice, or online order constitutes a legally binding contract with DUNN to these terms and conditions.

ORDERS AND PAYMENTS

We accept credit card, check, money orders, and wire transfer. DUNN requires payment in order to begin an order. Projected lead times do not begin until payment is received and, in the case of custom orders, the lead times do not begin until payment as well as all design decisions have been finalized. For orders under $2,500.00USD, payment in full is required. For orders over $2,500.00USD, a 50% deposit is due to begin the order with the remaining balance due upon the Customer being notified that the products are ready for shipping. Payment is due upon receipt of invoice even if the Customer is not prepared to receive the shipment. In these cases DUNN, at its sole discretion, can elect to assist the Customer by storing the product until the Customer is ready to receive said shipment.

Customer agrees to pay a finance charge in the amount of 3% of the outstanding balance on any invoice not paid within 30 days.

For payments made by credit card, an additional fee of 3% of the order total will be applied to orders over $5,000.00USD, and all Wholesale Account orders.  All credit card information is processed through PayPal, a secure payment system that accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.

For payments by wire transfer or money order, please contact us for wiring information. For domestic wire transfers a fee of $15.00 will be applied to each transfer under $500.00. All outgoing wire transfer fees are additionally the responsibility of the Customer.

DUNN ships outside of the US on a case-by-case basis. Please contact DUNN for more information regarding international orders. DUNN accepts only credit card or wire transfer for international orders. An additional 1% order fee will be applied for all sales paid for with an international credit card. For international wire transfers a fee of $45.00USD will be applied to each transfer under $1,500.00USD. All outgoing wire transfer fees, both domestic and international, are the responsibility of the Customer. Customer is additionally responsible for payment of all customs and duty fees. DUNN does not accept international checks.

LEAD TIME AND RUSH ORDERS

Each piece is made-to-order with lead times ranging from 6-12 weeks from the date of payment, depending on the product, quantity, and any customization requested. Let us know if you require expedited shipping. Expedited shipping or orders placed with a ‘rush’ are granted on a case-by-case basis and are subject to additional fees. Custom orders may require additional lead time.

CUSTOM ORDERS

DUNN is able to make custom modifications to many of our pieces. We are happy to discuss custom work, lead times, and related charges. Custom order products are expressly made to meet the Customer’s unique specifications. Accordingly, all custom order products are sold as a final sale and no returns will be accepted.

ORDER MODIFICATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS

Each piece is made-to-order. Commencement of manufacturing generally begins within 24-48 hours of payment.

Order modifications by the Customer before the commencement of the manufacturing process are not subject to a modification fee. Order modifications after the commencement of the manufacturing process are subject to a modification fee covering any expenses expelled by DUNN to fulfill the original order.

Orders canceled by the Customer before the commencement of the manufacturing process are not subject to a cancellation fee. Orders canceled after the commencement of the manufacturing process are subject to a cancellation fee. In the rare occasion that DUNN already has a product stocked and boxed, order cancellation will not be subject to a cancellation fee, prior to shipping.

RETURNS AND EXCHANGES

Each piece is made-to-order. For this reason, returns and exchanges are not accepted for any reason other than shipping damage. Damage claims must be reported within 72 hours of package arrival. Please inspect your purchases immediately upon receipt, as no claims can be made after this time. Damaged items may be exchanged after claims have been processed.

INSPECT UPON RECEIPT – Packages must be inspected immediately upon delivery. Failure to report damage within 72 hours of delivery may result in a denied claim.

APPARENT DAMAGE – Should visual inspection upon the receipt of a shipment show damage, shipment should NOT be accepted. Damage must be noted on the delivery receipt and signed by both you and the driver. Failure to do so may result in both DUNN and the carrier refusing to honor a claim.

CONCEALED DAMAGE – When damage is not apparent until the product is unpacked, then a claim for concealed damages must be made within 72 hours of delivery. Retain all packing materials and notify carrier that you wish an inspection report be made.

WARRANTY

DUNN warrants to the Customer that the manufactured goods are first rate and free from defects in workmanship and materials, under normal use and service. For manufactured products that are defective or damaged due to faulty workmanship, DUNN’s sole obligation under this express warranty shall be, at DUNN’s option and expense, to repair the defective product or part, deliver to Customer an equivalent product or part to replace the defective item, or if neither of the two foregoing options is reasonably available, DUNN may, in its sole discretion, refund to Customer the purchase price paid for the defective product. All products that are replaced will become the property of DUNN. This warranty does not cover any damage caused by accident or misuse occurring after such product is delivered including, but not limited to, improper installation.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING

DUNN will ship products in accordance with instructions provided by Customer, using shipping companies and freight forwarders deemed reliable by DUNN and based on, among other things, the destination, weight, and package dimensions. If Customer notifies DUNN that Customer wishes to arrange for shipping and delivery, Customer may specify a preferred carrier and provide Customer’s account information for direct billing by carrier to Customer. In such event, Customer is fully responsible for tracking, damage claims, and insurance, and DUNN shall have no liability after the product has been picked up by Customer’s carrier. DUNN reserves the right to refuse to permit Customer to arrange for shipping if in the opinion of DUNN the products are suitable for shipping only by a DUNN-specified shipper due to dimensions, fragility, or other reasons. All fees for failed deliveries due to fault of Customer or the product recipient are non-refundable. Unless expressly provided, delivery charges do not include charges for liftgate service, inside delivery, unpacking, placement, installation, and debris removal.

DUNN attempts to give accurate estimates of anticipated delivery dates. Actual delivery dates may be subject to circumstances beyond DUNN’s control, including delays caused by government inspections, shipping, and other circumstances. It is Customer’s responsibility to alert DUNN of any changes to shipping addresses that occur during the production lead time.

DUNN ships outside of the US on a case-by-case basis. Please contact DUNN for more information regarding international orders. Customer is responsible for payment of all customs and duty fees.

CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITY

The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the product will fit through elevators, stairwells, corridors, doorways and any other potential obstructions to its final destination. DUNN will not issue refunds in the event that the product does not fit into your space. Dimensions can be found on the product specification sheets available on each product page. Please ask if you are unsure. Additional information can be provided upon request.

VARIATION

Wood is a natural material and the grain characteristics and color will vary from piece to piece. The grain and color may also vary from samples. Glass is hand blown and slight variations and small bubbles are part of the hand blown process.  Hand-applied patina finishes contain natural variations and will gain more character with age.

HOLIDAYS AND EXTENDED LEAD TIMES

The DUNN team takes a holiday break from mid-December to early January.  Due to our production lead time, orders intersecting these dates will experience an additional 3 week lead time.

FORCE MAJEURE

DUNN shall not be liable to the Customer or deemed to be in default for any delay or failure in performance resulting directly or indirectly from acts of God, civil or military authority, acts of terrorism, war, riots, civil disturbances, accidents, fire, explosions, earthquakes, floods, the elements or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of DUNN.
