SECTION 5 – PRODUCTS OR SERVICES
Certain products or services may be available exclusively online through the Site. These products or services may have limited quantities and are subject to return or exchange only according to our Return/Exchange Policy. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of our products that appear at the store. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice, at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time. Any offer for any product or service made on this Site is void where such offer is prohibited under applicable law.
At Hewn, we take tremendous pride in the quality and craftsmanship of our furniture, selecting only the best from our suppliers. Should you have any concerns or believe there is a quality issue, we will work with you to correct it, in accordance with the policy below:
We only accept returns/exchanges if your purchase has any manufacturing defect, please inspect the item(s) upon receipt, and if you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us within 7 days of delivery or pickup to arrange a return. We do not accept returns for items picked up from our showroom. Items that have been ordered online and delivered to you must be returned within 30 days of delivery - Hewn will not be responsible for return pickup fees. We regret to inform you that only regular priced items that have been delivered online may be exchanged. Delivery and handling charges are non-refundable.
As individually customized pieces or other modified pieces according to your instructions are made to your specifications, we are unable to accept returns or exchanges. If however, such items arrive with a manufacturing defect or are damaged, we will repair or replace the defective or damaged area. If that is not possible, we will try our best to arrange for an exchange. We reserve the right to determine the best course of action.
Because wood is a natural product, variations in color and grain pattern are to be expected. While we select top quality woods, premium stains and topcoats to create a high quality finished product, variations in wood color or natural imperfections found in wood such as mineral streaks or spots may be visible and will not be considered defects.
Some of our Products are made from recycled/reclaimed teak that is typically obtained from old houses, bridges and roads. Indentations, prior nail holes, patches and other marks are inherent in the product and part of the character of the wood. These are on top of the variations in color and grain patterns to be reasonably expected in wood.
Because marble is a natural product, variations in color, pattern, texture and veining are to be expected. These differences and variations in stone should be considered as the beauty of natural stone instead of flaws. While we select top quality marble, such variations, including minor crystalline deposits may be visible and will not be considered defects.
Because most of our Products are manufactured by hand, slight variations to the quoted dimensions may occur. All dimensions quoted are nominal and subject to reasonable tolerances.
We do not accept exchanges due to these above mentioned factors. We also do not accept exchanges due to any indentations, prior nail holes, patches, mineral deposits and other marks that are considered inherent at our sole discretion. Finishes are not guaranteed to be a perfect match with the pictures shown on the Site.
Images and diagrams displayed on the Site are for reference only. Due to the inherent variations in products made from natural materials, the item you receive may vary from what is shown on the website. If no tolerance is acceptable, we recommend that you select and purchase at our showroom.
All delivery dates and times provided by us (whether stated in the invoice or otherwise) are estimates only. Accordingly, we shall not be responsible and shall not accept any liability for not being able to deliver a product within the specified time resulting from shipment/delivery delays from our suppliers. Deliveries should be fulfilled within 5-7 working days (approximate) and delivery dates and times will be arranged with you in advance. Our delivery charges are listed in the following table:
Total Order Value*
Delivery Charges (S$)
$ 0 and up
Free of charge
* Total Order Value includes any discounts you may receive
The customer is responsible for making sure the items ordered can fit in the room of choice and may be delivered through all entry points such as doorways and elevator entrances. Access to the delivery areas should also be clear. Deliveries only possible by staircase will be at an additional surcharge of S$10.00 per floor. Any additional costs in relation to effecting delivery of the products into your premises, e.g. the use of a crane, are your responsibility and you shall pay for such additional costs immediately on demand. If it is not possible for the products to be delivered into your premises, and unless you then accept delivery of the products under such circumstances, the products will be returned to our warehouse and you will be invoiced for the transport fee for any transport and re-delivery.
If orders are unable to be delivered due to incorrect delivery address given, or the absence of persons to take the delivery (after the delivery has been scheduled), we will either arrange for a refund or reschedule the delivery. In such cases, the products will be returned to our warehouse, we will charge a restocking fee of S$80, and you will be invoiced for any transport and re-delivery.
We reserve the right to make part deliveries of any order and each part delivery shall constitute a separate contract in respect of the products delivered on the same terms and conditions as set out herein. Failure to deliver all the products you have ordered shall not invalidate the contract as regards any part deliveries. The risk of any loss of or damage to, products delivered to you shall pass to you upon delivery of the purchased products to you. Title to such products shall not pass to you until we have received payment in full of the price of such products and all other amounts payable by you to us in respect of such products.
You agree not to hold us responsible for any damage to any fixtures or fittings arising from the moving of items into the delivery premises such as scratches and indentations on any flooring or walls.
Assembly and installation
We reserve the right to assemble certain items on site (as required and as advised) and shall not be held responsible for any damage such as scratches and indentations on any flooring or walls at the venue of assembly. We do not provide installation services that require drilling to ceilings or walls.
SECTION 6 – OTHER SERVICES
We may provide other services to you from time to time including but without limitation services such as sanding, varnishing, darkening, cutting and painting. The general terms stated in this document for deliveries will apply.
Most of these services such as sanding, varnishing, darkening, cutting and painting may be invasive on the surface of your furniture and are irreversible processes. By engaging us to provide these services to you, you agree that you will not hold us liable should the desired effects not be achieved. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to reject any requests for these services should we deem them unsuitable for your furniture.
Deposits received from you as part payment for such services will not be refundable.
The terms of service stated in this agreement shall apply for these services.
SECTION 7 – ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION

In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.
