INTERNET MAPP & IMAPP POLICY:

In respect for both our brick and mortar customers and e-commerce retailers, we request that all online pricing be a minimum of 2.5 times the wholesale price listed on our website.  We cannot police prices across the internet, but do hope that everyone respects this policy and adheres to these guidelines.  If you come across a retailer in violation of these guidelines, please let us know.  Violation of this policy will result in Light & Living requesting the customer to cease and desist in said advertising or promotion.  Additionally, Light & Living will discontinue accepting orders and/or shipping orders for said customer.

UNIQUE PRODUCTS:

Some products in the Light & Living line are handcrafted using natural materials—therefore, no two products are identical and may vary in color, size or finish.  We believe that this adds to the value and quality of those products.  Small irregularities in shapes, surfaces and finishes are hallmarks of hand-craftsmanship and should not be considered defects.

Cowhide products cannot be matched for an order, as they can greatly vary in color and texture.  The ‘family’ of gray can vary from white, light gray, gray to black; and the ‘family’ of brown can vary from cream, tan, brown to black.  Texture can vary from short hair to shaggy and tone can vary from spotted to solid.  

These items cannot be claimed for the reasons listed above.

ONLINE LOGIN:

If you are an existing customer, you can request login details online.  Please note that login details are only issued to resellers in the lighting, gift and home accessories industry.

DAMAGE CLAIMS:

  • Upon arrival your order should immediately be checked for any discrepancies or damage.
  • If you receive a shipment with obvious freight damage, claims must be reported to the driver upon delivery.  Note the damage on the bill of lading, and take a photo, as this will expedite the resolution of your claim with Light & Living.  If you sign for the shipment without reporting any damage, you are responsible for all damages.
  • Light & Living strives to provide our clients with high quality merchandise shipped with carrier-approved materials.  We understand damages and defects may occur and we apologize for the inconvenience.  Claims must be reported to Light & Living within ten (10) days of delivery.
  • Photos of the damage and of any noticeable damage to the inner/outer packaging or cartons are mandatory in order for claims to be processed.  Email item #, quantity and a description of the damage to Customer Service.  All original boxes and packing material must be retained to have your damage claim processed.

RETURNS:

  • All returns, adjustments, deductions or chargebacks must be approved by Light & Living.  A customer service representative will contact you within 3 working days once your damage claim form has been submitted.
  • Unapproved returns will be refused, and you will be responsible for all shipping charges on returned items plus a 20% restocking fee.
  • Any returned product shipped and received broken or damaged because of inadequate packing material will not be credited.
  • Items returned and deemed to have no damage or defect will incur a 20% restocking fee per item along with freight to and from your company’s address.
  • Returned items must be received completely unassembled and unused, in their original condition and packaging, complete with all materials.  Refunds will be issued once we have received the item and it has been determined to be in like-new condition.  In the event an item is returned in a condition where it cannot be resold, you will be charged full wholesale value of the merchandise.
