Additional terms and conditions of the customer are emphasized, unless explicitly accepted in writing and in advance by Living Essentials.


All prices stated are expressed in EURO, always including VAT and all other duties or taxes required to be paid by the customer. If delivery, reservation or administrative costs are charged, this will be stated separately. The price statement applies exclusively to the items as described verbatim. The accompanying photos are decorative and may contain elements that are not included in the price.

Despite the fact that the online catalog and the e-commerce website have been compiled with the utmost care, it is still possible that the information provided is incomplete, contains material errors or is not up to date. Obvious mistakes or errors in the offer do not bind Living Essentials. Living Essentials is only obliged to make an obligation of means with regard to the accuracy and completeness of the information provided. Living Essentials is under no circumstances liable in the event of manifest material errors, typesetting or printing errors.

If the customer has specific questions about, for example, sizes, color, availability, delivery time or delivery method, we request the customer to contact our customer service in advance.

The offer is valid while supplies last and can be adjusted or withdrawn at any time by Living Essentials. Living Essentials cannot be held liable for the unavailability of a product. If an offer has a limited period of validity or is made subject to conditions, this will be expressly stated in the offer. Living Essentials is entitled - without giving reasons - to refuse orders, to adjust delivery times, to split deliveries, or to attach other conditions to the delivery.

Items ordered via this online store can be delivered in Belgium or collected in our physical store. For other deliveries, please contact our customer service.
Collection is free in our physical store at Hundelgemsebaan 53 - 9630 Zwalm.

Delivery is made by our own transport service or an externally appointed transporter. Standard curbside delivery in Belgium up to the first threshold is free from €25. Delivery in the Netherlands, France, Germany or to other countries is always subject to a suitable quotation. Goods are always delivered in the original, unopened packaging, unless stated otherwise in the item. Goods on a pallet are delivered under the principle of curbside delivery.

Small items will be sent by post at the applicable postal rate. Unless otherwise agreed or expressly stated otherwise, the goods in stock will be delivered to the customer's place of residence within 30 days of receipt of the order. If the goods are not in stock, the delivery time of our supplier applies. Any visible damage and/or qualitative shortcomings of an item or other shortcomings in delivery must be reported by the customer immediately to Living Essentials within 10 days of receipt.

The risk for loss or damage passes to the customer once he (or a third party designated by him, who is not the carrier) has acquired physical possession of the goods. However, the risk is already transferred to the customer upon delivery to the carrier, if the carrier has been instructed by the customer to transport the goods and this choice was not offered by the webshop.


The delivered items remain the exclusive property of Living Essentials until full payment has been made by the customer. If necessary, the customer undertakes to inform third parties of Living Essentials' retention of title, for example to anyone who would seize items that have not yet been fully paid for.


The provisions of this article only apply to customers who purchase items online from Living Essentials in their capacity as consumers. The customer has the right to withdraw from the agreement within a period of 14 calendar days without giving reasons. The withdrawal period expires 14 calendar days after the day on which the customer or a third party designated by the customer, who is not the carrier, acquires physical possession of the good. To exercise the right of withdrawal, the customer must inform Living Essentials of his decision to withdraw from the contract by an unequivocal statement (e.g. in writing by post or e-mail).

To comply with the withdrawal period, the customer must send his communication regarding his exercise of the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period has expired. The customer must return or hand over the goods to Living Essentials or an authorized carrier without delay, but in any case no later than 14 calendar days after the day on which he communicated his decision to withdraw from the agreement to Living Essentials. The customer is on time if he returns the goods before the period of 14 calendar days has expired. The direct costs of returning the goods will be borne by the customer.

If the returned product has been reduced in value in any way, Living Essentials reserves the right to hold the customer liable and claim damages for any reduction in value of the goods resulting from the use of the goods by the customer that goes beyond what is necessary to determine the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods. Only items that are in the original and unopened packaging, together with all accessories, instructions for use and invoice or proof of purchase, can be returned.

If the customer revokes the agreement before delivery or collection has taken place, Living Essentials will refund all payments received from the customer up to that point, including standard delivery costs, to the customer within a maximum of 14 calendar days after Living Essentials has been informed of the decision of the customer to withdraw from the agreement. For sales contracts that have already been delivered, Living Essentials can wait with the refund until it has received all the goods back, or until the customer has demonstrated that he has returned the goods, whichever comes first.

Any additional costs resulting from the customer's choice of a different method of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery offered by Living Essentials will not be refunded. Living Essentials will reimburse the customer using the same payment method with which the customer performed the original transaction, unless the customer has expressly agreed otherwise; in any case, the customer will not be charged any costs for such reimbursement.

The customer cannot exercise the right of withdrawal for:

the delivery or provision of goods or services whose price is subject to fluctuations in the financial market over which Living Essentials has no influence and which may occur within the withdrawal period;
the delivery of goods manufactured according to customer specifications, or that are clearly intended for a specific person; (e.g. customization)
the delivery of goods that spoil quickly or have a limited shelf life;
the delivery of sealed goods that are not suitable for return for reasons of health protection or hygiene and of which the seal has been broken after delivery;
the delivery of goods that, by their nature, are irrevocably mixed with other products after delivery;
agreements where the customer has specifically requested Living Essentials to visit him to carry out urgent repairs or maintenance;
agreements concluded during a public auction;
the provision of accommodation other than for residential purposes, freight transport, car rental services, catering and services related to leisure activities, if the agreements provide for a specific date or period of performance;

We cannot guarantee the appearance of hairline cracks and/or color differences caused by changes in temperature, humidity and light. Are not considered as defects in conformity, visible or hidden defects: slight differences in the color, discoloration of the wood, textiles, fibers and leather, the functioning of the wood or slight differences in the dimensions of the good, insofar as these cannot be prevented from a technical point of view, or are generally accepted according to customs in the furniture sector, or are inherent to the materials used. We do not provide a guarantee for chairs for catering use. In case of abnormal use, we cannot be held responsible nor accept the complaint.
