As with all terms and conditions, these get rather technical and we are sorry if they sound formal. However, they are pretty standard and designed to enhance your e-shopping experience, and make it as easy and secure as possible.

The terms and conditions apply to the use of the joshualumleycontemporary.com website. By placing an order with us, you are agreeing to accept these Terms and Conditions.

If you have any queries relating to our terms and conditions, please contact us before placing an order.


We accept most major credit and debit cards.

All credit and debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

Placing an order

You will receive an order receipt confirmation email as soon as you have placed an order. Please keep it in a safe place as we may ask you for information from it in any correspondence. If you do not receive this email please contact accounts@joshualumleycontemporary.com, so that we may investigate and confirm that your order has been placed successfully.

Product description and conformity

We take every care to ensure that the description and specification of our products are correct at the time of going to press. However, specifications and descriptions of products on this website are not intended to be binding and are intended only to give a general description of the products. Furthermore, while the colour reproduction of the products is a close representation, we cannot accept any responsibility for any variation in colour caused by the browser software or computer system used to view the products. All of our products are handmade, and rugs can vary in size by up to 2.5% in width or length from the size shown. Colours can also vary slightly from rug to rug. By placing via this website you confirm your understanding and acceptance of this.

Stock availability

We endeavour to keep our website fully up to date at all times. However orders for all products are subject to availability and we will inform you as soon as possible, after placing an order if, for any reason, the product you have ordered is not available or subject to any delay.


Deliveries to mainland UK addresses are free of charge and we endeavour to make them within three working days (Monday to Friday) using our shipping partner, UPS.

We deliver to most national and international destinations. Deliveries to all international addresses will take longer, but we try to send all orders by the quickest route possible.

A flat rate of £30 per individual rug, for shipping to all EU and EFTA countries (Norway and Switzerland) applies for all rugs up to a maximum size of 12 m sq. Multiple orders for international shipments will be calculated on a case-by-case basis as will shipments to all non-EU/EFTA destinations. Please contact josh@joshualumleycontemporary.com for a quotation.

If your delivery address is outside of the UK, you may have to pay import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. You must meet any additional charges for customs clearance. Please note, customs policies vary widely from country to country. We recommend you contact your local customs office for further information.
