  • Furniture

  • Upholstered seating products or textile decoration elements

Used products are only included in the same quantity and type as the newly purchased Product.

  • When the used product recovered is greater than 20 kilos: at the point of delivery, or

  • When the used product recovered is less than 20 kilos and can be transported without equipment: to a local collection point that TSF finances and organises or has organised. The Customer shall deposit the used product at his/her own expense and under his/her own responsibility.

When a used product has been recovered, it cannot be returned to the Customer.

For any request to recover a used product, the Customer must contact TSF’s Customer Service Department by email no later than 24 hours after TSF sends the confirmation of his/her order, to the following email address: TSF shall then verify compliance with the recovery conditions, namely:

·        The compatibility between the type of product whose recovery is desired and the newly purchased Product, and

·        The absence of a risk to the health and safety of the carrier.

7.5 Transfer of risks

Any risk of loss or damage to the Products shall pass to the Customer at the time the Customer or a third party designated by him/her, and other than the carrier, takes physical possession of the Products.

Consequently, it is the Customer’s responsibility to verify the order upon receipt in order to verify its condition in accordance with the provisions of Article 8.


TSF takes particular care with the packaging of each Product, and the packaging is designed to protect the Products during transportation. TSF selects its carriers for their expertise and the best possible service according to the Customers’ choice. Despite these precautions, TSF cannot guarantee that the Product shall not be damaged.

It is therefore essential, at the time of receipt of the order, that the Customer check that the delivered Products comply with the order, before signing the delivery note, by:

·        Checking the condition of the package(s);

·        Checking the condition of the Product(s) inside the package(s);

·        Checking that the Product(s) comply with the delivery note on the one hand and the purchase order on the other.

This verification is deemed to have been carried out once the Customer has signed the carrier’s delivery note.

In the event of anomalies observed during delivery, the Customer must issue the necessary, detailed, legible and most precise reservations possible (breakages, damage, non-compliance: Product error, different colour and/or dimensions; missing items, etc.).

When delivery is made by carrier, the Customer must state his/her reservations on the delivery note. Furthermore, the Customer may complete the reservations mentioned on the delivery note and send photos by email to, no later than three days after the date of receipt or collection of the Products.

In its complaint, the Customer must provide all the details relating to his/her complaint.

After validation of the information sent by the Customer, TSF undertakes to replace, at its expense and as soon as possible, the Product damaged during transportation or to reimburse it if replacement is not possible.

After this period or in the absence of specific reservations made by the Customer, the delivery shall be considered as compliant with the order, without prejudice to the application of the legal guarantee of conformity and hidden defects.


TSF is liable for any non-conformity of the Products under the conditions of Articles L.217-4 et seq. of the French Consumer Code and hidden defects of the item sold under the conditions provided for in Articles 1641 et seq. of the French Civil Code.

With regard to the legal guarantee of conformity, the Customer:

- has a period of two years from the delivery of the Product to act;

- may choose between repair or replacement of the Product, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L. 217-9 of the French Consumer Code;

- is exempted from providing proof of the existence of the lack of conformity of the Product during the twenty-four (24) months following delivery of the Product for new products and during the six (6) months following delivery for old/second-hand Products.

On the other hand, the Customer may not challenge compliance by invoking a defect that he/she knew or could not have been unaware of when he/she placed the order.

The consumer has a period of two years from the delivery of the good to obtain the implementation of the legal guarantee of conformity in the event of the appearance of a lack of conformity. During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity and not the date of its occurrence.

Where the contract of sale of the good provides for the supply of digital content or a digital service on a continuous basis for a period of more than two years, the legal warranty shall apply to this digital content or digital service throughout the planned period of provision. During this period, the consumer is only required to establish the existence of the lack of conformity affecting the digital content or the digital service and not the date of its appearance.

The legal guarantee of conformity entails an obligation for the professional, where applicable, to provide all updates necessary to maintain the conformity of the good.

The legal guarantee of conformity gives the consumer the right to repair or replace the good within thirty days of his/her request, without cost and without major inconvenience for him/her.

If the good is repaired under the legal guarantee of conformity, the consumer benefits from a six-month extension of the initial guarantee.

If the consumer requests the repair of the good, but the seller requires it to be replaced, the legal guarantee of conformity is renewed for a period of two years from the date of replacement of the good.

The consumer may obtain a reduction in the purchase price by retaining the good or terminating the contract by being reimbursed in full against return of the good, if:

1° The professional refuses to repair or replace the good;

2° The repair or replacement of the good takes place after a period of thirty days;

3° The repair or replacement of the good causes a major disadvantage for the consumer, in particular when the consumer definitively bears the costs of taking back or removing the non-compliant good, or if he/she bears the costs of installing the repaired or replacement good;

4° The non-compliance of the good persists despite the seller’s unsuccessful attempt to bring the good into compliance.

The consumer is also entitled to a reduction in the price of the good or to the termination of the contract when the lack of conformity is so serious that it justifies an immediate reduction in the price or the termination of the contract. The consumer is not then obliged to request the repair or replacement of the goods in advance.

The consumer is not entitled to terminate the sale if the lack of conformity is minor.

Any period of immobilisation of the property with a view to its repair or replacement shall suspend the remaining guarantee until delivery of the repaired property.

The rights mentioned above result from the application of Articles L. 217-1 to L. 217-32 of the French Consumer Code.

A seller who obstructs the implementation of the legal conformity guarantee in bad faith incurs a civil fine of up to €300,000, which may be increased to 10% of the average annual turnover (Article L. 241-5 of the French Consumer Code).

The consumer also benefits from the legal warranty against hidden defects pursuant to Articles 1641 to 1649 of the French Civil Code, for a period of two years from the discovery of the defect. This guarantee gives the right to a price reduction if the good is kept by the Customer or to a full refund if the good is returned.

The Customer may decide to implement the warranty against hidden defects in the item sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the French Civil Code and in this case, he/she may choose between the termination of the sale or a reduction in the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the French Civil Code.

In the event that the Customer finds a compliance defect and/or hidden defect, he/she must inform TSF by one of the means of contact mentioned in Article 2. The procedure to be followed to return the Products shall then be indicated to him/her by TSF.


TSF may not under any circumstances be held liable in the event of non-performance or poor performance of the contractual obligations attributable to the Customer, particularly when entering his/her order.

TSF may not be held liable, or considered as having failed herein, for any delay or non-performance of any of its obligations described in these General Terms and Conditions, when the cause of the delay or non-performance is related to a case of force majeure as defined by Article 1218 of the French Civil Code and the case law of the French courts and tribunals.

It is further specified that TSF does not control websites that are directly or indirectly linked to the Website. Consequently, TSF may not incur any liability for the information published therein. Links to third party websites are provided for information purposes only and no guarantee is provided as to their content.

TSF warrants that the Products presented on the Website comply with the French regulations in force and the standards applicable in France.
TSF cannot guarantee that the Products comply with the regulations and standards specific to the country of delivery and/or consultation of the Website.
The Customer is solely liable for compliance with the regulations applicable in his/her country of residence or in the country of destination of the Products. It is his/her responsibility to obtain information from the relevant local authorities about any restrictions on the import, export or use of the Products that he/she intends to order on the Website and TSF may not under any circumstances be held liable in the event of damage, claims, or actions resulting from the non-compliance of the Products with a regulation, a law or a standard outside France.
