We’ve built a platform using technology to improve the entire procurement process - from inspiration to installation. The platform supports the creative process of finding and choosing the right furniture for a project, while it’s easy to move on to requesting quotes and placing orders. It’s powered by a knowledgeable team of account managers, procurement specialists and project managers who can help you deliver large-scale projects. We offer additional services including design consultancy, consolidated delivery and on-site installation. Find out what Clippings can do for you and your business in a personal demo here.
For everyone who creates or manages spaces with great design professionally – we are a trade-only platform. Clippings is for interior designers, architects, companies that need furniture for their offices or retail environments, hospitality businesses and the public sector. See the spaces that were created using Clippings here.
Yes, you can create as many projects as you want on the platform for free. We make a margin on the products we sell. There might be additional fees for particular services, e.g. design consultation or on-site installation, but we will always clearly outline these costs to you prior to purchase.
Oh, where to begin?! Check out our projects overview to see spaces Clippings helped to deliver. From co-working spaces, restaurants and hotels to cruise ships, high-end residential properties and build-to-rent apartment schemes, creative up-starts and big names have used our platform and services to source amazing design.
A lot! We’ve partnered with more than 650 furniture and lighting brands. You can see the full list here.

You can request fabric samples for most upholstered items directly on the product page. Click on any colour variation, select a variant from the listing and click Request a sample.

In most cases, we can only give you instant quotes if the products you specified are on Clippings. If your specification includes products from outside of Clippings, please get in touch with our team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

We ask for the delivery address so we can give you a reliable estimate of the shipping costs. You can also enter your business address, but please be aware that the shipping costs might change when you place the order and enter the final address details.
Our quotes are valid for 60 days. You’ll need to create a new specification from your board and submit a new quote request with the same items in your original quote.
If the quote was still in specification stage and you hadn’t submitted the quote request, open the quote and reactivate it by clicking on “Restore”. The quote is active again and you can make changes if necessary and resubmit it.
All your archived quotes are saved under the Closed drop down menu in the Quotes section of your project. Learn more about requesting and managing quotes in our step-by-step guides.

The lead time includes the time it takes the item to produce and deliver an item to our warehouse. It doesn’t include the delivery from our warehouse to your project site.
Lead times for products listed on Clippings are always updated when brands inform us about changes. Our team can help you find alternatives true to your design vision that can make the deadline. Get in touch with your account manager or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
POA means price on application. You can save POA products from Clippings to your board and add them to a specification to get a quote.

We don’t. All products are either made to order or are sent to Clippings from the brands’ warehouse when an order is placed.
The board is the place where you can save all products to that you’re considering for a project. These might include different product edits for the same room, e.g. if you want to create options for different budgets or styles.
The specification is a selection of products from the board that you want a quote for. The main difference to the board is that you now specify the quantity for each piece. You can create as many specifications as you like within a project.
The specification becomes a quote request once you submit it to us. When we’ve confirmed the prices (it’s instant if your specification only includes products from Clippings), you’ll receive a quote from us that’s valid for 60 days.
Learn more about how to use the platform in our step-by-step guides.

You can use the status field to track at what stage you are with your product selection. Every newly added product to a project is “Proposed”. You and every other person that’s has access to this project can change the status — to “Rejected” or “Approved”. You can use this to sign-off product selections from colleagues or other project stakeholders for example. For more info, check out our step-by-step guides.
Our standard delivery for all orders to mainland UK addresses includes a 2-man delivery service with a courier. Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions and safety protocols, items to private properties can only be delivered to the door. For commercial properties, the delivery team can bring the items to the final room and remove packaging, given the building management has put a Covid-19 protocol in place.
For large orders, we will create a bespoke delivery schedule in line with your project deadlines and Covid-19 guidelines, which can include packaging removal and recycling and on-site installation.
You can let us know your preferred delivery date when you check-out. We will do everything we can to honour this, but the final delivery date might change. We will be in touch a few days before delivery to confirm a date with you.
For large orders, our logistics team will liaise with your team to synch timelines or to discuss phased delivery.
Yes, it is usually possible to change the delivery date, but not in all circumstances. It depends on how quickly you get in touch with us after placing your order and how long the lead time is for the products you’ve ordered. To request a new delivery date, please get in touch with our team. There can occur a cancellation fee if a new delivery date is requested just before the order is dispatched from the Clippings warehouse.
Yes, that can be possible, especially if you just placed the order. Please email your request stating the new delivery address to email@example.com or your account manager and they will look into it for you. We can’t change the delivery address once your order has left our warehouse.
If you need to make changes to your order, please contact our team within 24 hours. We might be able to edit the order, but that’s only possible if you get in touch swiftly after placing an order because our team will need to contact the brand(s). Please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or your account manager.
Your shipping total is based on the number of items as well as the weight of the products in your order.
Yes, you can book an installation service through Clippings for an additional fee. You can add this service when placing your order through the platform.

Often we use the installations teams recommended by the respective furniture brand or experienced local companies close to the project site. However, we can’t offer the installation of lighting, architectural lighting and hang items like mirrors or wall shelves at the moment.
We’d always recommend placing a new order on the platform. Open the project for which you want to order more products and request a new quote for the additional products. You can see all your orders for a project under the tab Orders.
We accept payment by all major cards, Paypal and Bank Transfer.
You will be charged in full immediately after your order is confirmed. You will receive a notification email once the confirmation happens.
For projects with a significant order value, we can offer different payment terms. Please get in touch with our team to discuss.
If your product is damaged or faulty, you must contact us within fourteen days of receipt by email to email@example.com or by telephone on +44 20 3808 9449 as per our Terms of sale. We deal with damaged or faulty items on an individual base, but it’s always helpful if you take pictures of the damage immediately after unpacking an item.
Most our projects are based in the UK but we have successfully delivered projects in the EU, USA, Caribbean and Hong Kong. However, at the moment we can only offer international delivery for projects of a certain size. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your account manager to discuss your project.
Clippings works with the following DAP (delivery at place) Incoterms rules:
As our warehouse is in the UK, we usually store all deliveries from different suppliers for a project there.
We’ll prepare all items for the transport to the final destination. This includes packaging the goods and putting them on pallets if necessary.
The delivery costs on your quote from Clippings include insurance of all ordered goods and also cover export duties, taxes and customs fees at the UK border.
We work with different freight forwarders and your Project Manager (supported by our Supply Chain team) will update you regularly on where your products are along the way.
Once the goods arrive in the country of the project site, your customs broker has to manage the import customs declarations and cover all fees.
If you don’t have a dedicated person dealing with imports in your team, our freight forwarder can help you with managing this process.
Once the goods arrive at the site, it is your responsibility to organise and manage the unloading of all items if no other arrangements have been made with Clippings.
If you have any questions, please contact your account manager directly or our team at email@example.com
You can download all invoices for a project under the “Orders” section when you open the project on the platform. Once you’ve placed your order, you can download the invoice immediately.
We cannot accept any returns, refunds or exchanges unless a product is damaged or faulty. Please see our Terms of Sale for more information.
Unfortunately, we can’t offer this service. However, we can arrange a delivery date and time that’s convenient for you.
By default, we will consolidate the order for you in our warehouse. All deliveries from brands are stored in our warehouse and sent to you in one go so it arrives on the agreed delivery date.
The production and delivery times in the catalogue and the order tracker do not reflect the current delays. At the moment, we can’t estimate for how long these delays will occur, but we hope that the situation will improve drastically within a few weeks, so shown lead times will be accurate again. For the latest information or to ask questions related to your project, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch with your account manager.
Unfortunately, yes. Sending and receiving goods involves a lot more admin now and brands and couriers are still updating their processes and protocols. We expect the situation to ease within weeks, but it might take some brands longer than that. You can contact us at email@example.com or your account manager if you have any questions in regards to your project.
If we learn that a product is delayed, our team will contact clients right away. We’re checking in with all our partner brands to ensure Clippings has provided them with all forms and declarations to ensure a smooth import or export in line with the new regulations. We’re also in touch with all our shipping partners to get regular updates on the current situation.
Yes, they can be as many brands are sourcing supplies from the EU which are experiencing the same delays.
