Unless otherwise stated, these terms of sale apply to all orders accepted by DeMuro Das on or after the Effective Date listed above.
ACCEPTANCE OF ORDERS

The invoice, together with the terms and conditions on this page, collectively constitute and will be herein after referred to as the “Terms of Sale” governing the sale of goods identified on the invoice. Unless otherwise provided herein, it is understood and agreed that these Terms of Sale constitute a binding contract between DeMuro Das and the customer and supersedes any prior writing or agreement for the order.
If the order is accepted, DeMuro Das will collect a 50% deposit prior to the start of production. For custom orders, a shop drawing will be also be issued for client approval prior to the start of production.
The remainder balance will be collected prior to the items being shipped from the factory. This balance will include any applicable sales tax and white glove delivery charges.
Production lead times are generally 7 – 10 weeks for standard pieces. Production involving hand cast metal and stone tend to be on the longer end of this time frame. Custom items may also extend production timelines.
Our standard shipping lead times by ocean vary by destination. For North America, ship times are generally 6 - 7 weeks to arrive at our NYC receiver. White glove delivery will generally take an additional 1 – 4 weeks depending on location. For non-US locations, ship times vary depending on the country. Please contact the DeMuro Das showroom in New Delhi for specific quotes.
DeMuro Das can offer shipping via air freight for an additional charge to expedite time frames. Air shipping generally takes 10 – 14 days to arrive at the designated receiver.
DeMuro Das does not guarantee the arrival time of any shipment. The timelines above are provided only as a guideline and should be treated as such. DeMuro Das may, from time to time, change delivery schedules without cost, penalty, or liability to customer. DeMuro Das will endeavor to give customer reasonable notice of any delay in delivery, but it shall not be liable for any costs, expenses, damages or loss customer may claim for any delay of any order under any invoice.
SHIPPING QUOTES & RESPONSIBILITY
As a service to our customers, DeMuro Das will quote and arrange the shipping of orders via one of our preferred carriers. All charges are PROFORMA and will be included on the final balance due notice.
If the customer chooses to manage their own freight and delivery, DeMuro Das must be informed of details such as the desired date of pickup. The fee to pick-up will be added to the balance due.
Title of all goods, along with all risk of loss or damage, passes to the customer upon tender of shipment to the carrier. All claims as to breakage, damage, or shortage must be made and adjusted with the carrier. Regardless of any damage claims, adjustment or final adjudication of claims, our invoices are due in full as presented.
FORMS OF PAYMENT
DeMuro Das accepts checks and ACH or wire transfer as payment.
North American clients ordering items with COM must fill out our COM Form and send it via mail to the NYC showroom at 68 35th Street, Building 4, Unit C552 Brooklyn, NY 11201. Please refer to the form for details re: our COM process.
Please note that while showroom staff will make every effort to ensure that the fabric sent matches the fabric specified by the client, we will not open packaging to examine fabric physically and therefore take no responsibility for errors the fabric company may have made in fulfilling their order for the client.
Non-North American clients should work with the sales staff at our New Delhi location to coordinate deliveries.
All DeMuro Das pieces are made-to-order and therefore cannot be returned.
Sales of floor samples are considered final sale and are also not returnable.
CHANGES AND CANCELLATION
Changes in orders are subject to approval by DeMuro Das and will not be approved once production has begun. Changes once an order has been submitted may affect the price and cause production/shipping delays. Cancellations accepted after production begins shall be subject to a forfeiture of the 50% deposit.
DeMuro Das reserves the right to cancel all or part of the undelivered portion of the invoice without liability if customer fails to make the payment(s) required by these Terms of Sale, or if customer breaches any of these Terms of Sale.
