This Knoll Shop Selling Policy only applies to online sales of Knoll Product Lines (“Products”) made by Knoll, Inc. (“Knoll”, "Seller", “We”, “Us” or “Our”) through the Knoll Shop website, 800# and Home Design Shop, and replaces any other documents or discussions Knoll previously had with You, the purchaser ("Purchaser", “You” or “Your”). All prices, terms, discounts and product offerings are subject to change without notice.
Terms & Conditions Of Sale
Sales by Knoll of Knoll Products through the Knoll Shop within the United States are made only on the terms which are contained in this Selling Policy. Knoll objects to any different or additional terms and conditions that You may propose. This sale is expressly conditional upon Your agreement to these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions may be changed only by a written document signed by both parties. The parties intend that these terms and conditions, together with the order confirmation and final invoice sent to You via electronic mail, constitute the final, complete, and exclusive agreement between Knoll and You.
Your order is not binding on the Knoll Shop until You have received Your order confirmation from Knoll, which will be transmitted to You through electronic mail. You should print and review Your order confirmation and retain a copy for Your records. Knoll reserves the right, without notice to You, to limit Your order quantity and/or refuse service to any customer. Knoll reserves the right to cancel any order and to correct any errors, inaccuracies or omissions.
The prices charged by Knoll shall be those prices in effect on the date of Our receipt of a complete order from You. These merchandise prices do not include the cost of shipping the Products to Your designated “Ship To” address or any taxes on shipping, when applicable. You will be charged prior to the time Your order is shipped.
Sales tax will be charged according to the ultimate “Ship To” destination of Your order. All sales, use, excise and other taxes applicable to the sale of the Products are Your sole responsibility and will be charged at the time the Products are shipped. Knoll will provide You with an estimate of these taxes at the time You submit Your order; however, this estimate may be revised by Knoll prior to shipment of Your order if tax rates change.
Terms Of Payment
You are required to provide a valid credit card number to Knoll when Your order is submitted. By submitting Your order, You authorize Knoll to charge Your credit card for the entire purchase price, plus shipping costs and taxes and any applicable restocking charges or return delivery/freight charges. Knoll reserves the right to accept or reject the credit card number You provide when You enter Your order. By submitting an order and a credit card number, You represent to Knoll that You are the card holder, that the card is valid and that You are authorized to make the charges. Credit cards issued by banks located outside the United States of America will not be accepted.
Changes and Cancellations
Any change or cancellation to an order containing Quickship, Custom or Vintage products is required by the end of the next business day, following our receipt of Your order. Any change or cancellation to an order containing standard leadtime products (ie not Quickship) is required within five (5) business days following our receipt of Your order. Any changes or cancellations must be requested by speaking directly with a Customer Service representative at 800-343-5665. No changes or cancellations may be requested by email.
KnollTextiles, Spinneybeck or Filzfelt Orders may not be cancelled by customer without the written consent of Knoll. Substantial cancellation/re-stocking charges are applicable. Certain products are sold on a non-cancelable basis.
Shipping And Delivery
An estimated ship date will be provided to You by Knoll in Your order acknowledgement. Transit time is dependent on shipment method and location of delivery. Knoll will notify You via electronic mail when Your shipment leaves our facility.
Products with the quickship symbol will be delivered to You in approximately two (2) to three (3) weeks after the order is placed, location dependent. If an order contains both standard and quickship items, the order will ship complete and default to the longest lead time. All quickship products are subject to availability at the time of order submission. No deliveries will be made to PO boxes.

Damage In Transit

Knoll will repair or replace the Product damaged in shipment only if You have notified Knoll of the damage within five (5) days of receiving the Product. If submitting a claim for damage in transit for a UPS delivery, You must retain all Product and packaging for inspection. After Customer Service has verified Your damage in transit claim, We may send You new packaging and labels so that You can return the Product to Knoll at no charge to You. Once the Product is received and verified by Knoll, we will either repair or replace the Product and send it back to You at no additional charge.

Any orders received via UPS must be returned in their original packing cartons. If such packaging has been discarded it is Your responsibility to get sufficient packaging from UPS for the return. All returned Products must be in original condition. After the product has been received and inspected, Knoll will credit the credit card You used to pay for Your order, less outbound and return shipping charges and any applicable restocking fees.
