Product Liability

The designers at Adorno Platform are liable for the design pieces they sell on Adorno Platform and are responsible for all information and photos relating to the pieces, including measurements and descriptions. At Adorno, we do our utmost to ensure all information provided is true and accurate.

Prices & Taxes

If a buyer purchase a piece from a designer located in the same jurisdiction or country value-added tax (VAT) is included in the price of the piece.

If a buyer purchases a piece from a designer located in a different jurisdiction/country, no value-added tax (VAT) will be added to the price, but the buyer will have to pay customs and excise duties as a part of the shipping price.

Shipping costs are paid by the buyer and will be charged in addition to the price of the piece and are displayed in the total bill in the cart and checkout.

In case of an error in the price of an ordered piece, Adorno will inform the buyer as soon as possible and give the option to cancel or confirm the order to the correct price. The price of a piece might vary over time due to special offers and other circumstances. Special promotions may occur for certain design pieces.

Prices and other information on the pieces exhibited can be changed at any time by the designers. It is the information at the time of the purchase that has to be taken into account by the buyer.


Agreements, including oral agreements, must be confirmed in writing in order to be binding.

Purchases of design pieces can be made by any individual or legal entity legally entitled to enter into such agreements, with a valid payment method and valid delivery address. The buyer has first completed a purchase when clicking the “buy” button. 

When a buyer purchase a design piece an email is sent to the buyer confirming the order. The price of the piece, including shipping costs, will be charged from the bank account of the buyer immediately after the buyer has clicked “buy”.

In the case that it is impossible to deliver an ordered design piece, Adorno may have to cancel the purchase.

Adorno accepts credit card payments from all major providers including VISA, Mastercard, AMEX, and JB. Adorno holds the right to change all payment solutions at all times, without further explanation.


The shipping provider of Adorno will deliver the design piece(s) to the address given by the buyer within the time frame given under the shipping information of the piece.

The buyer must ensure that the address of delivery is correct and that it is possible to deliver during business hours.

In the case of extra costs for attempted delivery or similar, the customer must cover the full amount of the extra costs.

The time of delivery may depend on, and be made impossible by, external factors; force Majeure, strikes, postal delays, and other extraordinary circumstances.

Pieces damaged during shipment

It is the buyers’ responsibility to inspect the condition of the design piece upon delivery. If a piece is damaged, the buyer must contact Adorno within three days of receiving the piece by sending an email to [email protected]. The email must include the order number, contact information, date of delivery, information about the damage, name of the design piece, a photo of the damages, and condition of the inner and outer packaging.

During shipment, all pieces are insured. Damages inflicted during shipment will therefore never be at the cost of the buyer. If damage occurred clearly because of a faulty produced piece, or insufficient packaging, the designer will cover the return and repair costs. If damage occurred clearly during the shipment, despite sufficient packaging, the insurance or Adorno will cover any return and repair costs. It is, however, crucial that the buyer contact Adorno within three days after the piece has been received with pictures clearly documenting the damage, and the state of the inner and outer packaging.

If a piece is damaged at delivery the buyer has the right to have it repaired, or receive a new design piece, or cancel the purchase for a full refund of the total cost.


Returns are handled according to the existing law of the jurisdiction of the state or country from which the designer sells his/her design pieces. The return rights can, therefore, be different depending on where the designers are located.

In case a buyer wishes to return a design piece, Adorno must be notified by mail to [email protected] within 3 days of successful delivery, and hand over the design piece to the shipping provider before the right of return expires.

The cost of return shipments is paid by the buyer. A return label will be issued by Adorno, and the price of the product(s) except return shipping costs will be refunded to the buyer within 30 days after the designer has received the design piece.

We do not accept returns on made-to-order items.
