    Bespoke or made to order. 7th Mar 18 at 7:41 AM
    Musing yesterday.

    If an chest of draws is made to a standard design when a customer places an order can the order be cancelled?

    Obviously if the chest was made to a specific size and painted to customer specification then that can't be cancelled.

    Thoughts?

    What do you mean by standard design? Do you have a specific example to give us?

    Not really. Go to a any retailer and pick an item of furniture. Salesperson says that that item is made when an order is placed ie there is no stock.

    Is it correct to assume that a consumer has cancellation rights in the above instance that they wouldn't have if they has specified a specific colour/size egg?

    If you buy in their shop, you have no cancellation rights.

    Well, as above, the point is moot as this wouldn't be a distance sale. However, if you're simply asking whether ordering furniture online that has to be made to order rather than delivered from existing stock, then no this wouldn't normally be classed as bespoke or made to your specification.
