Do Chaplins only sell genuine authorised products?
The designs we sell are always the genuine authorised version of any particular design. Genuine and authorised means that items are being manufactured by the company who owns the copyright licence or who has express permission from the copyright licence holder. Purchasing only the genuine authorised version of any design ensures that the item is made to exacting and precise specifications, ensures the quality is excellent, and ensures that the designer's estate receives royalties for their design. This last point is important as rewarding designers for their work (as with artists) encourages others to be creative and produce new items. Terms such as original and reproduction mean different things to different people. To us, original means an item which has been in continuous production since its original launch onto the market.
Do Chaplins offer trade discounts?
Chaplins do have a contract department that focuses on selling into large projects usually involving architects and interior designers. We are able to tailor pricing to fit the size of the project.
