Londholm is a UK based company and operates under UK copyright law. In 2015 the UK government decided on a 5 year transitional period before extending copyright protection from 25 years after creation, to 70 years after the death of the designer - which means that legislation will alter in April 2020.
Currently we are able to reproduce designs and sell replica furniture 25 years after its initial creation, which is exactly what we do. As a result, we comply fully with English law, making it legal to buy reproduction furniture from londholm.com.
For more information, you can consult the Transitional provisions for the repeal of section 52 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.
If you live in an EU or EEA country it is still legal to buy and import londholm reproduction products from our warehouse in the UK, even if the copyright law in your country differs from UK law. This is because you are not infringing any exclusive rights under local copyright regulation in other EU/EEA countries when you are buying reproduction furniture.
We at Londholm also produce and source original designs made by our own team of designers hand-picked from all parts of the world. Our designs are made to fit the classic Scandinavian design norm and we strive to achieve the absolute highest quality products by only dealing with the best materials available. At the same time we want to make our products accessible to as many as possible and this can be achieved by not taking outrageous brand-markups on our prices. We do not believe in tricking customers with fake promotions and hence we do not post "original prices" or "before" prices in our product catalogue.
We at Londholm want to help young designers who has the same mindset as us when coming to design. We will help with production, distribution and marketing of designs we love and think our clients will love. If you are a young aspiring designer, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
