1. Product Details

 

1.1 We will use every effort to ensure that all descriptions, prices, colours and sizes are correct. Due to differences in settings on your computers, printers and software, the colour reproduction of products may vary. All sizes given are approximate and may vary. Since many products are made from natural materials there may be slight differences between actual products.

1.2 Leather products are made from natural leather and consequently they may not be completely uniform in appearance. Only the finest leather is used but it may show natural marks on the hide. Some leathers will mellow with age and exposure to sunlight and heat.

1.3 We will aim to match the colour and texture of the fabric of your furniture to the samples chosen as accurately as possible, but variations in both the colour and texture may occur. We strongly recommend that customers take advantage of our free sample service before committing to purchase.

1.4 Our products are delivered to meet BS 5852 for flame retardancy in accordance with the 1988 legislation. All composite foam meets Crib 5 and outer materials conform to the cigarette and match tests (sources 0 and 1) meeting the FR requirement for general domestic upholstery.

2.1 It is your responsibility to ensure that the furniture ordered will pass freely through any planned access into your room. We will not accept any liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of incorrect or incomplete measurements or information supplied by you.
