PRODUCT FINISHES AND DIMENSIONS:
One of our main furniture materials is mahogany, which is a sustainable solution for eco-effective design and construction. Each item we manufacture is hand finished and unique. The appearance of the wood and finish will not be identical to samples displayed in our showrooms, on our website or in catalogs or other printed matter. This is due to natural characteristics of the wood and the hand craftsmanship used to create each individual piece.
Due to the nature of handcrafted furniture, manufacturing processes, and the materials used, we cannot guarantee that the finish of the wood, leather, fabric or stone will be exactly as pictured. Since each item is entirely unique, some variations in dimensions and finish of wood, fabric, stone or other materials are to be expected.
It is also likely that our products will appear different in lighting that is unlike that which is used in our showroom or photo studio. Imperfections or variations in the grain, color, or sheen of the wood may occur naturally. Stone finishes such as marble and granite may differ in color and veining. As a result, these naturally occurring characteristics are not viewed as flaws, damages or defects.
Naturally-occurring characteristics of our wood products, including: wood grain, knots, texture, open knots and grain, color variation, panel shifting, random patterns, bleeding and dark end grain will vary. Similarly, stone finishes such as marble and granite tend to differ in color and veining. We regard such characteristics as essential in exhibiting the individual charm and beauty of these natural materials and not as flaws or defects. All of these are part of the natural beauty that is real wood
We expect our products to be stored and displayed in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
Our wood products may experience some splitting, cracking, chipping and glazing, as it is responsive to its ever-changing environment. Since the environment in which the product is placed is beyond our control such conditions are not cause for price allowances or returns.
We are not responsible for variations in wood color, stain color, sap, and wood grain. Wood is a natural product created by nature and as such does not allow for a uniform product. We do our best to assure that the product you receive meets your expectations. However, due to the uniqueness of our products: color, finish and dye lot may vary on each item. In addition, continual exposure to light and temperature changes can and will affect wear. Also note that when ordering matching furniture pieces, it is best to order at the same time to ensure the same color/finish.
Our distressed furniture finishes include indentations, worm holes, pin holes, and sand-through highlights. These distressed features are placed at common wear points, giving your custom furniture a realistic "heirloom" look.
Rattan - Wicker
Rattan is a weaving process, not a material. One of the materials used in the weaving process is called rattan core, which comes from the rattan interior. A machine cuts the inside of the rattan pole into pieces small enough in diameter for weaving. Due to the nature of this product, splits and discolorations are to be expected. They even enhance the beauty and uniqueness of these handcrafted products.
We professionally package or blanket wrap all of our merchandise. During the packaging process, a variety of packaging materials may be used. A custom box made from 275 pound test, double wall cardboard sheeting covers the furniture piece. After boxing, large furniture pieces are strapped to pallets for easy transferring by the carrier.
