- Wooden furniture
In wood shades such as rustic oak and walnut forest (see photo), the presence of knots, slits and / or different shades (alternating dark and light on the surfaces) is a feature of these materials and is not considered as fault.
- Solid wood - Semisolid wood furniture
In furniture made of solid wood (see photo) there is a possibility that the "water"/shades of the wood differs from each other or there are is a present of more than two colors.
Knots, holes and possible cracks that may occur on the wood are perfectly normal, as we are talking about a completely natural product and they do not constiture failure in construction or a faulty material.
Over time, small differences in size, new cracks or a differentiation in existing craks may occur, as solid wood is a living organism that encapsulates moisture which it gradually eliminates. These are directly correlated with the environmental conditions (room temperature, humidity, sun exposure).
Furniture made of aged wood (see photo) due to their construction from different batches of wood, of various origins, are unique products. Any color differences, "water"/shade irregularities, knots, tears, holes and resin residues are a key feature of the furniture and are not considered a fault.
- Marble surfaces
Marble is a natural rock with shades unique to each surface and variety per piece. Any photographic material is considered indicative, as it is influenced by factors such as the lighting of the space and the means of receiving the material.
The crystal surfaces should be inspected upon receipt. Upon receipt, the company can not assume further responsibility, as we refer to a material that needs great care and is not accompanied by a guarantee.
- Differences between store exhibits and finished products
Milanode Showrooms present furniture collections in special professional lighting conditions and many of the exhibits are exposed for long periods of time in bright natural sunlight. The above conditions affect and often slightly alter the shades of the construction materials of the exhibition furniture. Therefore, both wood furniture in natural wood shades and fabric furniture may have a difference in shade between the shop exhibits and the product of the same material that the customer will finally receive
The feeling of softness of the seat of a sofa may differ from that of the exhibit in case a different fabric from the exhibition furniture has been chosen, as the fabrics vary in elasticity and composition.
