If an item of furniture has a faulty part, such as a cushion, panel or foot, we are entitled to offer a replacement item in the first instance as these types of defects are in no way detrimental to the purpose or structure of the item.

The items are from a discontinued range and as such are being sold as seconds. These items may have been excessively handled so may have knocks, scratches or other defects due to being over handled. The sale price takes this into consideration.

Most dining tables and beds may need some minor assembly. Items needing minimal home assembly will be clearly identified in the individual item description. Rattan Garden Furniture Ltd. designers have, to the best of their ability, ensured any assembly is as simple as possible and in no way detracts from the quality or structural integrity of the product. We do not unpack any of your items or assemble any of your furniture on delivery unless specifically agreed at point of sale.
