QUESTION: Is there anything else I should know?
ANSWER: DISCLAIMER: Rug & Home nor the manufacturer of the product cannot and does not guarantee that any particular finish/color on any item will match exactly to the same finish/color on an item previously purchased or on any item which may have been seen locally.
Wood Products: Due to the natural characteristics of wood, variations in color, texture, grain, sheen (level of gloss) and sizes may occur. These variations do not constitute a reason for return or compensation.
Leather Products: Leather is a natural product and markings such as scars, brands, wrinkles, grain variations, textures and sheen (level of gloss) can and will occur. As with any dyed material, dye lots will be different and an exact color match cannot be guaranteed to any sample or product you may have seen. Sample swatches should be construed to show the approximate color, grain, level of gloss and/or texture of a leather. These variations in leather do not constitute a reason for return or compensation.
Wrought Iron and Metal Products: Finishes may vary in appearance due to paint dye lots, climate and the uniqueness of a hand applied application. Many metal items are individually hand crafted and slight variations may occur. These variations do not constitute a reason for return or compensation.
Rug Size Variations: Size variations in machine made rugs usually do not exceed two inches, but handmade rugs may vary in size up to six inches. All sizes listed on our website are approximate.
