All seat cushion cores in both Unattached Cushioning and Attached Cushioning will soften with normal use and will conform to the shape of the user. This shall be considered normal wear, and shall not be considered a loss of resiliency or a material manufacturing defect.
The Leather and Upholstery Fabric Limited Warranty also includes seam slippage, cracking, and dye transfers. Leather is a natural product, and, as such, each hide will reflect its own individuality. Some variations of shade and tone are to be expected as are the nicks, scratches, and wrinkles that only occur in genuine leather; these characteristics are in no way to be considered a defect. These Limited Warranties do not cover tears, flattening of nap, pilling, fading, or shrinking and are not valid when heavily soiled or abuse is evident. These Limited Warranties also do not cover protective finishes, velvets, and velvet types, since by their very nature, these fabrics are of soft texture and will crush, shade and mark more readily than most fabrics; these characteristics are in no way to be considered a defect.
