Do I get a guarantee with my furniture?
Yes, all of our products come with a 5 year warranty, covering the structure of the frame from any manufacturing or material defects. We also offer a 5 year warranty on indoor cushion covers and foams. Our 2 year warranty protects against the fading, cracking and peeling of our outdoor synthetic weave.
What is synthetic rattan?
Synthetic Rattan is what our garden furniture is made from. Its contemporary design reflects our innovative vision to create products that are ahead of the trends. The weave is made using synthetic rattan to ensure that the furniture is all weather proof, as natural rattan would rot outdoors. This gives customers the luxury of having the best of both worlds.
Do the Rio chairs come with cushions?
No, this is a budget set and we do not supply a base or back cushion for this range.
Is the rattan furniture waterproof?
Yes, the furniture frame can be left outdoors uncovered. Please note, the cushion covers are only shower proof and need to be taken indoors over winter, or during heavy rainfall. The outdoor cover (if supplied with the range you have ordered) is to protect the frame only.
Does the Marbella set come with cushions?
Yes, they have a base and back cushion for both chairs and the sofa. This item flat packed on delivery and will require assembly.
Do I get an outdoor cover for the dining sets?

General Furniture Questions
How do I measure properly?
Our conservatory furniture corner sofas are made to fit, and are normally built on site at the delivery address. Before ordering, we would suggest that you measure the room which the furniture is for, so you are aware of the dimensions you have to work with. When measuring for a corner sofa, we would advise you measure from the corner to the end point on each side - our skilfully trained staff can assist you in finding the right size for you. For more information, see our measuring guide.
Can you tell the availability of a particular item?
Our website is updated every day to reflect our current stock situation, alternatively you can contact to our customer service team, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be able to confirm the availability of all items.
I have ordered furniture; can I order spare or extra items?
We have a wide range of products available for our conservatory and garden furniture. If you have made an order, and wish to order spare items or extra items, we would advise contacting our customer service team at email@example.com who are always happy to help and can advise if this would be available.
Can I choose to purchase additional cover sets?
Yes, for our indoor furniture only. Our conservatory furniture range offers you the opportunity to order additional cushion covers, we can supply a additional sets from our existing colour range. A list of our prices can be found on our website, alternatively you can contact our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Will the weave match?
Every reasonable care has been taken to ensure that the descriptions and colour matching are accurate. Not all our ranges are supplied by the same supplier, which may result in some colour match issues; please ask before purchase of multiple ranges. This will also affect the cushion covers on different ranges, where possible, we will advise of any issues, but this will be down to personal preference.
My cushions have arrived creased, what can I do?
Unfortunately, this is due to the way in which they are mail order packaged and sent direct from our factories, the creases will naturally drop out over time however, you can speed this process up by ironing the covers with a low temperature setting.
There are cushions missing from my set?
Some cushions we pack underneath the furniture, please fully check completely, including under your furniture, before contacting us to advise there are missing cushions.
Some of the fixtures and fitting are missing from my furniture?
We try to ensure all fixtures and fitting are securely taped inside boxes, before they leave our warehouse. They can at times become loose inside the boxes, whilst in transit. If you suspect you are missing fixtures and fittings, please fully check the box and furniture before contacting us.
There is mould and mildew on my cushions as I left them outside, do you have anything to remove this?
We advise washing the cushions with normal detergent at 30 degrees, however we cannot guarantee this will remove the mould and mildew. Please try to keep your cushions indoors whilst not in use.
