Warranty | Msofas
As one of the UK's few specialist sofa retailers, the Msofas selection process is strongly oriented toward quality and durability as well as value. Before allowing the supply of a piece of upholstery from any manufacturer, our buying team not only inspect and assess the factory but also check the method of manufacture of every model and design produced. Upholstery and sofas, in particular, are hand made products and as such variation and inconsistencies are common. For this reason, Msofas take great care in supplier choice, working with only factories where quality standards are process driven and maintainable.
This means that when a model is on display in the store, we are supremely confident in its intrinsic quality.
To represent our own confidence in our products and in addition to your statutory rights as a UK consumer we include our own 2 years warranty, free-of-charge with your new furniture.

An easily notable feature is the presence of real leather, even on a small piece of a differentiated structure of the surface, different thicknesses, as well as the presence of other natural characteristics resulting from actions of nature: insect bites, scars, wrinkles, scratches, calluses, and the like. The difference in the texture of the skin is single with evidence that the skin has a natural face and that you are the buyers of the product for which he has been natural materials. Furniture with large areas of utility is made of a dozen or so up mats skin, coming from several animals, so there is a possibility of different shades and gloss leather upholstery. This effect also confirms the naturalness of the skin and should not be treated as a defect. Over time, the use of the skin can be wiped off - which is normal during operation, thus enhances the worn surface (patina shade).
Our company for furniture apply hides, in which, / the patina effect is obtained artificially by appropriate dyeing leather by the manufacturer. They are so called. "Leather antique".
Leather due to its properties in normal use can gently stretch, which is not a pucker skin defects. In some leather furniture are deliberately wrinkling. It is deliberate plan design and can not be regarded as a defect
The top layer of the skin is very delicate and sensitive to external action. Just like human skin is prone to drying out and cracking, so you should avoid placing leather furniture near radiators, fireplace, avoid direct sunlight, as the sun's rays have a very big impact on changing the colour of the furniture. It is recommended constant skin temperature ranging from 19 to 21 degrees Celsius.
Do not use detergents, inappropriate care, specially manufactured on the basis of alcohol, gasoline and solvents and bleaches - they can permanently damage the skin. Defects caused as a result of misuse or improper maintenance-care products are not subject to the complaint.
All used by the company skin meet high-quality standards that are required for the production of furniture. Regular checks and detailed selection of material selection to production guarantee a very high quality of our products.
