LIGHTING - 3 Years
A warranty of 3 years covers all Douglas and Bec lighting products. Our warranty covers workmanship and finish of materials 3 years from the date of purchase when subject to normal use and care in an appropriate location. No warranty in any case is valid if joint separation or material surface degradation is a result of the product in an environment subject to direct sunlight, moisture or fluctuating temperates. The Natural Brass will develop a patina over time - please select this finish carefully as the appearance of the material will change from when you first receive it. This is a natural process of raw brass.
TIMBER - 5 Years Structural
A 5 year warranty covers the structural integrity of Douglas and Bec products. Any surface abrasions or dents will not be covered if they were not reported immediately upon arrival of your purchase. A selection of images will be requested dependant on the damage reported. The timber products have been crafted by hand with carefully selected timbers suitable for the intended use of the product. It is a natural product and can change with environmental variables. Humidity and fluctuating temperatures that causes bowing or joint separation are not warranted. No warranty will be accepted where sun or heat exposure damage is the visible cause.

Douglas and Bec have hand selected fabric and leather that are suitable for the intended use of each product. All meet exacting standards. Leather is a natural product and imperfections can be present. Please see douglasandbec.co.nz/salestermsandshipping for further details in regards to these materials. Warranty will not be accepted unless the damage is clearly visible through mis-handling before changing hands. Fabric will not be warranted unless upon arrival obvious damage to the surface is visible and reported.
