Product information:

Pine & Oak Furniture Ltd and our suppliers have a commitment to continuous product development and improvement and we reserve the right to alter the specification of any item – these alterations include but are not exclusive to adjustments in size, style, finish or detailing on individual items or collections. To confirm exact sizes and/or alterations please call ahead of ordering on 01189 712666.

Any photograph or drawing is produced as a representation of the finished product – although we try to show as true a representative of the colours and finishes of the products shown on the website, we cannot guarantee the exact accuracy of the finish and colours shown in the photographs. Your monitor, tablet, phone or printer can affect the colours and finishes – for exact colours and finishes please visit your nearest Pine & Oak Furniture store. Some products may vary from those shown on the website or on display in our shops as a consequence. Occasionally we may supply a small amount of goods with slight differences in specification due to circumstances beyond our control. Should this happen we will inform you of this prior to delivery and the products we supply will be of equivalent value, appearance and functionality.

As the furniture is made from high quality, natural wood, the products will have their own characteristics and appearance including the grain and knots. With the manufacturing of oak products it is very common and part of the process to use wood filler. Light will, over a period of time, slightly alter the colour of the furniture – however this is just part of the ageing process.

The majority of our products are sold fully assembled – however on occasions larger items may require some assembly, to enable ease of delivery into rooms, to negotiate entry to your property/rooms, to aid delivery or to protect the item when in carriage. Items which do require assembly will be assembled by our delivery team unless you have stated otherwise.

Measurements:

All dimensions specified by us are approximate and within a tolerance range – we reserve the right to alter/change measurements and/or specification without prior notice.

We will not accept any liability for any extra costs incurred by you as a result of incorrect or incomplete measurements or information supplied by you, or slight alterations made by the supplier.

Nature of Wood

a) As wood is a natural product the customer is responsible for looking after and preventing the furniture from drying out by treating it with suitable products.

b) Wood is a naturally grown material, therefore, the items of furniture ordered may vary in colour/grain/knots etc..

c) Reclaimed oak is one of the most volatile of all hardwoods used in the manufacture of furniture; that is, it changes with variation of temperature and humidity. For that reason, the purchaser may see seasonal wood “checking”. Wood checking is the opening and closing of the wood grain with changes of temperature and humidity. There may also be expansion or contraction of the planks of timber used in manufacture. Both wood checking and expansion or contraction of the wood planks maybe heightened by home climate control; for instance central heating in winter and air conditioning in summer.

Reclaimed oak has been something before so that when the oak is disassembled, there may be holes and gaps and other voids. These are filled with other pieces of reclaimed oak to create a sensational authentic and unique product. These occurrences are not defects but verification of the authenticity of the materials. The product you own is not returnable because of these or other concerns. Nature is not perfect and our furniture reflects that in all its aspects.
