A furniture warranty covers manufacturer defects and is usually limited by time.
Furniture warranties do not cover negligence, mishandling of the products, or general wear and tear.
But, what exactly is a manufacturer's defect and is there anything not covered by the warranty?
An example of a manufacturing defect would be the stitching unravelling on a fabric sofa within the first 12-months. This would typically be covered under the furniture warranty.
On the other hand, a furniture warranty does not cover the pilling of the fabric as this is not deemed a fault in the fabric.
Furniture warranties also come with a specific period, which can be different for the various parts and materials. For example, King Living offers a 25-year steel frame warranty on all indoor sofas, while other components of indoor products have a 15-year warranty according to the pro-rata schedule.
