Warranty

There are no express or implied warranties, conditions and obligations of the manufacturer, whether statutory or otherwise that extend beyond the description on the face hereof. Our furniture is made to the highest standard and is warranted free from defects of material and workmanship for five years of single shift usage from the date of delivery. During the warranty period we will repair or replace such merchandise as shall prove to be defective, during normal usage in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications. The manufacturer shall not be liable for defect wholly attributable to normal manufacturing process. Replacement or repair of the Product shall be the sole remedy of the Customer, and the manufacturer shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, or consequential loss or damage suffered by the Customer by reason of any defect in workmanship or manufacture of the Product or inability to use the Product. Moreover, this warranty does not cover accidental damage, abuse, alteration, ordinary wear and tear of Goods, negligence and misuse nor variations over which we have no control such as heat or humidity or damage to which the Goods are connected that is not attributable to the failure of the goods themselves. This warranty is null and void when the product is installed with hardware other than that supplied and/or when installed differently than recommended in the installation guide. Modification to the product or hardware may result in failure of the product and cause damage and/or injury.


Wood Finishes

Nienkämper offers a wide variety of standard light finishes on cherry, mahogany and figured anagre wood veneers, and a clear natural finish on figured anagre, figured sycamore, maple, bird's eye maple and curly maple.


Light finishes do not mask the grain and other characteristics of each wood species. It is important to understand that pieces of the same type of wood will not look identical when a light finish is used. The appearance of the finish will also depend on the natural color of the veneer. Cherry darkens over time as the wood ages. Pin knots and gum pockets are inherent traits.


Wood is a naturally variable raw material; its variances are not within the furniture manufacturer's control and are therefore not considered defects under this warranty.
