This warranty applies under normal, non-commercial use and
terminates in the event of resale. Improper cleaning voids any
warranty. Re-covering the frame voids all warranties because in
re-covering the frame, some or all components may be changed. This
warranty does not cover damage as a result of misuse, abuse, accident,
commercial use, institutional use, or shipping damage. Because of the
craftsmanship involved and the natural materials used in the
manufacturing process, minor variations will occur from piece to piece.
Therefore, this warranty does not cover such minor differences between
your furniture and: floor samples, printed illustrations, and video or
This warranty also does not cover fabric protectors that have not
been applied by the fabric manufacturer, since they may cause latex
deterioration, seam slippage, discoloration and may damage filler
This warranty protects you only when you purchase Bernhardt furniture
from a Bernhardt Authorized Dealer. If you find a problem, all claims
for warranty service must be accompanied by your original proof of
purchase, contain a brief written description of the defect and must be
made through the retailer where the upholstered furniture was purchased.
There are some repairs that can be taken care of in your home and your
authorized dealer will handle those repairs. If the dealer feels that
factory service is needed, Bernhardt will make arrangements to pick up
your furniture from the retailer, make any repairs necessary and return
it to your retailer. Bernhardt is not responsible for transportation
costs from your home to the retailer, nor are we responsible for
transportation costs to and from our factory service center two (2)
years after the date that your furniture is initially shipped to the
Bernhardt Authorized Dealer.
