Please inspect your delivery promptly and carefully. Replacement orders typically will ship in the same length of time as the original order. All damage or other problems must be noted in writing on the bill of lading before signing.  It is the customer's responsibility to thoroughly inspect all furniture at the time of delivery and make appropriate notations on the delivery paperwork. It is also the customer's responsibility to notify BLACKLION within 48 hours of the delivery of any damage.  Refunds/returns relating to damage will only be issued/accepted as a result of our inability to repair/order/reorder an item. Issues arising after 48 hours are considered warranty issues.

Warranty
Product warranties are provided by the manufacturer and are generally limited to defects in materials and craftsmanship.  The manufacturer's warranty begins when the merchandise is delivered. BLACKLION provides no warranties either expressed or implied, including but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.  All such warranties are expressly and specifically disclaimed.  BLACKLION shall not be responsible for any indirect, special or consequential damages.  Customers that reside in "remote" or other areas not accessible by an authorized restoration center will be responsible for any trip and travel charges incurred in the warranty claim process

Disclaimer
Please note that BLACKLION cannot guarantee that any particular finish on any product will match exactly to the same finish which may have been seen locally. Wrought Iron Products: Finishes may vary due to differences in dye lots, climate, and the uniqueness of the artisans hand applied application. Leather Products: Natural marking such as scars, brands, wrinkles, grain variations, etc., will be considered normal characteristics and not construed as defects. Since no two cows are identical, no two cow hides will be exactly the same. Natural markings and color variations can and will occur. As all dye lots are different, an exact color match cannot be guaranteed to any sample you may have seen. Sample swatches are to be used as a starting reference point only.  Because of the natural characteristics of leather as well as variation in the tanning process, the final leather goods may vary in color, texture, natural markings and sheen (level of gloss).  This variation does not constitute a reason for return.  Wooden Products: Due to the natural characteristics of wood, there may be variations in color, grain, sheen, and sizes. Sizes: Any and all sizes are those listed by the manufacturer.  Actual sizes may vary slightly within industry standards and are understood and accepted.

All delivery times are estimates based on the manufacturer's and delivering agent's current lead times.
