9to5 Seating products are manufactured with meticulous attention to detail to achieve a level of quality that is free from defects in material and workmanship. In an effort to stand behind this philosophy, 9to5 Seating warrants to the original purchaser of the product and from the original date of sale, the following:

Upholstery fabric, mesh and foam are warranted against wear through and deterioration during normal usage for a period of five (5) years. However, the company does not warrant leather against routine scratching and scuffing, as all leather is subject to minor blemishes during use. COM and COL are not warranted. Due to natural variations in material, furniture containing leather is sold subject to normal variations and/or irregularities of color, texture, and grain.

ANSI/BIFMA

The Business and Institutional Furniture Manufacturer’s Association (BIFMA) has developed tests that have been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for determining the strength and durability of seating in its everyday use. This statement does not serve as a warranty or guarantee, however, 9to5 Seating products found within this price list generally meet or exceed applicable BIFMA and ANSI standards.

Since textiles vary in weave, thickness and memory, some creasing and/or gathering may occur during the upholstery application process. Due to natural variations over which we have no control, all chairs are sold subject to minor irregularities of color, surface, grain, and texture. Textiles are sold subject to minor variations of color. Because leather is a natural product, variations of texture are common and should be expected. Leather will contain natural
markings such as neck wrinkles, scratches, backbone marks and stretch marks. These distinctions give leather its unique characteristics and are considered to be part of the natural beauty of leather.
