How do I care for my marble table?
Marble is a natural stone and can stain from spills. Even water needs to be immediately wiped so as to not leave marks or mineral stains. Water, weather and hot sun outside will cause the marble to crack. With routine care and maintenance it can be kept clean and sparkling.
Are all your fibreglass products, especially dining tables, perfectly round?
No. Every fibreglass product is hand made and therefore can not be made in perfectly round shape as machine made products are. Of course, there are only slight variations in the amounts it varies from a perfect cirlce. Be assured you are not going to receive an oval shape if you purchase a round one, however bare in mind that fibreglass products are not made by machine but by hand and can not be made perfectly round.
Are measurements exact and are the colour of products exactly the same as the website pictures?
Colour: Due to the nature of varying computer monitors or mobile device screen qualities, along with the lighting at time of taking the photos, product colours can vary slightly in real life to what you see on your screen. If you would like more pictures from our showroom of a specific product, you are more than welcome to request one which we can provide if the item is in stock.
Natural products like American oak timbers, natural marble or leather will vary. These variations should be appreciated as every natural product must have some variations so pictures might not be accurate on the website.
