Tradition Collection Faux Shagreen finish is meant for indoor use only. This material is created by pouring a liquid resin mixture into a mold to recreate the look and feel of real Stingray skin. This process produces an unavoidable variance in both color and texture. The mold used creates panels which are then adhered to each piece of furniture resulting in the characteristic seaming. Because this is done by hand, varying degrees of seam visibility are to be expected. By ordering products from this collection, you accept the natural characteristics unique to each item and agree that no claims will be approved regarding these natural variations. Special care should be taken to protect this finish.
