Q5. I don't want the material shown on the sofa. Do you have other options?

Q6. Can the recliner sofa last?  

Style Advisor Isaac (Space@Tampines):

We work with quality manufacturers that are ISO-Certified and adopt best practices at every production stage to ensure that they meet International Standards. You can be assured the quality of our recliner sofas.  Also, we provide a warranty of one year for the mechanisms and motors. If the replacement of spare parts is required many years down the road, our after-sales service is able to do so. 



Q7. I do not have a power plug near where I want to put my recliner sofa. 

Style Advisor Kwok Wai (8@TradeHub):

If you do not have a power plug to keep your sofa constantly plugged in, we have battery-operated recliner sofas that need to be charged from time to time. Otherwise, we have manual options for some of the sofa models as well. 


Q8. Do you have warranty for the sofas and for how long?

Style Advisor Terry (Space@Tampines):

We provide warranty of 10 years for the wooden frame, springs and webbings of the sofa. For the other elements like upholstery, stitching, mechanism and foam, the warranty is 1 year.

Q9. Will the seats/back start to sink after some time? 

Style Advisor Joe (Great World):

Sofa seat and back cushions will always get softer over time, and depending on how you use it. While the construction of different model varies, we use a combination of high density foam of various firmness to provide soft comfort but a firm support that can better withstand the pressure of your body weight. Foam resilience test, coil spring weight resistance test, sofa fatigue tests and no sag spring lifetime test are conducted in the factory to ensure that our expectations in sofa quality are met. The no-sag spring suspension also eliminate sagging and increase firmness of the sofa. A tip is to alternate the area you sit on, to spread out the compression over a long period of time. 



Q10. How should I take care of my leather sofa? 

Style Advisor Kong (Marina Square):

You can vacuum your leather sofa using a soft brush for dust removal for day to day cleaning. We recommend using a leather cleaner for spot cleaning to remove dirt or stains. However, this is not recommended as a regular cleaning routine as overusing it may cause damage to the coating of the leather.

Also, we recommend applying conditioner once in every 6 months helps to provide a protective layer and keeps the leather supple.
