Lexington Home Brands - Express Limited Warranty
March 1, 2013
This Express Limited Warranty applies to Lexington Home Brands (“Lexington”) case goods and upholstered furniture products that have been purchased from a factory-authorized dealer. This includes products manufactured or marketed under the Lexington brand as well as all licensed brands manufactured or marketed by Lexington.

No Implied Warranties
THIS WARRANTY IS THE ONLY WARRANTY PROVIDED BY LEXINGTON. THE WARRANTY AND REMEDIES SET FORTH HEREIN ARE EXCLUSIVE, AND ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REMEDIES AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER ORAL, WRITTEN, STATUATORY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. NO EMPLOYEE, REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT, DEALER OR ANY OTHER PERSON HAS THE AUTHORITY TO ASSUME OR INCUR ON BEHALF OF LEXINGTON ANY OBLIGATION OR LIABILITY IN PLACE OF, OR ADDITION TO, THIS WARRANTY, OR TO MODIFY IT IN ANY WAY. LEXINGTON EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND THAT THE GOODS ARE FIT FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. LEXINGTON ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. IF LEXINGTON CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, THEN TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL SUCH WARRANTIES SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE EXPRESS WARRANTY. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY MAY LAST, SO THESE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS WHICH MAY VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.
1. This warranty is voided if the product is modified or altered in any way after shipment from Lexington.
2. This warranty is voided if anything, including but not limited to a treatment of any nature, is applied to the
product after the original factory packing has been opened.
3. Lexington reserves the right to modify the product from its form shown on showroom floors or in catalogs. Such
modifications are not considered defects under this warranty.

5. This warranty applies under conditions of normal residential usage. It does not apply to defects or damage
resulting from negligence, abuse or misuse – including but not limited to inadequate or improper maintenance,
exposure to water, salt air, chemicals, accidents, any use for which the product was not designed, or
commercial use (including rental, business, commercial, institutional or any non-residential use), nor does it
cover ordinary wear-and-tear.
6. Because of the natural materials used in the manufacturing process, and the fact that the product is generally
handmade, minor variations will occur from piece to piece. These are not considered defects under this

and are not considered defects under this warranty.

considered a defect under this warranty.

damage is not considered a defect under this warranty.
12. Woven materials, including but not limited to wicker, sea grass, and other similar materials are comprised of
individual strands that can move, causing unfinished areas to show under the strands or the finish to slightly
peel where it bridges between strands. These characteristics are not considered defects under this warranty.
13. Catalogs, video and promotional materials may feature images showcasing items of Lexington indoor products
in an outdoor setting. This is for creative purposes only, and not an indication that the product is suitable for
outdoor use. Damage due to exposure to outdoor elements is not considered a defect under this warranty.
Tommy Bahama Outdoor Living products will be specifically identified as being designed for outdoor use and
their express limited warranty is a separate document.
14. Neither this nor any other warranty, express or implied, is offered by Lexington for any electrical devices,
including but not limited to lighting fixtures, surge protectors, or computer, electronic or multi-media
