What is the warranty on your products. We purchased a lounge suite in 2016, Afd-Royal. We just love it and it is so comfortable. Only recently we discovered the leather is splitting and the leather has worn thread bare in some places. Would someone advise me please what we can do. Thanks Kaye McGrath.

You will likely be in for a lot of nonsense.

The leather has cracked because it is poor quality, not durable, cheaply made.

We had the same problem with plush. They are under the same umbrella company I believe.

Focus on will send out a technician to your house who will blame the damage on your lack of maintenance, 'body oils' 'medications' suncream etc, anything to refuse your claim.

You will have to use you statutory warranty through Australian consumer law and the ACCC/ fair trading to get anywhere. Don't accept a repair as it will fail again. Do some research on the above and prepare yourself for a well articulated fight. Don't let the company fob you off. The case is closed when you are happy, not them.

Check out other such comments on here, the plush site, nick scali product review etc.

It will take you a while

Hi,
The paperwork states the following regarding your warranty question.
Timber: 1 year structural
Lounge: 5 years structural on frames, 3 years on seating and mechanisms (120kg weight load) and 1 year on stitching and covering.

There is no time limit on your legally protected consumer guarantees. Don't believe anything else.

On a sofa they seem to give a routine $100 off. I would offer them 80% of the value. When they offer you 10% then make a counter offer of 15% or get them to throw in cushions.

I'm looking to purchase two beds for my apartment. Just wondering how long do they usually take to make the delivery? My apartment is located in cbd melbourne.

It varies as there some items will be in stock and others you will have to wait for. Best bet is to pick a few beds you like the look of then call a store to get the time frames for delivery, or you could always visit your closet store and do the same thing.
They may even be able to tell you which ones are in stock and ready to go straight away.

Hi. Can anyone who has a couch from Focus On please tell me if the fabric tends to pill after a while? I used to have a lounge suite from another store but after 6 months it was covered in little balls all over. Looked terrible. I'm thinking of getting a fabric lounge from Focus On. Thanks in advance for your help

Ok guys how do focus on furniture leather couches hold up?

Marcus
Marcus

I bought mine in Jan and its holding up pretty well so far, I did get a leather cleaning spray bottle thing for about $50, and i just use that to clean it every so often. I do know there are different qualities/ thicknesses of the leather.
If you want one more resistant to damage go a thicker leather lounge

Kylie

bought my leather lounge over 5 years ago from focus, I use a leather conditioner every few months and only use a damp cloth for any spills. leather has no marks or cracks or wear. I have 3 young grandchildren that climb over the lounge and are continually spilling food and drinks on it and it is still in great condition.

I purchase a fabric couch July 2016. Got issue with fabric back and sitting area . Asked a technician to check it. He permanently fixed it and recommend me to go for exchange. I sent messages to the email he sent me to ask advice. Anita and Karrie rudely send me email to persue the matter in other. Channels .
The couch is less than 4 month old and supposed to be heavy duty fabric.I m really sad and feel my right as a customer is ignored!!!
Any advice is greatly appreciated?

What store was this at? Remember the dare gallery stores were taken over. Saying that your warranty still would of been granted. Really your first point of call would of been to contact focus rather than seek advice elsewhere, remember any kind of modification I.e repair or use of materials that are similar but not exact, could have a negative impact on your warranty. I can belive a disgruntled customer service assistant but 2 with out reason? Sometimes when we read emails or texts even letters they can come across blunt/ rude it's hard to gage a conversation through a email.
Next time infor, the retailer first there's a chain to follow which would work in your favour should your dealings with them be as accurate as you said.

I just had a rude conversation with Kerri too at customer service were she told me to grow up and get a brain. There is so much negetuvr comments and all have a similar story of either being given incorrect info to get the sale or screwed when dealing with a complaint

Williarrmo
Williarrmo

my advice would be to walk away, never shop here and again and tell anyone that will listen not to shop here! i too have had an awful experience and this is the only power you have left when dealing with a company like focus that clearly does not care.

Lounge suite just delivered, looks great but I have to put the supports/feet. The issue is that there's no holes apart from the support one in the middle of the 3 seater and a single hole at each corner which doesn't match up. No instructions either. It's a statesman. Surely I don't have to drill holes in it. Any suggestions?

You can drill or using a screwdriver, they would line up in each corner as the pictureon the net or when you saw it store would show. You would have to be pretty special not to be able to put them on, but if you ordered delivery the drivers should of done it for you.
