On these pages we have tried to collect all the important questions and answers which may help you in choosing the furniture appropriate for your needs.
In case we could not satisfy your curiosity, please get in contact with us with the help of our online form, or call us directly: Pintér, Judit, Ms, Phone: +36 93 500 114!
1. Can I get a price list?
Basically, Kanizsa Trend Ltd is a manufacturing company, shipping to retailers only and not to end users, thus we can not send you a price list. For such information, please visit our nearest retail partner!
2. Do you serve end users? Can I order directly from the manufacturer?
As Kanizsa Trend does not ship to end users, there is no way you could purchase from us directly.
3. Is there a way to fulfil custom orders (custom manufacturing options), even if at an extra charge?
Alas, our large volume manufacturing technology does not allow us to satisfy custom needs, yet our company has such a wide selection of products and user feedback data from customer questionnaires that each and every dear customer of ours can find their ideal set of furniture from our selection.
4. In which sets can certain models be ordered?
The type selection of our models can be seen on our product pages.
5. Do I have to register myself as a customer and how? What does customer code mean?
You do not have to. The customer code is needed for administering our retail partners within our system.
6. What (leather) covers can certain models be ordered with?
Our product line changes continuously, according to market demands. As the selection of our cover materials is very wide in quality as well as in colour, please, ask for the help of our retail partners to make your choice.
7. Can I buy online?
Alas not. The seat sets have several “such” subjective qualities that we cannot make available through means of a computer (ergonomics, comfort, the feel and touch of different quality cover materials). To make such a substantial choice as the purchase of a seat set, please always visit one of our retail partners.
8. Why is there a difference in the prices of leather furniture?
The price of the end product is substantially influenced by the type of leather used. The better the finish of the leather, the higher the price will be. Other price influencing qualities are the size and thickness of the leather.
9. Can solar radiation and the closeness of a heater damage my furniture set?
Sunshine penetrating into a living environment can damage the leathers: it can bleach, decolour or dehydrate leathers. Every type of leather gets bleached to a minimum extent during the course of time. LongLife leathers stand the test of time better than standard leathers due to their preparation. Basically, no leather should be exposed to permanent solar radiation, as due to sunshine every natural material loses a certain amount of its colour intensity. E.g. the unprotected natural uncovered leather gets bleached visibly after about 220 hours of ultra violet radiation. It is advisable to groom furniture placed near heaters on a more regular basis, as the cover may dry out and crack.
10. Why is the leather stretched after one-two years of use?
The stretching of the leather is no cause to protest, it is a natural quality of leathers. As we have already mentioned in the introduction, leather is a natural material wearing different traces of its natural origin. These signs are more or less visible and can be observed. The different injuries of the animal, the scratch marks, and the bite spots of different insects (mosquito, horsefly) right through fight injuries can show up on processed leather, too. Naturally, such flaws do not constitute a cause to protest.
11. What is the lifespan of the leather?
The leather is conserved during tanning, and it will withstand every deterioration and decomposition under normal circumstances. Of course, the lifespan of the leather depends on the frequency of use, too. Bacteria can not attack the leather, nor can moths damage it. A durable surface protection process makes the leather more lasting and valuable. Penetrating pollution and especially aggressive substances attack and frail the fabrics, which may deter durability.
12. Why is leather cold?
This is an old, yet still enduring prejudice. It comes from the time when tanning process had not reached its present level of quality. In the first moment, leather may still feel colder than a fabric cover, as the air inside the more loose fabric weaving gets warmer instantly when touched. Leather picks up the body heat fast when used. In the case of leather, insulating and temperature compensating air is inside, between the fibres and cells, thus it takes more time to become warm, yet in fact this is a very short time. In fact, from the moment of the first touch the leather “switches”, that is it picks up body temperature, balancing vapour content and temperature. The prejudice about cold leather comes from the times when strongly covered, almost closed surface leathers were in use. Of course, even the cheapest, strongly covered processed leather is better in transpirancy and ventilation and has better temperature balancing properties than artificial leather. Artificial leather never adapts.
13. Why does it show on certain fabrics when I pull my hand over them?
This phenomenon is due to the different refraction indexes of textile fibres. If you pull your hand over a fabric covered model, optically brighter and darker spots will appear on the fabric. This is due purely to the properties of the fabric, the fibre locality and comes with use, constituting no cause to protest.
14. Why is the leather cover optically not homogeneous?
Scar tissue and natural skiver imaged irregularities are natural signs which prove originality. Cattle may be injured on the pasture, near the fence or even due to a stab by the horn. Injuries may occur in the stable, too. These signs do not affect durability; in fact, they are proofs of natural life. Nature does not allow anybody to affect or control her. Thus, minor irregularities of colour and matter structure are natural and nice, they make our leather cover furniture sets unique.
15. Why is it possible that in case of type follow-up order of a previously purchased leather set the covers may differ in colour?
Every leather has a different structure and different natural signs.
- At different skin locations (back, bottom, belly) the dye will adhere differently
- The dye is transparent, thus displaying a lighter colour on lighter skin parts and scar tissue, whereas darker on other parts.
- Every cattle has a different living environment and diet, all affecting the fibre structure of their skins.
Thus, in the case of follow-up orders (i.e. in the case of supplementing your set) minor differences in colour must be counted with.
16. What advantages do leather furniture sets have?
- Leather has proved through millennia of use, experience and innovative processing made it an especially durable and valuable natural raw material.
- On the other hand, leather furniture brings lasting joy and comfort to its user.
- Leather has been used as furniture cover for much longer time than textile.
- Leather has proved that it is good, massive and extremely durable.
- Leather is a special thing and it proves good taste.
- Leather is a natural material, encorporating such positive properties that cannot be said about any other cover material: it is transpirant, absorbs humidity yet keeping water away, balances temperature and protects against dust allergy as it does not allow dust to penetrate.
- Due to its naturality, leather is very fashionable today.
- Using innovative technologies, all the modern effects can be produced using leather, and the colours match contemporary trends, too.
- Leather is beautiful by nature, and it is always a unique value.
17. What decorative stitchings can I choose from? What is the point in contrast stitching?
On stitching the cover materials of furniture sets we have to distinguish between traditional (normal) decorative stitching and stitching with contrast thread (contrast stitching). The aim of both is to make the appearance of the set more beautiful. In the case of normal decorative stitching, the colour of the thread is almost identical to that of the cover material, of course, minor differences may occur. The essence of decorative stitching using contrast thread is to highlight the stitching, thus making the appearance of the set even more aesthetical and emphatic. Thus, the colour of the contrast thread is not identical to that of the cover material as the aim is to emphasise stitching. In the case of both decorative stitchings the brochures delivered to our retail partners contain the possible colour variants (due to four colour printing, however, minor differences may occur). Contrast stitching however, must not be confused with colour-matching stitching which is only executable in certain cases at an extra charge.
