The rattan strips may appear to have minor scratches on them however this is normal and is part of the manufacturing process. We do try to select pieces of rattan that match as much as possible however in some circumstances some minor variation may occur. Please note: We advise that you avoid exposing the glass top to prolonged sunlight as this can cause damage. Please use a protective film or dust proof cover to protect it from direct sunlight when not being used. Non UK mainland & International Buyers - Please Note.
