The freight program is designed to be delivered freight prepaid to the designated consignee, based upon a minimum of three or more items. If the shipment does not meet the minimum unit requirement, a surcharge of $95 net per shipment will be assessed. Multiple orders for IDEON products may be combined to meet the three-piece minimum requirement, as long as all items are shipping on the same day to the same delivery location. Due to different carriers and shipping methods, IDEON cannot be combined with SitOnIt Seating products to meet the three-piece requirement.
Large orders may require additional lead time:
• Aviera: 50+ seat positions
• Arioso, Composium and Visit Modular: 25+ seat positions
Textile samples are available on our website. Samples are available for authorized dealers only.
Fabrics outside of our carded program require pre-approval for each specific chair model. IDEON can grade in most fabrics and we accept Customer Owned Material (COM), as long as the fabrics are pre-tested and approved. Textile samples are required for testing. Test results are available using the Textile Compatibility Tool within 48 hours of receiving fabric samples. Please contact Customer Experience for fabric test instructions at (877)-994-3366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The multi-upholstery option allows one fabric to be selected for the back and a different fabric for the seat. A standard upcharge applies to all multi-upholstery orders. Different fabrics and grades may be combined because back, seat, arm and valance are separately priced. Add the single multi-upholstery upcharge to the cost of the components. For example: upcharge + any grade price for the seat + any grade price for the back + any grade price for the arm.

Graded hold is a term used for fabrics that are not part of an active carded program (for example: retired, graded-in such as Arc-Com). The hold is released once we receive confirmation availability from the supplier.

We got you covered. Our Stain-to-Match program is designed to match your distinctive wood stain finish on our wood surfaces.
First-time custom stains must be approved before acceptance of an order. A one-time net fee applies if stains are not in our library. Thereafter, a Stain-to-Match upcharge is applied to each chair. The upcharge is waived if 50 or more units are ordered:
• Stain not in our library: $275
• Stain-to-match upcharge: $70
Since all new stains must be approved before they can be applied to seating or tables, please allow extra time for your order. Custom finishes generally require two weeks to create a matched sample and then we will need the signed Approval Form before we can accept your order, schedule it for production and acknowledge a ship date. We reserve the right to decline the opportunity to match a finish color.
1. Send a 3” x 4” or 4” x 6” sample of the stain, along with the model numbers and options to which the finish will be applied to:
Customer Experience Custom Finish Program
6415 Katella Avenue Cypress, CA 90630
Include dealer name, contact and project reference.
2. Once approved, we will send a finish sample to you along with any caveats that may apply. We will keep an identical sample in our files for future orders. Custom finishes generally require two weeks to create a matched sample.
3. Carefully review the sample. Note the STAIN ID# (example: SM#070214-1); this will be needed for your order. Return the signed approval form to Customer Experience along with your order. We need your approval before we can accept the order, schedule it for production or acknowledge a ship date.
4. IDEON orders using our stain-to-match program will have a lead time of 15 days.
When ordering, enter the approved STAIN ID# in the Material section of the Final Price Calculation worksheet or on your purchase order.
Custom Finish Terms & Conditions:
Wood is inherently beautiful because of natural variations in color, grain and texture. There may be minor differences from one chair to the next, even though they are finished at the same time. We cannot guarantee exact matches of grain or natural wood color.
With routine care and maintenance, your new IDEON chair should provide years of comfortable and trouble-free seating. Occasional light cleaning is all that is necessary. Chairs are made from a variety of materials including plastic, metal, wood, laminate and fabric. Each material has specific cleaning requirements. Follow the general guidelines below for best results and preservation of the warranty.
• Regularly clean chair fabric by vacuuming or light brushing
• Always check code before deciding which cleaning products to use
• Test cleaning product in an inconspicuous area first to guard against color bleeding or fabric shrinkage
• Follow all directions and advice of cleaning agent manufacturer
“Plastic” is commonly used to describe a multitude of chair components, from polyurethane shells and hard nylon glides and casters to soft, malleable arm pads and flexible and durable ballistic nylon upholstery.
Ordinary soiling acquired through normal use can be cleaned with a damp, soft cloth or sponge and a nonabrasive surface cleaner. If a scrub brush is needed, make sure it has a soft bristle to prevent scratching. Successive cleaning may be required using a soft brush and 70% isopropyl alcohol.
METAL AND LAMINATES
For normal cleaning, use a damp cloth or wet cheesecloth with a mild, nonabrasive detergent solution. After cleaning, use a damp, clean cloth with water to rinse the surface removing soap residue and then wipe with a clean dry cloth. Avoid harsh chemical or abrasive cleaning compounds.
WOOD & VENEER
For optimum wood and veneer care, dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth then wipe with a soft, dry cloth in the direction of the grain.
Use cleaning products that advertise “for wood use.” Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning compounds. Mild detergents or other solvents such as isopropyl alcohol will degrade the clear coat and sealer over time. For best results use products free of wax and silicones.
IDEON has adopted industry standards for fabric cleanability. Fabrics are marked with a code indicating the appropriate cleaning method. This information is available on the textile cards for the various collections and is available on our website at sitonit.net or ideondesign.com. The code may be printed on a label under seat cushion. Use the following cleaning codes as a guide for spot removal and overall cleaning.
D: Dry Clean only
L: Clean with warm water and mild soap
S: Only pure, water-free solvents may be used
W: Water-based cleaning agents or foam may be used. (Caution: Use of water-based or detergent-based solvents may cause spotting, shrinking and/or permanent water stains. Solvent cleaning agents will not remove water stains)
WS: Clean with water-based cleaning agents, foam or pure, water-free solvents (Energine, Carbona, Renuzit or other similar products). Vacuuming orlight brushing is recommended to prevent dust or soil build up.
X: Vacuum only. Clean these fabrics by vacuuming or light brushing to prevent accumulation of dust and grime. Weekly vacuuming is recommended.
