Give your furniture the care it deserves. Through easy upkeep and a few basic rules, you'll be as happy with your furniture as the day it arrived to your door.
Room Temperature Settings
Proper humidity and level temperature is key to ensuring natural products such as leather and wood stay true to quality. Always make sure to do the following:
- Avoid placing your furniture into direct sunlight. Exposure over a long period of time will result in fading and loss of color.
- Keep furniture away from heating or air conditioning registers. These remove necessary moisture from your furniture and dry it out, causing additional cracks or splits.
Wood Care & Handling
- Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight and rearrange accessories from time to time to prevent spot bleaching. This causes darker finishes to lighten and sometimes cause lighter finishes to darken.
- For daily maintenance go simple. Use clean and soft cotton rags or cloths to wipe off dust on the surface along the grains. Never use damp rags or anything with a hard surface to rub onto the furniture. Always keep the surface clear of any acid or chemical substances.
- In order to avoid any damages, defects or issues from occurring, refrain from stacking large and/or heavy objects on top of the furniture. Use coasters or felt pads underneath objects if possible.
- Keep furniture away from heating and air conditioning sources to prevent loss of moisture in wood.
Upholstery Care & Handling
Please note that no two pieces of leather are the same; they all have different textures, heredities and backgrounds and our daily use exposes furniture to various strains. Please note and use the following care tips as a guide to protecting your furniture.
There are 3 main characteristics or "blemishes" of natural leather: scratches, wrinkles and scars.
When the texture is smooth to touch with slight variation of color to the surrounding area of the dye.
When there are natural folds highlighting unique grain patterns a one-of-a-kind upholstered furniture is created.
Scratches and deeper rubs that create an organic and distinctively authentic character. These marks do not affect durability of the hide.
Upkeep leather by practicing the following
- Keep your leather fresh and moisturized using leather conditioners and/or wipes, every few months.
- Avoid cleaners which use harmful chemical products. Many of these are harsh and are not safe for use on upholstery.
- Evade stubborn stains & protect your upholstery by avoiding household chemicals such as detergents, window cleaners, bleaches, nail polish, nail polish remover, glue, shoe polish, paint, and other corrosive materials.
- Leather is a natural product and any stress will result in tears. Additionally, when stretched, the upholstery might not completely return to its original shape. Therefore, when leather is used more intensively, it may become looser over time.
- If pillow cushions are sewn to the frame, any pulling or tugging might result in a tear. Please avoid any leaning, sitting or reaching over the back of the sofa.
- To keep your cushions looking fluff and new avoid sitting in one area and use the seating areas evenly.
- We love our pet friends, but leather and fabrics are not resistant to animals. Allowing pets on your upholstered furniture is not recommended. Their claws may scratch the covers, which can lead to an expensive repair. Their saliva is acidic and may also harm the upholstered finish.
Fabric Care and Cleaning Tips:
- Weekly vacuuming or light brushing helps to remove soil and to prevent dirt embedded between the fibers.
- Avoid the use of dyes, acids, paints, inks, nail polish and polish removers around your furniture.
- Keep fabric furniture away from direct sunlight to avoid fading.
- Periodic cleaning by an authorized technician is recommended to prevent any soil buildup caused by perspiration and body oils that may shorten the life of your fabric upholstered furniture.
- Polyester fibers: Use the foam only from water based cleaning agents such as mild soap or use non solvent upholstery cleaner.
- Cotton, Linen Rayon, Silk or Wool: Spot clean using a mild water-free solvent or dry cleaning products.
