FURNITURE CARE GUIDE

Furniture requires regular care and maintenance. We have put together these care tips so you can enjoy and take the best care of your furniture.

Indoor Wood & Veneer Furniture

Most of our wooden products are hand-made. They may contain imperfections & natural distress in the wood. This adds to the rustic charm of the product.

  • Wooden furniture requires regular care
  • Avoid placing wooden furniture in direct sunlight, this will damage the wood by causing it to fade and dry out overtime
  • Water can cause permanent swelling and stain damage
  • After using a damp cloth, wipe the surface dry with a soft, non-abrasive cloth in the direction of the wood grain
  • Avoid placing hot objects directly onto the surface – make use of coasters, trays, saucers, placemats etc

Polyurethane (PU) / Bonded Leather Furniture

  • Keep furniture away from direct sunlight, this will cause the PU / Leather to fade making it more susceptible to cracks and tears
  • Dust often with a soft, non-abrasive cloth/duster. The non-abrasive damp may be slightly damp. Avoid a soaking wet cloth. Do not scrub, simply wipe gently with clean water
  • Avoid using any abrasive detergents and products that contain ammonia, any cleaning products not designed for PU / Leather will cause damage.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any excess dust that gradually builds up in crevices and under the cushions
  • Wrinkles will naturally develop as you settle into the new product. To keep wrinkles to a minimum, puff regularly. Please bear in mind these wrinkles are a normal part of the maturing of an upholstered piece of furniture

Fabric / Microfibre / Cotton Furniture

  • Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight, this will cause fading overtime an make it more vulnerable to tears
  • Use a vacuum cleaner often to remove any excess dust that gradually builds up in crevices and under the cushions
  • In the event of liquid damage or stains, immediately remove the spill using a soft, non-abrasive cloth by wiping in a circular direction. Make sure that the cloth is clean. Never scrub the spill abrasively

Woven / Indonesian Furniture

Most of our Indonesian furniture is hand-made. They may contain imperfections & natural distress in the wood and weaving. This adds to the rustic charm of the product.

  • All woven items are recommended for indoor/undercover patio use ONLY
  • Exposing these items to weather elements will cause damage
  • A soft bristle brush can be used to remove any dust
  • Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any excess dust that gradually builds up between the weaves

Polypropylene Furniture

  • Polypropylene is suitable for indoor and patio use. For patio use, do not expose to heat for long periods of time
