Every piece of Furniture is produced to the highest standards and if well maintained you should continue to enjoy each piece as it matures in your home.
With all our Tables and Units we recommend that you use table mats under hot plates, mugs and glasses and protective pads under ornaments will help avoid any possible scratches. Ideally mats should be taken off after use and not left on indefinitely, so as not to be effected by natural light.
With High Gloss, Glass or Matt Finishes we recommend the following:
For day to day cleaning a simple wipe down with a feather duster or soft microfibre/E-Cloth. For a deeper clean spray your high gloss surface with water and clean with an e-cloth – then buff dry with a soft, dry cloth. Wipe up liquid spills immediately, and for more sticky spills use clean water and wipe with an e-cloth. Don’t leave water to air dry – instead buff dry with a dry microfibre cloth. Do not use any chemical based cleaners or abrasive cleaning agents or cloths (e.g. linen cloths, paper towels etc) on High Gloss surfaces as these will scratch. If your furniture becomes stained, scratched or chipped, or suffers other damage we recommend professional help is sought to restore it
For Solid Wood we recommend the following:
Moisture is the worst enemy of wooden furniture so all spillages should be wiped up immediately. When cleaning, preferably use a lightly damp cloth and always wipe the wood thoroughly dry after cleaning, with the grain. Perhaps every six months, your furniture could be enhanced with an application of Beeswax. Note the manufacturer’s instructions but apply lightly with the grain and remove with a lint free cloth. This will help the appearance and protect the piece for further use.
Where possible, rotate your furniture 1-2 times per year to ensure uniform exposure to light because with all natural materials, exposure to light will mellow the colour of the wood as time goes by. The differences in grain pattern and colour is a reminder of the natural woods used in producing our Furniture. Small knots and burrs may also be sporadically present, which characterise the joining of branches to the main tree. These are all natural and are unique to each piece of Furniture. Do not drag your furniture, rather lift cleanly as dragging will pull at joints and hinges and can result in damage. Over time small stress marks may occasionally appear in the furniture, which merely reflect movement in the wood due to humidity changes and this again is entirely natural. Avoid placing furniture where there are extremes of temperature as this can lead to excessive splits and cracks.
