Care & Maintenance

A complete guide on how to care and maintain our furniture created by us.

Furniture

Your chairs and furniture will undertake constant wear.
Ensure to follow the cleaning guide for wooden frames and seats throughout their lifespan.

  • Wipe with a soft, slightly damp cloth and dry with a lint free cloth. Use a very mild soap and water solution, and dry with a cloth.
  • Avoid any bleach, chlorine and silicone-based products.
  • The colour of your wooden furniture can be altered through excessive heat from direct sunlight and radiators and can cause cracks in the wooden frames.
  • Wine, coffee and tea can cause immediate discolouration, dry and clean immediately to avoid permanent marks.
  • Do not stack chairs on tables – When cleaning the area, if the chairs fall then breakage is likely to occur.
  • Care must be taken moving furniture around as dragging can cause damage within the wooden frame.
  • Avoid using Danish oil near upholstery and leather when applying to oiled wood.

UPHOLSTERY

FABRIC

Occasionally use a soft brush vacuum cleaner on fabric seat covers. For spillages, soak with an absorbent cloth with blotting actions. Work from the outside in with spills to avoid spreading, always consult the fabric company for best cleaning advise.

LEATHER & FAUX LEATHER

Leather can be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth and a mild soap and water solution. Do NOT exert too much force when cleaning leather. Allow to dry naturally and buff with a clean dry cloth. Do NOT use polish, saddle soaps or sprays on the leather. Note that real leather will naturally wear over time in high traffic areas and seat spots.

TABLE TOPS

TIMBER, GRANITE & GLASS TABLE TOPS

Your table tops will endure regular and constant wear throughout their lifespan. To keep your table tops in good condition, it is important to both clean and maintain your top to the recommended guidelines.

  • Always blot any spills immediately, wiping table tops with a soft, slightly damp cloth and dry with a lint free cloth.
  • Only clean with a mild detergent solution such as Fairy Liquid and remove any excess moisture, glass tops should be cleaned with a non-solvent based cleaner and soft cloth.
  • Sanitising sprays are NOT recommended. Long term use of a sanitising spray will damage the lacquer/surface.
  • Polish, bleach or chlorine will also DAMAGE the lacquer/surface if they contain alcohol, ammonia and/or acids, please keep in mind that citrus juices (lemon especially) and alcohol can damage the appearance of granite and marble due to the vulnerable natural or polished stone surface.
  • Do not stack chairs on tables – When cleaning the area, if the chairs fall then breakage is likely to occur.
  • Silicone based polish is NOT recommended and will lead to a build-up of silicone film altering the table top’s appearance.
  • Avoid dragging, scraping and cutting with sharp objects.
  • Protect your table tops from hot crockery with heat protecting place mats.

METAL TABLE TOPS

Copper and Zinc are elements. Stainless is an alloy, and Brass is an alloy of both Copper and Zinc. These metals can all react with each other and other metals like Iron, they can also react to acids in foods and drinks.

  • Maintain your metal by reapplying wax as and when required.
  • Spillages should be cleaned away as soon as possible with warm soapy water and a soft cloth then dried.
  • Do NOT allow liquids to pool and remain on the surface.
  • Do NOT use ammonia, bleach or other chemical-based cleaning products, especially on patina or natural Copper.
  • Mirror polished Copper/Brass can be re-polished with a good proprietary metal polish.
  • Do NOT use scouring pads or other harsh cloths.

BANQUETTE & FIXED SEATING

Maintaining and cleaning your banquette and fixed seating will largely depend on the upholstery type and banquette design and style. Fixed seating will need to be cleaned and inspected regularly.

  • Wipe down with a soft, slightly damp cloth and dry with a lint free cloth. Leather can be maintained with an occasional mild water and soap solution. Fabric can be maintained with a soft brush vacuum cleaner (see upholstery guidelines).
  • Be sure to clean crumbs and dirt from all grooves and joins in your banquette seating.
  • Inspect all deep button seating for dirt and build up
  • Be sure to clean kick board area from any dirt marks from shoes and bags.
  • Wine, coffee and tea spills can cause immediate discolouration, dry and clean immediately to avoid permanent marks.
  • Care must be taken moving modular seating around as dragging can cause damage to the joints within the wooden frame.

MOVING YOUR TABLES

When moving the tables around your premises, care must be given not to drag, slide or push the tables into their position. This could cause damage to the legs or fittings, causing them to potentially misshape or bend. To move the tables correctly, a minimum of two people at both ends are needed to lift the table, ensure all four legs are off the ground, then place carefully back down. This is particularly important for tables without stretchers.
