20thC furniture was finished in many different ways. So, for any care and maintenance options of these items it is best to speak to us at the time of purchase. Every piece of our contemporary handmade furniture is finished using one of our selected finishes. You will be informed to the care and maintenance with your purchase as this can vary slightly dependent on the timber.
Do not use any spirits, bleaches or other chemical cleaners to clean the surface. Please ensure that direct contact with hot objects is avoided. Avoid spillages and do not use any corrosive products such as bleach anywhere near the timber/materials.
All of our furniture is made using natural materials - these can have natural variations.
Timbers have different grain patterns and will change colour over time. Leather and fabrics can change and discolour in time.
It is important to note that these are just characteristics of the natural beauty of the material.
All new furniture may also initially vary in shade from items that have been previously purchased.
Our furniture is designed for typical indoor use.
Excessive temperature and humidity can cause wood to expand, whilst the lack of humidity caused by central heating, for example, can cause warping and/or cracking. If either of these things occur, it is purely a natural reaction of the timber to its environment. Feel free to contact us for any advice.
Periodically check all fixings to ensure none have come loose and tighten where necessary. Never drag furniture when moving - always lift!
