Now that you've taken delivery of your furniture, we 
want you to be able to enjoy it for years to come . . .

You can rest assured that all our furniture is built for everyday use but we would recommend following just a few simple care instructions to keep it looking tip-top

Caring for fabrics. . . our definitive do's and don'ts

All our upholstery and furniture is designed to be easy to live with (no need to ban the children or pets!) so you don't have to go to great lengths to keep it looking its best.

Our upholstered items are not pre-treated, so we strongly recommend spraying them with fabric protector before using them (see Caring for fabrics, below).

If the worst happens and there's a spillage or stain you can't deal with yourself, it's best to consult a professional upholstery cleaner.


WE RECOMMEND WE DON'T ADVISE

√ Treating new upholstered furniture with a fabric protector as soon as possible. Our preferred brand is Scotchgard, which is available in most DIY stores. Instructions may vary, so always test a small area first before full application.


√  
Vacuuming regularly – dust can build up quickly and make fabrics look grubby so use the upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner to keep your upholstery clean. 


√ Cleaning fabric immediately if a spillage occurs to avoid permanent staining. Use a clean, dry, absorbent cotton cloth to blot up the spill. If the stain is still visible, we recommend professional cleaning of the item.


√ 
Plumping up cushions after use and turning them on a regular basis so that they don't lose their shape.

X Sitting on upholstered furniture if you are wearing clothing with transferable dyes, such as blue jeans, as the dye could transfer onto the upholstered furniture.


X Positioning upholstered furniture in direct sunlight or too close to a heat source, as this could cause bleaching.

Looking after wood. . . our definitive do's and don'ts

Our dining tables have already been sealed with a water-based acrylic varnish, so will easily withstand normal wear and tear.

However, taking good care of the wood will help it to keep looking pristine for many years.


WE RECOMMEND WE DON'T ADVISE

 √ Using coasters and placemats to help prevent water marks and stains.


√ Using heat-resistant table mats for hot dishes, etc.


√ Removing spillages immediately using a clean cloth.


√ Wiping the surface of the table with a clean, soft damp cloth after each use. 

X Sitting on arms of chairs or leaning back on the chair legs as this could loosen the joints and lead to permanent damage. 


X
 Using abrasive cleaning products, such as scouring powders or cream cleaners, vinegar, lemon juice or acidic products, as these can cause damage to table tops.


X Using furniture polishes as they can damage the protective layer. 


X Leaving liquid spillages to soak into the wood as this may cause permanent staining.


X Placing anything hot directly on wood as this could mark it.
