Congratulations, you’ve made an excellent investment (even if we do say so ourselves). To help you protect and look after your furniture we suggest the following simple care instructions.
Standard, Coated, & Bonded Leather Sofas
These sofas are designed for modern living and have a protective and durable coating that requires less maintenance.
- Remove all dust and crumbs regularly and before cleaning as they have an abrasive effect
- Wipe clean with a warm, damp cloth or leather wipes
- Never use detergents or cleaning chemicals as these can break down the protective surface coating
- Never use a cloth you have used before with detergents or cleaning chemicals
- On light coloured suites be aware that some clothes can transfer dye and stain the leather
Aniline & Semi Aniline Leather Sofas
The leather used on these sofas are in a more natural state and do not have a protective coating. They therefore need some extra care to look after them.
- You'll need to buy a leather care kit that contains both a waterproof spray and a moisturiser
- When you first recieve your sofa treat it with the waterproof spray
- Spills will still need to be wiped off straight away but the waterproof coating will stop it soaking into the leather
- The waterproof coating should be applied at least 3 times a year
- To stop the leather drying out you will need to apply a moisturiser at least once a year
- When cleaning the sofa remove all crumbs and dust, then wipe with a warm, damp cloth or leather wipes
Wooden Dining Tables, Sideboards & Cabinets
The wood used on dining tables, sideboards and cabinets will vary, and so will their construction, whether they are solid or veneered. However the following simple instructions will apply to all.
- Don’t place your furniture too close to direct heat or air conditioning as this can cause the wood to dry out and cracks to develop
- Remember light affects colour so over exposure to sunlight will cause your furniture to fade
- Wipe clean with a warm, damp cloth
- Protect surfaces from hots plates and pans by using place mats
- Some items may have individual care instructions. These will be displayed on their detail page and they may even come with care instructions in the packaging
- Wood is a natural product with imperfections and variations in colour. These add to the character of the product and are not faults
