Care & Buying Guide

  • Fabric frame - professional dry cleaning is advised for more engrained stains. Vacuum arms and frame regularly
  • Fabric cushions - Regularly dust. Always consult a professional dry cleaner for advice.
  • Legs finished using traditional wood oil finish followed by wax: This finish seals the pores of the timber, enhancing the natural structure of the wood and forming a water repellent protection against everyday wear and tear.
  • Avoid intense heat, corrosives or spillages. Any spillages should be wiped clean immediately. 
  • Do not use spirits, bleaches or any other chemical cleaners to clean the timber & fabric.
