We want you to enjoy your purchase(s) for many years to come. Here are some tips on how to keep your purchase(s) in peak condition.
Leather furniture maintenance
All our semi aniline leather productsare treated with surface protection, making them easy to clean and maintain; all they require is a little light cleaning once or twice a year.Here are some cleaning guidelines you should follow when taking care of leather furniture:
Leather is a pure natural product that should be treated gently. Vacuum carefully, using a soft brush attachment; this helps to keep the surface clean while avoiding scratches and unnecessary wear and tear.
Tap water contains calcium and can leave stains, so either boil it allowing it to cool slightly before use or use demineralised water, which can be found in most supermarkets. Blend some good quality soap flakes with the water(following manufacturers instructions and directions) and use only the foam for cleaning the leather. When the leather is dry, you can wipe and polish it with a cotton cloth.
Over time and when necessary, add new life to leather with a proprietary leather food. Apply with caution - ensuring that you complete a spot test first in an inconspicuous area - and not too often – once every 6 months is more than ample to maintain optimal appearance.
REMEMBER: Suede furniture MUST NOT have water or leather food applied - only vacuuming.
Try to avoid placing leather furniture in direct sunlight as the colours can fade.Make sure to close the blinds or curtains if there is any sun exposure. Leather furniture should not be placed close to radiators or hot pipes as this dries out the leather and may cause cracking of the leather to occur.
As this leather is the most luxurious type on the market, it also does require delicate care. We recommend you purchase leather protection cream from a trusted leather retailer, and apply it on to your furniture as soon as possible. It is also advisable to repeat the application process 4-6 times a year in order to prolong the life and appearance of your leather furniture.
Please Note: Always avoid using general cleaning or abrasive products on leather furniture as this will cause damage to the surface of the leather. We also advise that you avoid excessive rubbing as this could increase the damage and remove any protective finish. If necessary or in doubt, seek the advice of a trusted and qualified leather specialist.
Cloth furniture maintenance
Our cloth furniture is made from a blend of cashmere and wool, which means it is naturally dirt repellent and easy to maintain. The fabric is also very hardwearing. Here are a few guidelines for cleaning your cloth furniture:
We recommend you vacuum your cloth furniture regularly, at least once a week, to maintain its good looks and to remove any lose debris.
Any stains should be removed immediately with a cloth soaked in a cleaning solution that is recommended for use on a wool mix fabric and is made up to the manufacturers explicit recommendation and direction, then simply blot off the stain (avoiding excessive rubbing). Once the stain is removed blot again with a dry cloth.
Grease stains should be removed by using a chemical cleaner. We do not recommend use of any particular detergent, but suggest seeking advice at a DIY store and then following the instructions on the recommended product.
Please note: if after trying to remove a stain it persist, seek the advice of a professional.
