Material Care Instructions

Synthetic leather

Dust off regularly and use slightly wet sponge periodically. Use light soapy water to remove stains. Persistent stains can be carefully removed by using cleaning solvents. Always clean from seam to seam. Take caution when using sharp items high colouring liquids.

Solid wood

As wood is a hygroscopic natural product it is depending on shifts in temperature and humidity. Range depending on type of wood, construction, and place of location. Optimum conditions: temp: 18-21℃(64-70℉), air humidity: 45-55%.

Untreated and lacquered wood

Dust off regularly. Use slightly wet cloth once in a while. Cleaning shall be performed in the direction of the wood texture. Avoid stagnant moisture.

Oiled, leached, and waxed wood

Dust off regularly with a slightly wet cloth. Protect and clean with impregnation or paraffin oil based products.

Wood laminated with foils and paper-foils, or coated with melamine resin:

Use antistatic dusters for daily care. Use lukewarm suds to remove light staining. Do not use abrasive detergents, any kind of wax, or furniture polish. Melamine resin can be cleaned best with cleaning solvents in combination with a chamois leather.

Fabric

Use vacuum cleaner regularly. Do not use any solvent containing cleaning agent. Take off spilled liquids immediately from seam to seam at best. Use distilled/purified water to avoid chalk stains.

Velvet

Stripes in the fabric? This can be caused by the pressure exerted on the fabric by the packaging. Fortunately, you can easily solve this yourself by steaming the fabric (use your steam iron, for example) or by spraying it with moisture. Then you can brush the fabric with a clean soft brush. The piles of the fabric will be repaired in this way!

Glass

Use glass cleaner on soft fabric. Use table mats on glass surfaced to avoid scratches. Do not use abrasive detergents.

Metal

Moisture on metal can leave permanent stains. Always use coasters to protect the metal from moisture. Wipe off moisture immediately with a clean cotton cloth. Do not use aggressive cleaning agents, a neutral soap is sufficient for daily cleaning.

Polished Marble or Stone Care instructions

Quarried stone or marble contains natural fissures along with colour variations. These are not considered defects as they enhance the look and the uniqueness of this item. As hard as stone or marble is, the surface is still porous and might stain from liquids or foods. So please use the pad to be put on the marble top before you put a hot glass / cup on the marble top. Glass cleaner or soap and water may be used to maintain the stone or marble surfaces. As a recommendation we suggest polishing these materials with a clean wax. For best results use a polisher product which contains carnauba wax. This type of wax is readily available from your local home improvement store. Waxing often will help protect the surface from stains caused by water or liquids. Please note that applying wax before use of this product with foods or liquids is highly recommended.
