General Care

Please ensure that your furniture is used as it was intended. Do not sit on arms of lounges, do not sit or stand on table tops, and do not pivot on the back legs of chairs.

Sunlight

As with any product, prolonged exposure of furniture to direct sunlight will harm it. Direct exposure to sunlight will cause leather and fabrics to fade and may also cause excessive drying. Direct exposure to sunlight will cause timber products, particularly doors, tops and side panels to warp.

NATURAL LEATHER

Natural leather is a noble and resistant material, which becomes more valuable over time. Its transpiration properties make it warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and its flexibility allows it to mold perfectly to the body’s shape. Characteristics such as healed scars, wrinkles, insect bites, breaks, veining, and variations in grain and color are natural features of hides that give them their value and natural character. For this reason, the hides that our craftsmen select one by one undergo tanning processes that do not alter their natural characteristics, but allow them to become fine leather perfectly suited for use in your home.

TYPES OF LEATHER

Following are some natural characteristics you will find on your leather sofa.

NORMAL WEAR & USAGE

The padding material does not require any specific type of maintenance except for the kind associated with the normal care of the sofa. In particular, if you purchase sofas that have a fiber filling or down padding, it will be necessary to model or ‘dress’ them to ensure they return to their initial look, which will have altered during transit.

Things you should know

During the first three months of use, polyurethane foam padding tends to soften then should permanently stabilise. This settling may also create slight folds on the covering, which is a completely normal characteristic of the product.

LEATHER CARE & CLEANING

Do not allow dust to accumulate on the leather surface. Weekly, wipe dust off with a soft, damp cloth.

Any spills must be removed immediately using a soft, non abrasive damp cloth or absorbent paper, applying minimal pressure from the outside of the stain moving towards the centre.

For natural leathers, only clean with a soft dry cloth or soft brush by dusting off any dirt. Incase of spills, use a soft dry cloth or soft brush. Try to avoid greasy spills as they stain and cannot be effectively removed.

 

Fabric Upholstered Furniture

If a thread becomes loose on the fabric, simply cut it off. Do not pull it. Dust is best removed using your vacuum cleaner with the appropriate attachment. Avoid harsh brushing and sharp objects (rings, buckles, toys) as it will cause snagging of threads. Do not allow cats and dogs to walk on fabric upholstered furniture.

Covers in microfibre will last longer if you clean them using just lukewarm water and mild soap.

Strictly avoid using ethyl alcohol or detergents containing acetone, trichlorethylene, ammonia and other solvents, even in small quantities. Do not use abrasive substances

Do not rub, do not insist.

Maintenance For Wood Products

Avoid accidental impacts with hard objects. Make sure that veneered or lacquered wooden tops are protected by a tablecloth when in use. In case of accidental spills and/or stains on wooden tops, act quickly by blotting the surface with a clean dry cloth or absorbent paper.

Do not place hot objects on veneered or lacquered wooden tops and do not use them as ironing boards.

Keep the product away from the heat. Make sure that veneered or lacquered wooden tops are exposed to an even amount of light over time, for example by periodically opening the extensions or by frequently moving objects such as vases or accessories.

Make sure that the elements touching the floor are kept away from damp.

Avoid any contact with chemical substances commonly used for floor cleaning.

Cleaning Instructions For Wooden Products

Clean regularly your wooden products using a damp cloth with a solution made of water and a limited quantity of mild soap or use specific detergents for wood. Repeat the treatment if necessary and absorb any excess liquid with a dry cloth or absorbent paper after each cleaning operation.

Do not use abrasive substances.

In case of matt finishes, do not use wax-based detergents for wood, otherwise the surface will become glossy.

Glass

Use a regular glass cleaner with an appropriate soft cloth for glass. Do not apply glass cleaner to surrounding areas or the frosted side of the glass. Always use a mat to avoid hot objects being in direct contact with glass. Avoid contact with sharp or hard objects as this will cause scratching.

Never lift glass tops from the ends of a table as this will put unnecessary stress on the surface and may cause it to break.

Ceramic

It is extremely easy to clean ceramic glass surfaces, the material is waterproof, doesn’t absorb liquids and it is completely hygienic. For regular cleaning, you can use any detergent suitable for ceramic surfaces or the soap you normally use in the kitchen.

Products With Mechanisms And Components Assembled With Fixing Elements

Keep the instructions and the keys that were supplied to you for future reference.

Your product will last longer and in better conditions if you check periodically that all screws are properly tightened, especially those more subject to movements.
