Keeping your furniture beautiful
Wood, Veneer and Laminate:
Sun doesn't just damage your skin, it can have an effect on your furniture too. Our recommendation is that you avoid leaving anything on the surface for the first 6-8 weeks of having it, just so that you avoid getting any marks or rings appearing if the furniture changes colour.
A damp (never soaking wet) cloth will do it. Dry the surfaces thoroughly afterwards. Both wood and veneer can be damaged by liquids, so if you spill anything on it, be sure to wipe it dry immediately. If you need to remove any stains, go gently – use mild soap and warm water.
Sun and heat damage
Leather can lighten if it's exposed to direct sunlight, so be careful where you place it if you want to avoid this. It can also be damaged if it's exposed to heat – don't put it too close to a radiator.
You can clean leather using a soft, dry cloth. Or a cloth and soapy water for a bit more elbow grease. To keep your leather looking its best, we recommend you clean it regularly with a leather cleaner.
