Looking After Leather & Fabric

THE FRAME

The frames of our sofas & accent chairs are crafted from hardwood, each one of excellent quality and strength. There is a 10-year warranty on our frames, but keep in mind that damage caused by mistreatment cannot be covered.

  • Do not jump on the furniture.
  • Don’t sit or put unnecessary strain on the arms.
  • Lift, don’t drag or push, the furniture.

THE FILLING

The inner fabric and materials of our furniture and furnishings depends on the model, however, we generally use fibre, foam and feather blends – or a mix of these. Each one has its own properties…

  • Polyurethane foam: Usually of 2.0 high-density specification.
  • Fibre: Fibre-filled pieces ensure a soft feel. Both foam and fibre fillings tend to soften in the first few weeks/days of use, before settling. This may create soft creasing, but this is to be expected.
  • Feather filled: A large number of our decorative cushions are feather filled, giving them a luxurious feel for incredible comfort. These cushions require plumping and reshaping with use.

 

LEATHER

Famously, leather improves with age. It softens and takes on its own characteristics – this is an inevitable feature of using real leather. But leather must be properly maintained if it is to age in an aesthetically pleasing way, avoiding cracking and other unwanted marks. It’s also worth remembering that leather hides are all individual and vary in colour and texture, so there might be a slight variation from one to the other, even if two items are ordered in the same shade. This is a natural quality of the material.

  • Keep the leather away from direct sunlight.
  • Avoid placing the leather near direct heat or air conditioning, as this will dry it out and result in cracks.
  • Natural oils produced by the body can affect leather, so regular cleaning with a leather-specific product is essential.
  • Dust and dirt can be absorbed by the exterior and disturb the surface if not regularly cleaned.

FABRIC

Fabric care is specific to the fabric in question and may require a tailored product or treatment to get the best out of your it, in terms of longevity and look. Always refer back to the fabric type, but there are general rules when it comes to soft furnishings.

  • Regular hoovering is important for removing dust – a soft-brush attachment is the best option.
  • Upholstery shampoo (when suitable) is great for refreshing the appearance and scent. Make sure to allow the fabric to dry thoroughly before use.
  • Clean up spills quickly – don’t allow moisture to soak in.
  • Rotate cushions regularly to maintain the shape and avoid wear on one side.
  • Avoid wetting the fillings, stick to the exterior.
  • Don’t clean using a harsh brush or cloth, as this may mark the fabric.
  • If concerned about spills, consider opting for an Aquaclean fabric.

THE FEET

Some of our sofa models may have the feet packed separately for transport and our delivery teams will assemble the furniture when it arrives. But because they are removable, when moving the sofa, avoid pulling on them at the risk of damaging them or the surrounding area. Lift from the base, not by the feet.
