Product Care Guide

oiled wood

Furniture with an oiled finish requires some low level maintenance to keep the wood protected and looking its best. Oil provides a semi-permeable finish, which means some liquids can penetrate the surface. To ensure the finish remains as resilient as possible to staining, it may require periodic re-oiling. Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight or next to strong heat sources.

Day to day cleaning: Wipe clean with a little detergent and a non-abrasive cloth, then buff off with a clean, dry cloth. Wipe up wine, oil and any liquids that might stain as quickly as possible. It is important not to use any chemical cleaning products or bleach as this will remove the protective layer of oil. We advise using Osmo ‘Wash and Care’ for cleaning, as it contains soaps and oils to nourish and prevent the wood from drying out. Regular use of Osmo ‘Wash and Care’ will prolong the oil finish and maintain its resistance to stains.

House leather

The house leather we have selected is a pure aniline leather. As such, the leather may contain natural markings such as scarring, growth marks and differences in colouring. These markings are a part of the beauty of this natural material, which has been selected for its beauty, high quality and comfort. As a natural material, and will age according to its environment, creating a beautiful patina over time.

Day to day cleaning: Direct sunlight and heat can cause aniline leather to discolour or dry. Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight or next to strong heat sources. As an untreated material, the leather is naturally absorbent. It is important not to use any chemical cleaning products or bleach, as this will damage the leather. If cleaning is essential for small marks, carefully dab with a clean, lint-free cloth, and vacuum using the small brush attachment. For more pronounced marks, please refer to a professional leather cleaner. It is important not to use any abrasive cleaning products or bleach as this could damage the leather and surrounding wood or lacquer.

Limestone

The limestone we have selected is a natural material and as such may contain fossils. Each piece is subject to variations in composition and form. These variations are part of the beauty of the material rather than a fault. They tell its story, and add unique character and dimension. Avoid placing furniture in direct sunlight or next to strong heat sources.
