Leather

General Care

  • Keep any sharp or abrasive objects such as shoes, belt buckles, zippers etc. away from leather.

  • Keep newspapers, pens and markers away from light coloured leathers as ink stains are

    difficult to remove.

  • Clean and condition your leather regularly. Pay more attention to areas like seats, armrests and headrests which come in direct contact with skin or hair regularly.

  • Do not expose sofa to direct sunlight or powerful lamps to prevent drying of leather.

Cleaning (according to your leather type)

 

Protected leather (Corrected & Semi-Aniline) 

  • For dry dirt:

    Periodically dust using a clean, dry and non-abrasive white cloth.
    If you decide to use a vacuum cleaner on a leather surface, be sure to use a soft and gentle brush head to prevent scratching the surface.

  • For wet stains:
    Remove stain rapidly from the surface by dabbing with absorbent cloth or paper. Then, delicately rub working from the outside towards the 
    centre of the stain using a cloth soaked in lukewarm water. Do not soak the leather surface, dry immediately using a clean dry cloth. Avoid pressing too hard as it may cause the stain to seep into the pores of the leather. Do not dry leather in direct sunlight or with hair dryer.

 

Natural leather (Aniline and Nubuk

  • For dry dirt:

    Brush delicately using a brush with soft bristles or use a vacuum cleaner with low/medium suction power settings, using the specific accessory supplied with the vacuum and avoid rubbing the accessory directly against the leather (to avoid scratching or damaging the leather)

  • For stains caused by substances soluble in waterRemove stain rapidly from the surface by dabbing with absorbent cloth or paper. Then, delicately rub working from the outside towards the centre of the stain using a cloth soaked in lukewarm water. Do not soak the leather surface, dry immediately using a clean dry cloth.

  • For stains caused by greasy substances (oil, ketchup, chocolate): 
    Remove the substance delicately from the surface using absorbent paper, refrain from exerting pressure to prevent the dirt from entering the pores of the leather. Use a clean cloth, soaked in a very dilute solution of neutral soap, rubbing delicately working from the outside towards the
    centre of the stain. Only use water and colourless, mild neutral soap. Dry immediately with clean cloth.

 

Fabric

General Care

  • Maintain the shape and elasticity of cushions by patting them hard once a week.

  • Avoid exposing your sofa to direct sunlight or to powerful lamps.

  • During rainy or moist seasons or environments, use a dehumidifier.

Cleaning

  • Vacuum-clean fabric upholstered products every two weeks to minimize the presence of dust.

  • To remove dust: brush delicately using a brush with soft bristles or use a vacuum cleaner with low/medium suction power settings, using the specific accessory supplied with the vacuum and avoid rubbing the accessory directly against the fabric (to avoid scratching or damaging the fabric).

  • Treat each stain immediately before it is absorbed excessively.

    • For wet stains: Dab with absorbent paper or a white, non-abrasive cloth and then remove the stain. If the stain persists, clean using a dry stain remover that can be purchased from any supermarket. Always test the fabric’s reaction on a part of the fabric that is hidden before applying it on the stain.

    • Avoid pouring the solvent directly onto sofa, pour onto clean cloth and clean the stain by adopting a gentle circular movement, working from the outside towards the centre.

  • If washing is necessary, we recommend finding a professional dry cleaner to perform the task.

 

Wood

General Care  

  • Always use coasters or mats to prevent white rings or spots from damaging the wood surface.

  • Refrain from dragging your wooden furniture.

  • Always lift the furniture as sliding furniture could hurt the floor with scratches and also damage furniture legs from applying too much pressure sideways.

Cleaning

  • Wipe the furniture with a piece of damp cloth in the direction of grain.

  • Dust accelerates the ageing process in woods, where dust most easily collects, clean thoroughly on a regular basis.

  • In the event of a stain, clean-up as soon as possible.

  • Do not use water-soluble agents such as gasoline or alcohol to wipe the wood.

  • Do not use wet tissue or wet cloth, because the alcohol content in wet tissue may damage the finish.

  • If cleaning has been neglected for a long period of time, we recommend using a professional cleaning agent. Apply an adequate amount of the cleaning agent onto a soft cotton cloth to clean the furniture, and then use the other side of the cloth to wipe the cleaning agent off.

 

Glass

General Care  

  • Always be gentle when placing anything on glass furniture. A hard hand can cause cracks or even breaking of the glass.

  • Avoid displaying accent pieces that have sharp edges or rough surface. These pieces can scratches the glass.

  • Avoid placing heavy items on your glass furniture. However strong the glass may be, it is still prone to cracking or breakage due to heavy weight.

  • Always use table mats and coasters. Coasters will protect your glass table from heat and water rings.

Cleaning

  • Regular cleaning of glass furniture is very important. Being transparent shows all the dust, streaks and finger prints very clearly. Make it a point to wipe it every day to keep the furniture sparkling clean. You can use a window cleaner or a solution of water and vinegar to maintain its shine.

  • When cleaning glass furniture, avoid wearing rings and bracelets to prevent scratching the glass.

  • You can add 4-5 drops of baby shampoo to warm water to clean your glass furniture.

  • To clean oil-stained glass, use a very small amount of liquid detergent first, then wash the area with water, and finally wipe it dry with a soft cloth.

 

Marble

General Care  

  • Apply marble polish (available in hardware stores) on a regular basis to maintain the stone's lustre.

  • To prevent ring marks, place coasters or trivets under glasses and dishes.

  • Use mats or runners beneath hard objects that might scratch the surface.

  • Always blot spills up immediately and rinse with a clean, damp cloth.

Cleaning

  • Dust the surface once or twice a week with a soft cloth.

  • To remove stains, apply natural cleansers onto a soft sponge and gently scrub the stains. Then use a clean cloth to wipe again.

  • Do not use a steel wired brush or steel wool pad to scrub the surface.

  • Do not use vinegar, bleach, ammonia or other general-purpose cleaners.
