How do I care for my wooden furniture?

Cleaning Your Wooden Furniture

Always clean your wooden furniture with a clean damp, but not wet, cloth and always use a dry cloth immediately after to dry up excess moisture.

Never use products that have harsh or abrasive chemical contents as these will damage your wooden furniture and strip the wood of its protective finish.

We recommend dusting your furniture regularly with a lint free cloth.

A natural beeswax / vegetable polish may be applied once or twice a year but avoid silicone polishes as the build up of silicon will alter the appearance of the wood.

If the wood surface has been painted, we recommend the same cleaning methods, however, if necessary, you may use a small amount of mild detergent (such as washing up liquid) to clean sticky or dirty marks, and work small sections at a time.

Do not use oil or polish containing oil on painted surfaces.

Spillages

Avoid spilling any liquids onto your furniture as they may stain or affect the finish if not immediately attended to. Spills should be removed immediately with a dry cloth.

Sunlight and Heat

Avoid exposing your furniture to any excessive heat sources such as in front of radiators as this can cause cracking.

Direct sunlight will cause the colour of real wood to change, even if it has been finished with a specialist product. This will be particularly apparent if placed under a window.

Never place hot dishes or cups directly onto wooden surfaces without the use of a protective mat.

General Care

Take care when moving the furniture. Dragging pieces across the floor may cause damage to the joints, dropping furniture onto corners or feet may also cause damage. Always lift into position and lower carefully.

Take care to prevent sharp objects coming into contact with your furniture as scratching may occur.

If your furniture becomes stained, scratched or chipped or suffers other damage we recommend you contact us or seek professional help.

What should I know about hand crafted solid wood furniture?

Handcrafted pieces should be seen as works of art. Individual craftsmen labour to express the excellence of their skills.  The slight variations and imperfections of crafting by hand make each piece unique and this lends itself to a nostalgic character.

Solid wood is an extraordinary and beautiful natural material. No two pieces of wood are the same. Its’ colour, texture and grain are as individual as a person’s personality. As a natural element, there are things that you should know and expect from your real hardwood furniture:

Natural Occurring Characteristics such as knots and variations in grain, colour, and texture are a part of every piece of wood. These characteristics are what make each piece unique.

Natural Movement will occur with all wood products. Wood will expand and contract with seasonal moisture level changes. This may give the appearance of surface checks and fine cracks – often around the knots of the wood. This should not be seen as a defect. Quality craftsmanship will make allowances for this movement, and it in no way affects the structural strength and integrity of the furniture.

Natural Colour Changes will occur to wood with exposure to both natural and artificial light.

It is our opinion that these characteristics, variations and slight imperfections serve only to enhance the beauty of the pieces. Every item of furniture will be a unique piece made exclusively for you.

Natural products displaying any of these characteristics are not defective and cannot be exchanged for the same item.
