IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SOLID WOOD FURNITURE

  • Before becoming a furniture piece, the tree lived many years in the great outdoors and was exposed to the elements. All this has formed him to be as unique as you and me.
  • Traces of nature consisting of branch appendage and annual rings build a special surface, which gains more beauty over the years.
  • Your solid wood furniture may receive unevenness or even form cracks or shrink, which forms part of it’s uniqueness.
  • Also know that structural and color differences are part of it’s nature and no guarantee can be given for these changes.

We make sure to work with suppliers that only use FSC-certified wood in order to ensure that their wood comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

TIPS FOR DAILY USE

  • Wipe the furniture daily with a soft cloth (a slightly moistened cloth is advisable to ensure all dust stays on the cloth).
  • Avoid exposing the wood to alcohol, deodorants, perfumes, nail varnishes and similar liquids. If spillage occurs, wipe immediately with a dry cloth. These liquids will pull moisture from wood when left, causing cracking. Alcohol such as red wine would also stain the wood.
  • We recommend occasionally rotating your acacia wood pieces to expose all angles to an equal amount of air and light to ensure even darkening over time.

 

 

What to do when a spill occurs?

 

  • Clean spills from acacia wood furniture with a soft cloth moistened with warm, soapy water.
  • Dry the furniture with a second soft cloth or allow it to air-dry. Hand-wash/clean but do not soak in water and not exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures.
  • Acacia wood products, like all wood products, should not be placed in the dishwasher.
  • For best results. Avoid polish or cleaning products containing silicone and ammonia, which can dry out natural wood over time.

MATERIAL

Acacia wood is a type of wood that is derived from the Australian-native Acacia trees and shrubs, which are now also found in Asia, the Pacific Islands, Africa and parts of the Americas. There are more than a thousand different varieties of Acacia tree. The hardwood that is derived from the tree is suitable for building long-lasting items of furniture and homewares. Acacia wood is naturally smooth, and even more so when polished. Typically warm in tone, it usually displays quite a distinctive and beautiful natural wood grain. Acacia looks simply stunning whether polished, varnished or natural.
