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
- Think about where your furniture is going to live in your home. Wood is a natural material, and it doesn’t like extremes of heat and cold – it won’t thrive in air conditioned rooms or conservatories. Direct sunlight may fade the finish, and heat from radiators will dry your furniture out. And unless your furniture has been designed for the garden, don’t leave your furniture outside.
- It’s a good idea to keep a gap between the wall and the back of your furniture, about 25mm. This lets air flow through, keeping the temperature stable and prolonging the life of your oak.
- And if you have wooden floors, place protective felt under your furniture’s feet – this protects both the furniture and floor.
What to do when a spill occurs?
The wax will form a protective layer on the oak, so for everyday cleaning, just wipe the surface down with a clean, damp cloth, or use cleaning products specifically designed for hardwood. For concentrated spills that might stain, blot the liquid with a clean, soft and slightly damp cloth. If you discover a set in stain that you haven’t noticed before, it’s best to contact a professional furniture restorer.
