Wood

Wood is a natural material susceptible to climate and the elements. Avoid placing your furniture in highly humid or dry areas, such as directly next to air vents. Direct sunlight may slightly darken or lighten wood furniture.

Dust with a dry, soft cloth. Remove any soil buildup with a damp cloth and dry immediately. Wipe spills immediately with a soft, dry cloth. If water is left standing, white spots can occur but should dissipate over time.

Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasives on any finish. Always use coasters or trivets to prevent heat and water from having direct contact with wood surfaces.

Use felt pads on any displays or hard objects that are placed directly on the wood. Avoid contact with certain materials, such as rubber, which might react with the finish.

Upholstery

Rotate cushions and pillows weekly to distribute wear. Vacuum upholstery weekly using the upholstery attachment and crevice tool of your vacuum to remove loose particles. Periodic cleaning by a professional upholstery cleaning service is the only recommended cleaning method for your upholstery, including furniture base beneath slipcovers. Annual cleaning is suggested, but this may vary depending on use.

Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight. All fabric and leather will fade over time.

Leather

Clean periodically with a dry cloth to remove residual dust and prevent dirt buildup.

Leather furniture should be protected from exposure to sunlight and heat, which may cause the leather to fade or lose its soft, supple feel.

Metal

Dust regularly with a soft, dry cloth. Do not use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the finish.

Iron or steel frames will rust if the finish is scratched or if your furniture is exposed to excessive humidity, particularly in saltwater locations.

Marble

Clean with a soft, dry cloth. Wipe spills immediately and avoid abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the marble.
