The perfect care.

Caring for solid wood and real wood veneer

Thorough care extends the furniture's lasting value and is simultaneously an expression of your appreciation. We have done all that we can to create the best conditions, meaning that you will be able to enjoy an exceptional piece of furniture for many years to come. The surfaces are highly resistant to dirt, moisture and changes in temperature. We would, however, still like to provide you with some great tips to ensure the furniture's proper use:

  • Please ensure to regularly ventilate rooms which are prone to moisture. An ideal room temperature is between 19 – 23°C; humidity between 45 – 55%. In order to prevent the warping or splintering of the wood, the furniture’s exposure to significant changes in air temperature should be kept to a minimum. Please take care to ensure the correct level of air humidity, in particular in new build properties.
  • Sharp and pointed items should not come into contact with the wood’s surface.
  • Please avoid using aggressive stain removing and cleaning agents – please use a normal dust cloth or a slightly moist cloth for cleaning.
  • It is essential that all dirt and spilled liquids (e.g. drinks) are removed immediately in order to prevent them from seeping into the wood.
  • Our furniture and its surfaces are designed for use. The wood is permanently protected, thus omitting the need for labour-intensive subsequent treatment.

Caring for painted designer furniture

Our furniture is particularly easy to care for thanks to its production and material. The motto here is definitely ‘less is more’. This means that you are spared all the labour-intensive effort of caring for your furniture. In order to ensure that you can enjoy veneered furniture of WM Wöstmann Markenmöbel for many years to come, we have compiled a list of useful care tips for you.

  • Stains or deposits such as, for example, nicotine can normally be removed with lukewarm water containing just a little non-abrasive liquid cleaner. With a soft, non-fluffing cloth all stains can be easily removed. Simply wipe dry thereafter and the furniture will have regained its radiance.
  • Severe staining: As a general rule, it is recommended that any cleaning should be done with a non-abrasive liquid cleaner which you can apply neat to a cloth (see above). The subsequent cleaning can be done using a moist cloth.
  • Coffee, tea, alcohol, etc.: No need to worry, this will not damage the surface. Simply wipe away immediately with a moist cloth.
  • Stains caused by intensive discolouration such as from ink, fruits or felt pens: Caution! Stains of this nature damage the surface. Please remove the stains immediately with a moist cloth.

Fabric care

General care and cleaning tips

Direct exposure to sources of light or the sun is to be avoided for all upholstery fabric! Generally speaking, any discolouration of the furniture attributable to colour-fast items of clothing (e.g. jeans) or staining due to use does not represent a justifiable reason for return. Like all textiles used on a daily basis, the furniture’s upholstery also requires regular care. Correct care and cleaning helps to protect the practical value of your upholstery fabrics. The appropriate cleaning agents can be bought from any specialist retailer. Establishing hygienic surroundings by ensuring sufficient ventilation helps to prevent the build-up of electrostatic charge. Please be aware: any damage attributable to insufficient or incorrect care is not covered by the statutory warranty.

Third party and/or customer fabrics

In order to avoid any mix-ups we kindly request that you state your consignment identifier when sending in fabrics. With regard to pattern fabrics we reserve the right, unless otherwise explicitly stated, to determine the grain direction ourselves. The fabric chosen by us concerns single-coloured fabrics with a width of 140 cm. A precise estimation of fabric requirements and price must be determined for fabrics with stripes, ornaments or patterns. We assume that the fabrics sent in by you or your supplier have been inspected, and can be processed by us without prior inspection; we shall not assume any liability. Please note: with certain chairs, the use of third-party and/or customer fabric is not possible for production-specific reasons.

Production of our seating and backrests

The – in part different levels of – padding found in our seating and backrests is desired. The padding adapts to body shapes and softens with continued use. Body weight is hereby decisive. The softening of the seat’s rigidity is normal and wholeheartedly desired (thus leading to an optimal distribution of pressure). The formation of creases can intensify because the upholstery material (fabric and leather) can stretch on account of load, body warmth and moisture, etc. The upholstery must also adapt to the increasingly soft padding. The upholstery should be stroked flat after use. Our tip: consider switching your ‘favourite chair’ from time to time; only by doing so can the chair’s uniform appearance be guaranteed.

Caring for leathers

General care and cleaning tips

Leather furniture must absolutely be kept away from direct sunlight and exposure to sources of light. Generally speaking, any discolouration of colour-fast textiles used for the upholstery, above all with regard to light leather colours, does not represent a justifiable reason for return. Any damage attributable to the furniture’s improper use, insufficient or incorrect care is not covered by the statutory warranty. The sooner marks and stains are removed, the greater the preserving effect for your furniture. Any marks and stains should be cleaned from the outermost area inwards. The correct selection of cloth and cleaning agent as well as the cleaning procedure are important, in order to ensure the successful removal of stains. Even when the stain remains extremely persistent, you must not apply solvent-based cleaning products such as, for example, turpentine, stain remover, petrol, floor wax or similar articles.

  • High quality leather

    Each of our crafted leather upholstery items has its own pure, unmistakable character. Leather is a natural product and is exposed to daily sources of stress and strain. This makes every item of leather a unique specimen. Natural characteristics such as insect bites, scarring, variations in the grain, branding and natural skin structures define the leather and transform your furniture into a unique and coveted specimen. These natural characteristics are the hallmark of the material’s authenticity and underline the genuine origin of our high-quality leather hides. No two items of leather are alike, but are unique in terms of the surface structure and colouring. Leather articles may display different tailoring cuts or seam patterns in comparison to fabric processing. Leather products typically emanate a certain smell when new.

     

  • Anilinleder

    Verwenden Sie nur Pflegemittel, die speziell für dieses bzw. offenporiges Leder geeignet sind und verzichten Sie auf Wachse und Fette. Überschütten Sie dieses Leder außerdem nicht mit Wasser sondern streben Sie in erster Linie immer eine trockene Reinigung an, wenn Sie oberflächlichen Schmutz entfernen möchten. Schützen Sie zudem das Anilinleder vor Ausbleichen.

    Anilinleder sind Glattleder ohne schützende Deck- und Farbschicht. Daher sind sie offenporig und anfälliger für Schmutz, Flüssigkeiten oder Ausbleichen durch Sonnenlicht. Ein z. B. auf der Oberfläche verriebener Wassertropfen dringt in das offenporige Leder ein und dunkelt die entsprechende Stelle. Für dieses Leder kommen in erster Linie nur tierische Rohhäute makelloser Qualität in Betracht. Sie weisen wenige Narben, Bisse oder Hornstöße auf und müssen daher kaum behandelt werden. Aufgrund dieser hochwertigen Auswahl sind Anilinleder im Regelfall auch etwas teurer. In der Hand fühlen sich Anilinleder wachsig an und sind von der Optik her matt. Die Vorteile von Anilinleder liegen in der natürlichen Struktur und dem weichen, sehr warmen Griff. Im Gegenzug ist die Pflege etwas aufwändiger als beispielsweise bei Semi-Anilinleder oder gedeckten pigmentierten Glattledern

  • Legere Polsterung

    Eine solche Polsterung wird modellspezifisch immer mal wieder angeboten. Viele Menschen möchten in ihrem Sessel oder auf ihrem Stuhl einsinken, um sich erholsam hineinkuscheln zu können. Dafur empfiehlt sich eine legere Polsterung, die bei Belastung im Vergleich zum klassischen Polsterstoff stärker nachgibt. Der Polsterbezug wird locker darüber gespannt, um die nötige Flexibilität zu gewährleisten. Durch das weiche Polster entstehen bewusst Falten im Stoff sowie Wellen beziehungsweise Kuhlen in der Polsterung. Dabei handelt es sich um eine gewollte, warentypische Eigenschaft, also um keinen Mangel.
    Unser Tipp: Für diese Polsterung empfehlen wir auf Grund optimaler Lederstärken unser geprägtes  Leder Hermes oder unser Anilinleder Cashmere.
