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.

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.

  • Smooth 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.
    Clean stains from the outer edge point to the inside. The correct choice of cloth and appropriate cleaning agent as well as the cleaning procedure are important for a successful stain removal. Even if the stain is so stubborn, you must not use solvent-based products such as Grab turpentine, stain remover, petrol, floor wax or the like.

  • Semi-aniline leather
    The semi-aniline leather is one of the smooth leathers where the hair side of the skin is also the top of the upholstery cover. There is no surface treatment with this leather. The semi-aniline leather lies between the very soft, pure aniline leather and the pigmented, covered leather. It is soft, has a good grip and also provides some protection against stains and liquids. Semi-aniline leathers are given a slight tint with pigment colors in addition to being colored. This makes them more durable and easy to clean without sacrificing softness and suppleness. Its natural origin is still recognizable, shows itself in irregular grain and small healed wounds.
    Use only care products that are especially suitable for this or open-pore leather and do not use waxes and fats. In addition, do not shower this leather with water, but always strive for dry cleaning if you want to remove superficial dirt. Also protect the semi-aniline leather from fading.

  • Aniline leather
    Aniline leather is smooth leather without a protective cover and color layer. Therefore, they are open-pored and more susceptible to dirt, liquids or fading from sunlight. A z. B. on the surface rubbed water drops penetrates the open-pore leather and darkens the corresponding area. Primarily animal raw hides of impeccable quality are considered for this leather. They have few scars, bites or horn blows and therefore hardly need to be treated. Because of this high quality selection, aniline leather is usually a little more expensive. Aniline leather feels waxy in the hand and is matt in appearance. The advantages of aniline leather are the natural structure and the soft, very warm handle. In return, the maintenance is a little more complex than, for example, semi-aniline leather or covered pigmented smooth leather.
    Use only care products that are especially suitable for this or open-pore leather and do not use waxes and fats. In addition, do not shower this leather with water, but always strive for dry cleaning if you want to remove superficial dirt. Also protect the semi-aniline leather from fading.

 

Production of our seating and backrests

It should also be noted here that: 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.

  • Casual upholstery
    Such upholstery is offered from time to time depending on the model. Many people want to sink into their armchair or chair so that they can snuggle up and relax. For this purpose, a casual upholstery is recommended, which yields more under load compared to the classic upholstery fabric. The upholstery cover is loosely stretched over it to ensure the necessary flexibility. The soft upholstery deliberately creates folds in the fabric and waves or hollows in the upholstery. This is a deliberate characteristic typical of the goods, so it is not a defect.
    Our tip: For this upholstery, we recommend our embossed smooth leather Hermes, our semi-aniline leather Vintage or our aniline leather Cashmere due to the optimal leather thickness.
