  • If necessary, use a lightly moistened soft cloth with clean lukewarm water and let air dry naturally. If water is used, clean the entire area where the spot occurred.
  • Do not use soap or soak the stain heavily with water. This may cause more damage than the stain itself.
  • If the stain persists, it is recommended that the leather be cleaned by a professional leather specialist to avoid any potential damage to the leather.

Wood

  • Dust regularly with a damp cloth. Wipe dry.
  • Irregularities such as sap wood, knots and uneven coloration should be expected in natural wood. These character marks are a part of the inherent beauty of natural woods.
  • Over time, air and daylight will change the color of natural wood. Occasionally rotate items placed on wood to allow a uniform color to develop.
  • To ensure even coloration of extension table leaves, expose them to the same light as your table. Once the leaves have reached mature coloration, they may be stored flat and top-down.
  • Fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels may cause wood to warp, swell or shrink. Keeping furniture doors closed will help minimize changes in this most commonly affected part of furniture.
  • Avoid contact with rubber bumpers and candle wax; they may react with the wood's finish and leave a stain.


Metal

  • Don’t use harsh chemicals or cleaning solutions.
  • Wipe spills immediately to avoid any potential rust.
