Wood

Care

Prevention
Wood has a tendency to shrink when exposed to dry air. It is therefore important to maintain a sufficient degree of humidity in your home. However, excess moisture will have the opposite effect: the wood of your furniture may then swell, causing drawers and doors to become misaligned. We strongly advise you to refrain from placing drinking glasses, vases or hot dishes directly on the wood and to use suitable coasters or trivets. If the wood becomes wet after contact with liquid, immediately wipe away any water marks to prevent the surface from becoming stained. Always place felt pads under any items that may scratch your furniture, such as decorative sculptures or vases. Likewise, avoid leaving decorative objects in the same place for too long to prevent sunlight from marking the location of the object by discolouring the surface around it.

Cleaning
When dusting your furniture, use a soft cloth and always wipe in the direction of the wood. To clean it, mix a spoonful of dish soap (preferably unscented) with a quart of lukewarm water and gently wash your furniture with a clean cloth. Rinse and dry, always rubbing in the direction of the wood.
