How to keep your wood furniture in perfect condition

• Recommended humidity in the room: between 40% and 60%
• Ideal room temperature: 21°c during the day, not below 14°c at night.
• Avoid exposure to extreme conditions. don’t put your furniture near heating sources or in highly air-conditioned spaces.
• Although the furniture - apart from teak - is given a protective finish during production, it can still be susceptible to stains. we therefore recommend that any spilling is removed immediately to prevent staining.
• When cleaning the surface, always work in the direction of the wood grain.
• Like any natural material, oak will darken or yellow during its lifetime. Furthermore, teak and walnut will fade slightly when directly exposed to uV light (sunlight). therefore it is recommended to shield your furniture from direct sunlight and to move objects placed on the furniture from time to time, to prevent color differences.
• Use placemats to prevent hot pots, pans and cold glasses or bottles from leaving marks on the furniture.

Lighting

Fixtures should only require a light dusting to stay beautiful. If you find yourself needing to clean your fixture, use only the mildest soaps, softest cloths and gentle pressure.




Our maintenance instructions apply to furniture that is frequently used, paricularly dining, coffee and side tables. Every table has its own maintenance requirements, depending on lifestyle and needs of the user. You are free to choose which products you use. Industry West, however, cannot be held responsible for the results.

Leather

Know your leather! Some of our leather pieces have no additional sealant or insoluble dyes applied, as this would diminish the positive, natural characteristics of the leather and would make it feel coarse. As a result, aniline leather is more sensitive to stains and other external factors, such as temperature fluctuations and light. Direct exposure to sunlight—UV light—should therefore be avoided to prevent the leather from fading and drying out.

Cleaning & Maintenance

As with all 100% leather products, our sofas and chairs will show signs of wear over time, giving the items a unique patina. Accordingly, the leather should be treated to maintain its suppleness and reduce the absorption of dirt and oils, rather than to restore the leather’s color.

Clean with a slightly damp, colorfast rag, moistened with warm water and a small amount of mild soap. You can also use leather-specific cleaners and wipes. Whichever you are using, be sure to dry the leather thoroughly with a soft cloth.

FABRIC + VELVET UPHOLSTERY

The faster you’re able to soak up spills, the better. Paper towels are great for this, as are colorfast cloths. Absorb as much of the spill as possible, then spot clean as needed with a soft cloth dampened with warm water, and air dry. More stubborn stains may require professional cleaning.

For regular cleaning, we recommend gently vacuuming the fabric with your vacuum’s upholstery attachment. Velvet pieces should then be smoothed with a velvet brush in the direction of the pile. Heavily used pieces should be cleaned once a week. Direct exposure to sunlight should be avoided to prevent fading.


Wood

As is the case with upholstery spills, the faster you’re able to soak it up, the better. Paper towels are great for this, as are colorfast cloths. Absorb as much of the spill as possible, then wipe clean with a soft cloth, and air dry.

For regular cleaning, moisten a soft cloth (microfiber is great for this purpose) with warm water and mild soap, or a high-quality, natural wood cleaner. Work in the direction of the wood grain, then wipe dry. Avoid using abrasive soaps, all-purpose household cleaners and mixtures containing boiled linseed oil, turpentine or white vinegars.

Wood Upkeep Quick Tips

Be especially careful with hot items! Use coasters, trivets and placemats as protective barriers.

Direct exposure to sunlight and extreme temperatures should be avoided to prevent fading.

Prevent staining and keep wood looking rich by applying a conditioning oil every 4 to 6 months.


Marble

As marble is a product of nature, the veining pattern and intensity differs per type of marble and is unique for each item. Whether the stone is very mottled and veined or has very few veins is therefore beyond our control. While the marble should, of course, never be cracked or broken, our products may show small imperfections, such as marks and blemishes, that naturally developed during the formation of the marble stone.

Apply a color intensifier every 4 to 6 months to nourish, protect and maintain the natural beauty of the marble.

MARBLE CARE & MAINTENANCE

Marble is a porous stone and therefore easily absorbs liquids. The extent to which liquids can permeate marble differs per type and color of the stone. However, because marble is a porous stone and therefore easily absorbs liquids, a protective sealant should be applied before use to protect the marble against grease and dirt.

Since the coat of sealant will wear away over time, we recommend repeating this treatment as needed, according to sealant solution package instructions. Please note that marble should not be exposed to hot objects or acidic liquids. Use coasters and wipe up spills immediately.
