Wood is a natural material, and each product will have a unique variation in colour, grain and natural marks. Wood can expand and contract due to the environment's humidity and temperature. Avoid placing the furniture in areas with direct sunlight or heat, damp environments, or extreme temperature changes. This will limit movement in the wood and assist in preventing any warping & cracking over time. A durable oil sealant is applied to the furniture, which protects from light moisture, dirt and regular home use. To maintain the original finish, regularly dust with a soft cloth and occasionally wipe with a slightly damp cloth. All spills and stains can be prevented by immediately cleaning the spillage, wiping down the entire area with a damp cloth and using a soft cloth to dry. The use of abrasives, chemicals and any other household cleaning products is not recommended, nor is the further application of wax, oils or stains. Do not drag your wooden furniture, as this can damage the finish. Take care not to place hot surfaces directly onto the wood; use coasters or placements on the surface to protect from excessive heat and moisture exposure and prolong the piece's original finish.
Products are intended for interior use only unless specified otherwise. To retain the natural finish of the timber, we keep the number of protective coats to a minimum. Although this adds to the product's aesthetic appeal, highlighting the natural qualities of solid wood, it does mean that the finish is not impervious to damage and staining. After use, wipe down the wood surfaces with a slightly damp cloth to preserve and protect the wood coating. If the products get wet, you should dry them off as soon as possible. The wood will stain if exposed to wine, vinegar, and oils / oily food for an extended period. To avoid stains, wipe up spills directly with a slightly damp cloth and then dry. Spills should not be left overnight as they will sink in and mark. Placing hot items on the wood may result in damage or burning. We recommend that you use coasters and protect the tabletops from hot dishes. We do not recommend that you place indoor furniture outdoors. Avoid placing timber furniture items in full sun as exposure to the sun causes light surface cracks.
