Timber is a natural material with grain detail, colour and finishes that are subject to variation. An inherent quality of timber is for movement to occur within the material
- especially in warmer climates and in environments where temperatures change frequently from hot to cold, ie. in front of air- conditioning units. In light of this, we ask that you carefully select the placement of these products and be aware that environmental factors will have an effect on your furniture.To ensure longevity of the product, we recommend keeping it out of direct/reflective sunlight, as well as away from contact with moisture/liquid. The furniture should be placed where it can be protected from outdoor elements.
- Regularly wipe down with a soft, dry cloth (preferably microfibre) to remove dust and dirt.
- Do not wet the timber surface or leave spills unattended.
- If a spill occurs, immediately wipe the liquid up with a cloth. Then use a separate dry cloth to remove any excess moisture.
- Take care when placing unglazed ceramics on the surface as they may leave scratches.
- Do not place hot and cold items directly on the surface. We recommend using coasters and trivets to avoid any permanent marks on the timber.
- Do not use any cleaners or polishes on the surface as they may cause permanent damage.
When it comes to durable and low-maintenance home furnishings, leather has continuously proved to be the best material to invest in.
Leather is a flexible and strong material, making it resistant to tears and punctures. Our leather sofas and armchairs are made of either full-grain or top-grain leather, therefore so
they are not only durable but will also age well.
Our leather products are made from protected, or finished, leather. These leathers may be labelled semi-aniline
, aniline plus pigment
leather. Protected leather is more durable, stain-resistant and uniform in appearance than pure aniline
or unprotected leather.
For longevity of the product we recommend:
- Remove dirt with a vacuum using the brush attachment on the piece of furniture.
- Add a few drops of mild, non-detergent soap to distilled water to create a gentle cleaning solution which can be used on the piece. We recommend wiping the product down by moistening a microfiber cloth with the solution.
- Test a hidden spot with the wet cloth to make sure there’s no discoloration from the soap and water.
- Working from top to bottom when wiping the furniture down.
- Dampen another cloth with plain distilled water and wipe the furniture again.
- Dry with a clean towel.
A natural stone formed under high heat and pressure in hot springs and limestone caves. The material is characterised by beautiful small hollows and channels on its surface which represent the time it has weathered and the stories it has to tell.
Created with a dedication to craftsmanship, the BREATH collection’s simplistic design and innate retro tones make every piece an artwork that stands the test of time.
The finer fibers in our cotton absorb dye with a deep, long-lasting penetration. The result is a product that retains color better than regular cottons. Supima products keep their brilliance wash after wash, giving you many years of use.
For the longevity of the product and to reduce environmental impact, we recommend:
- Wash at low temperature
- Do not bleach or use softeners
- Line dry instead of tumble dry
- Iron at low temperature
- Do not dry clean
- Use eco-friendly detergents
Moving your furniture
Please take care when moving your piece. Do not push or drag the furniture along ground as this may cause the stone to chip and break off
. Make sure that there are at least two people lifting and placing the piece down gently when moving it around.
Dropping the piece may result in the stone cracking, chipping and falling off. This could lead to further structural damage to the timber carcass.
Please avoid contact with substances that contain an acidic component (such as citric foods/drinks or some sticky tapes) as they may cause etching on the surface of the piece. Avoid direct contact with high pigment liquids, foods and objects that may cause colour transfer.
Natural material comes with its own unique variation and organic flaws. This includes colour and textural variation and should be expected.
Slight imperfections are a part of the handmade process using this natural material, this is what makes each piece unique and should be expected.
