Furniture Care and Maintenance

Your furniture will continue to improve and wear exceptionally well throughout the years with very little effort and its character will be enhanced by the passage of time. Products that are made from wood, they do need to be treated with a certain amount of care.

Wood Characteristics

Wood is a naturally occurring product; part of its beauty is that no two pieces can be the same. The depth and shade of colours along with the grain pattern vary from item to item. It is important to understand these unique properties; these properties should not be mistaken for flaws. Knots are a natural part of real wood furniture; they do not affect performance and add interest to any piece of furniture. All timber will display signs of movement from season to season because of the changes in temperature and humidity.

Which type of polish should I use?

Furniture should be occasionally polished with a good quality beeswax polish. Polish containing silicone should not be used.
