PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR PIECE OF FURNITURE AS LINBRASIL WILL NOT REPAIR OR REPLACE A PIECE THAT HAS BEEN DAMAGED OR POORLY MAINTAINED.
Like all organic materials solid wood is influenced by the environment and will likely change over time. Finished wood will slowly exchange water with the environment until it reaches an equilibrium. To minimize expansion and contraction movements due to moisture variation the air humidity should be kept between 40 and 50%.
Wood requires a period of maturation before attaining its permanent coloration, which will grow richer over the years. This natural maturing or darkening process will vary in speed and intensity depending on the species and the lighting conditions.
Use a dry, clean and soft piece of cloth until all the dust is wiped. If necessary, use a slightly damp cloth and then dry with a clean one.
Use a cloth damp with a diluted solution of water and neutral soap in order to remove the stain and then use a dry cloth to remove moisture.
Never use steel wool, solvents, turpentine or any oil/thinner based cleaners to clean or remove stains.
Age adds character and reflects how the leather furniture has been used during its lifetime. Over the years, leather adapts itself to the user and develops a personalized and individual look.
Dyes are absorbed differently throughout the hide and some color variation is normal and expected.
Use a white cotton cloth until all the dust is removed. When necessary, use a damp cloth and then a dry one. The movements should be longitudinal, not circular. Do not rub.
Use a cotton cloth damp with a diluted solution of water and neutral soap. After cleaning, remove the excess soap with a cloth damp with clean water. Let it dry naturally in the shade. Be sure that the piece is completely dry before using it.
clean it immediately with a soft cloth before the leather absorbs it and stains are formed. In order to remove greasy products, sprinkle some talc on the stain and wipe the excess with a dry and soft cloth after a few minutes.
After such procedures, the affected areas can be cleaned with a cloth damp with water and neutral soap. Wipe the soap excess with a cloth damp with clean water. Let it dry in the shade naturally.
Keep cane chairs and furniture away from extreme heat situations and areas with low humidity. These conditions could cause the cane to dry out and become brittle and break.
Cane has natural elastic properties, but eventually the caned seat will begin to sag with heavy or prolonged use. Cane seats that are not too badly stretched can be revived by turning the chair upside-down and applying a warm, wet cloth to the underside of the cane seat. Let the cloth and cane dry naturally overnight.
Remove the cloth and turn the chair upright and don’t let anyone sit on it for at least 48 hours. This treatment will dry and shrink the cane, tightening it up in the process, taking the pressure off the inside wooden edges.
