How to maintain your furniture

With regular care, your furniture can last longer and stay at its optimum condition at all times. Here’s a guide to help you along.

Genuine leather contains natural characteristics that unmistakably distinguish it from imitation products. Individual hides or skins may display small marks such as healed scars, insect bites and growth wrinkles and will often show slight variations in surface colour and grain texture. Characteristics differ for each leather type. So rest assured that the above will not affect the quality of the leather.

Our Care Tips:
• Try to maintain at least a distance of three feet (approx. one metre) between your furniture and heating sources.

• Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight. All materials will fade over time under direct sunlight, especially aniline leather.

• Do not allow your pets onto your leather sofa. Pets with sharp claws can cause scratches. Pets’ saliva is also very harmful to leather.

• Never use harsh chemicals or paint around your leather sofa. Keep materials like fingernail polish, nail polish remover, glue and household cleaners away.

• Dust your leather sofa weekly, using a lightly-dampened soft cloth with leather soft cleaner. You may also use a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner.

• Fully clean your leather sofa with a leather soft cleaner and leather protection cream at least every six months to remove dirt as well as accumulated body oils and perspiration.


Fabrics containing fibers such as acrylic, nylon, or polyester have a tendency to pill, that is, when loose, fuzzy ends of fiber to ball up on the fabric surface. Pilling can be triggered by abrasion from daily use and climatic conditions. Even specific clothing types (e.g. fleecy tracksuits) can transfer pills from the clothing to the furniture fabric.

Our Care Tips:
Stand by a safety razor of a fuzz-off pilling machine or a battery-operated pilling tool available at most haberdashery stores. They will help remove pilling and in no way affect the quality of the fabric.

Also, keep fabric furniture out of direct sunlight. The ultraviolet rays of the sun can fade the colour of the fabric.


HR (High Resilience) foam is a type of high-density foam used in seat cushions of many good quality sofas. HR foam makes an ideal choice if your sofa will be sat on for long periods of time. It has excellent resilience to flattening, which helps maintain the sofa’s shape and support much longer than other types of foam.

The blocks of polyuethane foam we use have different densities. The density of each block is guaranteed by a certificate of chemical analysis. It is also tested periodically via “stress tests” to check its resistance to wear and tear.

Our Care Tips:
• Foam padding
During the first three months of use, foam padding tends to soften before it stabilises permanently. This may create slight folds of the covering, which is completely normal.

Pocket springs are individual springs manufactured from high-tensile steel, wrapped in their own pockets of fabric. They were originally designed for use in high-end mattresses but today, the use of pocket springs is becoming more and more popular. Pocket springs can be found in both removable and non-removable seat cushions.

The fabric pocket used to cover each spring allows the springs to slide up and down independently. So unlike other spring systems, they don’t work together as a unit. This makes pocket springs an ideal choice if users of the same sofas vary greatly in weight. As pocket springs are free to move and work flexibly, they prevent any effect that the heavier sitter will have on the person next to him. Pocket springs can help keep your sofa looking great too. Every time you get up from your sofa, all springs will expand. This helps maintain the shape of your seat cushion. This also means the sofa will enjoy consistent support and last longer.

Fibre is a popular choice for sofa filling as it is very versatile. It is used in the seat cushions, arm pads and backs of sofas. It is also the filling of choice for most scatter cushions.

Sofas that use fibre in the back cushions, arm pads and scatter cushions tend to soft and malleable, requiring a lot of maintenance to keep them looking their best. Daily turning and plumping of the cushions is needed to maintain comfort and to prevent them from going flat.

Feathers are synonymous with feeling of lightness, warmth, softness and pleasure. The remarkable softness of the sterilised and controlled feather makes it a first-rate material for furnishing pieces. On top of that, industrial feather treatment processes enhance the already excellent properties of this material, making the feather padding perfect for all uses in creating unparallelled softness, compressibility and resistance to fire.


Our webbing suspension system is recognised by the Furniture Industry for extreme resilience and high-comfort support. These vital characteristics have helped made our furniture seat cushions remarkably more durable.

Our webbing suspension system is made from continuous beads of latex rubber. These latex beads are wrapped with threads of polypropylene fibre to protect from oxidation. These materials are designed to provide noiseless support and produce high elasticity with incredible strength and durability.

Laboratory testing shows that our webbing suspension system does not sag even after 50,000 cycles of repeated stretching. So rest well and rest assured.

Please check in-store for selected models with this suspension system.

Zig-zag springs are a good alternative to a webbing suspension system, providing good support and comfort. These springs are heavy-gauge steel springs that have been heat-formed into continuous “S” shapes. They are affixed to the sofa frame, supporting the seats for better and longer-lasting comfort.

Our Care Tips:
• Do not jump or throw yourself onto the sofa

• Do not sit on the arms or back of the sofa

• Do not move the sofa by pushing it. The correct way to shift a sofa is by lifting it.


Each of our sofas is built on a made-to-measure wooden structure, specially tailored to making each model unique. We only use seasoned timbers to ensure the frame’s stability over time. Elastic straps, patented for the furniture industry, are also stretched over the frames for additional durability.
