Care Instructions

Professional clean only.

Covers (both removable and fixed) should only be cleaned professionally by an upholstery cleaning specialist.

Colour variation may occur between cleaned and un-cleaned sections. When cleaning, please ensure all components are cleaned at the same time to avoid colour variation.

Vacuum or brush your upholstery weekly as accumulated dirt will accelerate wear and dull colours.

Avoid exposing your furniture to direct and prolonged periods of sunlight and heat sources as fading may occur.

Avoid sharp objects.

Spots and Spills; DO NOT RUB! Carefully soak up any spillage by gently blotting with a clean, dry absorbent cloth. Do not use a wet cloth.
