Soft upholstered furniture gathers dust and dirt just like cabinet furniture - the difference is you can’t always see it. Upholsteryshould be viewed in a similar way to clothing, i.e. it will require cleaning, ideally by a reputable cleaning company.
Pile fabrics generally have a softness and lustre. This is created by a thick pile of short erect threads on the surface of the fabric and is subject to random crushing and shading. The effect is also referred to as ‘watermarking, ‘pooling’, or ‘pile pressure’. This is generally considered an expression of the fabric which means the character of the furniture increases as it is used. It is possible to remove some crush marks by brushing and steaming but full removal should not be expected. These effects are also accentuated by lighting and use and does not affect the quality or durability of the fabric and is not a fault in the manufacture.
Certain non-colourfast clothing such as denim can stain fabric if it comes into regular contact. This is referred to as ‘dye transfer’ and is not a fault with the upholstery fabric.
Try to keep pets off the upholstery and be careful with sharp objects such as belt buckles, toys and watch straps snagging the fabric. If snags do occur, carefully cut off the loose ends with scissors or tuck back in - do not pull them under any circumstances. Reversible seat and back cushions should be turned regularly and plumped up to maintain their shape.
As a guide these cushions should be attended to at least once a week, but may require daily attention dependent upon typeof filling and usage.
Upholstery can be lightly vacuumed or gently brushed to remove dust, but take care if vacuuming delicate fringe and braid details. Strong sunlight can cause fabrics to fade. Manual recliners are often quite stiff to operate when new, but will become easier with use over time. Seat and back cushions may feel firmer than expected when new, but these will soften to the correct firmness, usually within the first 3 months, depending on use.
We are proud of our commitment to quality which is shared by all the famous home brands we represent.
