CARE ADVICE FOR YOUR NEW FURNITURE

To help you get the best from your new furniture and prolong the life of it, simply read the following care advice.

Initial tips:

  1. Carefully read your Manufacturer’s care instructions (if provided).
  2. Do not place your furniture near direct heat or air conditioning vents.
  3. Avoid placing solid wooden furniture in places with under floor heating.
  4. Always lift your furniture, do not push or drag it.
  5. Never place hot dishes, plates or cups onto any table top or cabinet (use table mats or stone surfaces as protection).
  6. Avoid dragging crockery across the wood surface.
  7. Do not place heavy items on the surface without protection.
  8. Do not rock backwards or stand on dining chairs.
  9. Check stability of chairs and tables on a regularly basis. Occasionally there might be a need to tighten bolts and other fixings.
