Caring for Leather Furniture

It is best to keep leather furniture in a climate controlled environment. Extreme changes in temperature can cause leather to shrink and split while humidity can cause mildew to form on natural hides. Direct sunlight exposure may also damage leather products.

  • Blot spills immediately with a clean, soft cloth. If necessary, gently wipe away the spill using a clean cloth and lukewarm water.
  • Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight as color may fade over time when placed in direct sunlight.
  • Avoid using cleaning products that contain solvents or oils. Harsh chemicals and cleaning agents can damage leather furniture.
  • Try to maintain at least two feet between your furniture and any heat source. Prolonged exposure to heat sources or radiators will cause leather to crack.
  • Watch out for ink stains from markers and crayons as these will be difficult to remove.
  • In the event that your furniture is stained or otherwise damaged during use, we recommend that you consult with a professional before attempting to make any repairs yourself.

Caring for Metal Furniture

Indoor furniture is not recommended for outdoor use. You can extend the life of your purchase by keeping it indoors, away from direct sources of heat.

Caring for Upholstered Furniture
