Care Instructions

Care for wood

Wood is a natural material with variations in grain patterns, knots, texture and colour. The product you receive may differ from the photos in these respects.
This is not a defect and adds to the character and natural beauty of every piece. Each of our wooden pieces is an investment which will last you well with the proper care.

  • Use protective mats while placing anything hot, cold or wet on the surface.
  • Use protective pads while placing anything sharp on the surface and avoid sliding items across the surface which could leave scratches.
  • Use felt pads while placing heavy items on wood.
  • Avoid using solvent based products and wipe down only with a damp cloth.
  • Avoid outdoor use, exposure to water or prolonged moisture.
  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight may fade the polish or colour of the wood.
  • We recommend a wax rub down once a year to maintain the natural sheen of wood.
