- Avoid placing furniture directly in front of radiators, heat runs or wood burning stoves.
- For care of furniture finish, do not let it bake in the sun’s strong rays or keep it away from direct sun.
- Use a humidifier and/or air conditioner keeping your home’s relative humidity between 25 and 35 percent to help protect your furniture from expanding and/or contracting.
- Dust and polish with a clean soft cloth, and always wipe with the grain. Do not use any harsh chemicals to clean the table. Damp cloth will suffice.
- Always use coasters and hot pads for glasses and hot dishes. Wipe spills immediately, and be careful with solvents, perfume, alcohol and nail polish.
- Avoid dragging hardwood furniture when moving, always lift where possible.
- Use of natural furniture wax on top of the table top is recommended every year to keep the table looking as good as new.
- Everything that is in Nature is unique. The hardwood that makes up your furniture comes from trees such as mango sheesham acacia and old reclaimed wood. Each tree is unique, and each piece of wood looks different in grain and coloration.
- Over time, from growing and absorbing minerals and elements, trees are given distinctive markings such as knots and pattern variations. These markings create distinction and character and are what define your hardwood as truly one of a kind.
- For this reason, furniture that you see on display will not be exactly the same as the furniture you purchase and bring home.
- Hardwoods are made from natural materials and display a character that no synthetic material can duplicate.
- Each piece of hardwood is literally one of a kind and responds naturally to changes in your home’s temperature and humidity.
- Hardwood furniture does not take kindly to excessively dry air. If you live in a region that has low humidity, please be sure to increase your humidity levels by using humidifiers and/or air conditioners.
- When hardwood is exposed to dry air, the natural moisture in the wood is dried, forcing the wood to contract or shrink slightly. This even does not weaken or destabilize your furniture, however, small gaps may appear in areas such as table tops.
- Once the area’s humidity rises, these gaps will disappear as the moisture in the hardwood is regained. If it does not, filling the gaps with wood putty followed by natural furniture wax is recommended to prevent the crack from getting bigger.

- Solid hardwoods are like silk, linen, and leather; solid hardwoods are natural and long lasting.
- Your hardwood furniture will last a lifetime, and beyond.
