Our top tips:

Regular maintenance and prompt attention to cleaning spills or stains will significantly prolong the life and appearance of your furniture. Avoid moisture and liquids being left on any furniture surface for a period of time as it will cause damage regardless of the material and finish. Avoid abrasive or harsh chemical cleaners. Do not expose to bleach, acids or silicone based products. Do not expose to heat sources and keep out of direct sunlight. 

Use furniture pads or felt protectors under heavy objects or furniture legs to prevent scratches on floors.

Follow assembly instructions carefully and periodically check for loose screws or fittings that may need tightening. Always refer to the manufacturer's care instructions or any specific recommendations provided for your furniture, as care methods can vary based on the materials used in construction. Regular maintenance and proper care can significantly prolong the life and beauty of your furniture.
