Wood is a living material that both absorbs and exudes moisture in time with the changing seasons. As a result of this natural process, small cracks can appear on the wood’s surface. The formation of these cracks does not affect the furniture’s durability, but do apply a little wood oil or stain now and then to prevent the cracks from deepening.

Here are some care instructions that will increase the life span of your furniture and help to keep it looking like new.

General tips
  • Protect furniture from damp and wet conditions. Place it under cover or protect it with our formfitting rain covers if there is a risk of rain. Lean table leafs so that water doesn’t lie on top and be absorbed into the surface.
  • Wash and dry furniture regularly using a mild detergent.
  • Winter storage: wash furniture thoroughly, let it dry and store it over winter in a cool, dry place.
