Care and maintenance of leather furniture
:

Leather is an organic, preserved material which does not produce its own fat. A piece of furniture that is in daily use is exposed to external stress. It is important to be aware of the following if the leather is to be protected as long as possible:
•Leather fades when exposed to direct sunlight.
•Leather is exposed daily to grease and dirt from hands, hair and clothing.
•Leather dries out from warm and dry air.

For these reasons, Ekornes recommends the following treatment of the furniture:
•Avoid direct sunlight. If the furniture is near a large window, use blinds or awnings.
•Avoid placing near radiators or fan heaters.
•Avoid drying. Air humidity which is comfortable for you is best for the leather.
•Vacuum the leather carefully to remove dust particles.
•Clean the leather regularly, using only an approved leather cleaner, to remove grease and dirt.

Ekornes recommends the following maintenance procedures:
•Start maintenance immediately.
•Apply "Leather Protection Cloth" which is shipped with the furniture to all surfaces, head rests, armrests, seats, etc. The cream saturates the leather and obstructs/ delays absorption of grease and perspiration.
•Leather cream (Stressless Leather Protection Cream is recommended) and may be applied to the furniture approximately 2-4 times a year (or when the leather is dry).

If you follow these simple directions, you will be able to enjoy your furniture for many years.


Stain removal:

How to remove a water stain:
Do not allow the stain to dry - remove it as quickly as possible! Apply a mild liquid skin cleaner on a sponge or cotton cloth to absorb all the liquid. Do not allow the leather to become saturated. If this should happen, dry it quickly and carefully i.e. with a hair drier. Do not rub.

How to remove a greasy stain:
Remove as much as possible of the stain with a paper napkin or a soft cotton cloth. Do not rub. Press the cloth against the stain to absorb the grease. Use mild soapy water (i.e. Sunlight) to remove the rest of the stain.

 

Furniture leather is neither self cleaning nor self-maintaining. Leather absorbs moisture. Spills can leave marks and must be dealt with immediately.

1. Leather has limited elasticity. This means that when stretched, it does not completely return to its original shape. Therefore, when leather furniture is used more or less intensively, the leather may become looser over time.
2. Leather like any other natural material can fade when exposed to direct sunlight over a long period of time. Royalin, being one of our more natural leathers, is being particularly sun sensitive. Therefore to minimise fading, avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight.
3. To maintain the surface properties of the leather, we recommend that you keep a minimum distance of 30cm between your furniture and any source of heat.
4. Leather is not resistant to animals. Do not allow pets on your leather furniture. Their claws may scratch the leather which can lead to an expensive repair. Their saliva is acidic and may also attack the leather finish.
5. In order to avoid stubborn stains protect your leather when using household chemicals e.g., (most) domestic detergents such as window cleaners, bleach and finger nail polish, nail polish remover, glue, shoe polish, paint, corrosive materials. Avoid domestic detergents and ALL products containing solvents and oils, as they may destroy your leather surface. Do not use any traditional household products to remove stubborn stains. Many of these are harsh and cannot be guaranteed safe for use on leather. Do not use a steamer to clean the leather.
6. Certain cosmetics and body care products contain solvents and oils. These products are not beneficial to leather, as they may weaken the leather finish over time. Avoid using your leather furniture with wet hair or with freshly applied hair care products or cosmetics. To avoid build-up of these products, please clean regularly the leather as described.
7. All leathers last longer and look and perform better when preventive maintenance is practiced.
8. Maintain surface appearance and texture by gently wiping your leather once a week with a clean dry cloth or vacuum with a soft brush. This will remove dust.

The leather of Stressless furniture is a natural material that comes from cattle hides: When the hide has gone through a tanning process and further processing to achieve the correct utilisation properties, it is called leather. One characteristic of hide is that it is marked by nature, vegetation and the care the animal has been subjected to. Cattle spend most of their lives outdoors and will therefore be marked by external influences like insect bites, tears, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, etc.

The following are some of the properties of leather that you should be aware of: Leather is a natural product and is a beautiful and lively material used in furniture making. Each hide is unique in its structure, appearance, nuance and size. Ekornes may use several hides when making your furniture. This, together with the leather’s play of colors and natural marks, makes each piece of furniture unique. In time, the leather will age and gain patina. It is important that you are aware of one thing: Although leather furniture can withstand a lot of wear and tear, its appearance will change with the years.
