Maintenance of furniture

1. How do I maintain my furniture?
Lacquer completely handcrafted, the item you have purchased is the result of a long process of manufacture that can sometimes take up to three months to complete. Many layers of paint were applied to this item; therefore it is more hard wearing but still requires attention. To ensure that your lacquer keeps its natural glow for many years, we recommend that you follow the following maintenance tips: > Do not expose the paint continuously to sunlight > No candles > Wipe off the dust with a soft, dry or wet cloth > Wash in warm water with a mild washing up detergent. Rinse with warm water and dry immediately. If you do not want it to be too slippery, we encourage you to protect it (coasters, table mats, table settings).
