Caring for Your Leather Furniture

Fine leather is soft and luxurious making it an ideal choice for upholstered furniture. With the right care, leather improves with age, providing many years of enjoyable use. Even the best leather, however, needs correct care and maintenance. To prolong your furniture’s appearance and comfort, follow these simple instructions and give your leather furniture the respect it deserves:


Only use our recommended leather cleaning products and always pay attention to the instructions and test on an inconspicuous area first. To remove stains and spillages act immediately. Dab with a clean absorbent cloth. For more difficult stains seek professional advice.


Vacuum your leather furniture carefully with a soft brush attachment to remove dust, crumbs etc. It is advisable to wipe clean regularly with a damp cloth only. Do not soak the leather as this will cause staining.


Avoid direct heat from fires, radiators, laptops or hot cups as this will mark or discolour the leather. Do not leave furniture in direct sunlight as this will also discolour your furniture.


Do not allow your furniture to be jumped on or people to sit on the arms of your sofas and chairs as this will damage/distort its structure.

Sharp Objects

Avoid sharp objects such as shoe buckles, belts and jewellery and do not allow domestic pets on your furniture as these will all scratch or damage the surface of your leather.


Regular plumping, turning and rotating of cushions should be carried out. This will maintain the appearance of your furniture, help with its performance and extend its durability.
