Our products are handcrafted from real wood and hence we are unable to offer a laser-precise replica of the products seen in our boutique or 3D visualizations. However the products you will receive will be carefully crafted replicas. Where the texture of the wood pieces, intarsia or marquetry are involved all efforts will be made to reproduce the display product, however please note that this wood art has a natural variance and two pieces of wood are never identical, even more so when they form part of the composition. We take pride in our traditional skills and techniques for wood craftsmanship, which adds to the exceptional beauty and individuality of each of our products. If you require a higher level of uniformity or finish for your products, please discuss possible options and your requirements with us before confirming your order.

We reserve the right to stop selling, or make changes to the specification of the items shown on our website, catalogues, or other sales literature at any time.

The materials used for our furniture are of the highest quality and careful maintenance of each piece should continue to keep its appearance over many decades.

Most furniture is finished with a hard-wearing lacquer to give protection. However during the life of your furniture some settling of the timbers and veneers and some changes of colour and shade or fading may occur. This is a natural process and will vary depending on the wood type and environmental conditions.

All timbers can alter slightly when exposed to light, where some tend to darken and some may lighten. Consequently, the position of ornaments or other objects left on surfaces should be changed regularly to avoid patches becoming noticeable. This is especially important during the first year when wood is settling and adapting to the environment.

Avoid extreme changes in room humidity, and never place a piece of furniture directly next to a heat source, through wind or in direct sunlight. It is important that the environment is maintained at an ambient humidity level between 45– 65% and at a temperature between 20–25°C. Otherwise, extreme timber movement may result.

Use protective pads to prevent the furniture surface from hot and cold items, for example, cups of tea or icy cocktails. Remove any spillages of liquid from the furniture immediately. Failure to do so may leave a permanent mark on the furniture.

Do not apply any force with sharp objects on the furniture as this may leave dents and wear marks. Avoid rubbing the furniture with swift circular or angular motions as this may leave scratches in the furniture lacquer.

For best cleaning results, furniture can be revitalized by simple gentle strokes with a soft dry duster, if it is warm this will produce a better finish. To remove any stubborn marks use a slightly dampened cloth on the marked area and then finish off with a soft dry cloth. Never use polishes, solvents or abrasive cleaners as these can damage the lacquer.
