Our vintage collection is made from 100% solid plantation mahogany and has undergone a finishing process to recreate good old fashioned honest sun bleached scrubbed furniture, as part of the hand aging process you're going to see deliberate aging marks, uneven surfaces, differing grain colours and levels of bleaching. With all wood it still lives on and we suggest not placing it in direct sunlight or next to heat sources such as radiators. In dry centrally heated houses it will expand and contract and may cause splits and warping to the timber especially on the tops of tables just like the originals we copied have done over the decades.
Following purchase aftercare -
This product is made from natural wood and had been hand scrubbed to produce an authentic honest vintage look it therefore has no sealant on the surface.
If you accidently spill something on the surface please use 1/3 bleach 1/3 water and 1/3 ecover detergent and very gently scrub the surface with the grain and leave to dry over scrubbing may reveal the redder tones of the solid wood beneath. For everyday use Wipe clean with damp cloth, this range is trying to reproduce historic furniture and thus in natural wood you will get surface scratches and marks from everyday use we hope you will love these the marks you create as a historic record of good honest furniture use. Any splits can be filled with matching colour bees wax. Excess heat, sunlight and dryness in an unventilated room can cause the wood to split so avoid placing your furniture close to heat sources use mats and coasters when placing hot drinks onto the surface to avoid ring marks.
