Like all natural products, veneered wood surfaces may vary slightly in grain texture and color. Because each piece of furniture is unique, minor variations between pieces can be expected.
General Care & Cleaning:
- Exposure to sunlight should be avoided.
- Remove any spilled liquids immediately with a blotting rather than a wiping action.
- Do not drag objects across finished surfaces.
- For chips, scratches or unusual damage, professional repair is recommended.
- Avoid exposing the surface to extreme heat, cold or humidity.
- Place a desk pad and coasters to protect the surface from dents, scratches, and moisture from hot or cold liquids.
- When glass top is used, silicone bumpers or felt pads must be placed between glass and wood surface.
- To clean, simply dust and wipe the surface frequently with a clean, damp and soft cloth in the direction of the grain.

General Care & Cleaning:
- Frequent dusting using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth is the best way to clean textured and reclaimed pieces. Wiping the pieces may remove some fiber and expose the raw wood underneath. Make sure the cloth is consistently turned in on itself to make sure dirt is removed, not just moved around.
