Product Care

General Care:

Properly cared for furniture wears longer and will bring you many years of comfort and enjoyment. Simple directions for the regular weekly care of your furniture include vacuuming or brushing your upholstery with a soft bristle brush and wiping of all leather and solid components with a clean damp non-abrasive cloth. These procedures will help avoid the gradual build up of dirt, grime, and oils, which are transferred from clothing and skin.

Please note that some materials used in the production of your furniture will take 1-2 weeks of regular use to break in and assume the intended look and feel for that particular piece. Use the additional guidelines below to better care for your new Rossetti furniture.

Avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight, in close proximity to windows, or under skylights. Direct exposure to light can discolor fabrics, leathers, and finishes alike.

Keep furniture away from any heating/cooling source and areas prone to temperature and/or humidity shifts. These conditions can cause components to shrink and expand and though the structural integrity of your furniture is not compromised, you might notice adjustments in solid wood components, in and around joints, the lining up of separate surfaces, and the action of doors and drawers

Immediately collect and dry liquids and spills from any surface of your furniture.

Cleaning, treating, or repair of any surface, regardless of material, should always be tested on a small hidden area in order to avoid any unwanted results from the material(s) and/or method used for the process.

Upholstery Care Guidelines:

Turn, rotate, and fluff reversible cushions and pillows weekly to help maintain the original look and feel of your upholstered furniture.

Clean only with water based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner and do not saturate with liquid. Avoid the use of solvents or chemical detergents. Pile fabrics may require brushing to restore appearance. Professional dry cleaning is recommended for anything beyond suggested routine care.

Do not remove cushion covers even if they have zippers.

Leather Care Guidelines:

The leather used in the production of your furniture is natural hide material and like your skin, may exhibit variances in shading, color, and texture. Any such variations are natural attributes of this material distinguishing it from manmade imitations and are not considered defects.

Clean only with a solution of lukewarm water and mild soap. Never use abrasive materials or aggressive substances such as cleaning solvents, stain removers, turpentine, ammonia water, or any other type of chemical solution on your leather. Do not place hot objects directly on or near the leather. Professional cleaning is recommended for anything beyond suggested routine care.

Turn, rotate, and fluff reversible cushions and pillows weekly to help maintain the original look and feel of your upholstered furniture.

The application of a leather protection cream/leather conditioner will improve the leather's resistance to staining and soiling, however, such formulas can add noticeable luster and gloss to the finish of the leather. Make sure the product is tested on a small hidden area to avoid unwanted results. Products not meant for genuine leather may damage the leather's finish or surface.

Marble Care Guidelines:

The marble used in the production of your furniture is natural mineral material and will exhibit variances in shading, color, and pattern. Any such variations are natural attributes of this material distinguishing it from manmade imitations and are not considered defects. Clean only with a solution of lukewarm water and mild soap. Never use abrasive materials or aggressive substances such as cleaning solvents, stain removers, turpentine, ammonia water, or any other type of chemical solution on your leather. Do not place hot objects directly on the marble. Professional care is recommended for anything beyond suggested routine care.

Wood Care Guidelines:

All structural components of your furniture are produced with kiln dried hard woods and manufactured hard woods. These natural materials may exhibit variances in grain and texture and will sometimes have visible knots. These variations are normal characteristics of all lumber species and are not considered defects.

In order to keep the natural wood finish tones originally applied to your furniture, use only a clean damp non-abrasive cloth to keep surfaces clean and free from build up of dirt and residue. Never leave a wood surface damp and always use non-abrasive coasters and place mats to avoid condensation marks and scuffs. Do not place hot objects directly on or near wood surfaces. Professional care is recommended for anything beyond suggested routine care.

Use of conditioning oils or oil-based cleaners can result in a glossy grease effect, which can seem patchy and uneven as naturally absorbed by the wood.

The use of wax or polish can result in the build up of residue in and around structural gaps, carvings, routings, and joints of your furniture.

Non-structural decorative components may be produced from synthetic materials and are to be cared for in the same manner as natural wood.

Home Remedies For Minor Scratches and Nicks On Wood:

Always test method and materials on a small hidden area in order to avoid any unwanted results.

Fill scratches with a closely color matched wood touch up pen available in most paint or hardware stores. Closely matched shoe polish, felt marker, or crayon can also be used. The standard shadings, contrasts, and distress marks used on some of our items will facilitate the blending colors and material.

Professional repair work is recommended for extensive repairs on wood and any repairs on leather or marble. In most cases, these materials can be restored to original or near original condition by qualified technicians allowing you to enjoy the use of your fine furniture for years even after considerable damage.
