Leather With Oil-and-Wax Finished Wood
General Upholstery Care
Furniture with a combination of leather and oil-and-wax finished wood requires periodic conditioning to keep the wood and leather moisturized.
To maintain the wood, treat it annually with Room & Board Satin Wax. Apply with a clean, white cloth following the direction of the grain pattern. Using another cloth, buff to remove excess wax and achieve a smooth finish. Take care to avoid getting Satin Wax on the leather, as it can leave a permanent mark. Satin Wax can be purchased in our stores, online or by calling 800.301.9720.
To maintain the leather, use a leather conditioner when the leather feels dry. Take care to avoid getting leather conditioner on the oiled-and-waxed wood, as it can darken the wood.
Do not use water to remove oil-based stains on leather. Blot with a dry, clean, white cloth. The spot will dissipate into the leather over time.
For water-based spills on leather, use distilled water and a clean white cloth. You may also use leather cleaning products. Test in an inconspicuous area first.
Leather will naturally stretch with use, adding to its comfort and character.
For routine cleaning, dust the leather and wood with a clean, dry cloth.
To prevent fading, avoid placing your furniture in direct sunlight.
