Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood containing natural tannins that will protect against bacterial growth. Combined with its light, elegant color and well-defined grains, this makes oak wood safe choice for high-quality interior.
The wood comes with no finish. If you choose not to treat it with soap or oil, use a suitable cleaning agent for wood.
As the wood is untreated, it may be affected by grease and colorants. For this reason, we recommend saturating the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. If you wish to use soap or oil, use a suitable product. Be aware that the wood will change color when applying soap or oil.
The Swedish Tärnsjö tannery has more than 140 years of experience in the art and craft of leather. To color their products, they use a millennium-old method of vegetable tanning which respects the environment and ensures the development of a unique patina over time. The leather used for this cushion is Tärnsjö’s thinnest and softest, and it has kept its natural appearance through aniline coloring where no color was added in the finishing process. It has a rich and shifting color texture and genuine leather feel.
Leather is a living material, and if exposed to direct sunlight, the color will darken gradually. Likewise, exposure to hot or dry air for a longer time can dry out the leather if it is not regularly conditioned.
Fiber Wadding is made of carded thin polyester fibres that contain air in between the fibres. The entrapped air creates the ability to insulate and to provide a soft comfort feeling in the cushion.
In order to keep the fibers and cushion full of air, be sure to shake the cushion occasionally.
