Direct sunlight can cause furniture to fade. To help limit colour fading and fabric deterioration from sunlight exposure, protect by drawing curtains or blinds. Do not place your furniture too close to radiators, fireplaces or other sources of heat.
Operating Furniture Safely
Upholstery with moving mechanisms should be operated with care. Standing on an ottoman is not safe, sitting or standing on an armrest or an ottoman is also unsafe and never recommended. Do not allow children to play or near mechanized furniture or to operate mechanisms.
Unless the furniture is fitted with castors, it is not recommended to slide or drag it. By sliding or dragging your furniture, breakage can occur. Never move the sofa or chair by dragging or lifting by the armrests. The correct way to move the sofa is by lifting if from the base.
Avoiding Accidental Cover Damage
While accidents can occur, planning ahead can avoid most costly mishaps. Pets, toys, buckles, belts, rings, studs on jeans and other objects can snag or tear even the strongest upholstery fabrics or damage or deeply mark leathers. If this occurs, make sure not to pull the snag. Simply cut it off with sharp scissors.
