Fabric Information

Fabric characteristics

Slight differences in texture, color, or appearance among fabrics and leathers may occur between production runs. This is normal, and not considered defective. We work closely with our manufacturing partners to insure each production run falls within our approved variance range. Fabrics are not guaranteed against wear, fading, shrinking, or color change due to direct sunlight.

General fabric care

Routine care - We recommend routine vacuuming or light brushing at least once or twice a month. This will prevent build-up of dust and grime which can damage the fabric over time.

Spot-cleaning stains - Blot spills immediately with a clean, absorbent white cloth. Blot from the outside to the middle of the affected area to prevent rings. Refer to the spot code below to determine the correct type of product to use. If a type of cleaner is advised, pretest a small, inconspicuous area before proceeding. Do not use too much water or solvent. Rub gently, do not scrub.


"S” cleaning code stands for “Solvent”. Use mild, water-free solvents and cleaning agents. This is the upholstery equivalent of a “dry clean only” garment. We recommend a professional upholstery cleaning service as water-free cleaning solvents may not be readily available and/or petroleum-based.

"W" cleaning code stands for 'Water based cleaner' and these are the easiest fabrics to clean. This is not the same as being machine washable, however. This code means that you can spot clean your fabric with a water-based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner.  We recommend Eco Touch Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner for an eco-friendly cleaner, or Blue Coral Upholstery Cleaner for a heavy-duty cleaner.

"WS" cleaning code, as you might expect, means that a combination of dry cleaning solvents and water-based cleaners may be used. These fabrics can be spot cleaned with upholstery shampoo, foam from a mild detergent, or a mild dry cleaning solvent. This is a case where the pre-test is especially important.


Overall fabric and slipcovers cleaning

For a thorough cleaning, we recommend using a professional in-home upholstery cleaning service. Annual cleaning is suggested, but this can vary depending on usage.

Close all zippers prior to washing. Always wash the entire slipcover for uniform results. We recommend air drying covers until slightly damp to reduce wrinkling. The dryer may cause shrinking. For ease put the slipcover back on when slightly damp and let it finish drying on the piece. 


Pilling is natural for many high quality upholstered fabrics and is not a fabric fault or defect. When pilling occurs, tit does not mean that the fabric is disintegrating and will leave a worn out area or not retain the proper structure in the fabric. It is recommended to use a fabric pilling comb or defuzzer to shave off the pills. Rarely does pilling re-occur after utilizing one of these methods.



Leather characteristics

Leather is a natural material so slight differences in texture, color, or appearance from hide to hide may occur. Leather is particularly subject to variations in color and markings, such as wrinkles, stretch marks, and healed scars may show. These characteristics make leather unique and are not considered defective. Natural color changes, exposure to extreme temperature changes and direct sunlight may cause color changes and/or surface damage. Over time, leather will naturally develop a softer feel, adding to its comfort and character.

General leather care

Minor scratches such as fingernail scratches or light scuffs may cause a slight mark without truly damaging the leather. Start by using a chamois or your fingers to gently buff minor scratches or scuffs on the surface. Sometimes this is enough to correct minor scuffs and scratches.



All of our seat cushions are constructed with high-quality foam. Down blend cushions will become softer and will puddle. This is normal and not a defect in construction.

When you receive your new sofa, be aware that the cushions will need some time to adjust. Cushions are made to fit your sofa, and are packed, shipped, and delivered to you before even being sat on. It could take a couple weeks to fully break in the cushions and soften up. Tight, attached seat and back cushions will naturally stretch and wrinkle with use.
