Finishes and general maintenance

Pennines Linen

With its beautifully soft hand feel, Pennines linen is made from 79% viscose, 12% cotton and 9% linen, creating a fabric that is thick, hardwearing, and incredibly tactile against the skin.

Caring for Pennines Linen:
  • Spot clean with upholstery shampoo, foam from a mild detergent, or mild dry-cleaning solvent. Do not saturate with liquid
  • Cushion covers may be removed and dry cleaned but please note this may alter the colour shade in comparison to the rest of the upholstery
  • Furniture with fixed covers: For extensive cleaning we recommend you consult a professional upholstery cleaner
  • Furniture with slipcovers: The slipcover should be removed and professionally dry-cleaned
Revival Velvet

With a silky touch and intense rich colour, Revival Velvet is a modern renaissance of this classic, opulent fabric. Lavishly soft against the skin, Revival Velvet has an elegant short pile with a subtle, glamorous sheen. Made from 100% polyester.

Caring for Revival Velvet:
  • Spot clean using a mild, water-free solvent or dry cleaning product and follow the manufacturer's directions. Water-based cleaning products may create water stains
  • Always test the cleaning product on an inconspicuous area first
  • A very soft brush (such as a baby's hairbrush) can be used to brush the nap of the upholstery while cleaning. Brush in the direction of the nap
  • Note, the colour of the upholstery may appear to change depending on the direction of the nap and the angle the product is viewed from
  • For more extensive cleaning consult a professional upholstery cleaner
Faded & Degraded

The Faded & Degraded velvet collection takes inspiring vintage motifs and collides them with bold abstract patterns for unique, richly layered designs that daringly merge the classic world with vivid contemporary flair. The layers of pattern are printed onto soft velvet, with designs individually prepared to fit each fabric panel in the chair's cutting patterns. Faded & Degraded is made from 100% polyester.

  • Professional cleaning is recommended
Acid Jungle

A heady mix of vivid colour and equally intense darkness dance together in this sumptuously exotic velvet. Lush greens entwine with vibrant florals in a blaze of luminescence, while a dramatic black backdrop creates depth and contrast. Made from 100% polyester.

  • Professional cleaning is recommended
Venetian Velvet

An exceptionally opulent and tactile velvet traditionally reserved for garments. Venetian Velvet blends 80% rayon with 20% silk to give a short pile with a luxurious sheen, creating the most beautiful drape on upholstery. Old world glamour is recast for today in a selection of vibrant colours.

Caring for Venetian Velvet:
  • Dry cleaning only as the pile, colour and shape can be ruined if washed
  • Never iron velvet. This will cause the fabric to flatten permanently
Heroes Garden

This wild and whimsical velvet is a celebration of Hieronymus Bosch's famed "Garden of Earthly Delights", which he painted in 1490-1510. Known for his radical creativity and imaginative iconography, Dutch painter Bosche typically depicted virtue and sin in the most curiosity-sparking of ways. This velvet homage to his renowned masterpiece is both bold and beautiful, making it an intriguing conversation piece. Made from 100% polyester.

  • Professional cleaning is recommended
  • Cotton cushion covers may be spot cleaned using a sponge dipped in warm water and mild liquid detergent. Air dry. Do not saturate the cushion with water
  • Moleskin cushion covers may be spot cleaned using a mild, water-free solvent. Water-based cleaning products may create water stains
  • Do not machine wash. Remove cushion cover and dry clean
