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
Weathered Linen

With an authentically distressed look and feel, Weathered Linen is our thickest, heaviest twill fabric at 750gsm. It's a 100% pure linen, pigment dyed in earthy, organic tones for a faded, lived in look. The linen is sand washed multiple times to achieve its vintage aesthetic. A beautiful example of humble luxury.

Hemp Linen

Hemp can renew up to three times a year, making it one of the planet's most sustainable natural materials. Our Hemp Linen is made using organic hemp and hand washed for an extremely soft hand feel similar to wool. The fabric has a natural texture with a tight twill and beautifully weighted drape. It has a Martindale rub count of 24,000.

Caring for Weathered Linen and Hemp Linen
  • The fabric must be cleaned by a professional furniture cleaning service using a solvent- based cleaning agent (often also indicated as "dry clean only").
  • Do not use water.
  • Do not spot treat stains with a water-free solvent or dry-cleaning product.
  • Use solvent cleaners in a well-ventilated room, away from open flames.
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
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 Velvet

Cotton Velvet is our most supreme velvet with a 100% cotton pile. The cotton comes from a mill that is part of the Better Cotton Initiative, the world's leading cotton sustainability initiative. It has a plush and opulent hand feel with a matt finish, classic dusky appearance, and exquisitely rich depth of colour. Naturally soft and tactile, Cotton Velvet has a short pile, although longer than our Revival Velvet. Crushing and creasing of the pile can be expected with use as part of the intrinsic character of the velvet. It has a Martindale rub count of 30,000.
