clean & care instructions
Clean weekly with a vacuum cleaner or soft brush, followed by a damp cloth, in a well-ventilated space. For leather surfaces, wipe first with a wet cloth with mild soap and follow immediately with a dry cloth. For liquid or food spills, clean immediately to avoid stains. Remove the spill from the fabric surface with a soft cloth or paper towel/tissue and, in case of food, it is recommended to use a vacuum cleaner to remove all residue. In case of non-greasy liquids, clean with a soft cloth or sponge wet with warm water, in movements towards the center of the spill. For greasy liquids or foods, it is recommended to use warm water and neutral soap or send the piece to an upholstery expert cleaner. Upholstered chairs and stools with lacquered or microtextured backs should be cleaned with a dry cloth and, in case of deeper cleaning, wipe first with a wet cloth with mild soap and follow immediately with a dry cloth. Stainless steel or painted iron legs should be cleaned with a wet cloth with mild soap. Wipe dry with a soft cloth to prevent stains. Make sure that each piece is completely dry before it is used again. Do not use alcohol, bleach, concentrated soap, oil, vinegar, detergent, solvents, or abrasives such as powder cleansers and scrub sponges.

Clean frequently with a duster to remove dust and solid residues. It is recommended to wipe first with a wet cloth and follow with a dry cloth. For greasy stains or deeper cleaning, use water and mild soap. When moving the pieces, avoid dragging them. We recommend that pieces such as shelves and sideboards are emptied before they are moved. Hold the pieces as close to the base as possible. For dining tables, move by holding the legs or the base pedestal. DO NOT use products containing wax, silicone, solvents, alcohol, or abrasives such as powder cleansers and scrub sponges.
Our porcelain collection – Deslize, Sílaba and Luni – should be washed preferably with neutral detergent. Everyday experience shows us it can be put in the dishwasher as long as they are carefully put in and taken out. They can also be used in the microwave, but not in conventional ovens, which can damage the materials in some cases. And they cannot be placed directly over fire on the stove.
Tops can be cleaned with any glass cleaner, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. However, only clean the external surface of colored glass parts.
Concrete parts can be cleaned with a soft sponge soaked in water and mild soap, followed wiping with a wet cloth or sponge. We do not recommend using abrasive scrubs, brushes, steel wool, or powder cleansers. Our concrete parts have been waterproofed. It is recommended to re-apply a waterproofer to concrete parts every 1 or 2 years, depending on the level of weather exposure to which the parts are subjected. The waterproofer we use is VEDACIT’s Acqüella Stone, available in Brazilian hardware stores. If this brand is not available in your area, choose a similar waterproofer for stone and concrete and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Stainless steel, painted iron, or copper pieces should be cleaned with a wet cloth with mild soap. Wipe dry with a soft cloth to prevent stains. DO NOT use products containing solvents, chlorine, or abrasives such as powder cleaners, scrub sponges, and steel wool.
Clean frequently with a duster to remove dust and solid residues. It is recommended to wipe first with a wet cloth and follow with a dry cloth. To clean smears, use alcohol or glass cleaner.
