CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

Timber

Teak items are resistant to the elements.

Teak will naturally age to an attractive silver grey colour over the years.

If you prefer to keep the original color of the teak, we recommended to treat the item with

Teak oil twice a year.

 

Recycled Oak and other timbers can be buffed with a furniture wax and a soft dry cloth.

After applying the wax let it penetrate for 20 minutes. Use a clean soft dry cloth to buff up

the item.  This will give it a light sheen and will also provide protection.

For best results it is important to always go in the direction of the timber when applying the

wax and buffing afterwards.

 

Aluminium

Each piece has been made by individual craftsmen, using aluminium according to Villa

Maison’s exact design and quality standards.

As polishing is entirely done by hand, slight imperfections may occur. They enhance the

product and do not affect its durability or structure.

 It is important to note that aluminium is a very soft metal, so please make sure assembly

instructions are followed carefully.  Do not force the construction, as this will damage the

thread.

 

Aluminium items can be buffed up with a soft dry cloth to ensure years of pleasure. A little

Silvo on a soft cloth may also be applied.  Aluminum is not suitable for outdoor use.

 

Brass

Brass items can be buffed up with a soft dry cloth to ensure years of pleasure. A little Brasso

on a soft cloth may also be applied.  Brass is not suitable for outdoor use.

 

Nickel

Nickel finished items can be buffed up with a soft dry cloth to ensure years of pleasure.  

Nickel is not suitable for outdoor use.

 

Industrial metal

This metal is best maintained by dusting the item regularly. Never apply water or moist

cloth as this may cause rust.

 

Leather

Periodically you may treat your leather with a leather protector or moisturize with a

leather conditioner.  Avoid direct sunlight as it may cause the leather to fade or dry out.
