PROPER USAGE AND MAINTENANCE
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Skagerak’s Douglas Pine comes from Schwarzwald, a forested mountain range in the southern part of Germany. The straight and wide trunk of the Douglas Pine makes it suitable for custom-made, solid wood furniture
Cleaning and maintenance
Douglas Pine is a living material. As it comes untreated, it may react to grease, colorants, changes in air humidity, and water. We’ll therefore give you a sanding sponge for easy treatment in case of the surface has risen a bit before unpacking or happens to swell after cleaning. Use it with the following instructions:
1. Sand the surface in the direction of the grain to achieve the best result.
2. After sanding, clean the surface with a damp cloth and dry it off with a kitchen towel.
3. It may take 1-2 repetitions before all grains are cut down.
After unpacking your product, small amounts of resin extraction may occur from the wood. It can quickly be removed with a little denatured alcohol.
Also, minor cracks can appear over time due to changes in the living natural wood.
We recommend to saturate the wood with soap or a suitable furniture oil to make it more resistant. Be aware that the wood will change colour when applying soap or oil.
Remix 2 is made from mélange yarns, with each thread consisting of three different colours. The result is an irregular colour-play across the surface of the fabric. Woven from an elastic combination of 90% wool and 10% Nylon, Remix 2 is highly abrasion-resistant, lightfast and flame retardant. The wool gives it a sublime comfort due to its softness and ability to absorb/give off humidity.
Vacuum the upholstery regularly. Remember to use a proper attachment to avoid pilling.
The Remix 2 upholstery may only be dry-cleaned. However, most spots can be removed with lukewarm water and a mild wool detergent. We recommend to treat stains immediately. Also, it is a good idea to test on a small spot before beginning the cleaning process. Use only a small amount of detergent and dry up with an absorbent cloth after.
Cold foam is a form stable foam with high elastic properties, which makes it a good choice for cushions and pads. The foam provides a firm and comfortable support.
Fibre Wadding is used as an instrument to obtain the intended aesthetic expression as well as reaching the right comfort level in the cushions. Wadding is made of carded thin polyester fibres and is mainly used in Skagerak cushions as a secondary filling.
