Posted by John Moller on

At the International Design Center, we understand that investing in Ekornes Stressless furniture means bringing home not just comfort and style, but a piece of design innovation that stands the test of time. To help you maintain the pristine condition of your furniture, here are comprehensive care tips and insights into preserving the timeless elegance and functionality of your Ekornes pieces.

Understanding Your Stressless Furniture

Ekornes Stressless Furniture is renowned for its quality craftsmanship, using top-tier materials like fine leather, robust woods, and meticulous metalwork. Each material contributes to the furniture's luxury feel but requires specific care to maintain its unique qualities.

Daily and Weekly Care Tips

For daily maintenance, a quick wipe with a soft, dry cloth can remove dust from leather surfaces and prevent build-up. Weekly, it's advisable to use a vacuum with a soft brush attachment to gently clean the crevices and surfaces of your furniture, ensuring that even the smallest particles are removed.

Deep Cleaning Techniques

When it comes to deep cleaning your leather Stressless furniture, use a mild leather cleaner that is suitable for your specific type of leather. Apply the cleaner with a soft cloth in a circular motion, avoiding excessive rubbing. Follow up with a leather conditioner to keep the material supple and prevent cracks. For fabric upholsteries, use upholstery cleaners designed for the specific fabric type, always testing on a small inconspicuous area first.

Addressing Spills and Stains

Immediate action is crucial for spills. Blot—don’t rub—spills gently with a clean, dry, and soft cloth. For leather, if a stain persists, use a specialized leather stain remover that matches your leather type. For fabrics, consult care labels for specific cleaning codes that indicate safe cleaning products.

Caring for Wooden and Metal Components

Wooden bases and metal accents on your Stressless furniture should be cleaned with products appropriate for each material. Use wood cleaners for wooden parts to enhance their shine and protect the finish. For metal components, regular wiping with a damp cloth followed by a dry cloth will maintain the luster without harsh chemicals.

Seasonal Care and Storage

If you live in a climate with varying humidity, it's important to keep leather furniture away from direct heat sources like radiators or air vents to prevent drying and cracking. During off-seasons or if you need to store your furniture, keep it in a cool, dry place and cover it with a breathable cloth to avoid dust accumulation and moisture buildup.

Professional Care and Services

For a thorough cleaning or if your furniture needs more than a simple home-care routine, seeking professional cleaning services annually can preserve its look and feel. Professionals can also provide specific advice tailored to your environment and usage patterns.

Avoiding Common Care Mistakes

Avoid using harsh chemicals, detergents, or abrasive cleaning tools on your Stressless furniture, as these can damage the materials. Also, refrain from placing your furniture in direct sunlight, as UV rays can fade leather and fabrics over time.

Longevity and Replacement

Regular care and maintenance will significantly extend the life of your Ekornes Stressless furniture. However, if you notice signs of irreversible wear or damage, consider contacting us for repair options or explore replacement parts like cushions or armrests.
