Product Care & Maintenance

At Copper & Tweed, we sell high-end furniture that are made from the highest quality materials. In order to maintain that quality and prolong the life of your furniture, we advise that you follow the care and maintenance guidelines provided by our manufacturers below:

Four Hands Furniture 

Performance Fabric
Performance fabrics' innovative solution works by surrounding each durable fiber in order to deter spills and resist stains. When accidents happen, which we all know they will, clean up is simple and worry free when treated immediately. For lighter spills, blot using a damp towel. For tougher messes, mix mild soap and water and clean with a towel. 

Top-Grain Leather
The rich color and feel of premium leather bring sophistication to any room. An array of markings in top-grain leather make a piece special. Natural imperfections can darken or lighten depending on the color, to dramatic effect, highlighting the unique movement and character of each individual hide. Buff regularly with a clean, dry cloth. Do not use oils or leather cleaner and avoid ammonia or other harsh cleaning products. Address spills immediately by wiping with a damp, soft cloth. Avoid harsh, direct sunlight and avoid direct contact between sharp objects and the leather. 

Metals 
The naturally elegant luster of metals brings trend-forward sophistication to streamlined styles, ushering edge, interest and warmth to any space it graces. Address spills immediately by wiping with a dry, soft cloth. Dust regularly with a soft, damp cloth, followed by a dry one. Avoid use of cleaning products with acid, vinegar, lemon, and ammonia, as abrasive ingredients can damage surface. Metal surfaces are not scratch or heat-resistant and may scuff or stain without proper care. 

Marble & Natural Stone 
Quarried directly from the earth, marble and natural stone vary in veining, texture, and color. Whether polished, sandblasted or hand-carved, each is valued for its unique pattern and natural beauty. Spills on your marble and natural stone should be addressed immediately with a dry, soft cloth. Natural stone is a porous material, and although it has been sealed, spills should be blotted promptly to minimize staining. Use a soft, slightly damp cloth to dust or spot-clean as needed and wipe dry. Avoid using abrasive cleaners, chemical solvents, strong detergents, furniture polish, and cleaners with bleach. Use trivets, coasters, placemats, and adhesive felt pads to help prevent scratches. 

Lava Stone
Made entirely from natural composites, lavastone is uniquely crafted from a mix of raw lava dust and a dune sand-based resin binder. A texturally porous material that can absorb moisture, lava stone surfaces are hand-polished and specially sealed with a protective polyurethane wax coating, for use indoors or out.

Industrial Concrete
Rich in character and dramatically beautiful, concrete pieces add a sophisticated, urban edge to any environment. To care for your concrete pieces, regularly dust with a dry, soft cloth. Do not use furniture polish or ammonia-based cleaning products. Read more about care here.

Reclaimed Woods 
Each piece is hand-crafted from reclaimed and recycled woods with unique characteristics. Natural splits and knots, weathering and wear from years of exposure, and mars left from previous use create a rich palette of rustic textures and colors. The one-of-a-kind character of reclaimed wood is thoughtfully preserved in each design. Crafted with classic joinery, each piece is hand-finished in sophisticated neutral tones to enhance natural patinas as well as protect surfaces for everyday use. Read more about care here

Yukas 
Natural plantation yukas deliver innate warmth to minimalist styling. Characterized by the alluring union of organic graining with mid-century forms, each piece is finished in ashy espresso tones and accentuated with slender legs of bronzed iron. Like many looks that deliver large doses of visual drama, proper care should be administered during assembly, and continued for long-term product maintenance. Read more about care here

Outdoor Furniture
Materials from shaped concrete to cast aluminum, wicker, natural teak, and braided wire extend modern style to any space. These standout materials and finishes mix and match effortlessly, bringing an eclectic, organic feel to spaces both indoors and out. To care for your outdoor furniture, cover or store indoors during inclement weather and when not in use to prolong the lifetime of your furniture. Use a proper outdoor cover (not included with furniture) that allows for adequate ventilation without trapping moisture. Do not leave uncovered in direct sunlight and dust regularly with a clean, dry cloth. Avoid ammonia-based cleaners or other chemicals. Sunbrella high-performance cushion covers are made of 100% solution dyed acrylic fabric and an open cell foam designed specifically for outdoor usage. Seat covers fade resistant and easily cleaned with soap and water. 

Care for your Outdoor Cushion Covering
Iron fabric on lowest heat setting to release wrinkles that may form while in packaging. Machine wash on gentle cycle and then tumble dry on low heat, spot-cleaning any visible markings by hand before machine washing. Do not over-dry. Dry cleaning is not recommended for Olefin-based fabrics. To prolong life of fabric, we recommend removing outdoor cushions from direct sunlight and other elements when not in use. 

Eucalyptus
A smart, stylish solution for outdoor furniture, eucalyptus is a durable, time-tested material that reveals a natural patina over time. When exposed to the elements, eucalyptus develops an attractive silvery-grey hue, which speaks to the material's organic nature and does not affect its integrity. Hairline cracking and joint expansion are to be expected in all eucalyptus furniture. Aging timelines are dependent upon weather variables, climate and exposure. Read more about care here.

Teak
A smart, stylish solution for outdoor furniture, teak is a durable, time-tested material that revelas a natural patina over time. When exposed to the elements, teak develops an attractive silvery-grey hue, which speaks to the material's organic nature and does not affect its integrity. Hairline cracking, peeling and joint expansion is to be expected in all teak furniture. Aging timelines are dependent upon weather variables, climate and exposure. Read more about care here.
