In order to maintain the appearance and nature of your products we recommend that you follow the care instructions below. ALWAYS ENSURE THAT LAMPS ARE DISCONNECTED FROM A LIVE ELECTRICAL SOURCE BEFORE CLEANING. All lamps must be picked up from beneath the base as their weight cannot be supported by holding the lamp holder. Damage will occur if table lamps are not handled in this manner.
CERAMIC AND GLASS
Ceramic and Glass should be dusted with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Wipe with a damp cloth if necessary. Mirror glass should be treated with proprietary glass cleaner on mirror glass area ONLY. Antiqued mirror glass should be dusted lightly and abrasive cleaning products avoided.
METAL AND PLATED PRODUCTS
(Brass, Bronze, Nickel and Polished Brass) Nickel, Polished Brass and Silver Plate require light use of a proprietary silver cloth periodically. Our Bronze and Specialist Brass finishes are subject to uneven patination if handled incorrectly. White gloves (included with your product) should be used for installation and subsequent handling. For ongoing maintenance dust with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. These finishes must be kept free from moisture or condensation. Please note this requirement when installing lights into an overly humid or heavily air-conditioned space. Changing temperatures can cause these finishes to discolour.

Painted and Gilded Decorative finishes should be dusted with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. No cleaning products should be used.
Perspex should be dusted with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. A damp cloth can be used if required, followed by buffing with a dry cloth. No cleaning products should be used. SLATE Slate should require very little maintenance. Marks and spills should be wiped with a damp cloth and white spirit can be used for more stubborn stains.

Matt and Gloss surfaces should be cleaned using a dry, micro- fibre cleaning cloth. Protective glass tops can be provided upon request at an additional cost. GLOSS Marks should be removed with silicone free furniture polish. No abrasive cleaners or hard wax should be used. MATT Matt surfaces may burnish if rubbed with an abrasive material or cleaner.

Faux Bronze is particularly susceptible to absorbing grease and should be handled accordingly.
Dust frequently using a soft, lint-free absorbent cloth. Always polish with the grain of the wood, not against it. Avoid wax and silicone polishes, as they may be harmful to the finish. Clean up spills immediately. Use a blotting action rather than a wiping action.
