Product Care

Leather

Leather is a living material that matures beautifully if treated properly. You should there- fore consider the following: Never place leather furniture closer than 20-30 cm to a radiator or in direct sunlight. Vacuum clean leather often with a soft brush and, when necessary, clean any exposed surfaces, such as armrests and headrests.
For stains that are water-soluble, dampen the area and dry using a paper towel.

If you should get a stain that cannot be removed, never experiment with strong solvents or chemicals. The problem could get worse, needing to be repaired: instead return to the store from which you purchased the furniture and ask for advice. If the staff cannot answer, ask them to contact the manufacturer for the correct advice.

For you to be able to take the best possible care of your leather furniture, RC has developed a water-based leather care programme with a cleaning (leather cleaner) and a protective (leather protection) component.

Shagreen & Parchment

The natural variation in skin color and thickness gives rise to natural variations during the dyeing process. Shagreen is a highly labor intensive material and is often described as the most luxurious material amongst furniture aficionados. Our furniture is made using the skills of the past and with a design aesthetic that dovetails beautifully with our wider collection of furniture.

Like leather, shagreen is simultaneously strong and delicate. It is very sensitive to water. Do not use water or a moist cloth to clean it. Refrain from using household cleaners such as Pledge or Windex. There is no waxing or other maintenance necessary. Over time you may notice separation between the skins or color shading which occurs due to normal temperature, humidity, and seasonal changes. This is a natural material that will change with time, but will continue to be magnificent as it gracefully ages. Like cow or others leathers the color is subject to slightly differences between stocks.

ENVIRONMENT
50° to 75° Fahrenheit.
40% to 65% Relative Humidity.
No extreme fluctuations in temperature and humidity No proximity to direct heat sources.
No proximity to direct sunlight.
No contact with moisture.

Cast Glass

Cast glass, like all other kind of glass, will greatly benefit from a program of routine maintenance.
While regular cleaning of the glass is the most obvious aspect of a main- tenance regimen, it is also important to inspect the condition of adjacent materials such as grouts, adhesives, fasteners and hardware.

A feather duster is ideal for regular day-to-day cleaning of glass.
You can use also a soft lint free cloth and a non-abrasive, non-caustic glass cleaner (Diluted Clear-Vu, water, mild alkaline soap. Do not use acidic or strong alkaline solutions): a microfiber cloth and a mild detergent are more than enough.

Cast Bronze

The vital step in bronze casting is creating moulds on the ground. The positive version of the model is used to create the shape of the object in the ground, which will be then become the cavity filled with molten bronze. The iron mould is placed over the templa- te. You the sprinkle earth over it to cover the entire mould. You then press the earth down using your hands and remove the extra layer. This new mould is separated from the template. The ground has taken the shape of the model. The moulds are then fit together before pouring in the melt. You can then proceed to pour the molten bronze into the moulds. After a few minutes you can open the moulds on the ground. The incandescent cast objects are extracted. The mould in the ground has carried out its function and, now ruined, it can be destroyed. The entire procedure must be repeated again for each new cast. Once the object has reached a workable temperature, the excess bronze is trimmed off, preparing it for the finishing touches. In addition to the perfect results obtained with the casting technique, RC adds artistic quality and origina- lity, creating objects of value.

Bronze is durable, yet soft.
Bronze has no protective coating.
Never use cleaner with abrasives, soft scrub, Clorox or Drano type products on this finish.
Do not allow water to dry on fixture.
We recommend using only a soft dry cloth for cleaning.
To polish the “Silver” finish, instead, you can use silver polish products.
