A Glance on Wood Material

Most of VIVERE furniture consists of wood material. Wood is undeniably a staple material in furniture manufacturing. Not only is wood everlasting, but it is timeless as well.

Here are some reasons why we use wood as our furniture main material :

  • Gorgeous natural look. Wood has beautiful pattern and lines. It is naturally beautiful and aesthetically pleasing. It explains why the finishing is made to show the beauty as well.
  • It's warm and cozy. The natural beauty of the wood will add warmth and character to any room.
  • Outstanding décor. Adding a piece of wood furniture to a room will completely change its look and feel. Wood furniture offers elegance, charm and sophistication to any room.
  • Ease of maintenance. Wood furniture is nearly effortless to maintain. Simply wipe the surface on a regular basis to keep it looking great.
  • Strength and durability. Wood is already naturally strong. Such durability will be reliable even on high duties as well. It means you do not need replacement very soon.
  • Eco friendly. The material is not damaging the environment like plastic. The tree grows fast, and you do not have to worry about environment side effect from it.
  • Wood provides local green jobs. Because wood furniture is fabricated locally, choosing wood means supporting local jobs for carpenters, craftspeople and factory worker.
  • Good value & worthy investment. Wood is more valuable than other material used in furniture manufacturing. The price can be high compare to other furniture materials. However, it will make long lasting and smart investment. Wood’s natural grain guarantees that each piece of furniture is unique. You get the beauty, quality, and comfort all at once.

Wood is a product of nature and each wood species is unique and will contain variations in color, grain, density, and other characteristics that are common and naturally occurring in wood.

Wood is an organic material and will need to breathe. Slight movement and re-adjustment due to climatic variations is considered normal.

Your VIVERE furniture, like all woodwork, is subject to expansion and contraction with humidity changes. Our products mostly are intended for use in an indoor environment. We advise not to expose these products to strong sunlight or to extreme and sudden variations in humidity. Moderating the temperature and humidity swings around your furniture will help to preserve its finish as well as its overall structure.


Furniture Care & Cleaning Instruction

Regardless of the type and style of furniture you have, it needs regular cleaning, care, and maintenance. If you care for your home furniture correctly, it rewards you with many years of use.

We have prepared the following manual outlining tips and instructions on how to care for your furniture purchase.


Wood & Veener Care

Your new VIVERE product requires a minimum maintenance but here are some tips to keep your wood/veneer furniture looking good for years to come.

  • Avoid direct sunlight or excessive temperature
  • Sun bleaching may occur when wood is exposed to sunlight, incandescent or fluorescent lighting. This may cause darker finishes to lighten and lighter finishes may darken. Arrange your furniture so that it does not sit near, air conditioner units, heat registers, radiators or direct light sources.
  • Wipe clean with a soft, clean, dry, lint-free cloth
  • Avoid harsh fabrics, paper towels or disposable dusting towels as they may scratch the surface.
  • Standard stained surface may be cleaned with a soft, damp, lint- free cloth and dried immediately with another soft, dry cloth.
  • To avoid creating swirl marks, always wipe with long straight strokes rather than circular motions.
  • To protect top finishing / furniture surface, we're suggested to use tablecloth, coasters, or pads.
  • Use protective mats under hot dishes (Never place very hot items such as sauce pan or baking dish on tabletop even with a hot pad)
  • Always use a protective pad when writing with a ballpoint pen on the furniture surface.
  • Lift object rather than dragging them over the furniture surface.
  • Blot spills immediately with a clean cloth (do not wipe).
  • Avoid placing plastic or rubber materials on wood surface for continuous time as it may leaves rubber or plastic mark on the surface.
  • Avoid the use of chemicals and household cleaners as they may damage the finish.

Rattan Care

Rattan is an attractive, lightweight, and durable material for furniture. It’s also eco-friendly, as the plants are fast-growing and plentiful. Following these steps will keep your rattan clean and in good repair.

  • It is crucial that natural rattan and wicker furniture be placed indoors.
  • Avoid direct sunlight or water spray.
  • To clean dust, wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth.
  • Vacuum with a soft bristle brush to remove surface .
  • Use a soft damp cloth to remove the stubborn stain. Wipe up spills with a damp cloth as quickly as possible before they harden. Don't rub dirt or spills.
  • Avoid the use of chemicals and household cleaners as they may damage the finish.

Brass Care

Brass is a great metal – it doesn’t corrode but it needs extra effort to maintain than chrome. It has a bit of life to it and it’s also associated with quality.

  • Most metals including brass are not intended for outdoor use or areas with high exposure to salty air.
  • Brass component is already top coated with PU surface to minimize oxidation.
  • To clean, wipe with a soft, clean, damp cloth. Avoid use of any polishes, chemical/ household cleaners or abrasives as they may harm the finish or inflict stain or rust.
  • Do not brush with hard or stringy cloth to clean metal part. It will scratch brass component and reduce PU coating surface.

Stainless Steel Care

Stainless steel is durable material, stands up to many chemicals and resists corrosion.

  • All grades and finishes of stainless steel may in fact stain. In order to achieve maximum corrosion resistance, it is important that the surface of the stainless steel must be kept clean.
  • To prevent rust, we recommend cleaning frequently with mild, soapy water and a soft cotton cloth.
  • Any discoloration or corrosion should be removed as soon as possible, to avoid permanent discoloration.
  • For tougher discoloration, use a stainless steel cleaner with a Scotch-BriteTM pad. Rinse surface thoroughly with water.
  • Commercial stainless steel cleaners may be used, but if uses incorrectly, it may cause discoloration and corrosion on the surface of the stainless steel. Cleaners with strong acid solutions should never be permitted to come into contact with stainless steel.
  • In environments where there is salt, chlorine, presence of air pollution, wet and humid, would increase the speed of corrosion, and thus, a more frequent cleaning is strongly recommended.

Stone / Marble Care

Stone / Marble is a beautiful surface, but because it is quite soft and porous, marble can easily be stained, scratched, and chipped if left unprotected.

  • Regular cleanings should be as gentle as possible. Wipe clean with a soft, clean, dry, lint-free cloth.
  • Standard stained surface may be cleaned with a soft, damp, lint- free cloth and dried immediately with another soft, dry cloth.
  • Blot spills up immediately and rinse with a clean, soft, damp cloth.
  • Wash the marble periodically with a cloth dampened with warm water, and, if necessary, a bit of mild dishwashing liquid. Remove the soap with another damp cloth.
  • To protect furniture surface, we're suggested to use tablecloth, coasters, or pads. To prevent ring marks, place coasters or trivets under glasses and dishes.
  • Use protective mats under hot dishes (never place very hot items such as sauce pan or baking dish on tabletop even with a hot pad)
  • Always use a protective pad when writing with a ballpoint pen on the furniture surface.
  • Lift object rather than dragging them over the furniture surface to avoid scratches.
  • Avoid placing plastic or rubber materials on wood surface for continuous time as it may leaves rubber or plastic mark on the surface.
  • Avoid the use of chemicals and household cleaners as they may damage the finish.

Textile Care
  • To prevent fading, keep fabric out of direct sunlight and heat.
  • Vacuum or brush with soft brush regularly.
  • Clean all pieces simultaneously to prevent any variances in color.
  • Fluff cushions periodically to maintain original fullness.
  • Avoid placing printed materials on leather as ink stains are difficult to remove.
  • Prevent spills from turning into stains by blotting them immediately with a clean, dry, white cloth / towel / sponge. Always blot from the outer edge of a spill inward to help avoid a stain ring from forming.
  • Use clear, cool water to help blot up resistant spills. Never use hot water, which tends to set stains. Let air dry naturally.
  • Professional upholstery cleaning is always recommended for tough stains.

Leather Care

Leather is a durable and practical covering and because it is a natural product, it needs little or no care during normal use.

However, we recommend the following:

  • Protect from exposure to direct sunlight as exposure over time will cause fading.
  • Dust is the enemy of leather upholstery, causing it to wear excessively and crack. Remove dust by wiping away with a dry, clean, soft cloth regularly, and vacuum using the appropriate attachments.
  • For spills or contact with food/liquids, blot excess liquid immediately with a clean absorbent cloth and sponge. If needed, use a mild solution of pure (pH neutral) warm water with ivory soap. Dry with a clean cloth and let air dry naturally.
  • Do not dry with hair dryers, heaters, etc.
  • For food stains, oils or grease, wipe excess liquids with a clean, dry cloth and leave it alone. The spot should dissipate into the leather over time. Never apply water or try to wash the soap to an oil based stain.
  • Always try the cleaning method in a hidden area first to be sure it is colorfast.
  • Do not use the following product on upholstery leather : soaps, shoe polish, furniture polish, wax, window cleaner, silicone, saddle soap, cleaning solvent, vents, oils, varnish, abrasive cleaners, or any cleaning product not designed specifically for your leather.
  • Clean and condition your leather regularly.
  • Pay special attention to wear areas such as seats, arm rests and headrests which come in direct contact with skin or hair.
  • Avoid placing printed materials on leather as ink stains are difficult to remove.
  • Keep any sharp or abrasive objects such as shoes, belt buckles, zipper etc away from leather.
