Keep Your Furniture Looking New
- Once you've bought a special piece, follow these suggestions for keeping it in its original condition.
- Keep your furniture out of direct sunlight, which can fade both fabric and wood.
- Ordinary household dust can dull a wood finish and create wear and tear on fibers. Dust regularly, and vacuum upholstery often to avoid dust build-up.
- Prevent damage to surfaces by using coasters under glasses; make sure that tabletop accessories have felt applied underneath. Don't place newspapers on wooden surfaces because the ink can transfer to the finish.
