Care


WE FEEL A DEEP COMMITMENT TO THE ONGOING CARE OF OUR PRODUCTS, EVEN AFTER THEY HAVE LEFT OUR STUDIO FOR THEIR FINAL DESTINATION. THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS WILL HELP YOU TO PROPERLY CLEAN AND CARE FOR YOUR DUNN PIECES.  For more information about the qualities and unique characteristics of our materials and manufacturing processes, learn How It's DUNN.

Wood

Our wood finishes provide a durable protective coating to the surface and penetrate deep into the wood. Dirt, spills, and regular wear are best attended to as they happen. Use a dry or lightly dampened cotton cloth to clean. Never use solvent-based cleaners. Do not store in damp or extreme temperature environments. Never set wet objects or hot objects directly on wood surfaces.

Glass

Mild glass cleaners can be used on our glass; be sure to use formulations meant for transparent glass as those not meant for transparent glass can leave the surface foggy. Quickly follow the application of a cleaner by polishing with a dry cloth.

Metals, Patinas, & Powder Coatings

Our metal work is treated and sealed by one of our various finish options including patinas, clear coats, powder coating, or a light layer of protective wax.  Use a duster or dry, soft cloth to gently clean. Wet cleaning can leave streaks and particulate matter; however, wet cleaning will not hurt the piece if more aggressive cleaning is necessary. Never use solvent-based cleaners. Do NOT use metal cleaners on sealed metals as they can strip the surface treatments, coatings, or sealer.

Fabric Care

Pillow covers can be hand washed, cold water only. Machine dry on low temperature. We highly recommend using Synthrapol detergent. This product is a surfactant that suspends any excess dye that has not been flushed out in the water. The excess dye will not re-attach to other fibers as long as you add Synthrapol to your wash.

Leather

Use a duster or dry, soft cloth to gently clean. Our leathers are protected with a layer of wax, so a lightly damp cloth can also be used if more aggressive cleaning is necessary.
