TECHNICAL INFORMATION & CARE GUIDE

Due to the handmade nature of our furniture, all dimensions are within a 3cm tolerance. All dimensions are taken at the highest, widest and deepest points.

The sizes listed here are our standard dimensions, however, should you wish your sofa to fit a specific space we can tailor the width to suit your requirements. We can proportionately increase or decrease the width of our sofas in units of an inch, however this does not apply to sofa beds.

All of our designs are supplied with a choice of seat cushion interiors; fibre fill, foam, foam/fibre blend or feather. Our back cushions are fibre and our scatter cushions are feather filled. Scatter cushions are available to order in any of our fabrics, enabling you to customise your furniture further. It is also possible to order back and scatter cushions with a fibre or feather filling if required. This must be specified at time of order. Our commitment to your comfort and support is paramount.

We offer a Customer's Own Material service for those who wish to create their own bespoke piece. In this instance we are happy to advise regarding fabric suitability for upholstered furniture.

For details on pricing with regard to any of our bespoke services, please contact your local David Gundry stockist.

A large selection of the products in our brochure are available to view at our showroom in Long Eaton. Should you wish to see a specific product, please telephone in advance to obtain details of current display models.

The showroom is open Monday to Thursday, between the hours of 9am-12pm/1-4pm, and Friday 9-11am. Please contact us to make an appointment.

CLEANING / REGULAR MAINTENANCE

Dust settles on your upholstery and can not only spoil the look and colour of the fabric, but can also accelerate wear and tear, as it contains abrasive and gritty particles, which can cut and break down fibres.

Care should be taken not to use a high pressure vacuum cleaner when cleaning feather filled cushions. There is the possibility that feathers could be pulled through the cover.

SUNLIGHT

Do protect your upholstery from prolonged exposure to sunlight as this may cause fading and in some excessive cases may cause the fabric to deteriorate. On sunny days draw the curtains or pull down the blind. Avoid placing the furniture close to a source of direct heat such as a fire or radiator. Velvets especially can be permanently damaged by leaning against a radiator.

SPOT CLEANING

Accidents happen and all stains and spills should be dealt with quickly (with the exception of mud, which should be left to dry and then lightly brushed off). Soak up any spills as soon as possible using a clean white cloth or white kitchen paper.

SPECIALIST CLEANING - FIXED COVER FURNITURE

We would recommend that the cleaning of your David Gundry furniture is taken care of by a specialist cleaning company. It is important that cleaning is carried out before dirt or soiling becomes ingrained. We would advise that sofas and chairs are cleaned in their entirety. Do not take cushions to be dry cleaned separately as this could result in a mismatch of colours.

Servicemaster is a specialist cleaning company and can be contacted on www.servicemasterclean.co.uk. They will be able to direct you to their closest representative.

WOODEN FEET

Please appreciate that all of our wooden products are made from high quality timber, typically displaying small colour variations as part of its’ natural charm and character. A choice of leg designs and colours are available in the following finishes: light oak, weathered oak, distressed walnut, black and wenge. We can also match to alternative wood finishes if preferred. A £40 charge per piece of furniture is applied for this service.

CASTORS

We recommend that you check the condition of your castor feet on a regular basis. This action is suggested on the basis that a damaged or faulty castor could dirty or damage both wood and carpeted floors.

CUSHION INTERIOR CARE

We select only the highest grades of filling materials for our cushions. However, after constant use, it may be found that your cushion will show signs of compression.

For this reason, it is recommended that the cushions are "plumped" on a regular basis in order to maintain loft and appearance. It is also recommended that cushions are turned and alternated on a regular basis in order to minimize wear and tear.
