Keeping your wood and veneer beautiful

Wood Care Guide

Think of wood and veneer care like a hair trim. With a quick trip to the salon and a little TLC your hair is healthier, better looking, and easier to maintain. On the other hand, what happens if you skip your appointment? Does your hair get split ends? Maybe it becomes a bit lacklustre?

More than 98% of our wooden designs are still made in Denmark within our own factory. This ensures quality builds that are meant to last. We want your solid wood and premium-quality veneer to remain as stunning as the day you bought them. With just a little love and attention, your designs can remain forever beautiful.

Wood furniture

BoConcept furniture uses high quality wood veneer for our surfaces. The wood veneer is produced from plantation grown trees, located primarily in North America.

Wood and veneer are natural materials and therefore will display natural variations in their grain and colour. Their surfaces are affected by light and over time their character and colour will change.

Before assembly, please check your furniture for any defects or errors. Also check that all hardware boxes have been supplied and that all parts are included in the packaging according to the assembly instructions.

Wood and veneer are affected by light

For the first 6-8 weeks, when the item is first absorbing the surrounding light, keep the surfaces clear of any objects to avoid permanent marks and circles. At first, new furniture will also need time to absorb light before it will match the tone of your existing furniture

Be Mindful

Although our wooden designs need no initial treatment, please be mindful of where you place them in relation to air conditioners and heat sources in your home. These harsh conditions can cause unwanted deformation, discoloration, cracking and/or warping.

Keep it clean

Meet microfibre, your furniture’s new best friend. This softer cloth is ideal for wiping dust and dirt off, without the worry of damage. For days when dusting just won’t do, soak the cloth in lukewarm water with a small amount of pH neutral detergent and give the surface a quick wipe before finishing with a dry cloth.

Protect in style

You want to protect the surface from hot and/or moist objects but resist any urge to use a magazine or newspaper as a barrier. The ink on these can easily stain or act as an adhesive under heat. Instead, opt for a set of coasters or placemats. Not only will they protect your furniture, but they are perfect for incorporating a bit of personality into your decor.

Wood and veneer are very sensitive to liquids. Wipe up spilled liquids immediately.
