Painted furniture - High gloss


High gloss is a process where the wood is first primed and then color is applied. A transparent topcoat is finally applied which gives the chair a glossy and shiny surface.

Normal cleaning

A high gloss service is susceptible to fingerprints which can easily leave marks on the surface. It is recommended to wipe the chair daily with a dry, microfiber cloth to preserve the chair’s beautiful and glossy surface. For light soiling, use a damp cloth soaked in clean water. Never use harsh or abrasive cleaners as they can damage and, in the worst case, ruin the paint. It is not recommended to use sharp tools for cleaning as they can cause damage and scratches to the painted surface.

Special consideration

Although the painted surface is very strong, it cannot be avoided that, with daily use, minor marks and scratches can eventually occur on the surface. Armrests and the outer edges of the exposed furniture are especially vulnerable. Pay close attention to e.g., wristwatches, buttons and buckles on clothes.

Marks and small scratches can be repaired with repair paint which can be ordered where you bought your furniture. Note that it is not possible to achieve the same glossy surface with repair paint as the original surface treatment.

As the chair is made of solid beechwood, there may be variations and minor irregularities in the painted surface. The gloss may also vary from chair to chair and on individual parts of the same chair. Minor imperfections show up more clearly on high gloss surfaces which must be accepted.
