All Tailored by OKA upholstered furniture is made to order in the USA by a team of highly skilled craftspeople.
From start to finish, each piece is created with the utmost care and attention to produce distinctive designs constructed to high standards from carefully selected materials. With the correct care and maintenance, your Tailored by OKA furniture will provide you with years of comfort and satisfaction—please take some time to read how to care for your item properly.
Our Tailored by OKA collection of upholstered furniture is available in a selection of linens, velvets, leathers and wools. Each fabric has different characteristics, which require different methods of care to keep them looking their best. Every effort is made to ensure that the products supplied correspond as closely as possible to the display items in our stores, fabric swatches, and images used in our magazines and on our website; however, variations may occur during normal manufacturing between each batch of fabric and due to the unique characteristics of natural materials.
Our clever linen has the typical look and feel of natural linen, but with extra benefits due to the synthetic additions woven into the yarn. It is partly moisture wicking with high light fastness and rub count.
Dab spills with a damp cloth immediately—do not wipe or leave the stain overnight.
Dry clean only.
Dry clean only.
Iron on a low temperature if necessary.
Dry cleaning recommended.
To maintain the fabric, all pillows should be turned regularly to avoid uneven wear.
Frequent light vacuuming will greatly extend its life.
We do not recommend exposing this fabric to sunlight as it may cause some fading.
Dust absorbs moisture and will cause your leather to dry out. To avoid this, periodically dust with a dry cloth.
Blot stains immediately with a dry cloth to absorb all the moisture. Do not rub the leather as this may spread the liquid and create larger marks.
Spot clean with a mild soap and water solution; mix three parts water with one part mild soap. Do not use chemicals or abrasive cleaning agents. The stain will look its worst at the time of the incident but will begin to disperse and look like a part of the fabric.
Use the heat of your hand or a hairdryer to smooth out and remove scratches. The natural waxes and oils in the leather should shift and move to cover the scratch.
Avoid positioning your leather furniture in direct sunlight as this will cause it to fade. If this is unavoidable, try draping a throw blanket over the exposed leather to protect it.
Never place leather items directly against a radiator as the heat will dry out the leather and cause it to crack. Applying leather conditioner can reduce the rate of damage over a prolonged period of time.
Our Tailored by OKA seat cushions contain high quality fillings carefully calculated to give the ideal loft for each style. All seat and back cushion fillings will compress when used, just like a pillow. The appearance and performance of your cushions can be preserved by regular maintenance. Follow these simple steps as soon as your furniture is in use:
Foam and fiber with a Dacron Wrap
All Cushion Fillings
All Tailored by OKA frames and legs are crafted using sustainably sourced birch hardwood, using the traditional screw and dowel method for maximum durability. The removable legs are available stained to an Ebony or Grayed Oak finish.
Furniture must be positioned on a solid, level surface to ensure the product does not rock and damage the frame; use felt pads on the feet or castor cups to assist if the floor is not level and to protect wooden and delicate flooring from possible marking.
Removable legs that screw in may loosen with use; check monthly that they are secure by gently turning, but be careful not to over tighten.
Avoid dragging or dropping your upholstery onto corners or feet, or leaning back on two legs as this may cause damage. Always lift furniture with two people and place it down gently.
To clean the wooden legs on your furniture, use a clean, damp cloth. They can be polished occasionally with natural wax. We recommend that you do not use household detergent or cleaning products on them.
If upholstery is exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, it will cause the color and fabric to deteriorate. Usage in hot and sunny areas is not recommended.
We advise leaving at least a foot of clearance from heat sources such as radiators to prevent color change or permanent marks occurring. Likewise, keep furniture a safe distance away from working fireplaces.
Do not place hot items such as cups, laptops or hot water bottles on the fabric as these may leave marks.
We do not recommend keeping products in excessively high or low temperatures or where the environment is often damp, as this may cause issues.
To help prolong the life of your upholstery, we advise the following:
