  • Avoid placing your furniture too close to radiators or other sources of heat, as extreme temperatures can trigger slight movement in the timber and dry it out. Position the table away from bright or hot lights and high humidity, ensuring adequate ventilation at all times.
    The lacquer finish can be cleaned easily by wiping with a damp, lint-free cloth. For polishing, Hugh Parsons recommends that only silicon-free polishes be used, applied using a dry, lint-free cloth, wiping always in the direction of the grain.
    Should a careless guest scratch or mark the lacquered finish do not attempt to remedy this yourself, but seek the advice of a professional polisher. And consider carefully whether you invite the person again.
    If you need to move your table, take care not to drag it as this can cause damage to the timber. We suggest that this is a perfect job for two able assistants, whilst you oversee and offer encouragement.
    If you are unsure about any aspect of caring for your furniture, please check with AUTHOR as incorrect after-care may result in accidental damage to the finish.
Why we love this product

This beautiful coffee table matches the way we take our coffee ? rich and dark.

We particularly like the irregular, non-rectangular shape of the ?tree slice? top, which is the perfect low height for a stack of interiors magazines to accompany our coffee.

The slim proportions of this table make it a useful piece of furniture for making the most of limited space. The legs kick out at a jaunty angle, which adds further interest.
