Material Care


At Madisons we pride ourselves in sourcing products which add comfort and functionality to your space. The materials and construction of these products are of our utmost interest, to create soft, durable and long lasting products. Below is information about our most commonly used materials, to ensure they are well looked after. 

Linen is a sustainable natural fibre from the flax plant. Being a natural product, it can become susceptible to sunlight fading; please be aware of this and consider the placing of linen products in your home. Slubbing is also a naturally occurring process of linen and should not be considered a fault; unlike pilling this should not be removed but can be pushed through to the other side of the fabric using a safety pin if desired. Machine wash on cold/warm and lay flat to dry.

Cotton is a common household material choice because of its soft feel, breathability and being hypoallergenic. Wash on a cool cycle to avoid shrinkage and do not use fabric softeners. Line-dry or iron when fabric is still damp.

Washing your feather cushion inners helps to keep the feathers fluffy and hygienic. Machine was on a cold or warm cycle, without any fabric softeners. Tumble dry, making sure the feathers are completely dry before finishing - if not, this can result in mould. 

Regularly plump and turn any feather filled cushions to ensure that they retain their shape. With any fixed components smooth over the fabric with your hands and pull back into the correct shape and alignment.

Many of our sofas have slip covers, allowing for easy cleaning. We recommend washing the entire slipcover; as washing only select parts may result in color variations on the sofa.
Place fabric back over sofa when fabric is still damp, allowing fabric to dry to shape.

To maintain your oaks shine and repel water, treat the wood with furniture oil, wax, or polish. Moisturise at least once a month to prevent cracking or more frequently, if the furniture gets daily wear and tear. For everyday cleaning, wipe the surface down with a clean, damp cloth, or use cleaning products specifically designed for hardwood.

Metal furniture is best cleaned with a cloth or sponge using water and mild, non-detergent soap and wiped dry - abrasive cloths will scuff and dull the surface over time.
