General Care

While different products and materials have specific care requirements, there are some best practices we recommend you follow in order to keep your Marrimor object looking tip-top.

  • Unless an object is outdoor rated, put it in a location where the temperature doesn’t vary too much between hot and cold
  • Objects prefer low humidity, so reduce the humidity as much as possible in the room where it lives
  • Uneven or jagged items may cause scratches on hard surfaces and snags on soft surfaces, so it’s best to keep those away from objects
  • Direct sunlight can discolour certain materials over time, so avoid keeping an object in direct sunlight for any extended period of time
  • Always use a coaster under liquids and hot or cold dishes
  • Any fabric that contains a significant amount of dye, such as indigo dyed denim, may cause contact discolouration on furniture

Specific Care


The safest way to care for upholstery fabric is to have it cleaned by either a dry cleaner or professional upholstery cleaner at the lowest possible temperature with gentle solvents and cleaners.

  • If staining or spilling occurs on an upholstered product, dab the affected area as quickly as possible with a clean, dry cloth. If staining persists consider having a professional cleaner try to remove it
  • For crumbs and dust, the upholstery attachment on your vacuum can be used to gently clean fabric
  • For velvet and mohair, use a velvet brush to maintain the appearance of the fabric. With these fabrics some crushing can happen over time, but that’s part of the charm of the material
  • Boucle fabrics require extra special care, so it’s best to always have an experienced professional clean it


Metal objects are powder coated to provide a durable, uniform finish. Powder coated metal resists rust, water damage and extreme temperature changes, but it’s not impregnable. Basic care should be taken to keep the object in good condition.

  • Carefully remove any stains or markings with a moistened non-abrasive sponge
  • For more difficult stains or markings, use a pH-neutral soap along with a non-abrasive brush
  • Wipe dry immediately with a clean cloth
  • Never use a solvent-based cleaner on a powder coated surface
  • Salt water is particularly damaging to powder coated finishes, so keeping metal objects outdoors in coastal climates is not recommended
  • To restore sheen on a powder coated object, apply a thin layer of auto wax and wipe it off once the wax has dried
