Materials and Product Care

Materials & Product Care

At RESS Furniture we pride ourselves on using only the highest quality materials to ensure the best and long-lasting finish to all our products. All materials are locally sourced through reliable and highly rated vendors, who we have worked with for over several years. Because all our products are handcrafted from natural materials slight colour variations may occur.

Upon receiving your new piece, please carefully unpack this from its protective transport packaging. Take care whilst unpacking as some of our products can be heavy/fragile and a danger to small children/animals should they fall or be dropped. All our products are inspected and thoroughly cleaned prior to packaging however during transport some pieces may gather dust so a quick wipe down may be required prior to displaying.

Please see below for more information on each raw material used throughout our products and how to care for these to ensure the longevity of your product.

Our products are manufactured using only the highest grade steel (ERW seamless grade), this ensures our products are finished to the highest quality to supplement either your chosen Silestone/Quartz, marble or glass top. Our skilled craftsman take time and extreme accuracy to ensure you are unable to spot any welding marks or steelwork joints on our fully assembled units.

As standard we finish all our steel in a powder coating paint (unless specified otherwise), please see below:

Powder Coated Steel

  • While powder coating is much more durable than paint, and lasts a lot longer, it still is not 100% impervious to dirt, dust, and the extreme heat.

To clean use the following methods

  • Use only mild soap and warm water
  • Never use chlorine or any other cleaning solutions with harsh and corrosive chemical properties
  • All powder coated products should be cleaned with either a soft cloth or a push

All of our products are made from mild steel as standard and some come in an unfinished style which gives them a raw appearance. Our non-powder coated furniture is only to be only be used indoors and we suggest being very careful when cleaning these products. Use only a dry cloth and avoid contact with water. For further cleaning advice please contact ourselves.


Silestone/Quartz is a combination of natural and handmade materials that are extraordinarily hard and resilient. These characteristics combine to create an ideal surface for kitchen countertops, bathrooms, flooring, and wall siding.

We combine Silestone with 90% of our products as it is a non-porous surface and highly resistant to staining caused by coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup, and many other everyday product making it ideal for use a breakfast bar, coffee table, console unit and man others.

General Care Instructions for Silestone/Quartz:

Spilled liquids should be removed using a clean, natural coloured cloth with lukewarm water and mild household cleaner if required.

If a more thorough clean is required for stubborn stains soak the area for up to 10 minutes with a household cleaner and vigorously wipe away with a non-scratch Scotch brite pad.

Use coasters/protective place mats underneath drinks and hot objects to protect the surface. (This is not necessarily required but recommended)

Natural Marble

Marble is a porous material with an open surface that needs protection, and any spilled liquids should be wiped off immediately to avoid any long lasting damage.

All of our marble products are supplied fully polished and are thoroughly cleaned prior to assembly/packaging.

To ensure our products are kept as natural as possible we do not add any wax, protective or artificial coatings.

To clean, water is only to be used in small amounts and should be applied by a damp cloth, after wiping the surfaces clean always wipe with a dry cloth.

General Care Instructions for Marble:

Spilled liquids should be removed immediately using a clean, natural coloured cloth with lukewarm water.

If a more thorough clean is required only use a pH-neutral soap, e.g. soap flakes may be used. Any acid or alkaline product will degrade/stain the surface.

Use coasters/protective place mats underneath drinks and hot objects to protect the surface.


We only ever use toughened safety glass on our products. To clean use a damp wet cloth paired with a standard household glass cleaner. Don’t use any harsh chemicals or cleaning cloths that may scratch the glass surface. Mirrored Glass should only be cleaned on the front face.
