Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take care of my velvet furniture?

To keep your velvet furniture looking brand new, we recommend to take extra care when cleaning. Clean the fabric with a soft dry cloth, avoiding direct heat and sunlight, dusting and vacuuming regularly to avoid dirt build up. Avoid contact with sharp edges to protect the fabric and wipe spills immediately with a soft, clean cloth.

How do I take care of my Leather furniture?
Leather is a very durable material and can be maintained easily. It's important to understand that leather needs special care. Clean it regularly. Dust and dirt can damage leather, so clean it regularly with a soft cloth. Leather cleaning solutions are available in the market that are specially formulated for cleaning leather furniture. The solution should be applied on a clean cloth and rubbed gently on the surface of the leather. The excess solution should then be wiped off with another clean cloth. Once a month or once in two months, apply a leather conditioner to restore the softness and sheen of your leather furniture. Apply it in circular motions on the entire surface of the leather and let dry before wiping off with another clean cloth.
How do I take care of my fabric furniture?
Make sure you vacuum your fabric furniture on a regular basis. Vacuuming will remove any dust that has accumulated on the surface while also removing pet hair and other debris that might be present in your home. You should also use a damp sponge to wipe down your furniture when it is particularly dirty or stained. This will help remove dirt without damaging the fabric's colour or texture. Each fabric is different so be sure to check the individual care specification on each product you purchase.
How long is the guarantee?
All of our Rūma collections come with a 2-year guarantee as standard, so you can rest easy knowing you've bought a quality piece that will last. Our guarantee doesn't apply to general wear and tear expected with the ageing and use of products.
How much dining space does each person need at a table?
If you're looking for a dining table that will comfortably seat all your guests and family, it's important to understand what size table you need so that it will be large enough to accommodate everyone who will be sitting there, and you can buy the appropriate amount of dining chairs. Each person needs around a 2 foot wide place setting, with around 5 feet depth to pull the chair comfortably in and out from the table. This will vary depending on how high the backs are on your dining chairs as to whether you can tuck them in further when not in use.
How many dining chairs should I buy?
When deciding how many chairs you need, think about what kind of dining room you have - formal or informal - and how often you entertain. If you're looking for a new dining room set or just want to replace a few pieces, it may help to know exactly how much space you have and whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary style. If you have a small family, or if you entertain only occasionally, then you might be able to get by with as few as four dining chairs. If you have a large family, or if you entertain often, then eight is a good number to start with. If your budget allows for more than eight, then feel free to go up from there. If you have place to store them, consider buying more dining chairs than you need for your family so that you always have enough for entertaining guests.
