Natural materials - wood and leather
Several Innovation Living models consists of wooden legs and/or arms. As wood is a living natural material that continues to work over time, its color and surface change according to the usage of the furniture. Wood must be protected from direct sunlight to reduce fade.
Also, leather will fade just like other natural materials being exposed to sunlight and high heat. Consequently, furniture should not be exposed to direct sunlight or direct heat from heaters or other heat sources over longer periods of time. Generally, natural leather lasts longer if it is cleaned and maintained regularly. Use cleaning agents intended for leather furniture only.

Innovation Living mattresses
Our mattresses are a further development of the traditional Japanese cotton mattress. By combining the qualities of the classic natural mattress with modern techniques and materials, we are creating healthy and comfortable mattresses for your home.
Innovation Living’s mattress range includes several options with various comforts, each a unique combination of layers and materials. This offers an optimal choice for various needs and user types.
Some Innovation Living mattresses feature cotton layers. Cotton is a naturally breathable material that helps the body adjust its temperature which is vital for proper sleeping. The mattresses compositions, unique build and flexible materials makes them ideal to use in sofa beds and beds with elevation.
For mattresses with many cotton layers it is recommended to beat the mattress in order to air and even out the fillings. This will help keep the mattress in shape and further maintain its level of comfort.
Always keep the room in which your furniture is placed ventilated for normal humidity, as high humidity will reduce the durability and comfort of the mattress.
Mattresses with several layers of cotton can possibly cast off a characteristic cotton odor. Daily ventilation will cause it to disappear within approximately 14 days.
Contact your local Innovation Living dealer for further information about maintenance.
Innovation Living cushions
Our range of cushions are consisting of a mix of feather- and polyester fillings. These are combined to ensure the best back support and comfort. All cushion covers can be removed and cleaned. Please consult a professional dry cleaner.
In order to facilitate transportation, we have vacuum packed your cushions. This makes the filling look less plump. To get your cushions in shape, please remove the plastic and fluff up the cushion until the filling is plump and stretchy. If needed, repeat this a couple of times over the next few days. Regulate the corners of the cushion so that the filling is evenly spread; lastly you put the cushion into the cover.
Remember to fluff up the cushion regularly to maintain its shape. Keep the room and cushions ventilated to avoid humidity and thus extend the durability of your cushions.
