Covers should never be machine washed or dry cleaned by a laundrette as this can damage the fire retardant treatment, fade colours and affect the finish of the fabric. Where zips are fitted this is often to assist ease of manufacture and does not necessarily mean that the cover is removable for cleaning.
G Plan recommends that you use a specialist upholstery cleaning company for your furniture. If you have purchased a fabric care treatment for you furniture please consult your care treatment provider for cleaning advice.
You can dust leather furniture with a soft brush weekly. All leathers can also be wiped weekly with a damp cloth and cleaned quarterly by wiping over with a lukewarm mild solution of pure soaping agent.
Dressing is the maintenance required to keep your furniture in top shape. All loose cushions should be plumped regularly, with a minimum of six plumps ( 3 back & front ) to minimise creasing & flattening.
Reversible cushions should be turned at regular intervals and their positions swapped around to enhance their appearance and comfort and to minimise wear & tear.
Fixed seat and arm cushions require plumping and re-dressing after every use to keep them in excellent condition. Ensure that the cushions and fabric are straightened and ‘smoothed’ out to their original position.

Chenille fabrics are woven using a Chenille Yarn. Chenille yarns consist of several strands of thread twisted together with short fibres running crossways trapped between them. It’s these short fibres that create the pile effect. Chenille yarns are often used to create an uneven, random effect with a soft surface texture. The fabric is then tumbled to further add to the soft texture. Shading may occur across the piece due to the pile running in different directions. For example one arm may appear darker than the other. Chenille fabrics have more yarn joins which appear on the surface and are a natural characteristic rather than a fault. The thickness of Chenille yarn tends to vary slightly giving a random unevenness to the surface. This may appear as slightly raised lines across the fabric and should not be confused with rogue yarns which sometimes occur as faults in other fabrics. Chenille’s can be subject to ‘pile movement’, particularly in areas of frequent use. This can create a shading look which is a natural characteristic and not a fault of the fabric. It is a feature that builds the character of the furniture as it is used. As Chenille & Velvet fabrics may change appearance after use it is possible to restore the pile to its original position by brushing the fabric regularly with a soft brush.
Additional fabric can be purchased from any of our retailers. These can be found on our website.
The store models have been used regularly by consumers trying out the models. This usage has already softened the interiors and in time yours will also do the same.
On Furniture where there are loose cushions the fire label can be found under the seat cushions on the seat platform. Fixed seat models the labels can be found inside the back interior cushion cover.
