At King Living, our cushions are meticulously crafted to adapt to the user's form. As you continue to use your new King Living furniture, it will develop a soft, well-loved look. The most effective way to reach optimum comfort and the desired appearance is by regular usage.

Below are some suggestions for taking care of your sofa cushions:

Frequent fluffing

Make sure to fluff your seat and back cushions on a regular basis to keep their form and spread the filling evenly. This will help avoid the cushions becoming deflated or uneven. 

Rotation and Plumping 

Periodically rotate the cushions to balance wear and tear. King Living's feather and Ultradown®* packed seat and back cushions require consistent 'plumping' to sustain their tidy appearance and form. Frequently pat the filling towards the centre of the seats and plump the back cushions to ensure your cushions provide long-lasting comfort and support.

Feather Shaking

Shake out the feathers regularly to smooth out channel lines and lumps. The plush feather blend in King Living cushions is arranged in channels, akin to a high-quality bed comforter. Some fabrics or leathers might slightly reveal these channel lines on the surface, which is a common trait of superior, soft feather blend cushioning.

Weekly Vacuuming

Use an upholstery attachment to vacuum your cushions every week. This helps in eliminating dust, dirt, and pet hair, keeping the cushions clean and reducing the friction that could lead to fabric pilling and wear.

Immediate Spot Cleaning

If spills or stains occur, blot the area instantly with a clean, dry cloth to absorb as much liquid as you can. A mild soap and water solution can be used for general cleaning, but test it on a hidden area first to ensure it doesn't harm the fabric.

Cover Removal

If your cushions come with detachable covers, adhere to the washing and drying instructions. Some covers can be machine washed, while others may need dry cleaning or hand washing. Make sure to zip up the covers before washing to avoid any damage.

Sunlight Protection

Continuous exposure to direct sunlight can lead to fading and degradation of cushion fabrics. To avoid this, position your sofa out of direct sunlight or use blinds or curtains to reduce exposure.

Professional Cleaning

It's worth considering professional cleaning for your cushions annually or as needed, based on the level of use. This deep cleaning process can help eliminate dirt and allergens that may not be removed by regular vacuuming and spot cleaning.

Storage

If you must store your cushions for a prolonged period, keep them in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated space. Use breathable storage bags or covers to prevent the growth of mould and mildew.

Preserving the quality and comfort of your sofa and back seat cushions enhances their longevity and aesthetic appeal.
