Timber furniture – 5 Years
A 5-year warranty covers the structural integrity of our 100% timber items. We ensure the quality of our design and workmanship, expecting them to provide a lifetime of enjoyment when subject to their intended use. Our timber furniture is not designed to be dragged along the floor at any time, it should only be lifted and moved with care.
Please Note: Timber is a natural product and susceptible to environmental and atmospheric conditions, these can affect the performance and appearance of your furniture, causing changes such as shrinkage, expansion, bowing, checking, splitting and colour change which cannot be warranted.
Our finishes are subject to everyday wear and tear they too cannot be warranted. To keep your piece looking its best, refer to our care instructions (summary below)and advice available on request.
A 2-year warranty covers the structural integrity of our MDF and Painted items. Painted MDF surfaces are susceptible to everyday wear & tear and cannot be warranted. MDF although painted, is not a waterproof product and any moisture damage due to incorrect care, maintenance or placement is not able to be warranted (further details in the Care section below).

A 1-year warranty covers the structural integrity of outdoor products. All our outdoor products are made to the highest quality to help them withstand the elements. We cannot warrant products that are exposed to extreme
At Green Cathedral our philosophy is to craft furniture that will last, both in design and quality.
Over their lifetime our products will need a little care and attention to ensure they can be enjoyed by generations to come. This guide will help you care for your Green Cathedral products in the best possible way.
When choosing the location for your product be mindful of environmental factors such as heat sources, pets and humidity as they will all have an effect on your furniture. Do not place in direct sunlight as this will cause fading and structural movement in both fabrics and timber.
Timber with an Oil Finish
For timber products with an oil finish, we recommend that you pay particular attention to protecting the piece from hot or wet objects. Do not leave the liquid to sit on timber surfaces as it will penetrate the surface and cause staining. Wipe up spills immediately with a damp cloth. Dependent on the position of the piece and the conditions of your home, we recommend re-oiling once a year. Care packages specifically for timber with an oil finish are available by contacting Green Cathedral directly. Before you begin re-oiling, place a protective layer beneath your furniture to catch any drips or spills. Always test the top oil in an inconspicuous area to ensure the desired finish is achieved before applying. Do not use any other cleaners or polishes as they may cause permanent damage to your furniture.
Timber with a Paint Finish
Regularly wipe timber to remove dust and dirt. Do not wet down or leave spills to sit on timber surfaces. Avoid contact with liquids, heat and keep out of direct/reflective sunlight. Take care when placing unglazed ceramics as they may scratch the surface. Do not use any other cleaners or polishes as they may cause permanent damage.
Painted MDF Furniture
A regular wipe of the painted surface with a cloth to remove dust and dirt. Be careful not to wet the oak inlay detail as this can absorb moisture into the MDF, which will result in a bubbling effect in the MDF under the painted surface (this is not covered under warranty). Stool legs and treads are left uncoated to allow easy removal of scuff marks, just lightly sand with a 180 grit sandpaper, Green Cathedral are happy to supply on request.
For longevity please keep furniture in outdoor under-covered areas. Avoid direct sunlight and harsh weather conditions. Timber, steel and outdoor fabric will naturally discolour with age in an outdoor setting. Refer to the relevant fabric supplier website for specific care and maintenance guidelines. For all timber products, we recommend gently sanding the surface and applying a UV-stable exterior grade oil such as decking oil every six months.
Marble & Laminates
It is essential that you do not leave any liquid to sit on marble or Laminate surfaces as it can penetrate and cause staining. Wipe up spills immediately with a damp cloth. Clean with warm soapy water. For stubborn stains use a creme cleaner with a soft sponge or cloth.
Regularly wipe the metal with a damp soft cloth to remove particles which can abrade the surface over time. Avoid contact with liquid, heat and direct sunlight. Abrasive cleaning products are not recommended.
Vacuum fabrics on a weekly basis to remove dust, dirt and any loose feathers. Treat spills and stains as soon as possible by wiping with a damp cloth. Scrubbing can alter the appearance of the fabrics, we recommend contacting a specialist fabric cleaner to treat difficult stains. Please contact fabric manufacturer for care information specific to your fabric. To avoid any colour change and prolong the life of your fabric we recommend keeping your furniture out of direct sunlight and if possible, rotate the cushions on a regular basis.
Wipe leather with a clean damp cloth on a weekly basis to remove particles and dust that can work into the hide and cause damage. Creases, stretch marks and scars the animal acquires during its life are a natural characteristic and does not affect the quality of the leather. Some softening and stretching of the leather is to be expected with use. To treat difficult stains and for regular maintenance, we recommend contacting a specialist leather cleaner in your area.
Regularly shape and rotate loose cushions where applicable to maintain their shape and loft. Some movement may occur with loose covers as they are designed for a relaxed look and feel. It is natural that cushion fillings will settle and seat foams will soften over time. While specialised fabrics have been selected to contain feathers in compartments, occasionally feather quills can pierce through the covers. These can be simply removed by pulling the feather out.
If you have any questions regarding the care & maintenance of your products, please do not hesitate to contact Green Cathedral for recommendations.
