Looking After Your Reproduction Antique Furniture

If you’ve recently purchased some antique reproduction furniture, or you’re considering your options, you also need to think about how you’re going to take care of it. Like most furniture, reproduction pieces usually need a quick dust and polish to keep them looking regal and shiny. However, there are other factors to consider. Experts in manufacturing and selling reproduction antique furniture in Leeds, West Yorkshire, our traditional pieces can look stunning in any room, and are easy to keep pristine.

Whilst our Leeds store remains temporarily closed due to the ongoing pandemic, we are still delivering our timeless pieces to homes across the UK. Our retailers are more than happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the upkeep of your new product. Read our article below to explore the many different ways you can care for your new reproduction piece.


Due to the wood and gloss used when being constructed, you should not use heavy duty chemicals on an antique reproduction piece. Clean the wood how you would clean other wooden products and furniture pieces in your home, and use soft materials to avoid scratches. When dusting, use a soft cloth, and never use silicone or wax based polish. Our vintage furniture is made of mahogany and yew wood, so its finish can be damaged if polished with the wrong product.

Our antique reproduction furniture shop in Leeds is home to a gorgeous range of products, such as occasional furniture and dining tables. If you decide on a stunning display cabinet for your home, you can clean the glass with a regular glass cleaner, but try to avoid streaks to keep the glass clear.


Where you decide to place your new reproduction piece can determine its durability. Try to avoid places of direct sunlight to avoid its colour fading or changing. Mild sunlight exposure won’t affect your new wooden piece, but placing it in strong sunlight can lead to discolouration after a while. Also, don’t keep the reproduction antique furniture right next to excessive heat, such as open flames or radiators.

Here at Kelvin Furniture, we sell timeless reproduction antique furniture in Leeds, and can deliver to your home. All of our pieces are finished in stunning mahogany and yew, giving you the most optimal product to display proudly in your home.


Like with any furniture pieces, spillages and stains of any kind should be cleared up immediately, especially if they can discolour or warp your product. Spillages of boiling hot substances like coffee or candle wax can change the texture of the wood, leaving a noticeable disfigurement. To avoid this, wipe up the mess as soon as you can, but try to avoid burning yourself. Also, try to clean up products such as alcohol promptly.

You should try and avoid placing hot objects directly onto the wood, as this can also lead to warping. Make sure you have a coaster down if you wish to place a cup of tea there, as they can save you from disaster.
