Resource Guide

At Jonathan Louis, we design, craft and construct our furniture for you to enjoy and admire for years to come. For us, fashion begins with inspiration and a strong foundation.

FRAME CONSTRUCTION:

Our furniture is made of mostly hardwoods.  A variety of other wood species are used in non-stress areas.  To prevent the frame from warping, splitting or cracking over time, stress joints are reinforced with corner blocks, wood glue, and high-pressure stapling. Dacron polyester padding throughout prevents the upholstery fabric from coming into direct contact with the wooded frame.

SPRING CONSTRUCTION:

No-sag seat suspension features heavy gauge sinuous steel wire. Springs are evenly spaced 4" apart to provide added stability and uniform comfort. We offer a variety of seating alternatives, each designed to provide the perfect balance of comfort and look for a specific style. All of our cushions are made with High-Resiliency Foam and are completely reversible. Each is structured to compliment specific styles.

Standard Seating:
Our standard seating features High-Resiliency Foam core wrapped on both sides with a 1" layer of polyester.

Channeled Blown Fiber Seating:
Features High-Resiliency Foam core encased in a bag filled with blown polyester fiber and channeled to keep the fiber from shifting. Made to emulate a relaxed feather and down seat.

Super Plush Seating:
Features High-Resiliency Super Soft Foam core encased in a bag filled with blown polyester fiber and channeled to keep the fiber from shifting. The Super Soft Foam core is thicker than all of our seating and is the ultimate in sink-in comfort.

Premium Seating:
High-Resiliency Foam core with a 1'' layer of Convoluted Memory Foam encased in a bag filled with blown polyester fiber and channeled to keep the fiber from shifting. The layer of Convoluted Memory Foam adds to the comfort while giving a more tailored look to the cushions.

Feather Blend Seating:
Features a High Resiliency foam core wrapped in a down proof bag filled with blown fiber and duck feathers, channeled to keep the fiber from shifting.

 

CARE TIPS FOR YOUR UPHOLSTERY:

  • Vacuum the surface of your furniture regularly with the upholstery attachments of your vacuum cleaner.
  • Avoid direct sunlight as it can cause the fabrics to fade.
  • Loose cushions should be flipped and rotated frequently for even wear and to prolong their resiliency.
  • All spills should be cleaned immediately, start by blotting the spill using a clean, absorbent cloth. If stain remains, please follow the care instructions below based on the Cleaning Code associated with your particular upholstery fabric.     

 

CLEANING CODES:

S - Spot clean only with a water-free dry cleaning solvent. Pretest a small, inconspicuous area before proceeding. Do not saturate. DO NOT USE WATER. Pile fabrics may require brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to restore appearance. Cushion covers should not be removed and dry-cleaned. To prevent overall soiling, frequent vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to remove dust and grime is recommended. When cleaning a spill, blot immediately to remove spilled material. Clean spots or stains from the outside to the middle of the affected area to prevent circling.

 

W - Spot clean only with water-based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner. Pretest for color loss and fabric compatibility. Do not saturate. Use professional upholstery cleaning service for overall soiling.

WS - Spot clean with upholstery shampoo, foam from a mild detergent, or mild dry cleaning solvent. Pretest a small, inconspicuous area before proceeding. Do not saturate. Pile fabrics may require brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to restore appearance. Hot water extraction of steam cleaning is not a recommended cleaning method. Cushion casings should not be removed and laundered or dry-cleaned. To prevent overall soiling, frequent vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush to remove dust and grime is recommended. When cleaning a spill, blot immediately to remove spilled material. Clean spots or stains from the outside to the middle of affected area to prevent circling.

X - Cleaning only by vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic, stiff bristle brush. DO NOT USE ANY WATER OR SOLVENT BASED CLEANER.
