Care and cleaning of our concrete

We recommend that you leave the table in its original packaging at room temperature for 24 hours after receiving the table. This is to acclimate.


Concrete is a building material that contains natural elements, such as calcium, gravel and water. Even if you treat your table as recommended we cannot guarantee that it is 100% repellent to acid, coffee, red wine, fat etc. Your tabletop is pre-treated with a liquid and silicone-free wax from production.

If you want a raw and more variegated tabletop, we recommend using the table without further treatment. We think that concrete should be allowed to live its life and receive the “tooth of time”, like a leather chair or a piece of oak, which just gets more beautiful over time.


If you want a more well-protected top against everyday dirt, we recommend that you regularly treat the table.


Maintenance tips —

  • Wipe with a clean, damp cloth. We recommend cleaning without detergent.
  • We recommend that you regularly treat the table with the same liquid wax that we have given the table from its birth. You can buy the wax here. The wax will give the table a fine sheen and ensure that the table patinas with grace.
  • Avoid placing hot or moist objects directly on the table top.
  • Avoid direct sunlight on the furniture the first 4 weeks.

If you’re unsure of the maintenance of your concrete table top, please send us an email: info@eberhart-furniture.com.

We will gladly run through any stain- or maintenance issues with you.

How to apply wax —

We recommend using liquid wax for ongoing maintenance. As an alternative to the liquid wax, we can also recommend this hard wax from the same supplier. The wax gives the tabletop a repellent and natural surface.

  • Wipe the surface of the table with a damp cloth and let it dry.
  • Apply the wax.
  • Massage the wax into the table using a dry disposable cotton cloth. Do small areas at a time. Apply thin layers. A thick layer of wax can cause visible strokes.

Care and cleaning of our leather

As a natural material, leather requires looking after. If you care for the leather in the right way, it will become even more beautiful over time.

Maintenance tips —

  • Only vacuum clean with a soft brush. 
  • Never use soap or water otherwise the velvety look and feel will disappear.
  • Do not apply leather grease or soak the leather. 
  • Avoid any chemical products, such as saddle soap, other leather cleaners or household products.
  • Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects.

Care and cleaning of our wood

When you receive a solid wood table from us, we recommend that you leave the furniture in its original packaging at room temperature for 3 days after receiving the furniture, so that it can acclimatise.

As standard, all our wooden parts are made of solid oak. Wood is a natural material that can be affected by changing humidity, direct sunlight and normal wear and tear. Our tables are basically treated with oil, but in connection with you taking your new table into use, we recommend that you finish the table with more oil. We do not sell the recommended oil, but it is widely available in the retail trade. We use oils from Junckers, which you can read more about in our materials guide.

Maintenance tips —

  •  Use a damp cloth without detergent for daily care. Or use cleaning products specially designed for solid wood.
  • Avoid exposing the wood to direct sunlight or heat from radiators or other heat sources, which in the worst case can cause the wood to split.
  • Avoid placing hot or moist objects directly on the furniture or covering it with airtight material.
  • We do not recommend partially covering the surfaces as this may cause color differences across the surface.
  • In the event of nicks, splinters or stains, these can be removed by sanding and subsequent oil treatment of the furniture.
  • If the wood “rises”, we recommend taking the back of a piece of sandpaper and running it lightly over the entire surface. Finish with the respective oil with which you bought the table. Contact info@eberhart-furniture.com if you are in doubt about which oil to use.
  • We recommend oiling the furniture 4-6 times the first year and then at least twice a year, preferably before and after the winter season.

If you’re unsure of the maintenance of your oak tabletop, please send us an email:  info@eberhart-furniture.com.

We will gladly run through any stain or maintenance issues with you.

How to apply oil —

Recommended oil for wood —


Step by step —


  • Use sandpaper or a sanding sponge with a grit of 280-320, and sand gently in grain direction.
  • After sanding, wipe the furniture with a damp cloth. Make sure that the furniture is completely dry before applying the oil treatment.
  • Apply the oil with a dry cloth in grain direction. Never pour oil directly onto the furniture surface. Also remember to apply oil treatment underneath the furniture, as this will reduce the risk of the wood distorting.
  • Let the oil treatment penetrate and wipe off the excess oil with a dry cloth.
  • Pour water over the oiling cloths and put them in an airtight plastic bag to avoid the risk of spontaneous combustion.
  • Let the furniture dry for approximately 12 hours before use. It takes approximately 2 weeks for the oil to fully cure, so in this period it is recommended only to use a dry cloth for daily care.

Please note that an oil treatment is a surface impregnation and not a complete protection of the wood. The oil works as a membrane that highlights the wood structure and protects the wood against drying, dirt and humidity.

Care and cleaning of our linoleum

We use furniture linoleum which is easy to clean and maintain.

Maintenance tips —

  • Clean with a damp cloth, optional a pH-neutral detergent can be used.
  • To prevent stubborn stains, trivets should be used under flower pots, vases and preferably also under cups and glasses etc. It is important to remove stains immediately to prevent permanent marks.
  • For ongoing maintenance of the surface use a linoleum care product. In case of heavy soiling use a suitable neutral detergent (eg Forbo Cleaner).
  • Small scratches can be made less visible with massaging your finger or a fat nut (eg walnut) against the scratch. 
  • Linoleum is not heat resistant – do not place hot items directly on top.
  • Go go Forbo for further maintenance tips.
