Wood is a natural material with variations of color shade, configuration, streaks, and grain structure. Each individual piece of Baker furniture has characteristic markings that will differ from photo and showroom samples. Don't be afraid to use your Baker furniture - that is what it's for! When you put fine furniture into your home or office, give it the care it deserves. Regular attention and maintenance of fine furniture can ensure its beauty for years to come.

Some plastic feet on computers, calculators, telephones and other rubber or plastic products, such as place mats and vinyl notebook binders, contain a plasticizing agent that may discolor or soften the lacquer finish on fine furniture. Always use felt pads under these articles to prevent discoloration or softening of the lacquer. Articles such as glasses, bookends, flowerpots, and hot cups and dishes should have cloth or felt type pads on them. Beware of some felt pads that have a pre-glued side as some of these adhesives contain chemicals that can damage the lacquer. Always remember to lift objects rather than sliding them across the finish.
