Virkelyst Sofa is a modern outdoor sofa with the seating comfort of an indoor furniture. The simple wooden frame strikes a contrast with the thick, soft cushions. The upholstery fabrics are Oeko-Tex certified and extremely colour and lightfast as well as water and dirt-repellent and even mildew-resistant. The cushion is filled with airy fossflakes – an allergy-friendly polyethylene material which maintains its volume and shape over time.

MATERIAL AND CARE
Proper usage and maintenance
Proper usage and maintenance is vital for getting the most out of the valuable resources we have. Our designs are made to last for generations, but just like everything else, they need a little care to get there.
Teak is commonly found in Southeast Asia and Central and South America. Our FSC-certified Teak comes from Central America and Brazil, while our non-certified Teak comes from plantations in Indonesia and Trinidad; managed to sustain a renewable and reliable supply of wood.
Teak is a heavy, hard and sturdy type of wood. The high content of natural oils makes it highly weather and rot resistant and is therefore a good choice for outdoor furniture.
Do a general cleaning when needed with a suitable wood cleaner and soft bristle brush. Rinse afterwards with clear water and let it dry. Note: Wipe off tables, benches and chairs after dinner and such with a dry cloth.
As the wood is untreated, the surface will patinate over time and eventually turn into a beautiful silvery grey colour. If you wish to preserve or intensify the original honey-golden colour, use a suitable furniture oil on a regular basis. No matter what you choose, the wood will be resistant to everyday wind and weather thanks to the high content of natural oils.
During winter we advise you to store the furniture in an unheated room such as a garage or cellar.
The wood has been dried for outdoor use. Hence, if you wish to use the furniture indoors it may need to be re-tightened once in a while.
Barriere is our own range of Oeko-Tex certified and solution-dyed acrylic fabrics used for upholstering our cushions and pillows. The acrylic fibre we use is a synthetic but cotton-like fabric with world-class features for outdoor usage, making it:
- Extremely colour and lightfast
- Water and dirt repellent
- Free from harmful substances
- Removable and machine washable at 30° C.
Wipe the fabric with a firmly wrung cloth. In case of more obstinate stains, remove the upholstery and machine wash it at 30° C.
If the fabric is exposed to heavy rain, we recommend that you take it off and dry it separately with the filling.
Fossflake is a 100 % pure and hypoallergenic polyethylene known for its superb ability to trap air between the flakes and maintain its volume and shape over time. In addition, Fossflakes are good at regulation temperature since the filling materials allow air to circulate within the cushion.
Cushions and pillows are filled with a hollow conjugated polyester fiber on the UK/US market.
