Steel gold plated

Our gold-plated finish consists of a welded steel frame plated with 24-karat gold, with the exception of the Pumpkin tabletop, which is solid brass plated with 24-karat gold. Gold is naturally resistant to oxidisation, and to maintain the material’s natural beauty and tactility, ours is uncoated. The gold finish is smooth and luxurious and requires specific care.

Care instructions

For regular cleaning, first remove dust with a feather duster or similar. Then use Windex or similar spray cleaner, followed by a soft, lint-free cloth.

Always use coasters and mats to protect the gold surface from watermarks, as liquids that are not quickly wiped away will leave a stain. Any stains can be cleaned using the following procedures, which will can also be used to restore shine if the surface becomes dull with time: Apply a small amount (approximately one teaspoon) of Plaster of Paris to a soft clean cloth. Use the cloth to rub the plaster into the metal surface. Continue rubbing until shine is restored. Wipe the excess with a soft clean cloth. If further cleaning is desired, a soft polishing cloth made specifically for gold may be used. Avoid using abrasive polishing cloths as they may damage the surface.

NEVER use harsh abrasives, bleach or cream cleaners. Note that gold-plating is a very thin layer - 200 times thinner than standard printer paper - so the use of abrasives over time can remove the plating, revealing the steel underneath. The best protection against surface scratches and staining is prevention.
