Designer: Stella Graversen
Model: Beside linoleum top – light pink
Cleaning: Daily cleaning is carried out with a wrung-out cloth in lukewarm water. For ongoing maintenance of the surface, it is recommended to use linoleum care (PH neutral cleaning agent), which can be bought online, in furniture stores and in most supermarkets.
Linoleum is a natural material made from linseed oil (extracted from the linseed plant), resin, wood flour, limestone flour and natural color pigments, which are then given a special surface finish which ensures that linoleum is naturally antistatic.
When the linoleum is finished, the linoleum is stored on rolls before it is cut for the desired purpose. Therefore, there can be tensions in the material that can cause curvatures. In other words, you may find that the linoleum top curves slightly. It will straighten out after some time, but it goes faster by putting a book or similar. on top of your Beside with linoleum top.
