Simple steps to make your J39 Mogensen Chair last for generations.




Daily cleaning
Wipe with a clean, dry cloth. We do not recommend using wet cloths on oiled surfaces if this can be avoided. For stains that cannot be removed with a dry cloth, use a soft cloth dampened with clean water and wrung out.

Oiled wood surfaces must be maintained regularly with the application of a thin layer of oil.
