Thank you for choosing a Le Forge product...
Each steel piece of Le Forge furniture and home wares is individually made by our own craftspeople meticulously by hand and then individually finished to achieve the distinctive Le Forge look. Our unique designs and finishes are part of the Le Forge appeal requiring care to keep and protect their appearance.
As technology improves, we also develop and update our finishes to ensure you have the very best coating on your furniture. Our latest update was in 2017. The outdoor treatment on our steel furniture is covered in our own patented finish “Midnight No15” From that date all our steel furniture has been coated in this finish and is suitable for use indoors and outdoors. For touch ups we recommend the application of “Soft Flat Iron” Rustoleum Mettalic Spray Paint to be applied on any scratches or marks using the instructions on the can (available in selected hardware stores). Use as required to maintain and protect the finish and inhibit rust.
Le Forge is not responsible for the condition of furniture that has had inappropriate use. The manufactures warranty for Le Forge steel furniture is three years against rust and general wear and tear from the date of delivery. The manufacturers warranty excludes areas that touch and come in contact with the ground or flooring underneath (ie: The bottom of Chair Legs and underneath tables where they touch the surface below). All coated surfaces are prone to scratching which removes the protective coating and must always have our rubber caps on chair feet (these can be purchased from Le Forge) and tables need plastic underneath to avoid rusting, Rust will mark and damage the surfaces underneath it’s your responsibility to protect furniture as stated. Tin furniture and untreated products are not to be left outdoors and should be kept dry and used indoors only. Each of our products are handmade, sizes and finishes may vary slightly.
Once furniture has been purchased the client is responsible for protection to flooring, rugs etc. The rubber feet supplied by Le Forge for all steel chairs must be attached at all times to protect the coated finish on the bottom of the legs. If the powder coated finish has worn off the application of “Soft Flat Iron” Rustoleum Mettalic Spray Paint must be applied straight away following the manufacturers directions.Depending on usage, products with paint finishes applied to them (powder coated, faux rust, custom colours etc) may have paint chipping occur - we recommend the touch up information, if required as above.

Chair Cushions and UpholsteryEach cushion is hand made from an outsourced upholsterer. Our stock fabric is suitable for outdoors but prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading. They are to be cleaned by removing the inner foam and washing the fabric by hand with a liquid soap, do not use bleach or harsh detergent. Hang in the shade, do not wring dry. Do not use a hot iron on the fabric. Never use harsh brushing and be careful to avoid sharp objects to prevent tearing the fabric. There is no warranty for fabric supplied by the client or designer.
