Lighting Care Guide

Thank you for choosing Michele Varian Lighting. Here are some things you need to know to care for your item. Michele Varian lighting is constructed out of solid metals. This means that your item will have distinguishing marks from the manufacturing process that are not considered imperfections. Please follow all instructions and labels on the fixtures including wattage limitations. All hardwiring should be installed by a licensed electrician. Michele Varian is not responsible for any applications or modifications made after delivery.

Brass, Copper, Steel (Uncoated)
Dust regularly with a feather duster or soft dry cloth. Uncoated metals have a "live" finish and will develop a patina over time. Exposure to humidity and damp areas will expedite the process. Metal handled with bare hands will react to oil in your skin. If you prefer to restore your metal to its original lustre you can use a metal polishing kit and follow the instructions indicated on the packaging. Dry your piece extremely well after polishing.

Brass, Copper, Steel (Lacquered)
Dust with a feather duster or soft dry lint free cloth. This piece is coated with a clear polyurethane lacquer finish. Do not use any abrasives or cleaning products on coated fixtures. This will damage or remove the protective finish.

Powder Coated Metal
Dust with a feather duster or soft dry lint free cloth. Do not use any abrasives or cleaning products on coated fixtures. This will damage or remove the applied finish.
