If you want to care for your furniture like a pro, I recommend using the all-natural, nontoxic furniture care products hand mixed in Brooklyn by Christophe Pourny Studio. Christophe is an expert in furniture restoration and custom finishes. He grew up in the South of France, honing his skills at his parents antique shop. For nearly 20 years he has been working out of his studio in Dumbo, Brooklyn along with his partner Jason Jobson. Several years ago they started mixing and selling their own line of high-quality furniture care products. Not only will these products leave your furniture with a rich, lustrous finish, but they smell great too! I love the attention to detail, and simple, artisanal packaging. If you have open shelves in your kitchen or pantry, you can keep these items on display and they will look great and add style to your home.

Christophe Pourny's signature Furniture Tonic is made with organic linseed and walnut oils sourced in North America. It restores the luster and shine of your furniture that can diminish with time and sun exposure. Best of all, you can choose from Lavender, Rosemary, Bergamot, Cedar, or Sandalwood scented tonics. $18 for a 6.7 oz. bottle.
The Color Reviver is great for enhancing dark wood finishes. $19.99 for a 6.7 oz. bottle.
This hand poured clear wax will shine and protect most wood finishes. $20 for an 8 oz. tin.
Leather Serum and Cream will keep your leather moist and shiny, and brings aged, cracked, and dried leather back to life. The serum is made with Italian avocado oil, and the cream is made with beeswax and organic carnuba wax. Leather Serum - $18 for a 2 oz. bottle. Leather Cream - $16 for a 2 oz. jar.
Made with Italian Wool Flannel, this polishing mitt is a great tool to dust and polish your furniture without leaving behind a linty residue like paper towels. You can use one side to apply the wax or tonic, and the other side to shine and polish. Machine washable, $18.
