About the material

Linoleum is a natural material made from linseed oil, pine resin, cork, and wood flour. The natural material has a matt look and a soft touch. The material is also bacteria repellent because of the oxidation and is sound absorbing as well. Linoleum is constructed from 3 layers; impregnated felt paper, linoleum granules, and lacquer – together they form a solid surface that is hardwearing, durable, and easy to maintain. 

How to care for linoleum

Daily cleaning of tables with a linoleum surface can be done with a clean cloth wrung in lukewarm water. Do not use washing-up liquid or regular detergents, as these will leave the linoleum dried up. We recommend using linoleum care products 3-4 times a year as needed. Linoleum care products can be purchased at Montana Furniture A/S or in furniture shops.
