Why Is Our Restorations Service So Popular?

Our antique furniture restoration service is proving extremely popular, with many clients understanding both the potential and the benefits of having their treasured piece brought back to its former glory.

Within reason there really isn't anything that we can't do, such is the vast experience and expertise that we have with antique restoration - not to mention antique furniture as a whole.

We can also replace any broken antique locks, keys and handles and can supply the correct replacements that match the period of your piece.

With all of our work, great care is taken to use traditional methods, from skillful cabinet work by using the correct hand tools and the use of the old fashioned pearl glue through to the finishing process with the use of traditional shellac (French) polish and wax finishing.

All in all tremendous care is taken to preserve the look and the value of your piece that is personal to you.

Any job is considered, from glueing and minor repairs to more extensive work, or even the making of a copy to match or replace your piece.

Here is the pictures of Elm Dining Table that I've recently restored, as you can see the top was badly worn but we've carefully hand stripped off the old finish, re-polished and waxed it back into good order. The customer was delighted with the end result!

I'm pleased to say that my client was extremely happy with the restoration work I carried out on there mahogany staircase. After many months of building work there, house renovation is near completion, but as you can see the staircase suffered badly, even though it was covered over the whole time.

The staircase was cleaned, coloured, repolished and waxed back into good order, also on the upper level there was a new staircase that had been fitted! This was colour matched polished and waxed so to compliment the existing one. This was hard work but with a very satisfying end result.

If your staircase or handrail is looking tired or you have a new on being fitted then please contact me at or +44 (0) 1454 238 004

We took this early 19th century painted pine linen press, that had no feet, no cornice and damaged handles.

We re-built the missing cornice, feet and mouldings. Stripped, sanded, coloured, polished, waxed the whole piece, supplied and fitted solid brass swan neck handles and brought this piece back into good order.

We were happy with the results and more importantly my clients were too! And they felt they had saved a piece that a lot of people would have burnt or used in a garage for storage.
