• Full restoration most times involves:

    • Disassembly of all furniture components.

    • Removing old varnishes, which are hand stripped with liquid strippers, made to our own non-caustic formulae.

    • Rebuilding by our own Cabinetmakers.

    • Sanding and re-polishing with top quality lacquers or hand french polishing wax finishes depending on one’s budget.

  • We take great pride in matching original hardware – such as handles and locks, new bevelled mirrors and leadlight repairs.

  • We still use slotted wood screws only, and recycled timber where possible to make repairs less visible.

  • We have a large collection of old pressed metal handles – most times enabling us to match you’re missing or damaged ones.

  • We restore handles with copper electroplating as they would have originally looked.

  • We have extensive experience repairing furniture e.g. damaged chairs, drawer runners – most times replaced
    in hardwood for extended durability and table bases.

  • Sometimes with antiques we can restore the old polish without stripping, retaining the old patina colour and finish.

  • With our upholstery we specialise mainly for the needs of customers who appreciate high quality. Many sample books are available for perusal, or on request referrals to mainstream fabric houses such as Warwick, Wortley Group, Redelman & Harris & Nugent.
