Antique Furniture Restoration
Antique Furniture Restoration
We are proud to have the most comprehensive professional antique furniture restoration workshops in the South West of England. Our team of antique restorers & french polishers have a great understanding of the importance of keeping your antique furniture original. It not only helps to hold the value of your furniture but also keeps the restoration costs to a minimum.
Our purpose-built workshop was designed purely for the care and restoration of furniture. The buildings power is generated by the bank of solar panels on the roof. Dust and and vapours are kept to the absolute minimum by the use of our triple fan extractor system and our clean rooms.
Unsure whether to restore or buy new?
Antique furniture is very recyclable. No matter how bad the state, don’t dismiss it as unrepairable. We can transform your furniture back to an original well-cared-for antique even if it wouldn’t stand on it’s own legs. An antique furniture restorer uses almost no newly sourced materials. An old vintage chair or table can be revived back to life to go on for decades to come.
Is your furniture looking slightly tired or well-used?
We don’t just provide a full restoration service. Many customers turn to us to simply tidy up the years of good honest family wear and tear on dining tables, chairs, coffee tables and side tables. We repair all the small scratches and revive the existing finish, giving your furniture a new lease of life.
Dining chairs & Side chairs
From a simple single loose joint to complicated dismantling, restoration and complete rebuild. Call us for an immediate quote.
Inherited a treasured but tired antique?
If you are unsure of how to preserve a treasured antique, call us and we will carry out a sympathetic restoration programme, allowing you to treasure it and the memories it gives you for years to come. We have done this for hundreds of clients over the years.
Fire or Flood damage
If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer a disaster, we can provide a full written quotation for the insurers and provide a comprehensive restoration programme for all your furniture.
Are you thinking of buying a tired antique from an auction and are unsure if it can be restored? Take a photograph of it and send it to us or simply send us the auction link and we will be able to advise you on the restoration costs before you buy.
Our professional craftsmen have been apprenticed for over four years and only use the traditional hot melt fish bone glue for all of our antique restoration work. We only use wood from our own extensive antique wood store. We will choose the right species of wood from the right period to retain as much authenticity as possible.
