With more involved furniture restoration projects, our specialist team of furniture restorers have a set analytical procedure, in which each piece of furniture is documented to evaluate the best options for repair.
A common approach of any experienced antique furniture restorer is working out how a piece was first crafted. It is important to follow all the same techniques and materials used, where possible, ultimately seeking the least intrusive procedure, preserving as much of the original as possible, in turn retaining the integrity of the antique piece
Our expertise is very much associated with period furniture this however, does provide a strong foundation for the restoration of many items of fine furniture and objets d’art. We try to maintain a conservation ethos in all aspects of our work.
