S.F.R SPECIALISES IN ANTIQUE AND MODERN FURNITURE RESTORATION, WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON FRENCH POLISHING..

What is the approach used by S.F.R. to restore furniture?

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
