Furniture Restoration and Repair
Stevens Furniture Restoration specialised in antique and modern furniture restoration, with special emphasis on french polishing..
What is Stevens Furniture Restoration’s approach to restoring 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.
If it is an antique furniture restoration or leather furniture restoration, often the approach is what would be most sympathetic to the piece. Our furniture restorers always keep the integrity of the restored furniture piece: we take into account how each antique furniture piece was originally constructed, with it being integral not to over restore furniture.
What furniture restoration and repair services does Stevens Furniture Restoration handle?
Our furniture restorers can deal with practically any problem found during furniture restoration or furniture refinishing. As mentioned, we prefer to retain as much of the original during any antique furniture restoration instead of reconstructing or replacing. However, new components can be made and matched to the original.
These are some of the most common required works:
- Repairing a broken chair leg
- Replacing broken joints
- Securing loose joints
- Securing loose veneer
- Fixing Scratches
- Making new components i.e. carving or machining
- Patching new areas to existing timber
- Making new drawer runners for chest of drawers
- Replacing damaged/missing dust-boards
- Treating woodworm
- Securing structures/carcasses
