Regardless of what condition your furniture is in, chances are we can repair it and give it a new lease of life, saving you money from having to buy a replacement.
We can also carry out Insurance assessment quotes and reports for you should your furniture be covered by your accidental Insurance coverage policy.

French Polishing
French polishing is a very popular finish for fine pieces of furniture, and the application is an ‘art’ in itself.  It is applied in numerous layers of polish until the desired degree of depth is obtained.
French polishing provides an immaculate finish to your furniture whilst enhancing the features of the timber.
The purpose of French Polishing is to seal the timber and helps prevent movement due to moisture absorption.  It wears well, keeps the dirt out and provides a superior finish.
Traditional recipes to make our own wax and shellac polishes, we are able to repair and revive original surfaces or sensitively refinish.
Watermarks and scratches and other damage can often be removed. We endeavour to preserve as much of the original finish as possible, where appropriate.
