Conservation

The conservation of furniture is our primary objective. Our aim is to stabilise a piece of furniture from deterioration and prevent any further bouts in the future.

By conserving all original material the pieces historical integrity is always maintained.  

Any item that comes to us for conservation, a full condition report is given with an assessment of any treatment that is required.

This is the foundation where any further work, such as restoration if suitable,would be built on.

Restoration

We cover all aspects of furniture restoration using traditional techniques to bring your cherished family heirlooms back to life.

Aiming to preserve and retain original material and patina. Keeping all evidence of history of age, only adding new material when absolutely necessary. All materials would always be in keeping with the age of the piece and totally reversible.

Any conservation techniques are undertaken as a matter of course as being part of the restoration process.

Full discussion with the client as to the level of restoration that would be suitable to meet their needs. This is then documented and formulated into a quotation.

With all furniture in our care, ethical considerations as regards to their history and personal value are respected at all times.

Furniture Repair

This discipline covers the smaller jobs that clients may feel we may not undertake.

Typically that may be a loose joint, a small area of lifting veneer or the item of furniture may just need cleaning and waxing.

The item may not be old but would still have many years of life, if repaired correctly.

As with the conservation and restoration disciplines, furniture being repaired will also receive the same level of craftsmanship.

If photographs of the damage can be e-mailed, then an estimate can be given to enable you to determine whether the repair would be justified.
