Abbey Group

People are talking!

When our oak dining table was damaged during our move we didn’t for a minute think that anyone would be able to restore it to its former state. The table was a wedding present, and so we are thrilled that you have not only repaired the damage so well that we can’t even tell where it was, but the table looks better than it has in years. I’m sure we’ll be back in future, and will be recommending your restoration services to our friends

Taking Care of Your Antique Wooden Furniture

17th April 2019

 

Is there anything better than a lovely, antique piece of wood? Older pieces have a warmth and a glow to them that new wooden furniture just doesn’t have. That’s called a ‘patina’, and takes many years to develop and build up. With some kinds of wood, it can even take centuries! Even if the surface gets marked or scuffed, all of it add to the character and charm of the piece. But without proper treatment...

Caring for Your Furniture After a Fire

21st February 2019

 

For a lot of us, it’s one of our worst nightmares. Finding our homes full of smoke and fire, watching the fire engine dousing our belongings with water to quench the flames. It’s never a good thing, but house fires do happen. In fact, every year fire and rescue services attend over 167,150 fires, 34,759 of which were house fires. These fires are often devastating, destroying or damaging many things in the home. But some...

Preparing for the Storm

13th December 2018

 

Over the last month we’ve seen hurricane Florence wreak havoc across America devastating homes and lives. And now tropical storm ‘Michael’ is set to become a Cat 2 hurricane read to hit Miami. You might think we’ve gone mad, talking about hurricanes when we in the sunny-yet-soggy England don’t really get hit by them, but bear with us. In England we may not get hurricanes, but we do still get some pretty nasty storms and...

Why Your Hobbies Might Need Bespoke Furniture

9th October 2018

 

If you’ve got a hobby (or someone in your life who has one), then you know they can take up a lot of room. Whether it’s the gamer with hundreds of games piled up by the TV, the knitter with thousands of balls of wool hidden in the cupboard under the stairs, or the DIY lover with tools scattered throughout the garage, hobbies have a way of spreading out into the space around us. That’s...

Caring For Your Antique Watches

29th August 2018

 

Your antique watch has enemies. They include dust, dirt, moisture and shocks, to name a few. It’s also probably mechanical, meaning is has between 200 and 400 moving parts, all crammed into the tiny space between the plates. Antique watches are beautiful, a relic of a simpler time, and often passed down the generations as keepsakes. But left alone, they will struggle to stay working, and you could end up with a non-functioning watch before...

The Do’s and Don’t of Storing Antiques

12th June 2018

 

Antiques are beautiful things. No matter what the item is, they are embedded with a sense of history, depth and beauty that you just can’t get with newly bought items. But despite their beauty, sometimes you don’t want to have them displayed around the house. This could be because it’s too valuable and you want to protect it, you don’t have space or it just doesn’t fit with the rest of your house. Whatever the...
