Bringing furniture back to life

Antique Furniture

We work with antiques and modern wood furniture.  No matter what the size, type or value of each item our master craftsmen use their extensive skills to lovingly restore each piece, including broken chairs & tables. We also match colours for spray painting.


From leather to all types of fabric, we repair and renovate to ensure each item looks and feels as good as new.  We carefully match colours and recreate the original quality of each piece.

China, Glass and Curios

We restore a variety of materials including china, enamels, glass, marble, ivory and tortoiseshell.  Our techniques preserve as much of the original material as possible, ensure stability to minimise future damage and are always finished by hand for an invisible repair.

Clocks and Barometers

We restore all types of clock, from Grandfather to mantel, as well as barometers. We replace antique components or craft replacement parts.  Hand-painted or brass dials can be fully restored using original techniques, and all case work is expertly handled.


Our skilled experts perform a full restoration service for varnish removal, surface cleaning, repair and restoration of all artwork from oil paintings to sketches.  We also restore frames, repairing moulding and re-gilding to match the original finish exactly.


From antique to contemporary, our experienced silversmiths give each piece of silver their expert care.  We repair or re-plate any silver item, from christening cups to ecclesiastical pieces, necklaces to cutlery.


We offer a full service to repair, renovate and maintain wooden flooring. Using the latest and most advanced equipment we undertake everything from spot repairs to full sanding and re-coating. We provide an on-going maintenance programme to ensure flooring is kept in peak.
