Restoration & Upholstery

Over eighty years of experience means that we can confidently take on any job and complete it to our high standard. There are different ways of treating antiques, in our opinion they should retain their age and colour because this is something that you cannot recreate; some restorers will take the easy route and therefore take off the old polish and in effect start with new wood thus losing all its character.

Within the umbrella of restoration we now have become one of the countries leading experts in hand dyed leather restoration. This is where an antique chair or settee will be stripped down to the bare frame, mended if necessary, then traditionally upholstered and covered in natural coloured leather (a full thickness hide is used). After this it is hand dyed which allows us to vary the colour on different parts of the chair thus giving the look, which is most sought after, new leather that looks old.

We are happy that our product meets the highest standards as it has been taken by Harrods Antiques section, Ralph Lauren, MGM Film Studios and Ronnie Wood from the Rolling Stones.
