Antique Conservation

Our approach to antique restoration is a purist one. Using traditional techniques and materials, many of which we mix ourselves. Our aim is to remove unsightly blemishes and restore the beauty of a piece without unnecessary damage to its character and patina.

Antique restoration, properly carried out, is quite different from refinishing. In restoration, the goal is to retain as much of the original look and character (and thereby the value) of a piece. On the other hand, refinishing often requires complete removal of the original surface finish.

In some situations, such as when moisture has penetrated beyond the finish into the wood itself, a degree of stripping and refinishing may be necessary. In these circumstances we carefully hand-strip and then refinish using similar processes and materials that were originally used.

The first rule of restoration is to change the piece as little as possible. If any timbers need replacing, where possible, we will use the same wood. We've collected many old timbers over the years, so there's a vast collection to call upon if needed.

Our attitude and our appreciation for the sensitive nature of our craft is reflected in the character and beauty of the piece of furniture that you'll take home with you.
