HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

DELIVERY & COLLECTION

Moving antique furniture can be daunting. I’ll make sure that it’s hassle free and your pieces are looked after like my own.

FRENCH POLISHING

A wood finishing technique that became prominent in the 18th century. I am able to revive, or entirely re-polish any piece of furniture you need.

MINOR REPAIRS

Has the veneer split on your beloved side-table? Ring marks left on your dining table by an over-enthusiastic guest?

FREE ESTIMATES

All estimates are free of charge, no matter what work you require. Through email or a home visit I can talk you through whatever solution you require.
