Predominantly however we work on pieces from Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire, and we make regular trips to London. We do offer a collection and delivery service so please contact us to find what services we can offer you.
Do you have a piece of antique furniture or a family heirloom that is in need of attention? Let us lovingly restore it back to its original beauty so it can be cherished and receive the admiration that its craftsmanship deserves.
Robert has repaired or restored several pieces of antique furniture for me over the last few years. His work and craftsmanship have been meticulous and totally appropriate for the historical period of each piece.
Robert has worked with us over a period of ten years to an outstanding standard on sometimes quite complex antique restoration and contemporary items. I am delighted to recommend him.
