We enjoy taking old, unloved pieces, and sympathetically restoring them to objects of beauty, whilst still, where possible retaining their character and patina of age. We use traditional methods and materials, and replace any foam within upholstery with cotton fibre padding and coir lining. Here are a few examples of work that we have undertaken.  Free collection and delivery within 10 miles of CT9. Click on the images to view text.

Cane Chair

This cane chair came to us as just a bare, stripped back frame. Re caning is a time consuming job which as a result makes it expensive and often puts people off buying or repairing these lovely chairs. Repairs otherwise to this particular chair were minimal, requiring re staining to even the colour of the wood and French polishing. We then set about re caning the seat which took a couple of days to complete. The finished chair can be seen on our Products For Sale page.
