Bespoke service and traditional craftsmanship
Restoration to Conservation
I have had over 25 years of experience working in the antique trade but my passion for traditional craftsmanship has been lifelong.
After completing a degree in the Conservation of Fine Furniture, I then began a traditional apprenticeship in the Cotswolds before working in the heart of London’s Mayfair where I was given the opportunity to elevate my skills on some of the the best furniture from around the globe.
With enough confidence under my belt, I set out to start my very own restoration workshops within the shadow of Wimbledon Village.
Over 20 years later, I am now located in the tranquil West Sussex countryside where I have my own extensive workshops, bulging restoration stores and an ever growing array of traditional tools complimented by contemporary conservation equipment.
I now have a far greater spectrum of knowledge than I could ever of have expected and I am still enjoying every moment.
Almost all of my long-term and new clients are within Central or Greater London and surrounding counties. On occasion I have found myself completing extensive projects throughout Europe and as far away as the United States and Middle East.
A large and prestigious client base from all around the world
My clients range from longstanding West End antique galleries and 20th Century furniture dealers, to well respected and established international interior design agencies and the occasional embassy. However, amongst this varied crowd I have a wonderful collection of passionate private collectors whom I very much enjoy working with to either look after their collection or bring back to life a new acquisition whether from auction or a cherished family heirloom.
With regular weekly or fortnightly trips into London to collect new projects and deliver completed items in my own ample sized van complete with tail-lift, so I am able to transport larger items of furniture safely.
I find the majority of new client’s stem from word-of-mouth and recommendation.
