This cute Silver Ash sofa table was designed by our client as a modern take on an old table they used to have.
We sure get to see some interesting pieces…..This much loved elephant stool had been through the wringer and chewed on by the family dog. We repaired the chips in the seat, gave him back his tusks and touched up his trunk. Good as new…. our client was stunned by the result.
This stool came in for a full restoration. Over time finishes can yellow or darken, and fabric and foam can wear and deteriorate. We stripped back the old finish, refinished and replaced the fabric and foam. This old family piece is looking fresh again and our client can’t wait to start using it again.
We have a few mid-century extension tables in for restoration at the moment. This one held meaning for our client as she remembers sitting at it as a child and wanted it restored so that her own children could enjoy it too. The problem with a lot of these types of tables is that the tops are made from “chipboard” which tends to swell and deteriorate over the years. We re-used the original base frame and solid timber edge and replaced the old top and now it looks as good as new, and will last another generation.
The before and after shots on this oak drop-side side table show that with a bit of TLC you can give most old furniture a new lease on life. Our full restoration process starts with a complete dis-assemble. We then clean-up any hardware and strip the paint or lacquer surface. Once stripped we clean the joints and give all the pieces a full sand. At this stage we complete any repair work that is required and then re-assemble, give it a final sand and put it through the 5 stage polish process. As you can see it is quite an involved process, but totally worth it. The piece once belonged to our client’s mother and they were very happy with the end result.
It pays to have good insurance…..Seamless repair work for our client on their heirloom German-made clock.

Renowned Furniture delivered – A traditional display cabinet with glass shelving, mirrored back and brass hardware.

This was a job that involved making a dining table, a coffee table and a couple of side tables.
The client had existing shaped bench seating in their dining area that they thought would not be cost effective to remove, so they had a table made to fit the space. The larger dining table is stained Victorian Ash and has a 10mm toughened glass top.
The coffee table and side tables were made to match to tie the new table into the existing décor. we actually matched the stain colour to the other furniture in their living area.
