Gerry’s classic office desk

Gerry came to Renowned with a vision for a simple but timeless office desk. We sat with him to consult with the various customisations, including sizing, type of timber species and colour, finish, etc.

Here is what our skilled craftsmen came up with, and Gerry was very satisfied and happy with the final results!

Chippendale table Damaged by Water

This gorgeous Chippendale table was damaged by water. We repaired the damage to the foot, sanded it back and refinished it.

After our boys did their magic, this piece is ready to go back home looking clean and brand new again.

Restored Chippendale Table

Often called the Royalty of Antique Furniture, Chippendale furniture create a sophisticated and elegant vibe in any room. If you have the real thing and not an imitation, it is important to always keep it in good condition.

Here’ is how:

  • Don’t place it in direct sunlight, as this can cause fading in the wood’s colour. In addition, avoid placing them near fireplaces or radiators.
  • Putting hot dishes directly on top of your Chippendale furniture is a huge no-no. Use coasters lined with smooth materials like felt because any other may damage or scratch the wood.
  • Maintain its sheen by giving it a regular polish to prevent it from appearing dull and unappealing.

If you have an old Chippendale, call on the experts like Renowned Furniture. We will restore your furniture and return it like nothing happened.

Hayman Island: A Paradise Damaged, Not Lost

Once again, Renowned Furniture has come to the rescue of furniture damaged by water and force brought about by a strong cyclone.

Furniture damaged by Cyclone Debbie

Furniture damaged by Cyclone Debbie

Category 4 Cyclone Debbie hit the Whitsunday Region in North Queensland in March 2017, but 10 months later the damage it caused is still being repaired.

One of the hardest hit areas was Hayman Island. Because of the damage from Cyclone Debbie, Hayman residents are still rebuilding and the resort will not open until late 2018.

Renowned Furniture is proud to be a part of this beautiful island’s restoration. We had been called upon to repair and refinish outdoor chairs and tables damaged by the cyclone.

This was an insurance job that hardly seems like work with a view like this! As you can see, the end result was fantastic.
