Antique Furniture Upholstery. This is where we shine: bringing classic furniture back to life whether it be antique, vintage, mid-century modern or retro.
No corners will be cut to restore your quality furniture. There will be new webbing, springs, quality foam and of course beautiful new coverings applied. Our craftsmen can repair the timber elements and do careful restoration as well as French Polishing.
Sometimes with pre-loved antique, vintage or retro dining settings some of the chairs may have disappeared over time. So if you see a gorgeous dining setting that perhaps only has four or five chairs and you want a setting for six, don’t despair. We can make new chairs. Just provide a photo of the chair you want made and we will match it.
You may spot a piece of vintage or retro furniture with potential in an OP Shop or on kerbside pick-up but don’t have the skills to re-furbish it. We can help you. We can fully re-upholster and restore that furniture back to its former glory.
Quite often with antique furniture, it’s not just the upholstery that needs attention but also the timber. That’s where you truly need a craftsman. We have a qualified French Polisher on the team who can restore the timber componentry.
French polishing is a wood finishing technique that results in a very high gloss surface, with a deep colour. This is achieved by many thin coats of shellac dissolved in alcohol using a rubbing pad lubricated with oil. French Polishing requires patience and attention to the process.
