Furniture Restoration

Before furniture restoration and French polishing
Furniture restoration is one of Finer Living specialty services. We have undertaken many projects that, on first sights, would seem daunting. From a French dresser to a grand piano, from an escritoire to elegant antique bathroom furniture.

Restoration of furniture is much more than merely gluing old joints back together.

We consider

  • timber selection – Which wood has the rights strength, grain and colour
  • Fabric – does it match the period as well as your decor
  • Furniture – Handles, drawer pulls, brackets – an endless list
  • Stuffing – not the turkey, what style and product is best for the piece

Finer Living started life as a furniture restoration and french polishers so this is the heart and soul of our business. We take great pride in the work we do and guarantee that you will not be disappointed with our work.

As a specific example here is a pice before we restored it…..

And afterwards it looked like this, a big improvement I am sure you will agree.

If you have that favourite item that you thought was beyond repair, why not give us a call

The cost of restoration of a treasured heirloom piece will almost certainly be less than what you will have to pay to replace it with an original example, and in many cases that replacement will be impossible to source.
