Breathing new life into much-loved pieces of furniture

Welcome to Thomas Furniture Restoration.  I am based in Piddlehinton near Dorchester but cover a wide area across most of Dorset and Somerset, offering a professional, specialist antique furniture restoration service, that has been well established since 1995. During this time, I have undertaken a vast array of both complex and interesting projects for both trade and private clients. Please contact me today to discuss your project requirements.


I have decades of experience restoring antiques

Thomas Furniture Restoration has been offering meticulous and sympathetic restoration services for antique furniture since 1995. With decades of experience and a passion for bringing these beautiful pieces back to life, I have built a reputation for excellent work. I enjoy a lot of repeat business from satisfied clients bringing their most recent acquisitions to me so I can restore them to their former glory. To find out more about what I offer, please get in touch.


Bringing antique furniture back to life

There’s something wonderful about antique furniture. The classic designs that remind us of another time, the time-worn patina of the finish, the story each piece could tell – it all adds up to something special. If you have a piece of antique furniture that requires restoration work, bring it to Thomas Furniture Restoration. I will repair any damage without losing the charm of the piece.

"I have a desk that needed a new leather top and after much thought decided it would be too much for my DIY skills. The old top was the original I believe but had become worn and damaged over the years. Thomas carried out the work of cutting and gluing the leather after I had removed the old top and prepared the surface. I’m now happy to have visitors to my office again."
