ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION

Specialist furniture repairs and restoration in the Dorchester and surrounding area.

DECADES OF EXPERTISE

I’ve been undertaking furniture restoration since 1995

When you have antique furniture that has seen better days, restoring it to its former glory is a job best left to the professionals. While a quick DIY repair may do the job in the short term, there’s a real risk that it will do more harm than good in the long term. With a professionally recognised qualification such as, City and Guild diploma in furniture restoration and a lifetime of experience in this field while practising and perfecting my craft behind me, Thomas Furniture Restoration can carry out all manner of antique furniture restoration work to an excellent standard, that I’m sure you will be delighted with. Please send me an email along with a photo of the item to be restored for a free, no obligation quote.

RESTORATION

A little TLC for your antique pieces

Antique furniture can become worn over the years, just like everything else. Often we’re unaware of this gradual process until we suddenly notice how much the finish has deteriorated over time. If you have an item that no longer looks as good as it did, and that might benefit from a careful and sensitive restoration, please get in touch

REPAIRS

From wear and tear to accident damage

From simple scratch repairs to more complex tasks such as restoring worn and damaged joints, I can offer solid and reliable repairs for your antique furniture without spoiling the look or charm of the piece. I undertake all work myself, never sub-contracting, so when you trust me to repair your antique furniture, you can be sure your piece will receive my full attention.

REMAKING

Rebuilding items that have severe damage

For the most severely damaged items of furniture, I offer a remaking service. This involves using as much of the original item as possible and replacing components that cannot be salvaged with bespoke replacements that are made to match the originals as closely as possible.
