French Polishing

French polishers are magicians, able to repair and restore furniture, wood paneling and joinery. Our craftsmen offer an extensive range of techniques, including the art of traditional French polishing and modern techniques using the latest technology. Considered to be one of the most beautiful finishes, French polishing is more fragile than modern varnishes and lacquers. It is however easier to repair as the French polish can be blended to match the original patina.

Paint Finishes

Whether you are looking to create a period look, restore interiors or complete a contemporary project, specialist paint finishes add a touch of sophistication to any space. We work closely with joinery specialists and French polishers offering an extensive range of specialist coatings.

Gilding

Artists have been using gilding techniques for centuries to create fine art objects and decorative wall and ceiling finishes. Gilding is a decorative technique used to apply fine gold leaf or powder to solid surfaces such as wood, stone and metal to give a thin coating of gold known as ”gilt”.  Methods of gilding include hand application, gluing, chemical gilding and gold plating.
