Our workshop continues to thrive. We’ve just finished making an interesting commission for an oak corner desk. Andrew came up with a clean contemporary design, traditionally made and very much inspired by the past. It looks great and the customer is delighted.

Phase 2 of a major project restoring the oak choir stalls and panelling in Cambridge University’s oldest chapel is now complete. We’re delighted to be repairing and replacing the missing and damaged carvings, and looking forward to making a start on Phase 3 over the summer.

We’re half way through a set of 34 Arts and Crafts oak dining chairs from the same college which are coming through the workshop for repair and reupholstery. We have some very high quality British leather for the seats – it smells fantastic.

What Client’s Say

 

For many years Andrew and Mark have helped me to identify antiques in sale rooms that are good value and genuine and then repaired them as necessary to a very high standard indeed. I have always been delighted with their excellent advice and workmanship. They have also made some wonderful reproduction pieces that have been very much admired by my friends. I am delighted to commend them unreservedly.

I am keen to recommend Andrew & Mark. In my experience good restorers are thin on the ground. Andrew & Mark understand how antique furniture was made and have a sympathy and talent to restore it.
Jess Applin, Applin Antiques
Having acquired a George III desk by Gillows in need of major restoration, I was recommended Mark and Andrew to bring it back to life. They did a first rate job worthy of the Gillows workshops.

If restoration workshops were garages Andrew and Mark’s would be for Formula 1.

We first met Andrew and Mark in 2003 and have come to know their work well. They have undertaken a diverse range of projects for us including antique repairs, design and manufacture of original work, and help in finding antiques.

They seem to know instinctively what is required. We confidently leave each item in their hands and have always been delighted by the sympathetic and very professional results. It has always been a pleasure to do business with them and we look forward to the next time.

I first came across Andrew and Mark in London a few years before they opened their own workshop. They’ve been of great help to me building and maintaining my antique furniture collection. I have the highest regard for their craftsmanship, integrity and honest judgement.
