News – July Update
Prior to the EU referendum our spring and early summer have had something of an international flavour with restoration projects being exported to the Far East and Europe, as well as plenty of work closer to home, including Scotland… we hope they stay with the rest of the U.K. Alongside our work restoring classic examples of mainly British antique furniture, we continue to see a steady interest in iconic designs from the 20th century which are coming in to us for repair.

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.Roger Dalzell, Cambridge
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.Mark Bagnall, Geneva
If restoration workshops were garages Andrew and Mark’s would be for Formula 1.OCFP, Oxfordshire
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.Pat and David Billington, Lancashire
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.W.H, London
