Our client is overjoyed with the end result of the restoration and reupholstering of their French style carved chairs.
We had to fully remove the old white coating and then re-gold them by hand with gold rub. They were finished in a clear coating.

Restoring and polishing brings new life to well loved furniture

Our client wanted their well loved furniture restored to bring new life into their living rooms. We carefully rechromed, repolished, reparied and age-painted and varnished to remove the wear and tear and revive and refresh creating a fresh feel in the apartment.

On one piece the procedure was very time consuming due to the very flat and full grain finish.

Our team also aged the Lounge chairs and coffee table, in a blue/white wash finish.

Our team of French Polishers did an exceptional job and the client is very happy with the final results.
