With good quality period furniture we firmly believe in repairing to its original condition and NOT over-restoring.
All our antiques are lovingly hand restored by our expert furniture restorer Paul Slemmonds. This example above is a 19th Century credenza which had many layers of paint that was painstakingly removed to reveal the pattern beneath.
The main lesson we’ve learned along the journey is: Restore for pleasure, NOT for profit!

Wren Architecture comes to Sheen
Paul’s first restoration project was originally built by Sir Christoper Wren in 1696 as the chapel of a girl’s academy in Marylebone and later demolished and rebuilt as a coach house in East Sheen SW14.
