MID CENTURY FAQ's

Buying mid century furniture can seem a little overwhelming. So we have compiled a list of questions we are frequently asked to shed some light on what we do, and how it works.

Everything is restored by us to a high standard.
Most things need some work to them whether that have been bought at auction or from a private vendor. Some just need a clean and polish while others might require slightly more work like French polishing. But everything is done with care and attention to detail.
All items are sympathetically restored to retain and enhance their natural beauty and patina, something that gives mid century its unique character.
With soft furnishings when required the upholstery padding and strapping is removed and replaced in the original way.
For the upholstery we only use high quality upholstery fabrics. We have spent great time and effort sourcing quality fabrics that enhance the furniture, and do not use inferior ones.
leather is cleaned with recommended leather cleaners and nourished to ensure its longevity.
