Restoration Service

At Straffan Antiques, we provide a comprehensive conservation and restoration service that provides a sympathetic and professional approach to your antique furniture by qualified restorers. Our emphasis is on conservation, using traditional restoration techniques and finishes of the 18th and 19th centuries to restore antique items to their appropriate condition.

Over the years we have worked with many important pieces of Irish & English furniture, often made by the finest makers of the 18th and 19th centuries. In addition, we often restore items of great sentimental value irrespective of the item’s monetary value. We take great pride in advising our clients on the steps we believe necessary to revive or conserve your item to its original condition.

Our team of qualified restores are skilled in the following areas: woodcarving, turning, marquetry, veneer work, horse hair upholstery, gilding, French polishing, traditional wax polishing and cabinet making. These are combined with modern conservation techniques to ensure that a period piece will continue looking its best for many years to come.

From a repolishing job or upholstery replacement, our team of craftsmen are ready to give your furniture a new lease of life right here in our workshop at Straffan Courtyard. We will carry out an initial consultation free of charge. We will then provide an estimate of the cost of restoring or conserving your piece and talk you through the process. We will also provide you with aftercare advice to help you maintain your piece in the years ahead.

Contact John or Eoin on 01 627 4018 or at [email protected] to arrange an appraisal of the item you would like restored, attaching if possible a photo of the piece which requires restoration.
