Nice to see you. Why not grab yourself a coffee, sit down and have a good old flick through our pages you will be glad you did.
The Antique Doctor & P. Davies Restoration is one of the UK's longest established furniture restoration & upholstery company's, and we pride ourselves in having built up an extensive following of satisfied clients and a reputation for quality and service that is second to none.
With over 115 years of combined craftsmanship and experience in furniture restoration, we are proud to offer workmanship of an exceptionally high standard. We offer comprehensive restoration services and extensive client consultation during the restoration process.
As well as furniture restoration we also specialise in the renovation of antiques. We work with many clients on furniture that holds a sentimental value from any era – preserving cherished furniture as heirlooms for generations to come.
Many Antique Doctor & P. Davies Restoration clients have inherited family heirlooms and would like to preserve them for future generations. We are happy to offer a free consultation on appropriate restoration for your pieces.
Whether it’s restoring a loved piece to its former glory or updating a piece to reach the desired outcome for all your pieces.
We work closely with our clients to develop a plan and quote for restoration. For some clients this will mean planning period renovation or conservation, preserving the historical integrity of the original. For other clients, this will mean designing a finish or colour scheme to update a piece for a contemporary context. Unlike the modern contemporary furniture of today, much of the antique furniture available in bygone times was built to last especially as buying furniture for many was far too expensive so the pieces that were made then were made to last for many decades if not hundreds of years. We firmly believe that furniture that has been used for generations with or without structural problems is worth refurbishing to achieve a new lease of life. And even those that may take a bit more time and money to restore are worth the effort.
