French Polishing and Furniture Restoration

Woodwork in the Home

Many of us enjoy the full beauty of wood in our homes. This may be in the form of antique and reproduction furniture, or architectural timber fittings. Here at Reuben Henry, we undertake restoration to the following:

Home & Interior Fittings

  • Doors
  • Staircases
  • Wood Panelling
  • Dado Rails
  • Skirting Boards
  • Architraves
  • Beams and Fireplaces


  • Tables and Chairs
  • Sideboards
  • Cupboards and Wardrobes
  • Chests of Drawers
  • Desks and Bureaus
  • Bookcases
  • Settees

Whether you require minor repairs, such as loose joints or damaged veneers, or full furniture restoration, we can professionally undertake all aspects.

Commercial Services

Together with the home services outlined above, we undertake larger commercial projects including; refurbishments to period style shops, cafes, museums and historic buildings.

We can arrange, where required, heat and water resistant spray finishes, resulting in a more durable finish.

We are more than happy to liaise directly with architects, interior designers, project managers and contractors. In these situations, full written guarantees and methodology reports are provided.


We can arrange all aspects of furniture upholstery. Whether this is keeping within either the original period or fitting into a more contemporary setting. We can offer simple services such as seat cushions, right through to complete furniture refurbishment.

We are always happy to advise our clients of quality fabric suppliers, but preferably, you should already have your chosen material.

We work for many commercial clients, the most popular being antique dealers, but the majority of our business is acquired through recommendations from satisfied, private customers.
