I recently used Gladstone Studios to restore and repair about six items of antique furniture - all scratched, faded and badly water marked. All in all, there was a walnut Georgian chest of drawers plus four Victorian dining chairs and several Edwardian side tables all looking terrible and tired. Catherine, the French Polisher used a number of different techniques from colour matching and waxing to lifting and restoring veneers. The price for all this work was very reasonable and I was absolutely amazed and delighted at the transformation afterwards. They look fantastic, the wood is beautiful and glowing - and I cannot recommend Gladstone Studios highly enough!

Such a pleasure to be the first Gladstone customer, bagging a beautifully renovated/upholstered rocking chair. Seriously good restoration and MUCH admired by my many visitors. It is such a unique piece, as is everything on the website. 100% Very happy

Our new Gladstone Studios purchases look even better in real life than in the photographs. Wonderful presents already being enjoyed. I'll be coming back for more.
