Antique restoration

Extending the life of antique furniture is a worthwhile investment. Not only is it a sustainable option compared to purchasing new, but many older well made pieces maintain their value over time. With Lasse's extensive experience in repairing and restoring antique furniture, we will ensure that your piece will be returned to an excellent condition that will last for decades to come. We restore all good quality antiques, mid-century and modern solid and veneer timber tables and cabinets, including Artek, Hans Wegner, Parker, Tapiovaara and Featherstone.

Furniture is resource intense due to production and transport so it should not be purchased to be disposable. If purchasing new furniture it is important to select pieces that are easy to repair and restore. Solid timber with oil and wax finishes are easier to maintain than lacquered surfaces. Ensuring that the structure is solid and able to be disassembled will also make maintenance easier.
