French Polishing in Northamptonshire

For many families in Northamptonshire, homes are filled with cherished pieces of furniture that hold stories and memories close to our hearts. These treasured items, passed down through generations or discovered in hidden corners of antique shops, deserve the utmost care.

When it comes to restoring and reviving these beloved pieces, French polishing stands out as a timeless and meticulous technique.

Masters of French Polishing

As a local, family-run business, John Reed & Son has been specialising in furniture restoration and upholstery for decades, offering expert care and a dedication to preserving the unique character of each piece we work on. Our French polishing service is a testament to our commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

From Preparation to Finishing

Our team manages all preparation work in-house to ensure we achieve the highest standards. By employing top-tier techniques and equipment, we can restore and rejuvenate worn or damaged furniture and fittings of any size, bringing them back to their original condition.

Traditional and Sympathetic Approach

At John Reed & Son, we view antique furniture as artwork, so we strive to maintain its original finish and patina during repairs. If preservation isn't feasible, we carefully strip and prepare the item by hand, followed by a meticulous French polish to return the furniture to its former glory.

Our expertise includes:

  • Specialist wood finishes and treatments
  • Various hand and spray finishing techniques
  • Expert colour matching

High Quality Future-Proofing

In addition to traditional French polishing, our spray booth facility enables us to provide high-quality lacquered finishes. These lacquer finishes offer a more durable alternative to traditional polishing techniques, making them especially beneficial for high-traffic commercial environments. This blend of traditional methods and modern innovations ensures we meet the diverse needs of our Northamptonshire clients.

Time-Honoured Techniques

Many of our processes have been handed down through generations, proving as effective today as they were decades ago.

We even mix many of our own solutions, which outperform off-the-shelf products. And no, we won't divulge our secret recipes!
