French Polishing

Refresh your cherished items of furniture and heirlooms.

French Polish

Introduced in the late 18th Century, French Polish was applied to high quality furniture up until about the 1930s when spray finishes began to take over. Although less durable than modern finishes, French Polish is more traditional and has a beautiful, natural look and feel.

We provide a full restoration – going back to the bare wood and ‘re-building’ the finish – to a less drastic ‘refreshing’ of the existing polish, depending on the condition of the old polish.
