Chair Repairs

Broken? You'd be surprised what can be repaired

Elizabeth Welby – 20/09/17

Fantastic service! Matthew repaired the leg of my antique wooden deck chair. The quality of the work and the skill involved is very impressive. It is almost impossible to see which leg has been replaced. I have no hesitation in recommending his services.

87 years of repairing chairs, and counting…

The most common repairs we are asked to undertake are those relating to loose and broken chairs - especially dining chairs.

While often straightforward, doing so can be time-consuming and requires huge numbers of sash and other cramps.

Whether you've broken a treasured balloon-back or a favourite kitchen chair, we'll be able to make it strong and stable again.

Workshop Opening Hours

PAYING US A VISIT TO DISCUSS A POTENTIAL RESTORATION PROJECT

If you want to pop-in to discuss a potential repair, rather than emailing with photos or telephoning, then please stick to weekdays as our restorers only work Monday to Friday and our general shop staff are not restoration experts.

DROPPING OFF FOR REPAIR OR COLLECTING COMPLETED ITEMS

If we've already given you an estimate for the repair or restoration of your furniture and asked you to bring it into the workshop, you can do so from our Islington workshop, 7 days a week, Monday - Saturday 10-6 and Sundays 11-5. Similarly, if we've completed the restoration and told you it's ready, you can also collect during these times, without appointment.

IMPORTANT - You can't leave items without our having already given you a price and scheduled your work, as our workshop has limited storage space - so please don't bring things in on spec and hope to be able to leave them. You'll get turned away and then be cross with us - and we don't want that ;)

Still unsure?

Not sure if it's something we would restore?

Don't feel embarrassed to ask. If you're not sure what you've got, can't identify the wood, don't recognise the age or period -

don’t worry, that's our job, not yours and we're very good at it too! We're here to provide you with free, honest advice.

We'll tell you what it is, where it's from and whether or not it's worth restoring. We really can restore most things -

you'd be surprised at the state of things we've been able to rescue.
