Heirloom Furniture Restoration by Wills Furniture – the perfect refurbishment for all Antique and Period Furniture.

Owning a beautiful antique Chaise Lounge or a superb traditional Chippendale Sofa and Armchairs endows a special kind of joy, a pleasure in the rich antiquity and beauty such pieces bring when gracing your living areas. But there is another side to owning these exquisite treasures – who can you trust to maintain, refurbish or restore such valuable furniture? The answer of course is Wills Furniture where skilled artisans, upholstery tradesmen and women will breathe new life and vitality back into your valuable heirloom furniture, whilst maintaining the integrity and original specifications of each precious piece of furniture.

At Wills Furniture, the same time-honoured methodologies used to create your beautiful furniture will be called upon to restore and repair it. Feather down, hand-tied springs, selected timber framing and fabrics and leathers of the same quality and materials. No short cuts, no substitutions.

Heirloom Antiques and well-preserved upholstered furniture can provide a difficult dilemma. Do you repair, restore and reupholster? Or do you simply replace it with new furniture, fashioned traditionally by the same skilled craftspeople and artisans, using the tried and true methods and materials utilised in the original creation of your superb furniture.

Often it comes down to the real condition of the piece being considered. Is it merely cosmetic – fabric, springs, webbing or cushioning? Or is it substantial – the frame, the actual integrity of the piece? For instance, if the frame is insect ridden (wood borers or termites) there is really no purpose in restoring it. In this case the Wills team can advise you of a suitable replacement piece, with the character and style of your existing piece.
