Creative Vision with Interior Designers and Decorators, Add The Wills Bisgrove Collection for the Perfect Combination.

‘Hello Wills Bisgrove,

Just a note to let you know we have finally unpacked the sofa, 2 armchairs and upholstered bedheads (and window seat cushion) for the Beach House Project – and to thank you and say how pleased I am with them and how lovely they are. They look beautiful.

I am yet to see the pieces in the most recent order – renovation end now likely to be October – so am looking forward to seeing those too. 

Kind regards,

Nicola Lawrence

Restoration to Original Condition? Trust Wills Bisgrove to Care for your Valuable and Antique Classic Furniture.

For those fortunate enough to own beautiful antique and classic furniture, there comes a time when it’s necessary to restore it, its fabrics, upholstery (springs and wadding) and often the framing to allow for its continual usage and display.
