In addition to the restoration and conservation of period furniture we undertake related services for historic interiors.
Interior Joinery restoration and conservation projects such as the gallery panelling to the chapel at Chatsworth and fine interior joinery at Belvoir castle require a diverse skill set. Alterations and the installation of modern services cause damage to panelling and joinery; this is often in addition to UV damage to surfaces and the more common problems caused by changes in humidity and the accumulation of minor damages.
We provide Conservation and restoration of 16th Century, 17th Century, 18th Century, and 19th Century panelled rooms, staircases and architectural woodwork which are protected by grade 2 grade 1 and grade 1* Listing.

Missing details from interiors such as applied mouldings and carved details can be matched and replaced. Knowledge of period finishing allows the colour and surface to be harmonised whilst retaining the original period finishes where they exist.
Staircases are often excellent examples of interior period joinery and as a result of constant use often require treatment to polished show wood surfaces and replacement of decorative elements.
We have also contributed to important projects involving decorative gilded elements such as the treatment of Giltwood Pelmets and fillets for the redisplay of rooms at Wrest Park. This work combined with the conservation of furniture for display helped to recreate room interiors as part of a major project for English Heritage.
In addition to projects such as these our experience in the conservation of applied decorative carving in the style of Grinling Gibbons and by the hand of carvers such as Samuel Watson at chatsworth and Maine and Young at Burghley allows us to undertake conservation and restoration work to 17th 18th and 19thC interiors with the experience required to cover the diverse requirements of such projects.
