Traditional French Polishing

We are Sydney’s French Polishing Experts

Traditional French Polishing dates back to the Victorian times and is commonly found on antique and heritage furniture. The process of a French Polish is extremely labour intensive but it produces a tough and very glossy surface which is far superior than any mass production method. It takes years and a lot of patience to master the art of French polishing, our master craftsmen have learnt their skills over decades with some of our French Polishers having 50 years experience in this very specialised field. We take complete pride in all of our work and we are incredibly meticulous ensuring that the end result will be simply stunning!

Over the years we have restored many beautiful pieces of antique furniture, we treat each piece with care and respect and understand that many of these antique pieces have a sentimental value to their owners. There simply is no better way to bring a piece of furniture back to life by restoring its French polish.

Our French Polishing services include:

Complete furniture restoration

If a piece requires extensive Furniture Restoration due to severe damage and cannot be repaired, we will re-surface the timber by completely stripping and re-polishing.

Minor furniture repairs, general clean-up and revival

If your furniture has minor scratches, heat mark, water damage, scuff marks or is chipped we can touch up the damaged area without having to French Polish the whole piece of furniture. Alternatively if your furniture is just looking a little tired and dull we can provide a service that re-invigorates and revives your furniture or architectural items.

Complete colour change or colour matching

Our team can give your furniture, banister railing, wood panelling or whatever it maybe a completely different look by changing its colour. This can often be a great way of refreshing the item rather than replacing it. In addition our master French Polishers are experts at colour matching and can carry out repairs with an exact colour match or changing the colour of a new piece to match existing furniture.
