Carving & Gilding
In days past, fine furniture was frequently enhanced with carving or gilding, usually done by hand by master craftsmen. Unfortunately, fine furniture can age poorly or become damaged over the years, detracting from the beauty of these ornately carved pieces. At Chandler Restorations, we have the skills to restore your furniture to its original splendour.
We are knowledgeable about the various styles of carving and gilding used over the centuries and can recreate carvings from scratch if required. We use traditional methods like water gilding and oil gilding and source high quality matching original materials. Bringing new life and restoring old beauty to furniture is our passion. We have over 65 years of combined experience and many satisfied customers so you can be confident your furniture is in safe hands.
We are based in Ashford but provide antique furniture carving and gilding to the local area, including Whitstable as well as further afield. Please get in touch today to talk to us about your carving or gilding project.
