At Geoffrey Warwick we take the conservation of antique furniture very seriously as we believe no body owns an antique but is rather the custodian for future generations.
Conservation can be broken down to three major sections. Preservation, Stabilisation and Restoration. So as to preserve antique furniture we must first investigate the cause of deterioration and ascertain how this can be minimized, we must then stabilise the piece so that it stays in its current condition and finally we must restore in a sympathetic manner so as not to alter the piece.
During Furniture conservation we use only traditional techniques and finishes and any restoration carried out is done so using period materials.
Following our conservation work we supply written reports which record all work or treatment undertaken.
