    French Polishing Services in Leeds & Bradford


    Made popular in the Victorian era, French Polishing is a technique used to restore furniture, giving it a sympathetic finish and deep colour suitable for older and antique furniture.


    More modern furniture requires different techniques and finishes which vary from piece to piece. At Abbey Upholstery and French Polishing, our expert team can help you achieve a premium and brand-new look for your furniture. We work with the piece, keeping it sympathetic to its time and style. For example, as Ercol specialists we know how to retain their trade mark finish and colour. 

    French Polishing Furniture

    At Abbey Upholstery, we restore all types of furniture using a French Polishing method – coffee tables, chairs, tables sideboards, dressers, dressing tables, cabinets and many more pieces of furniture, restoring them to their original glory. We can repair knocks, scratches, heat marks and broken legs, backs and arms plus anything else in between.
