At Wood Poetry, we are happy to help you with restoring your furniture – whether it is old or new or whether it is complete or perhaps in a few pieces. We work with both antique and contemporary furniture restoration projects in either timber or veneer. We are able to work with you to determine the best approach to maintain the integrity of the furniture.
Are you shaking off the storage dust from a family heirloom and wondering what to do with it? Wondering whether there is a beautiful piece of timber furniture behind the cracked paint or the dark stained surface….
Or do you have a contemporary piece of furniture that requires resurfacing to breathe new life into it. Perhaps in a rush of enthusiasm, you started the restoration process yourself – only to discover that DYI furniture restoration projects were not really for you.
The restoration process takes time, skill, sensitivity and bucketloads of patience!! This is the specialty of Robert Steendam from Wood Poetry. He will talk with you to understand exactly what you are hoping for through the restoration of your piece of furniture. Sometimes, that can mean stripping the entire piece back to bare timber before undertaking any repairs and finishes. Sometimes, it can mean co-ordinating upholstery and discussing fabric choices. Always, the process involves hearing the stories behind what this furniture means to you and what you are hoping to achieve through engaging in a restoration process with Wood Poetry.
