It is very difficult finding really professional, knowledgeable and skilled antique furniture restorers unless you hear by word of mouth. So I
consider myself very lucky to have discovered Johan. I would certainly recommend Johan to anyone who, like me, had valuable or personally sentimental antique furniture they needed skilfully and sensitively restored. At every stage there was good communication and also explanation of costs and what would be involved and why. The other thing I like is that Johan doesn’t ruin the character of a piece by over-restoring it. He explains and listens well.

The quality of workmanship is exceptional; most repairs being completely invisible.You have saved the insurance industry a lot of money with your professional repairs, and made our customers very happy. Your pricing is very reasonable, and quality of service very high. I am very often surprised as to how good workmanship is and how it was done (sometimes doesn’t seem possible). We recommend your service to everyone, as per the reasons above.

Johan, you have done an AMAZING job on my lovely furniture and I am so grateful. I have never, ever known the drawers to work properly, so it is amazing to have them running smoothly and to see all the damage repaired. Poor old secretaire, been shunted from this country to that, so I shall make sure it very very carefully packed this time!
Great job Johan!
