Meet the team 

Steve Norman

I graduated from Brunel University with a BA Hons in furniture restoration and craftsmanship and then completed a two-year apprenticeship within a small restoration firm. I started my business in 1996 from a small garage, attached to our family home. Some twenty-four years later, I now run a larger workshop, which now hosts a team of experienced craftspeople, specialising in a number of traditional crafts.

Carly joined the business over fourteen years ago after graduating from Ryecotwood College in 2000, with an HND in Furniture Restoration and Craftsmanship. Carly is a very valued member of the team, overseeing all the main restoration repairs. As well as her many restoration skills, Carly also offers a cane and rush seating service.
