Just a few unsolicited testimonials


I sent John some photos of my shabby and battered pedestal desk and he assured me it would look good after restoration. He and his team of restorers worked marvels and John was right - the end result was incredible - the desk looked 'as new,' beautiful - quite amazing! The work was completed in a very short time and the cost was exactly as estimated. A thoroughly good experience

Having worked with John Hubbard on a number of different restoration projects for major insurance companies and their clients, we have no hesitation in recommending Mr Hubbard and his staff.

They have consistently proved that by working in a sympathetic and complementary fashion they have the necessary skills and expertise to bring furniture back to a showroom condition to the delight of their clients.

John, I Just to say what a wonderful job you and your staff did in advising and fitting the new skiver to our Victorian Lion-Headed Green Man desk. Everything about the process was brilliant and we found you most helpful throughout. As you know the round trip was almost 300 miles but it was absolutely worth it! Can't wait to show it to friends and family.

Regards, John and Carole Turner, Dorset


Dear John, I have been restoring antique furniture for nearly 20 years and I must tell you, your service is first class. I ordered a skiver on Wednesday and it arrived this morning, (Friday). I should have known about you years ago. Excellent quality and colour Thank you. I shall be recommending you to all my clients. Hopefully shall have another order soon. Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Regards, Denise Hardwick  Chester.


I just wanted to say how delighted I am with the desk.  The skiver is , as you advised, perfect both in colour and texture. Thank you so very much for going to the trouble of replicating the design around the edge. It was my father's desk and to have it restored to its former glory is not only  aesthetically pleasing but is of significant sentimental value to me as well. 
I particularly appreciated being able to speak to you personally and feel that the individual advice and information you provided was not only helpful but gave me confidence that I was making the right selection. Thank you for providing such high quality service.  I can recommend your company without any hesitation.
With all good wishes. Candace Yaworsky, Amersham, Bucks
