Superb quality workmanship. Ian restored our very sad looking yew coffee table back to how it looked when purchased 25 years ago. Excellent service.

An antique chair that has been in the family for a century was in need of some repair and restoration. Ian previously restored a post-war dining table for us three years ago (2014) and we were so pleased with the result, we didn’t hesitate to use his services again. Ian is a skilled craftsman and both restorations have been to very high standards at reasonable prices. Ian has fully repaired the chair and finished it with a tinted lacquer, as requested. It has a fresh look yet maintains its antique appearance. We highly recommend Ian’s work. Thank you Ian.

Ian has done a great job restoring an old oak table that was broken and dilapidated. I would recommend his work as he is a true professional in his trade. The table was over 100 years old and I am sure it will now last another 100years. Thankyou Ian

Ian did an excellent job of restoring the bureau that belonged to my parents and I wanted to keep as a reminder of their lives. Before we gave him the job Ian explained what he would need to do and gave me a detailed written quote. He collected the bureau from our house and brought it back when finished. I am very, very pleased with the result. All in all, excellent service and workmanship. I would definitely recommend Ian.

Ian restored two unique chairs passed down through the family. They were transformed from tired, dull and dirty to two glorious pieces of furniture perfect for the library room they now sit in. I highly recommend Ian's quality of work and Ian as a warm, and gifted craftsman.

Ian made a fantastic job of restoring our family dining room table and chairs. They were old but very loved and used daily. Everyone that sees its new condition comment on the transformation.

Having used his services several times over the past few years, we have always received a courteous and speedy response, with clear details of his prices. The work has always been to the highest standard. No doubt we will be using him again.

Ian restored a couple of chairs for me recently that I inherited including a lovely regency arm chair. Despite the woodworm damage Ian restored the chairs beautifully. I would highly recommend Ian's services and skill.

Ian wall repaired a very delicate sewing basket damaged during a removal ( leg broken off and internal compartments dislodged). Repair almost impossible to see and internal compartments restored to be as good as new.

Standard of work is exceptional, work timely and good value; thoroughly recomended.

An antique fire screen was broken during my house move, wood completely split, pretty badly damaged. First person I went to said it couldn't be fixed however I took it to Ian who has repaired it beautifully, I can't tell that it's been repaired which is extra impressive because of the layers of different coloured wood. Very reasonably priced and completely really quickly. Highly recommend.

Ian really did an excellent job in restoring my oak TV Cabinet. I couldn't of asked for a better service. I was concerned the table I delivered to him would not be repairable but now it's as new as the day it was purchased. Not only was it fixed but to a high standard and for a reasonable price. Thanks again Ian

Ian has undertaken a number of restoration projects for us over the last few years. Each project has been completed beautifully and always with the professionalism we know to expect and rely on with Ian. Projects are always completed on time and within budget. We wouldn't think to use anyone else!

Ian repaired and restored two tables for me, a circular tea table and a hall side table. I am pleased to say they are now restored to their former glory. Ian gives a prompt and very professional service. I shall use his services again and can highly recommend.

I came across Ian by a web search when seeking someone skilled to bring a rather vandalised but otherwise handsome Victorian chest of drawers. He did a great job replacing feet and handles in the style of the original (they'd been 'modernised' - badly), and French polishing to bring a 'problem' piece back to life. Since then I have sought his help to refurbish other items of furniture to a high standard and at very reasonable cost. Ian clearly has a love of his craft and if you have any piece of good furniture showing wear and tear, I do recommend you get his advice, particularly if you are tempted to throw it away - you may find that for a lot less than the cost of new you have a something that enhances your room after all.

Ian refurbished a kitchen table and 6 chairs for us in late 2015. He did a test on one chair so we were happy with the colour and also made arrangements to collect and deliver the items. His communication with customers is excellent, and he was always willing to help. The end result is superb - a 15+ year old dining set looks BRAND NEW and has new warmer and deeper tone. This was a gift when we bought our first house and Ian treated it with the same care and love that we have for it. Cannot recommend his work enough! A great craftsman who clearly loves what he does!

Ian did an excellent and very competitive job on restoring our Edwardian 3 piece suite. The woodwork was bleached in places and dull in others, with the decorative inlay falling out. The suite needed to be completely reupholstered. Ian advised that the previous upholstering was not up to suitable standard and went on to improve it greatly.

Ian produced the job in good time and was always friendly and approachable. Good advice was given and a great result achieved. Ian is very experienced with a high level of competency and works to high standards.

The suite will now give us great use over many years to come.

Thanks Ian, we will definitely come back to you again in the future with another project.

I have used Ian on a few occasions and have always found him to not only be quick and efficient in arranging repairs, but also the quality of his work is brilliant.
I could not recommend him highly enough.

Happy to recommend.
We had some old nursing chairs in need of repair. Ian assessed, quoted and advised in knowledgeable and clearly explained way.
He then did the job to a v high standard, as per quote; and swiftly, too.
Will use again without hesitation.

My mid-eighteenth-century mahogany bachelor's chest had been sadly mis -used and needed expert attention to bring it back to life. Ian Wall's outstanding professional skills enabled that to happen. He found some lovely veneers to replace the top, and cleaned off decades, if not centuries, of inappropriate polishing and finishing to reveal the true colour of the chest. It now has a lovely sheen, and is much admired daily. I would recommend any one to contact Ian for advice and excellence in furniture restoration.

We asked Ian to re-finish a very tired Sixties Scandi coffee table for us - a bit different from his usual line of work on pieces with more age on them - and were delighted with the result, which brought it right back to its original condition. It will give us many years of pleasure, and we have recommended Ian to a number of friends who have furniture in need of a facelift with total confidence.
We have several other pieces of the same vintage which are in a similar condition to the coffee table, or worse, and will be passing them over to Ian so that he can exercise his craft on them too in the next few months. There is no doubt in our minds that the results will be consistent with the first project. Ian is clearly a real craftsman who is capable of a range of restoration work well beyond what we have asked him to undertake, and it is a real pleasure to deal with him.

We asked Ian to restore a badly scratched oak dining table and when it came back it looked beautiful with a perfect colour match and no sign of where the scratches had been. He also fixed the dining chairs that had become very wobbly and are now back in use. We have since asked him to repair a scratched oak chest of drawers and are equally pleased with that. Ian is very professional in his work - he does what he says he will do, for the price that he quotes, in the time he says it will take. We would happily use his services again and recommend him to anyone wanting a high quality job done.
