Sunnyside Antiques; Restoration and Conservation of Furniture.
All major repairs undertaken including French polishing, insurance work, clock and case repairs, desk leathers and lock & key repairs. Modern furniture repairs also undertaken. Our workshops are in the Scottish Borders and we cover a large area, particularly Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dumfries, Cumbria, Lanarkshire, Biggar, Peebles, Moffat etc. Using nothing but the highest quality materials and understanding that when a special item of furniture becomes either damaged by accident, faded with time, or just general ‘wear and tear’, our customers don’t want it ‘over restored’. Our speciality is to restore to its former glory, without making it look new, paying close attention to patina and value. Click on the thumbnails for examples of our work.

Do we charge for estimates?

For a free estimate all you need to do is email us pictures with a brief description of work needed e.g. whether you require a French polisher, furniture restoration minor repair/repairs etc. We will endeavour to respond to your enquiry within 24 hours: Alternately you could phone us on 07798 640 629, or bring the item/items over for an appraisal. However we recommend you telephone before setting out on a journey.

For written estimates it is usual for us to charge  as it is important to remember that apart from spending time travelling to you, and/or examining your furniture or items, we will be applying our expertise from the start. Sunnyside Antiques will use its expertise and experience to have your items fully assessed and accounted for. However we do waiver the examination/estimate fee if the work is awarded to us. 

Restoration or Conservation?

Restoration aims to bring the object back to its originally intended form with minimal disturbance. Restoration can concentrate on making the item useable, and visually pleasing to the eye with the minimum use of any new materials. All this can be achieved whilst sticking to the original design and construction of the piece, whilst maintaining as many details to the item’s proof of age (patina).

Conservation tends to be about stopping deterioration and preparing an item for protection against the new dangers of deterioration, whilst maintaining the object’s integrity – ie, not changing either its original design or appearance.

When you place an item in the hands and care of Sunnyside Antiques, we will in discussion with you, assess whether a piece requires ‘Restoration’ or ‘Conservation’. Working in this way always meets our client’s wishes and approval.
