Mark Turner graduated in 1997 from Manchester College of Arts and Technology with 1st Class BA (Hons) degree in Furniture Restoration and Conservation.

After graduation Mark moved to London where he worked for various leading gilding, frame making and furniture restoration companies before setting up his own business in 1999.

In 2004 the business re-located from London to a larger workshop and showroom in Topsham, Devon. This allowed the business to expand into sourcing, buying and selling decorative period antique furniture.

The business has also experienced an increased demand for ‘on-site’ commissions from interior designers including architectural-gilding, modern and traditional wood finishing, decorative paint effects for walls, ceilings and plasterwork, contemporary finishes and paint effects.

In 2012 the workshop moved to its present larger premises. This also provided storage facilities for the large stock of unrestored mirrors and frames including very large items.

At the same time the showroom was relocated to Tetbury in Gloucestershire.  

We hope you enjoy looking at at website and we particularly welcome any calls to discuss in more detail our items for sale and the full extent of our repair and restoration services.
