A.E.Lawrence Restorations

A.E.Lawrence Restorations

We began our jouney in 1982 as a french polishing and restoration workshop based in Nottingham, England.

 

In a world of mass produced items, furniture restoration, refinishing and french polishing are no longer skills purely for antique furniture. To have a family item restored can preserve memories and provide a unique and personal piece of furniture that is both individual and a meaningful part of your home.

 

Repairs, re-veneering, contemporary, vintage or antique restoration, lacquering and polishing are amongst our services. All our work is completed to highest possible standards where attention to the finer detail is the order of the day. We undertake all our quotations on a no obligation basis and are always happy to answer any questions or give advice regarding the care of your furniture regardless of gaining work. We perform a variety of finishing methods and techniques to both period and contemporary furniture. Decorative paint finishes, art, upholstery and making furniture are amonst our skills. Distance is no object whether the job be in our home town of Nottingham, the rest of the U.K or Overseas, we are always happy to quote. To arrange a quotation by email, please see our contact page and include a contact phone number in your message or call us during working hours on the numbers shown.

 

One of our biggest assets is that we really enjoy doing what we do. Hopefully it shows in the work that we produce and in our approach to our customers. Over the last 35 years we have been fortunate to undertake many varied and interesting challenges, long may it  continue!

 

For us french polishing and furniture restoration has never lost it's shine!

Did You Know Piano Facts



Polyester and Pianos.
Polyester began as a group of polymers in W.H. Carothers' laboratory. Carothers was working for DuPont at the time when he discovered that alcohols and carboxyl acids could be successfully combined to form fibres. Polyester as a polish is a three-component paint that utilizes the resin, catalyst and accelerant. Thanks to its tight molecular structure, polyester has a solid content which gives the product superior mechanical and chemical resistance to scratches The application of Polyester finishes requires specialized equipment and machinery to produce a quality product. Polyester is specified when high scratch resistance and 100% sheen are needed.

Cleaning Polyester on Pianos
For everyday cleaning, wipe your piano with a clean, damp (not wet) cloth, followed by a clean dry cloth. If more stubborn soils do get on the finish, you may try dipping your cloth in a mild soap and water solution before wiping, and then follow that with a cloth dampened in clear water, and then the dry cloth.
