Are you looking for a professional furniture repair service around Guildford? Somewhere that will provide you with a top quality, personalised service backed by years of experience in furniture restoration and repair?
Well, at Snelling Associates in Shere, we undertake a wide range of work which extends from restoration of antique and modern furniture through to the repair of objets d’art. To achieve the results that we want (and we are very demanding!) we have a team of superb artisans, all of whom have long years of experience in a wide range of differing skills. This allows us to tackle work that few other repairers would be able to touch – and execute that work to you satisfaction!
Over the years, we have worked with a range of different clients who have included celebrities and professional antique dealers. Furthermore, we have undertaken a good deal of delicate insurance related work where furniture or objets d’art have suffered from fire, impact or water damage. Often this type of work involves repairing or restoring furniture or possessions of considerable emotional value to the owners. Meanwhile the objects of furniture concerned need to be returned to their previous glory and, where possible, value.

Certainly, at our workshops we are able to make repairs to wood, new mouldings and turnings. We can re-veneer and French polish, as well as colour and gild items to look exactly the way they were intended.
