Professional French Polishers can transform dull, lacklustre furniture into pieces which are rich in colour and shine. If you’re looking for this type of service in London, Prestige French Polishing carry out this method, along with a wide range of other services, including furniture repairs.
Perfect for finely figured wood, French polishing is also considered the best choice for string instruments. Originating in the 18th century, this technique is still one of the most popular for antiques, especially since it’s easy to correct if it goes wrong.
French polishing is most commonly used on mahogany and other expensive woods, and the process is extremely labour intensive. The main material used in this technique is shellac, a secretion which comes from the female lac beetle. This substance is now frequently used in long-lasting nail polishes.
There are various different versions of French Polishing, with the most traditional technique using both shellac and abrasive.
Based in Notting Hill, Prestige French Polishing work throughout West London but can also travel throughout the rest of the city. We can also offer more modern alternatives, with a huge choice of lacquers available.
