Just a little background...

Restored by Hand is a small furniture restoration business, specialising in old and antique furniture and traditional techniques.

Adele is the principal restorer and owner of Restored by Hand; she cut her restoration teeth on beautiful antique furniture at Kent and Kent Antiques, under the tutelage of Richard Kent.

The philosophy at Restored by Hand is to work sensitively with each piece. Working only by hand allows a direct relationship with the timber, reducing the risk of damage through heavy handed power tools. This approach is complimented by use of a natural bees wax finish, applied by hand using a 17th Century technique.

In short, the aim at Restored by Hand is to give life and purpose to an otherwise discarded item through use of sustainable methods and products.
