Tigers Haven Workshop
I have been an established antique dealer and restorer for over thirty five years. I started working on period oak and mahogany furniture and now enjoy buying and restoring from the 17th to the 20th Century.
We restore period furniture, leather sofas, oject d’art and mirrors, working in all mediums, dating from the 17th to 20th Century for both trade and private customers.
We also take commissions for one off bespoke pieces and are more than happy to discuss any of your requirements.
Unique Bespoke Pieces
We really enjoy restoring beautiful antique textiles and creating unique cushions and wall hangings. Period textiles are very specalised and can be very delicate and we pride ourself in preserving these fragments so they last the test of time. Please do get in contact if you need any items restoring.
Hand Crafted Scagliola Top Tables
Here is an example of one of our scagliola top console tables which sits on a 19th Century bronze & cast iron painted tripod. The scagliola top was made in our Tigers Haven Workshop. This sits on a 19th Century cast iron & bronze base. The three scrolled iron legs, were made by our local Sussex blacksmith. We can create different scagliola tops to suit your requuirements.
Bespoke Oak Dining Tables
Here is one of our large late 19th Century three plank and cleated oak farmhouse table top, which is 3.5 cm thick. This is now sitting on an oak butt which was blown down in the great gale of 1987 in Chapel Shaw Wood, East Sussex. The tree butt is approx 160 years old.
We have spent many years specialising in restoring period leather sofas, chesterfields and arm chairs using tradition materials and techniques.
