British Furniture Restorers

The British Antique Furniture Restorers' Association

The British Antique Furniture Restorers’ Association is a nationwide organisation of skilled people engaged in furniture conservation, furniture repair and furniture restoration. We seek to act as a bridge between qualified conservators and restorers and those whose love of antique furniture requires the highest standards of conservation and restoration.
