The British Antique Furniture Restorers' Association

Why choose a BAFRA member?

Our members are all established businesses who are fully accredited and work to the highest standards and ethics. We provide access to many furniture restoration and conservation specialists, including carvers, gilders and rug conservators, and every member has been rigorously assessed and vetted. Benefits of using a BAFRA member include:


Every BAFRA member is an expert in their field and is actively involved in Continual Professional Development (CPD) to keep abreast of advances in knowledge, skills and technical developments.


Every one of our members are required to have a minimum of 5 years' professional experience, although the average is well over 20 years' experience.


Honesty and authenticity are our key principles, and we ensure that all members are fully vetted and must hold appropriate insurance. We also offer a comprehensive complaints mediation service.
