I have been repairing and restoring furniture for over 20 years and it is my passion. I believe that all pieces, regardless of monetary value, deserve the same attention to detail and work on both antique and modern classic furniture.
“I have been going to Ludovic Potts for furniture and other repairs and restorations for almost 20 years. I went first after seeking recommendations. Ludovic’s name repeatedly came up, I wouldn’t now go to anyone else, for all kinds of reasons. He knows what he is talking about; he has a wide-ranging expertise and is always honest about the options for any individual piece – and he can be refreshingly frank about what is not worth doing. I have always been impressed by the quality of the work, the precise attention to detail and the traditional craft methods he uses. One of his first jobs for us was the restoration of a nice, if not particularly special, Victorian chaise longue. After well over fifteen years of rough treatment it still looks and feels good. It is always a pleasure dealing with Ludovic, and he makes the whole process flexible and trouble free – from first contact to final delivery.”
