Nicola Thwaites Specialist Decorating, London, offers refurbishment of gilded furniture including chairs, consoles, tables, bedsteads, mirrors, picture frames, lamp bases, etc.
Gilded furniture is associated with classically inspired interiors in which gold leaf is used to pick out carved wooden details on furniture and internal architectural features. Gilding is the application of thin sheets of beaten gold or silver onto a solid surface as a means of surface decoration.
In addition to restoring antique and vintage items, we also gild new furniture. We also offer a wide range of distressed paint finishes and antique finishes to give new furniture and cabinetry a patina of age. These finishes are useful for matching in new furniture with an existing interior design scheme or for recreating the look of an old and beloved antique.
We can gild and paint furniture off site or in our studio. We are based in London and Sussex and work regionally and in Europe. We work with interior designers, architects, and private clients.
Feel free to contact us concerning your specialist decorating project.
