“Having used Ludovic for more years than I care to remember, I am in a good position to make an unqualified recommendation for his company. By no means an expert in the field, I recognise expertise and quality when I see them. It would seem that no piece of furniture, ornament or clock is beyond his range. Ludovic is happy to advise on whether a repair is worthwhile in selling terms but will give equal attention to a treasured family heirloom that has little intrinsic value.”
CD – Ely, Cambridgeshire

“I have engaged Ludovic on a number of different commissions over the past four years. These have principally involved the restoration, re-upholstery, sale and purchase of furniture. He has unfailingly demonstrated a high degree of professionalism, competence and integrity. He is easy to do business with, helpful, with a deep knowledge of his specialist areas. I have no hesitation in recommending him.”
RH – Downham Market, Norfolk

“I am writing to thank you for the excellent restoration work you undertook, which is testament to your professionalism and skill. The furniture has been restored beautifully and we are delighted with the results that you have achieved. I am aware of the amount of work involved in the restoration and acknowledge the high level of finish and the care to return our furniture to the highest possible standard. I have no hesitation in recommending your company and the way you carry out your work to any future customer.”

“Thank you for restoring our antique oak chest and chair. Both are much loved family heirlooms which were in need of some tender loving care, after having given various family members a vast number of decades of yeoman service. Your diligent and caring service was instrumental in easing our concerns, and your timely updates regarding the work was extremely reassuring. Should we require any further restorations you shall, of course, be the first person we call.”
JD – Bedford

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful restoration work that you have completed on a grand piano for my mother. The piano, a beautiful Steinway, had suffered multiple re-lacquering over a long period of time and as a result the natural grain had been lost. Through painstaking work over a long period of time you managed to remove each old layer and take the piano back to its original condition and finish. It now looks fantastic, has been retuned and has increased in value. Thank you once again. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my friends, colleagues and clients.”
TH – Peterborough

“I would like to thank you for the recent renovation of our money box. This was not the most valuable or the largest piece of work that you have undertaken I am sure, but the care and attention you gave it was that which you give to all the items you restore. Having visited your workshop and seen the quality of work you deliver I would highly recommend you.”
JD – Peterborough

“I would like to thank you, on behalf of the Methodist Church, for your kind attention to the water damage on our Communion Table. Thank you for attending to the work so diligently and for restoring it to its former splendour.”
MB – North Cambridgeshire

“Thank you for putting life back into my long case clock base, it is absolutely stunning. It has a lovely warm glow to it now. If I need anything restored in the future I shall know who to use, your work is superb!”

“I just wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent work you carried out on our parquet floor. We were very upset when we thought we had lost our beautiful floor due to flood damage. This was especially hard as it had great sentimental value to us, having been in the family for generations. Other companies had either tried or failed, saying nothing could be done, so we thought it was lost. Then you came and looked at it; I felt you listened to what we wanted to achieve and you said it would be possible to repair. Due to the dedicated hard work of you and your team, undertaking the work by hand and proving that real craftsmanship has not died out, we saw our floor come back to life. It was wonderful to watch the process, as you kept us informed every step of the way. You were all really considerate about the way you worked and respected that it was our home. I would thoroughly recommend your company and wish you all continued success.”
