The Antique 2 Chic Process
In order to best advise you on how to capture your personal style and the vision for your piece, we will invite you to be part of as much of the Antique 2 Chic process as you wish.

Phase 1: Sourcing the History
Using our extensive contact network throughout the UK we can source a wide variety of antique and vintage upholstery furniture, including armchairs, sofas, dining chairs, stools, chaise-longue and beds, which have graced many periods settings throughout history from Georgian through to Art Deco and the 1950's. Directed by you, we will source the period, style and type of antique you desire. However we are happy to work on an antique already owned by you or one from your own source.

Phase 2: Nurturing the Antique
Once you have chosen your perfect antique, we will explain to you in detail the level of repair and  restoration required and the materials involved in reviving its physical character and heritage, before it can be reupholstered. Using our knowledge and craftsmanship your piece of furniture will be professionally restored using traditional methods and materials. All the work will be carried out in our own workshop and to the highest possible standard.

Phase 3: Inspiring the Chic
Whether you have a particular design or theme in mind, or need inspiration, we will work with you to understand the essence of your personal style. We will then source fabric samples and suggest bespoke designs that work well together, before turning your piece into reality. Your piece can be created with completely custom-made upholstery which enables you to print any design, image or logo made to order on your chosen fabric.

Time Frame, Delivery and Cost
Due to the bespoke nature of the Antique 2 Chic process, the timeframe and cost associated with each piece will vary greatly and will be discussed with you from the outset.

From which ever historical setting, the originality of each antique together with the quality of its repair and restoration will enhance its value, and over time, whether for your own pleasure, or eventual monetary return, your individual piece of Antique 2 Chic will give you the potential to grow a very successful long term investment.

Rent or buy pieces already exclusively designed by Antique 2 Chic
