French Polishing Timber Panelling

Originally used to keep out cold temperatures, timber wall panelling has gained a reputation and status for being used in higher-end properties and homes. When people think of timber panelling, they usually think of an older building that has class, such as courtrooms, churches or any older antique interiors; however, in today’s age, they are used a lot more in domestic properties than people think. Having glossy timber panelling in a hallway or living area can be seen as expensive, high class and luxurious, which is why French polishing the panels can completely transform the aesthetic of any interior.

Why You Should French Polish Timber Panelling

Timber panelling like other wood surfaces can age over time and lose structural and aesthetic qualities. By French polishing a timber panel, you are ensuring that the visual appeal of the panel itself is stronger than it has ever been. The glossy and shiny finish comes as a result of our polishing services, which are available to our customers, no matter how big or small the project is. 

French polishing can bring new life into your property’s timber panelling. By giving the attention needed to the wall panels, your interior will gain a luxurious look that is often difficult to be matched by more modern substitutions or replacements.

I have used the services of Schryver for over 25 years - in the process of selling over £30m of the finest antique and vintage furniture. They are an excellent all round boutique restoration outfit. Jonny is a pleasure to deal with and always thoughtful and sympathetic in his approach to his work. Also happy to tune price to results. You won’t find better restorers in the UK. Andrew Lamberty.

The team at Schryver are truly professional and work hard to do the very best job possible. They have restored a number of quality pieces for me over the years and each one has been transformed and given a new lease of life. Most recently they have restored a Victorian hall chair that was in two pieces and had sections missing. It’s now just as it should be again.

We were looking for a professional to fix our Eames chair which was falling apart. Luckily enough, after lots of searching, we found Jonny and the team at Schryver, and couldn’t be happier with the job they did. If you’re looking for a true craftsman to repair an Eames chair, or any other cherished piece of furniture, look no further.

Schryver have repaired a Victorian cutlery canteen which had split when I dropped it, and then also created a new cornice for a Georgian tester bed which is an immaculate and accurate match. Workmanship and attention to detail are excellent

I left my McIntosh table with Schryver furniture restorers with some trepidation, wondering how they could transform my teak table to blend in with my oak cupboards. Jonny suggested that they took a cupboard door with them to help with the match. The table was returned transformed. The colour is stunning and the surface has been restored, a professional job. I would not hesitate to recommend Schryver..

Schryver did exactly what was required to French polish and restore a dinning room chair, an inlaid oriental inlaid occasional table and a 19th century French card table to their original glory having been damaged by sun and water; I am delighted. Jonny and Pete were professional, efficient and courteous making the whole process including collection & delivery to London easy. I trust and recommend them and look forward to working with them again on other objects.

What Exactly Is French Polishing?

French Polishing is a technique of exquisite refurbishment and polishing, that dates back to the 1800s and continues to exude a luxury aesthetic to this day. It yields a magnificent glossy and reflective surface on wood, elevating the inherent beauty of precious timbers such as mahogany, while also accentuating the allure of more commonplace woods like Oak and Maple.

The process involves delicately applying multiple thin coats of shellac dissolved in alcohol, utilising a rubbing pad lubricated with oil. In London, French polishing stands unparalleled as the ultimate method to bestow a premium appearance upon your staircase or any wooden furniture, leaving a lasting impression of opulence and sophistication.
