A.J. Brett has restored several pieces of furniture for us and we have been delighted with the results. They recently restored an Art Deco dining table and two matching chairs. The suite is bird's eye maple and much loved. The table was damaged by removers and two of the chairs had lost some veneer. When they were returned it was impossible to tell where the damage had been. All of the staff we have encountered have been most courteous and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending the company.
Helen Bernhard, LondonNovember 2017
Many thanks to you and your team for all the fantastic work that you have carried out. You'll definitely be my first port of call when any other items need restoration or repair.

Your team did a tremendous job on the furniture. We are very pleased with the outcome and I wanted to thank you all, and we are not easily pleased! So lovely to see when people take pride in their work and care about what they do. Well done guys!

Having carefully examined the two fauteuils I feel I have to write and say what an incredible job you and your team have done. They really are quite perfect. The painting and the upholstery are magnificent. The springing, the position and the tightness of the fabric, the upholstery nails, the sheer excellence of the upholsterer must be acknowledged. They are a triumph and please be so kind as to convey my admiration and gratitude to all those whose skill is demonstrably beyond compare. I am thrilled and please be assured that I shall be asking your excellent firm to do more work for me in the future.

Our lovely Georgian linen press was in a terrible state, having suffered shocking abuse - broken mouldings, cracked varnish, snapped hinges and horrible hooks screwed directly into the mahogany. A.J.Brett and Co collected it, restored it perfectly and returned it to us with efficiency, charm and exquisite expertise.
James Harris. London SWApril 2016
A J Brett did a great job in bringing back to their original glory my solid oak dining room table and some original 1930's art deco lounge furniture. The damage on one of the chairs has been expertly repaired and it is now impossible to see where the damage was. I would definitely recommend their services.
Alan Goldman - LondonFeb 2016
My wife and I were absolutely delighted with the work carried out by AJ Brett which was of the highest quality and finish. Alan and his team were very helpful and kept us informed on progress throughout. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to restore antique furniture, create new build modern furniture or re-upholster leather sofas.
Tony Hamlin, Kingston, SurreyJan 2015
Everyone at A J Brett did an amazing job on my grandmother's furniture. I had five pieces of furniture restored and one stand built. They all look absolutely amazing. They are the same pieces of furniture, but totally transformed, into new beautiful pieces where I can now see the true wood. Great job.
J. Bardsley - Muswell HillJuly 2014
I have always been extremely satisfied with restoration work undertaken at A J Brett. I would not hesitate in recommending their services to provide a 'safe pair of hands' for the sensitive restoration of a small project or the most treasured family heirloom.
