Restoration of antique furniture

Contact Atelier 1312 for the restoration, reparation, refurbishment or restoring old and antique furniture. Such as cabinets, tables, chairs, desks, flap secretaries, writing tables, changing tables, drawing tables and seating furniture. But also other wooden interior objects.

The name Atelier 1312 comes from the number of my former workspace in an old chocolate factory where several companies / workshops are located.

Antique restoration

My motto is to restore a piece of furniture in the original state with respect for the history it has gone through. Functionality and usability are the starting point. For me restoration is the combination of usability and the history of the furniture.

For examples, look at the photos with accompanying explanations. If you want to see an overview of restoration work, you can click on antique restoration. In addition to restoration work, I also make new custom furniture. I also perform work on location.

Education

I had my education at the Hout- en Meubilerings College in Rotterdam. A four-year professional training for traditional furniture making with a specialization in restoration. Here I got a good foundation to continue working on it, because I wanted to get a better grip on a number of restoration techniques and to deepen them further.

Over the years I have visited other furniture restorers and furniture makers who were willing to teach me their skills. With this knowledge I have developed my own restoration technique. After years of working experience in an antique business, I started my own studio from 2002.
