Timothy Warr has been restoring antique furniture from the age of 16. He has always had a love of antiques which stemmed from his grandmother Isabel Corry, who had antique shops in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and London and was a regular face at most of the country's top antique fairs. At the age of 8 Timothy remembers spending hours waxing and polishing furniture for his grandmother in preparation for the opening day of the Dorchester antique fair.
Timothy studied the history of antiques and all aspects of traditional antique restoration and went on to set up his own antique restoration and repair business in 1998. Now based in Staffordshire, Timothy has the skill, knowledge and craftsmanship that comes with years of experience repairing and upholstering furniture. Up until Mrs Corry's retirement in 2008, Corry's Antiques was one of his main clients. Today the majority of his restoration work comes from repeat business and recommendations, which speaks volumes about the quality of his work.
So if your damaged or tired furniture needs restoring or upholstering, why not contact Timothy by calling 01889 504163.
"I had excellent service and attention from this local craftsman. Tim did a superb job of restoring an antique mahogany chest of drawers which had been looking decidedly tired and scuffed. He did this without 'over restoring' so that the character of the piece remained. I couldn't have been more pleased. He also restored a Georgian mahogany chair whose seat had collapsed, making a new drop in seat and re-upholstering it nicely. Everything was done on time and charges were very reasonable. I can't recommend him highly enough"
