ABOUT

Hi, I’m Pete Mears.

I restore and conserve items from the past and design and create items for the future.

For more than 35 years I have dedicated my career to the finer detailed aspects of antique furniture and giltwood restoration and conservation and with my knowledge, commitment and attention to detail, I have also successfully carried out various reproductions, new commissions and designs of handmade furniture, mirrors and objects. 

One of my own designs and builds, a cigar humidor based on the Hotel Du Vin, Birmingham.

Whilst working with art and antique dealers, auction houses, private clients and furniture makers, I have established personal, friendly and dependable relationships and taken great satisfaction in the successful fulfilment of my client's needs.

All of my restoration, commission and design work is carried out in my own workshops and whilst I still prefer traditional construction and hand finishing techniques, the use of more contemporary methods are used when needed.

Throughout the course of my career, I have also restored many items for Wick Antiques of Lymington, the previous supplier to the Harrods Antiques Department, and had the opportunity to assist in the design, build and participation of various antiques shows and exhibitions, with many of these restored items on display.

And when I'm not working, I like to do this too, a little boat repair.
