A Leading Name
Alexander Christian is a family-run business that has earned a respected name as a specialist company providing quality, and reliable furniture repair and restoration.
We work with some of the leading names in the furniture industry and are proud to have a strong working relationship with the North Wales Trading Standards, of North Wales, which values our opinion and expertise.
We understand that it’s become a habit over many years for people to dispose of various pieces of furniture when they become worn out or damaged, rather than improving or fixing them.
However, there are two more obvious solutions for these kinds of often much-loved pieces - furniture repair or restoration.
Repairing an item of furniture is all about making the piece functional again. Restoring, on the other hand, is the process of making the artefact look as if it was a brand-new piece.
Both of these processes require a great deal of skill and patience, and that’s not something that every craftsman necessarily has.
Managing Director Christian Elwell began his apprenticeship at an early age, continuing the family heritage and tradition of cabinetmaking, furniture restoration and French polishing.
These skills date back to the 18th century in the cotton mill industry in West Yorkshire and have been passed down to him through the generations. Christian’s father was a cabinetmaker, while his great grandfather was a French polisher and cabinetmaker.
With his vast reservoir of knowledge and expertise in these highly skilled and technical areas, he provides valid, pertinent and impartial advice on a wide range of furniture issues.
At Alexander Christian, we provide a comprehensive and in-depth range of services to a broad client base, including manufacturers, retailers, warranty and insurance companies, independent businesses and individuals and the private sector.
Our professional team of craftsmen can work on a vast array of repair and restoration projects for furniture pieces such as worktop counters, stone and ceramic tables, beds, cabinets, and a lot more. Our other services include cabinetmaking and kitchen design and installation.
In addition to that, we offer consultancy and training services to clients to facilitate the development of new strategies and methods for furniture restoration.
At the same time, our knowledgeable team in furniture manufacturing and production can perform independent inspection reports and analysis to address any issues like manufacturing faults.
This impartial service is made available to consumers, manufacturers and retailers, saving them time and effort of going through third parties like the furniture ombudsman.
Furthermore, we also conduct design, electrical, upholstery, fabric and leather fault assessment and repair services throughout all stages of the furniture production process, from design to manufacture.
Our independent and expert opinions can be commissioned by retailers and consumers for the purposes of resolving complaints, acting as an independent mediator.
We have compiled over 25,000 reports, earning the reputation of being the UK’s leading assessors and repairers.
Seeking out assistance from an experienced and reputable craftsman in furniture repair and restoration is imperative if you’ve decided to have the work carried out on a precious or valuable item.
With expert craftsmanship, furniture pieces can be returned to their original condition, and will be fully useable once again if required.
From repairing wooden furniture to restoring family heirloom pieces, the team at Alexander Christian can skilfully and lovingly take care of it.
Whether you require these types of service or are simply looking for refurbishment, repair or restoration of any piece of furniture, we are more than happy to provide our outstanding and dedicated services. Get in touch with us today.
