Antique restoration is based just outside the York outer ring road just off the A64 near to the village of Huntington. Situated in a purpose built and centrally heated workshop, Steven Popple has been creating bespoke furniture for many years.
Equipped to work on all kinds of bespoke furniture projects from the very small to large projects. We have previously been commissioned to work on, secret doors, stair cases, side tables, wardrobes, dining tables, book cases and dressers to name but a few.
We have worked for over 20 years now creating bespoke furniture. Jobs range from replicating an old classical piece of furniture or creating new modern pieces. We have even copied customers items to reinstate a pair where one half of the pair has been lost or they have become separated through inheritance.

Then moved on to work with Farquharson and Baume, Antique Restorers and Upholsterers in Thirsk. Later moving on to run the restoration workshop at The Main Pine company, and then finally on to run the workshops for French House Antiques.
