At Aubert Furniture we are renowned for our high standard of restoration, reupholstry, craftsmanship, and service. Our services include vintage and mid-century furniture restoration and reupholstery as well as fabric supply.
Aubert Furniture was first established in 1997 and we are proud to have been servicing Sydney with high-quality furniture restoration for over 24 years. Predominantly, most of the restoration and reupholstery work we do is for the general public and involves working with family heirlooms.
At the helm of Aubert Furniture, you will find Greg Aubert. Greg is an established antique and vintage furniture restorer with over 34 years of experience in traditional furniture restoration. Greg holds an Australian certificate in Traditional Cabinetmaking and is a leading expert in Australian antique restoration. Greg was formerly Head-Restorer for the renowned Flossoms Antiques of Mosman prior to establishing Aubert Furniture in 1997. Greg works closely with his team of specialised qualified furniture artisans to produce the very best service for the customer every time.
Most of the vintage furniture restoration work we do at Aubert Furniture involves retaining the original finish and patina where possible. We make every effort to conserve the originality, antiquity, and provenance of the vintage furniture we work with. All our restoration techniques are in accordance with international restoration and conservation standards. We don't do commercial spray lacquer polishing. All our polishing is done by hand using traditional techniques like French polishing (Shellac) and hand-applied oil finishes like Danish oil.
We believe that vintage furniture should be reupholstered using the same style and approach that was originally intended for that particular piece where possible. In most cases, we retain and restore things like coil springs, horsehair, and traditional hand-stitched upholstery components. We are experts in traditional reupholstery techniques including rebuilding coil-spring upholstery, hand stitching, diamond buttoning, and frame repair work.
