Restoration & conservation
The delicate art of furniture restoration
Restoring ancient furniture is expert work, requiring extensive knowledge and a complete upholsterer’s skill set. The objective is to recreate the colors, volumes and finishes of a given item in their original condition, or in the precise condition required by the room where the item is destined to be placed. Many museum conservators trust Brazet with the restoration of historic apartments and vintage furniture. Among the most prestigious restorations visible in France are Marie-Antoinette’s Turkish Boudoir and the office of Napoléon III in the castle of Fontainebleau, as well as Empress Eugénie's music room in her residence in Compiègne. In the United States, the Marble House ballroom in Newport, Rhode Island, is yet another great accomplishment.
