Restoring a mid-century dining chair
Our restoration team carefully restore then hand weave the rope cord seat of a mid-century dining chair.
Conservation is at the heart of the Mr. Bigglesworthy offering — every piece is thoroughly checked and lovingly restored. There is a focus on preserving the character and patina of each vintage item while ensuring it will display beautifully in a contemporary interior.

Our restoration work is performed on site, by hand, in our Kingsland workshop / studio. For advanced, museum quality restoration we collaborate with some of Auckland’s best restorers who have worked on items for Te Papa and the Auckland Museum.

Early in my career I had to choose between an honest arrogance and a hypercritical humility. I deliberately choose an honest arrogance, and I've never been sorry.
