Specialist Works


When an item is gilded, it is receiving a fine application of gold leaf, and said to be ‘Gilt’. Gilding is a precise process, but it can provide a delicate and appreciative finish to highlight edges and details on furniture and panelling.

We are able to provide a water gilded finish to a wide range of material, from furniture and panelling to plaques and decorative furnishings. Many thanks to Graham Hillman for the gilding photos of Brentwood Cathedral and to the main contractor, Bakers of Danbury Ltd.

At Barfords we realise that many older pieces of furniture will have leather surfaces. Just like wood, leather can benefit greatly from delicate care and restoration. We can work to restore old Leather in desk surfaces, chairs and many more types, restoring the leather in tandem with the wood that frames it.
