About Célia

Celia at Work"I learned the art of furniture restoration fifteen years ago. I attended the renowned “l’Ecole Boulle" in Paris, established in 1886. After graduating, I moved to the UK and worked for various professionals. I learned their methods and developed my own".


My workshop is in Bath and I live in Frome, so my catchment area is quite large. I prefer to work for private clients, as I value the trusting relationship that needs to be developed and the love that you have for the piece of furniture enhances how much pleasure I will have restoring it!

I also have carried out restoration for a variety of clients, including museums, churches, antique dealers shops, the National Trust.


I work in a traditional technique using French polish and "vernis tampon" method. Some of the products I used come from France as I can’t find them in the UK.

I also make my own wax with special organic bees wax mixed with my secret ingredients, giving a unique warm finish. The result of the finish is amazingly better for your eyes and the protection of your furniture.
