Inside an old redbrick Victorian factory, expert antique furniture restorers and cabinet makers Paul Wood and Ned Fitzgerald stock a fascinating range of French antique and early 20th-century furniture including farmhouse tables, beds, chairs and dressers which have been carefully selected from Brittany and Normandy and then lovingly restored. Their team of buyers are always willing to try and source any specific pieces and if you don’t find your perfect bed in stock, they’ll make it for you in the adjoining workshop which specialises in reproduction, and contemporary-style beds. There is a wealth of expertise here and The Bed Workshop should be the first port of call for lovers of vintage furniture.
