Furniture Restoration and Upholstery

Professional, skilled furniture restoration is an integral part of what we do every day. Our goal is to provide beautiful, functional furniture that honours its illustrious past. Our restoration workshop is continuously refining ways to clean and restore while still preserving the patina that quality vintage furniture so patiently acquires.

With our years of experience restoring these vintage pieces, we’ve become quite skilled at removing stains and rings, repairing veneers, tightening loose joints and reapplying upholstery. We especially enjoy discovering creative, long-lasting solutions to individual problems. Almost every piece of Danish / mid-century modern furniture is capable of being restored, no matter the challenge.

Don’t live in the Gold Coast area? No problem. We’ve restored pieces nationwide. Contact us at to discuss your restoration needs, get an estimate and arrange to have your furniture shipped to our workshop.

found’s real point of difference from other upholsterers is our upholstery team. The found team has unmatched expertise and experience with mid-twentieth century modernist furniture.

The area in which we specialise in includes 1950's and 1960's Scandinavian classics (Wegner, Mogenson. Finn Juhl etc), mid-century Australian classics (Featherston, Fler and Parker), deco and mid-century European furniture from the 1920's and 1930's, American (Eames, Knoll) and Italian (B&B Italia, etc), and vintage cane furniture.

The found upholstery department uses fabrics from Australia’s leading fabric houses to ensure the finished pieces sits comfortably and beautifully in contemporary, coastal or mid-century settings. We can also source any international fabric you may be after.
