FLOSSOMS ANTIQUES 1981 to 2007
I have known Michael for 30 years and have enjoyed a long association, professionally and as a friend. During the early 1980's, Michael ran an Antiques & furniture restoration business in Sydney's Lower North Shore.
Simultaneously, I had commenced an Antique furniture store called Flossoms and with the help of Michael, Flossoms was soon to become Sydney's largest specialist in Antique Pine furniture.
Michael Colin was proficient in all areas of restoration and his ability to handle the more difficult jobs, his attention to detail and his personalised hands-on approach helped the business of Flossoms become a house hold name on Sydney's North Shore and attain it's reputation as the Antique store to buy quality restorations.
When Michael moved to the UK and set up business there, we seized the opportunity to engage Michael in sourcing, restoring and exporting Antique English Pine Furniture.
Michael not only is an experienced Antique restorer and cabinet maker however also has a wealth of experience as an Antique dealer,so it was possible for Flossoms to rely on his personal sourcing and buying ability.
Throughout the 1990's Flossoms imported some 50 containers of English and Irish Pine Furniture, and many of those containers had been personally chosen and restored by Michael. If you are considering using Michael for a restoration job, I can give you my assurance of the following:
He will give you really good personalised old fashioned hands on service.
Whether your job is a simple rejuvenation, conservation, full restoration or a specialised painted finish, his final result will most likely exceed your expectations.
Michael is one of the few restorers I've encountered who has the skills and know how at keeping your cost down, without compromising the quality.
