P ADAMS & DAUGHTER French Polishing

Patrick Adams started this French Polishing business over 50 years ago in Montpelier Hill, Dublin 7.

Today the same traditional methods are all still practised by the company at our new Ballyfermot premises.  They are now combined with new materials and techniques which afford even greater protection to furniture in our modern and greener environments.

The business is now run by Paddys daughter Audrey Adams along with Mark Hughes and a team of other specialist polishers, restorers, gilders and upholsterers.

Adams are a small, well-established firm with over fifty years experience in providing a quality service in this select profession.

We have a wide variety of clients, commercial, corporate and private, involving work on a plethora of disparate projects, which finds us doing anything from polishing antique furniture to polishing modern hotel and pub interiors, revamping kitchens to restoring the doors on Dublin’s famous Christchurch Cathedral.

Our services are tailored to your specific needs and budget, be that touching up damaged woodwork, to the hand-polishing of jaded antiques and surfaces.

We have a long association with the sympathetic restoration and preservation of many of Dublin’s landmark period buildings (as listed under our Clients Section,) where original panelling, staircases, doors and libraries have thankfully escaped the whims of change.

We are called to visit these periodically and attend to scuff marks, scratches, water and heat marks or minor damage, most of which can be dealt with on site.

We provide a fast and efficient restoration service for our clients, undertaking Private and Trade Commissions, as well as Insurance Work and Valuations


French polishing, staining, reviving, gilding, liming, distressing, graining, colouring, spraying or re-finishing – we do it all !
