About Us

Our New Office

Since 2004, Furniture Clinic has provided premium cleaning and restoration products and services for luxury home and garden furniture, classic and modern cars, and more.

From humble beginnings in a family garage almost 20 years ago, we now sell over one million products yearly to dedicated customers worldwide.

When you buy Furniture Clinic, you buy more than a product. You invest in our decades of industry-leading experience and truly individual service. We are dedicated to you finishing your projects to an unparalleled quality and with complete customer satisfaction. If it is the finest standard in furniture restoration you seek, there simply is no alternative.

The upcycling and restoration of all things leather, fabric and wood keeps Furniture Clinic at the heart of the circular economy. This positioning is of great importance, alongside our focus on sustainability and preserving the environment, and resounds through all we do.

Our Products

Products

When seeking to spruce up an antique chaise lounge or elevate the interior of a priceless motor vehicle, one cannot risk the potential damage of using subpar furniture restoration products.

We understand this, and guarantee the 100% in-house production of our restoration product range at our 50,000 sq ft factory based in beautiful County Durham.

From product R&D and testing to filling, labelling and capping, our team monitor every step of the process to guarantee our valued customers the utmost quality.

Our products are created with input from expert Leather Restorers, Upholsterers, French Polishers and more, alongside our in-house chemists, R&D experts and general boffins. They guarantee confident use on the world’s finest furniture, yet with a process that’s easily accessible by the most casual of DIY users.

No Furniture Clinic product is released without incredibly stringent testing to ensure British Standards are met, and extensive trialling by our in-house furniture restorers.

Our products are finished to meet the highest professional demands yet, packaged and designed to remain easy-to-use for every home DIY’er and hobbyist renovator.

Our Heritage

Heritage

Since 2004, Furniture Clinic has been the natural evolution of the acclaimed skills of our founder, Keith Staerck.

For many years, Keith produced and sold wood restoration products at shows (including London’s Ideal Home Show). He also ran a furniture upcycling business, developing an excellent reputation in our field.

When we launched, our range consisted of two products: a wood restorer and a leather cleaner. Since then, our offering has grown spectacularly, and currently spans over 100 specialist products across our Leather, Wood and Fabric ranges.

For the convenience of our customers, we champion an online-first presence. In 2005, Keith’s son, Ben joined Furniture Clinic to further develop our digital presence and help us reach more customers around the world.

No other UK entity manufactures as extensive a product range as Furniture Clinic. We take great pride in this, employ over 60 staff in the UK, and support local businesses by sourcing as much of our raw materials as possible from within our shores.

Yet we are also one of America’s fastest growing companies (Inc. 5000) for the past two years, have recently established a new Hong Kong office, and foster bountiful ties with distributors all around the world.

Our Accolades

Accolades

We’re honoured to have received such acclaim from Good Housekeeping and bear their badge on many Furniture Clinic products.

We’re the recipient of Classics Monthly’s Best Leather Cleaner award (ours the only product on test to receive a perfect score).

And our Trustpilot company page features thousands of glowing customer reviews, where we are rated excellent.

In October 2021, we were named as one of the Fastest 50 growing companies in the North East of England.

  • We also work closely with many car clubs to restore historic motors such as the Jaguar XJ-S of Return of the Saint fame and the Jaguar Mk II used in Inspector Morse.
Our Sustainability

Sustainability

Furniture Clinic conducts itself with a deep focus on environmental responsibility. As our products extend the life and upcycling potential of any leather, fabric or wood item, it makes sense that we do all we can to extend the life of our planet!

That’s why our whole product range is made using recyclable packaging, including recycled board packaging. Our factory draws significant energy from a custom 40kw solar panel roof system, and we are currently converting this facility from gas heating to Air Source Heat Pumps to achieve 100% green office functionality.

We will continue to innovate new approaches to maximising sustainability in all we do at Furniture Clinic.
