Vincent started his career in the famous Brighton Lanes. After several years he established his own business to follow his passion for the conservation and restoration of wood furniture, interiors and buildings. He is a long-standing, fully-accredited member of the British Antique Furniture Restorers Association, (BAFRA). Over the past 25 years Vincent has worked on an impressive array of projects and is currently an annual lecturer at Royal Institute of chartered Surveyors (RICS) and The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, (SPAB). He has also lectured to local planning officers requested by local county councils.
Vincent Reed was established in 1989 as the premier wood conservation and restoration company in the UK. We specialise in restoring exceptional antique furniture, interiors and building work. The vast majority of our projects involve listed buildings and we have extensive expertise in helping our clients to liaise with English Heritage, The National Trust and local authorities. Our philosophy is to respect the age and wear of the material to preserve its authentic patina, whilst conserving and restoring where necessary.
Our services include the restoration and conservation of interiors often on areas such as panelling, flooring, joinery and doors. For interiors where the original woodwork is in disrepair, has been altered or lost entirely, we are able to design and construct new elements that recreate authentic design sympathetic to the heritage of the building. We also offer a consultancy service to advise on larger domestic and commercial projects liaising with project managers, other tradesmen and local authorities.
