We have recently finished working on the Leghorn Bed from the National Trust Property, Mount Stewart, Northern Ireland. This is an eighteenth century house with later modifications and refurnishing from the early twentieth century.

Having dismantled the bed we restored the surfaces and the gilding on both the head and foot boards, as well as the mirror hanging over the bed. New red velvet and silk damask upholstery were fitted to each panel.  Surface damage to the bedside cabinets was treated in-situ. The bed was assembled again along with new hangings by upholsterer David Faulkner (Dublin) and its original canopy.
