“Rupert and his team have become an invaluable restoration resource over the past years; whether confronted with a period bookcase of the early Nineteenth century or a Danish inter-war armchair. We have consistently received helpful opinion from the early stages and subsequent sympathetic, timely and within budget hands-on work.”

Guy Tobin, Rose Uniacke.


“Rupert McBain Studio has been an invaluable resource for the conservation and restoration of Castle Howard. They have worked on a wide range of furniture both on and offsite and their work has always been of the highest standard. They have been a pleasure to work with and always go the extra mile.”

Vicky Howard, Castle Howard.
