Wood Finishing and Polishing

A. Greenham & Son - A brief history…

In 1884 Alfred Greenham set up his workshop in Tabernacle Street at the edge of the City of London, which at the time was the centre of the thriving furniture trade.

The process of French Polishing on fine furniture was introduced to this country from France around 1825 and Alfred Greenham was amongst the first to use this technique on architectural joinery at the Mansion House in the City of London and the first to apply wax to pine panelling, the results of which can still be seen at No 6 Cheney Walk Chelsea.

Throughout the years, 5 generations of the Greenham family have provided the highest quality service to a distinguished clientele including members of the Royal Family and celebrities, held maintenance contracts for companies such as Dunhill, Asprey, The Dorchester Hotel, Claridges and completed renovation work in numerous government and commercial buildings in the UK and abroad.
