About us

Touch-up work for yacht interiors.

Art & Interior Restoration was established in 1999 under my name, Richard van Gelder, following years of experience as a designer and engineer in various interior design firms. During this time, I became acquainted with French polishing, also known as Touch-up, primarily carried out by German companies.

For 25 years now, I have maintained partnerships with the same companies and owner representatives with who I began. With a dedicated team, we have transitioned from working solely in the workshop to on-site projects, and I have remained integral to the final stages of each endeavor. Achieving client satisfaction upon project completion remains deeply fulfilling, and it is my responsibility to guide my team towards this goal. Customer satisfaction is paramount for longevity in this field.

Avoid unnecessary experimentation and simply contact me.
If you wanna go through the possibilities, feel free to email me rvgpolish@gmail.com.

Located in the Netherlands, with workshop/office in the netherlands. Vlissingen/Rotterdam and France Antibes. we are almost always around.

You will be amazed what the possibilities are in a short refit period.
Hope to see you soon.

Kind regards: Richard van Gelder
