June 10, 2019
David Burns talks to Mazz Scannell about his trade, generational knowledge and the future of furniture repair.

Inside the front door is a yellow velvet antique button back chair with “Taylor” written on in. “I am waiting for them to decide on what colour they want it covered in,” David says.
