Antique furniture restoration

Restoring Antique Furniture is the mainstream of our business
We examine, research, understand, and love all pieces that enter our restorers' world and give them all our passion and integrity, bowing to the old craftsmen who created them and the history they represent.
Created throughout the turbulence of history, witnesses to wars and peace, guardians of family secrets, letters of passion, or precious possessions. Survivors of neglect, careless transportation, or old age are part of our lives, bringing grace and refinement to our busy modern reality.
We are privileged to have devoted years of working experience to preserve and protect antiques for future generations.
In a nutshell, there is nothing we would not do to return an antique piece of furniture to its original, glorious state.
The list is so long, it is difficult to mention what we offer as a service to our clients and their antique pieces, to mention
All breaks, cracks, and wood damage, fine joinery, veneer, inlay, marquetry, ivory, ebony, tortoiseshell, and brass inlays
Damage from fire, water, sun, and age
Infestations by insects(woodborer), dry rot, and mold
