Whether it is a family heirloom or a part of a museum collection, care is taken to ensure that the historical integrity is preserved. Utilizing both traditional and modern materials, the restoration performed will preserve the piece for the next generation or longer. Our services include all repairs of furniture, finishing in both traditional and modern finishes, woven seating restoration in cane and rush, gilding conservation, and veneer restoration, carving and turning.
