Antique Restoration

Antique Restoration is always performed with the furniture's age and the client's sentimental attachment in mind. Each antique piece is handled differently because each requires unique attention, but some necessities we always attend to are: Fabric, padding, springs are carefully removed and inspected, loose frames or joints are taken apart, glue is cleaned away from the wood and re-doweled and set in clamps, frame is sanitized if necessary, springing system is inspected, and springs retied or replaced if necessary. In addition, padding is inspected and replaced if necessary, and exposed wood is either touched up or refinished (depending on condition of wood and customer's wishes). Some examples of antiques John's has restored are shown here.
