A little bit about owner Bernard Mumford:
Bernard Mumford is the founder and owner of Mumford Restoration. Bernard got his start at the young age of 19 while working as a stone mason. One day his mother, who dabbled in English antiques, approached Bernard to see if he would help repair them on the days he wasn’t working as a stone mason. It was at that moment he had an epiphany—If he worked in a furniture repair shop he could work inside!
Building, repairing and experimenting with basic finishes was a natural fit for Bernard. He immediately realized he had an affinity for the profession and as a result his skills led to referrals from numerous friends and neighbors. One of his first crash courses involved refinishing a few hundred chairs for a friend who was remodeling restaurants.
After attending college for only 3 days, Bernard decided it wasn’t for him. His passion for restoring and repairing old furniture was just too great. Realizing their son’s dreams, his parents gave him the tuition money to buy a piano restoration shop – the first of many lessons that have taught him how to successfully own and operate a furniture repair shop for 32 years.
To this day Bernard continues to focus on their niche of restoring sentimental furniture, upholstery, art, books, brass and silver. Responding in times of tragedy from water, fire or wind, the craftsmen at Mumford Restoration restore your sentimental pieces to their original grandeur.
As Bernard puts it – it’s a wonderful life! He gets to do what he loves – run a successful local furniture repair store and to service the good people of Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill.
