            Mid-century modern furniture aka MCM, has made a powerful return to our homes and businesses.

            This design, originating from the 1940s through the 1960s, is known for its clean lines, geometric shapes, and tapered legs. It’s become a renewed favorite among designers and consumers, alike. Its versatile, functional, and simple elegance provides a perfect design palette to create beautiful yet practical spaces. Many of our clients have inherited mid-century modern furniture from their parents and are reimagining this classic furniture style to meet their specific design tastes and functional needs. It's also one of the few furniture styles that will increase in value when restored.

            Platinum Level

            Full Restoration

            Our Platinum furniture restoration service is the crème del a crème of our wood restoration services. When we are conducting this service on a piece, we are completely restoring it, in its entirety. From removing the finish by hand, (not dip stripping) to hand sanding, hand staining and finishing. It is a perfect solution for pieces where the wood and finish are severely damaged--the only recourse is a platinum service. This produces a showroom quality result and will last for decades upon decades with proper care.

            • Disassemble

            • Remove all finish by hand

            • Hand Sanding

            Gold Level

            Refinish Top & Refurbish Base

            Our Gold level service includes a complete refinish and restoration of one surface of a piece that may be in poor condition.
            For example, if we were to do a Gold Service on your dining room table, we’d be refinishing the top only and touch up the legs and apply a clear coat of finish to ensure the continuity of color and sheen across the table.

            • Disassemble

            • Hand staining to match color

            • Hardware polished

            Silver Level


            Our Silver level service is ideal for wood furniture with a finish that is still in decent condition and there are no deep scratches or dings that are through the finish into the wood that would require a full restoration. For example, if we did a silver service on an end table, it would include the following:

            • Cleaning

            • Solvent wash/prepare finish

            • Touch up scratches

            • Match color

            • Finishing entire piece, clear coat with lacquer, shellac, oil, or beeswax

            • Hardware cleaned

            Bronze Level


            Our bronze level service is perfect for furniture that only needs minor repairs such as:

            • Minor touch-ups to surface level scratches, dents, or dings in the finish or paint—this can be in your home or in-shop, depending on the severity.

            • Re-glue of a slightly loose joint

            • Minor drawer repair for one drawer
