We strip the piece, treat the wood for blemishes, fix loose joints and make sure the item or piece is stable. We inspect the piece for any alterations or missing original and then we proceed to sand the piece by hand or machine. Afterward, we determine the type of wood to use the correct stain; the stain is then applied in layers to keep the wood grain as visible and natural as possible. Finally, we apply a matte satin lacquer to protect and preserve the new finish.
Our experience allows us to identify old finishings and apply the best refinishing techniques in restoring antique furniture, developing our unique restoration methods for mid-century design, thus creating practical solutions to complex problems.
