With over 17 years of artisanal expertise, our Los Angeles studio is a haven where vintage treasures are reborn. Here’s a glimpse into our restoration wizardry: • The Art of Transformation: We start by stripping away the old, revealing the hidden beauty beneath. It’s a bit like a glamorous makeover, where we give your furniture a fresh canvas. • Attention to Detail: We’re sticklers for detail. Whether it’s a tiny dent or a noticeable scratch, our artisans work their magic to make them vanish. Each piece undergoes meticulous hand-sanding to ensure perfection. • Wood’s Second Chance: We believe in second chances, even for wood. Our chemical treatments refine the wood, reviving its natural allure. We don’t just restore; we bring out the wood’s soul. • Design Integrity: Every piece has a story, and we respect that. We carefully examine each one for design integrity, making sure it stays true to its Mid-Century roots. • Bringing Out the Grain: Choosing the perfect stain is an art form. We handpick stains that accentuate the wood’s unique grain, adding character and charm. • Lasting Protection: To seal the deal, we apply a protective matte satin lacquer, ensuring your furniture stands the test of time. It’s not just restored; it’s fortified for the future. • Comfort Redefined: The beauty of Mid-Century Modern is timeless, but comfort should be too. We use high-density foam and the finest fabrics and leathers to give you a seat that’s as cozy as it is chic. • Dedicated to Excellence: Our promise is simple: enduring, distinctive, and comfortable furniture that becomes a cherished part of your home’s story. Your furniture’s longevity is our unwavering commitment to you. When you choose one of our restored pieces, you’re not just acquiring furniture; you’re owning a piece of history, meticulously brought back to life by our passionate artisans. Embrace the past, enjoy the present, and let our furniture be a part of your future.
