|Chi siamo||Fine Furniture Refinishing|
Here at David A. Nores Antique Restoration we deal in both repairs and detailed finishing of all furniture types. We specialize in fine antiques, but often work with pieces that are not considered antique. The bulk of our work is 20th and 21st century American furniture. In many cases, the cost of the restoration far exceeds the value of the piece. Yet, people come in with family heirlooms so there is a sentiment attached and the expense becomes secondary.
When a client initially brings in a piece, we will access the damage and discuss the condition of the piece. We then itemize the cost based on customer needs and furniture condition. The steps involved in the initial consultation, repair and finishing process are necessary to give them a perfect, finished product.
David is a third generation antique furniture restorer. David’s grandfather opened up his first shop in 1925. After apprenticing with his father and grandfather, David honed his craft at the nationally renowned restoration workshop at Winterther, the Museum estate in Wilmington, Delaware.
