When needed, we restore eachpiece to its natural beauty with the help of an experienced Italian restorer from third generation:
“For over three generations our family has been restoring antique furniture as well as 'modernariato'- otherwise know as mid-century modern. To this day, we are still very passionate in our efforts to maintain the same standards of craftsmanship of the original manufacturers when restoring these little works of art.
In our restoration projects we use no industrial machinery, almost all our tools are the very same ones used at the original time of manufacture and throughout the process we follow the original furniture makers' methodology- down to the final layer of varnishing and lacquering.
Although our pieces may appear 'new' after a restoration project, our paramount concern is to maintain the original integrity of the piece as dictated by the designer and manufacturer. With the exception of parts that are beyond repair and may impede every day use - locks, handles and padding- we substitute no parts. And, because we believe every piece has a history and a life story to tell, we leave the smallest imperfections to remind you. ”
