Antique furniture is an exquisite work of art – hand-made, skillfully crafted, and durable enough to be passed from one generation to the next as a treasured family heirloom. However, the long years of constant use inevitably leave their mark on the delicate antique pieces, resulting in general wear and tear, faded colors, dulled finishes, and even structural damage. The negative impact of time can only be reserved with the help of subtle restoration procedures that can yield the desired result without changing its original character and ruining the natural grain of the wood. Only experienced and skillful craftsmen who have the professional know-how and the creative individual approach required to perform such a delicate work can successfully restore an antique furniture piece without affecting its status as an antique and decreasing its high value.
