Provide All Types of Restoration Services
Accumulation of polish, among other things, will cloud the finish, diminish the appearance of the grain and take away the beauty of your furniture. Restoration is the answer to the problem. Restoration is the cleaning and removing of the wax and grime; leaving the existing finish untouched.
Hand and French Caning
The web is woven by hand, using only authentic, high grade quality materials. Cane is the outside part of rattan, a palm which is imported from India, China, and the Malay Peninsula. All cane is glossy on one side. The glossy side is the top or outside depending on application. For weaving chair seats, cane is available in the following sizes: superfine, fine fine, fine, narrow medium , medium and common.
Fiber & Genuine Rush
Fiber Rush is a man-made twisted paper material that is actually woven all around the chair seat using a method that takes it to the middle of seat. As a material it has a smooth texture; the bottom of the seat looks much like the top, although maybe not as neat. However fiber rush is much less expensive than genuine grass rush. Genuine Rush is a natural hand-twisted material with the same weaving used as that for fibre rush.
Chair regluing is a complicated process: we make certain that the chair is disassembled properly, all the glue joints are cleaned out and the dowels are replaced if needed. We use specialized clamps for gluing so that the finish isn't damaged.
We feature a variety of faux finishes, such as: marbleizing, wood graining, antiquing, crackle, old world finishes, patina and metals. We can duplicate any finish you would like. They can be applied to any article of furniture in order to create something unique and beautiful.
Gold & Silver Leaf
Gold leaf comes in different grades, with pure gold being 24 karats. Most of the gold projects we do are 23 karats or less. We also use silver leaf or white gold. We offer "water gilding" and "oil gilding". Imitation golf leaf and copper leaf are also available. In addition, bronzing and aluminum powders can be used to create very attractive pieces. Come to our showroom to choose from many samples.
Refinishing your furniture, door or kitchen cabinet is a great way to enhance and/or create a totally new look. Once stripped down, you can refinish with the same finish or change it to one of the many we offer. We have hundreds of finishes available to choose from; a sample of which hang in our showroom. Pay us a visit to see the possibilities.

My master bedroom was beautifully restored from an oak set to modern beach washed finish. Pleasant and timely interaction throughout with proprietor.
Refinished my parents dining room table and chairs. Did an awesome job. Very helpful in modernizing without changing too much. I highly recommend them.
Frank did a beautiful job refinishing my 46 year old bedroom set. It looks like a new set!!! I love his work!!!!
Frank is a craftsman!
Went to Frank after he did great work for us 25 years ago! Was not disappointed this time either. Gave him two cabinets that were 120 years old. Beat up and painted black. He returned them to the original (most probably better) condition and finish. Absolutely a work of art that only Frank and his team can do.
SoMa, San Francisco, CA
Used them to refinish the top surfaces of two living room cherry wood end tables and they did an impeccable job. The owner, Frank, is very friendly and courteous, the work was done in just a few days, and the price was reasonable. Highly recommended.
I am very happy to share my experience with Master of Furniture. Frank and his team did a fantastic job refinishing my bedroom set which included a dresser, mirror, night stand and bed with headboard. They came into my home with care and respect. They dismantled the furniture, took it to their shop and returned it and reassembled with the same care. The work was immaculate! The customer service was thoughtful and responsive from beginning to end.
