Restoration

Restoration

Our team utilizes old-world techniques to respect the origin and authenticity of your furniture. We use vintage wood and materials to replace a damaged piece. When doing the finishing, we keep as much as we can of the old patina, or we replicate it.

Wood Carving

Wood Carving

Wood carving is one of our specialties. Our master craftsman Samuel has started his career being a woodcarver and has worked for museums such as Legion of Honor museum, Chateau de Versailles which tells a lot on his savoir-faire.

Wood Turning

Wood Turning

From wheels to commode feet, or a pedestal in the picture image we’ve shared, we can reproduce any piece of turned wood. We have an extensive stock of vintage wood including oak, ebony, mahogany, walnut, maple, rosewood, burls, and more.

Marquetry - Inlay - Veneer Repair

Marquetry - Inlay - Veneer Repair

Wood furniture refinishing and upholstery repair are common requests, but we also restore your brass, mother of pearl, and other inlays. We restore with vintage pieces using the same techniques and supplies as the original craftsman.

Grafting

Grafting

When furniture is missing a piece of wood, we replace it with wood that is the same age and of similar grain or style. Once complete we use antique finishing materials and methods including natural powder, wax, varnish, shellac, fish glue, antique gilding, and more.

French Polish

French Polish

French Polish is an 18th century technique that gives your furniture a beautiful shine.
This technique requires many hours of learning and practice.
We use a natural resin (shellac), mixed with naturalized alcohol, which we meticulously apply with polishing cotton.

Waxing

Waxing

With California’s warm and dry weather, we recommend having your antique furniture waxed once a year. To keep things simple, we come to you to complete the job. We use professional natural wax to nourish the wood and then polish the furniture to make it shine!

Touch Ups - Finishing

Touch Ups - Finishing

Keep your antiques looking their best by touching them up every 10 years or so. We preserve as much of the old patina as we can by using antique finishing materials and methods including natural powder, wax, varnish, shellac, fish glue, antique gilding, and more.

Upholstery - Caning

Upholstery - Caning

Sully restoration works with trusted artisans who specialize in antique seat weaving and upholstery and who are as passionate and dedicated about using old-world techniques as we are (horsehair, tacks, springs...)

Restoring antique furniture is a delicate and highly specialized art form.

Authentic restoration requires tools, techniques, and products that are as old as the furniture we restore. It also requires training as both a craftsman and to ensure an in-depth understanding of the origin and history of your piece.

This goes beyond selecting the same type of wood to repair a missing section to selecting wood that is the same age and of similar grain or style. This is something we achieve with our expansive stock of old wood and veneers including oak, ebony, mahogany, walnut, maple, rosewood, burls, and more.

Finishing and touch-ups also require traditional methods such as French polish, natural wax, and using touch-up techniques that maintain as much of the old patina as possible.

Our workshop can repair and restore your Cabinets, Desks, Commodes, Consoles, Grandfather Clock, Coffee Tables, Nightstands, and More…in any type of wood and any style (American, Italian, French, English…)

We will bring back your objects to their original beauty.
