THE FURNITURE SURGEON   &   THE CHAIR DOCTOR        Since 2000 -  "Operations For Antiques & Fine Home Furnishings"
                                                About Us
THE CHAIR DOCTOR and THE FURNITURE SURGEON are founded on the belief that our customer's desires are of the utmost importance.  Our entire team is committed to seeing that the final product envisioned by our customers is realized.  As a result, an extremely high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and their referrals.

I have been in the furniture repair trade for more than 25 years, and have a high level of respect for old craftsmanship.  I have fixed everything from a 120 year old rocking chair with dragon wings from China to a small child rocker inherited from a great grandmother. 
I have restored furniture that was brought to me in boxes and bags . The broken pieces of your furniture can be put back together. All of your furniture can be repaired and made so family,friends and yourself can not see the damage.

The stories that come with the furniture, whether the pieces being old or new, are a delight to hear.  I love looking through the before and after photos, but most of all, it's the look on  my client's faces when they see a cherished item restored knowing it will last generations to come!

We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
