Where was I going to get the backs of 4 dining room chairs re-caned? The place I had taken some chairs a few years ago went out of business and I was stumped. I didn't want to get rid of the chairs and buy new ones since they had belonged to my husband's parents and had sentimental value. Fortunately, I found Al at Atlanta Furniture Restoration. He met me at his shop in Chamblee and showed me around. Al has a showroom with some furniture and antiques for sale. More interesting to me, Al has a big workroom where he and others do the work. Al was very specific about exactly what work he was going to do on the chairs. I didn't want to pay extra for him to stain the recaning work and we agreed on that. The chairs were completed in just a few days. I am very pleased with the quality of the workmanship!
I have used Atlanta Furniture Restoration in Chamblee for many years. I find their work to be excellent. I haveantique items from Ireland which this store has worked on and sometimes instead of a refinishing job which I thought was necessary, they will clean and polish and return it almost like the original 100 year old piece. At present they are working on Chippendale chairs c. 1880 – replacing the torn calf leather seats. I would be hesitant to give these precious items to anyone I didn’t have the trust in to handle this job
Al Endel is fantastic at bringing old treasures to life, by enhancing and preserving, rather than glossing over, beautiful patinas. He listens extremely well to understand the history of a piece and what it means to the owner, and then translates that to the work of art that he co-creates along with the original craftsman and the current owner. He has made things happen with furniture and works of art that I thought were impossible. He is also extremely easy to work with, a real gentleman
Al completely refurbished four chairs that had great sentimental value to me and the family. The chairs were old, wobbly, coming apart and the seats & cushions were disintegrating. He did a miraculous job and I can't wait to show them off. They're usable again! He also repaired a bamboo chair with a broken leg and made it usable again also. All this in an amazingly short period of time. Happy to recommend his work!
I took a table into Al that has been in my family for over 60yrs. It wasn't in horrendous shape, but it was a little wobbly & was showing the years. Al had the work completed in less than a week & the table was sturdier than I had ever seen it, and looked like it was brand new. It was my 1st time doing business w/Al, but it won't be the last. Oustanding workmanship at a very reasonable price...
I recently had an antique desk refinished by Atlanta Furniture Restoration. The price was very fair based on other estimates that I received, and the workmanship was excellent. Al Endel is truly an expert in this type of work. The desk has been restored to the beautiful antique that it truly is. I have already referred the company to several friends, and recommend them very highly.
Al and team are truly magic.They performed such a beautiful restoration on a cradle that has been in my family for years...and was in terrible disrepair. As Al put is, It was a resurrection...not just a restoration. I would trust Atlanta Furniture Restoration with Anything!
Atlanta Restoration is AMAZING! Al and his team restored my cabinet doors after they were horribly damaged. Al was very helpful, timely with the repairs and easy to work with. I will definitely refer Al and Atlanta Furniture to everyone that I know!!
Al Endel has restored furniture for me for 25 years! Recently he restored a damaged drawer front, and it looks great! I have referred him to many of my friends, and all have been pleased! He's one of the nicest people I ever met!
Al and his staff perform remarkable work in transforming wood furniture into pieces of fine art. I have used them several times and feel they are the best around!!!!! You couldn't ask for anyone friendlier to work with.
