We had two large 30-year-old tables refinished and are very happy with the results. Beautiful finish, great color tone and friendly people. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
Took forever to respond to my request for a quote and responded via email. Then called religiously until I picked up my phone. Once I did, they were snappy about how I hadn't responded to their late email. I told them they had taken so long to respond that I chose not to use their services and they were incredibly rude and confrontational about it.
Bernard Mumford and his shop refinished a hundred year old Mason and Hamlin parlor grand piano. It has been in our family since the early 1900's and moved around quite a lot. It was in good shape but needed restoration of the wood, keys and brass. Bernard took it away in May and returned it in August. What a beautiful job he did. It is gorgeous. He worked hard getting the appropriate materials (and when he could not, made them himself). His price was more than fair considering the hours spent in stripping it and refurbishing it. He invited us to the shop a number of times so we could observe the process and make suggestions. Bernard was extremely accommodating. If you have any piece you value but needs restorative work Bernard Mumford is your man.
AFC Upholstery does beautiful work! We contacted AFC to reupholster an antique Duncan Phyfe sofa. They quickly responded within an hour with a competitive estimate for the work and the amount of fabric required (given the fabric repeat pattern). AFC arranged to pick up the sofa -free of charge- within a day and said the turnaround would be 3-4 weeks (plus 1 week to order fabric).When they picked up the sofa, they also noticed damaged webbing on the bottom and recommended repair for a nominal fee. AFC also suggested use of an adjacent shop, 'FabricsForLess' which has a good selection of fabric. To our surprise, the sofa reuphostery was actually completed and delivered within a week of receiving the fabric! We are very pleased with the results and will definitely contact them for other upholstery jobs. The AFC owner and delivery crew were very professional.
