We also hand make our own waxes and finishes to match existing surfaces.

Custom Reproduction

We can custom reproduce chairs (and tables) to add to existing sets. We can also reproduce some items of furniture from photographs.

Onsite Restoration

Jonathan Burden also offers onsite restoration services. For jobs within the greater New York City area, we can organize a team of restorers to perform a half day or a full day of onsite restoration to your furiture, including general touch ups, polishing and waxing.


For furniture reproduction, restoration services at our premises or for onsite estimates, please call 212-941-8247 or 212-431-5770. We only provide estimates through photographs or in person. You can e-mail small size photo files to and we will get back to you.

Please note: We do not arrange shipping to and from the workshop, but we would be happy to recommend a trucker.
