A quality piece of furniture always starts with a good hardwood frame—walnut, oak, mahogany, maple, cherry, and others—and with proper care, will withstand years of daily use. Having such a piece restored at SJS Furnishings is a sound investment; the wood alone makes it such. Hallmarks of quality construction are double doweled, mortise and tenon, and wood block joinery.
At SJS Furnishings, your furniture piece is always checked for “motion” in the joints. Quality joinery can be re-glued and restored to mint condition. Furniture with an exposed outside frame can increase in value with age.
If your furniture piece requires refinishing or other repair efforts, Stephen will advise you on the necessary steps. Any repairs and refinishing of exposed wood is done before the upholstering process starts.
