Leather Furniture Restoration


Antique Leather Restoration is a delicate task requiring patience and attention to detail. Before work can begin, certain assessments must be made about the leather's condition: Are there mold spots? Ink stains? Cracks or cigarette burns?


After the antique furniture's condition is assessed, the surface must be cleaned, cures for molds, cracks and burns must be applied, and then depending on the circumstances a new finish may be applied.

DF Conservation blends a passion for perfection with tasteful restraint in its antique furniture restoration and antique leather refinishing of period and contemporary furniture, woodwork, and wooden architectural objects. Attention to detail and a respect for the integrity of a piece during the restoration process allow us to retain its original nature as much as possible.
