Dear Joe,


Thank you for the extraordinary job you did reupholstering my Chippendale Wing Chair. I knew the chair was in good shape; however, it’s 125 years old and I wasn’t sure it was worth the investment.  My grandmother and then my father spent many years, happily reading and snoozing in that chair.  I decided a quality restoration was the only way to go.  You truly did give this chair a “Second Life.  It’s like a fine old Bordeaux wine.  It’s gotten better with age.


Again, thank you Joe.  In this “disposable” society, I appreciate your ability to restore beautiful objects and make them better than ever!


Best regards,


Jill & Don Newman
