Our Furniture Repair Services
Your contemporary and antique furniture can develop a broad range of issues that call for some type of repair. Common examples of these issues include discoloration, stains, cracks, gouges and instability caused by broken or loose joints. Other frequently occurring problems include veneer cracking or lifting, dings and dents, and light, moderate or heavy burn damage. If you have chairs with seats or backs made with caning or rushing, you may also experience problems associated with the breaking, unwinding or unraveling of this organic material.
At Rahn’s Furniture Restoration, we feature a full slate of repair services. Regardless of the repair issues you face, we’ll develop and carry out a meticulous plan that renews your furniture’s appearance and day-to-day usefulness. In addition, our expert staff can completely integrate your required furniture repair into a larger process that also includes an upholstery or reupholstery job. Our expertise also extends to the repair of intentional vandalism of your antique or contemporary pieces.
Our Furniture Restoration Services
While a repair addresses the basic function and look of your furniture, the restoration process goes a step further by bringing back your furniture’s original aesthetic appeal. A light restoration job may only call for the removal of accumulated grime or some other surface imperfection. However, a full restoration may involve a complete teardown and reassembly designed to address all structural and visual elements of your furniture piece.
At Rahn’s Furniture Restoration, we have the expertise needed to develop and carry out all kinds of restoration projects. From simple grime removal all the way up to a comprehensive approach that results in a museum-quality final appearance, we take exacting steps to meet your specific restoration needs and deliver the top-quality results you expect. On every project, we explain the process in detail and make suggestions on the best way to achieve your desired results. Whether your furniture is a financial investment or a family keepsake, we fully support your restoration goals.
Our Refinishing Services
Refinishing is often vital to the appearance of your valued furniture. The required actions in this process can vary considerably. If your aim is accentuation of wood’s natural beauty, essential steps usually include such things as stripping the old finish, sanding, sealing of the sanded surface, the application of some sort of stain, and the application of a protective finish layer. A refinishing job that de-emphasizes wood’s natural appearance may have a number of other important steps.
The refinishing experts at Rahn’s Furniture Restoration have the training and hands-on experience required to apply all types of finishing materials, from the most common wood stains to the most rare and delicate shellac or lacquer. In addition to your antique or contemporary pieces, we can successfully refinish a broad range of items, including doors, built-in cabinetry and outdoor furniture. We can also refinish the woodwork found on many classic cars and trucks.
Mid-Century Modern Furniture
Like neighboring Los Angeles County, Orange County is well-known for its connection to a 20th-century movement in furniture and architecture known as mid-century modern. Furniture from this movement was heavily influenced by early 20th-century trends in avant-garde European arts and architecture, and often incorporates materials then considered unique, such as plastic, plywood and Plexiglas. It takes special expertise to handle these materials during repair and restoration, and providers not familiar with the specific demands of mid-century modern furniture can easily damage your valuable pieces.
Rahn’s Furniture Restoration has extensive experience with the unique techniques required for the successful repair and restoration of mid-century modern furniture. In every case, we pay special attention to the materials used to create your pieces. We also look for specific issues known to affect furniture from this era, including scratches in Plexiglas and joint instability caused by the use of weak glue during original construction. In addition, we make sure that our repairs and restorations use period-appropriate materials whenever possible and retain every detail of the classic mid-century modern look.
