Veneer and veneering techniques / Horn veneer restoration needed in the NYC area
« Last post by RobT on May 05, 2021, 10:33:10 AM »
Hi everyone, I'm new to the SAPFM. I joined to ask for some advice and guidance.

I recently had some of my parents' furniture shipped from Florida to New York City, where I live. On the way north, the movers did significant damage to the horn veneer desk my father had used for twenty years. They broke all four legs and did damage to the top of the desk as well.

I'm told this isn't a repair job, but a restoration job. I've gotten two estimates -- one from Atlantique Furniture on Long Island, and the other from DF Conservation in Brooklyn -- and I'd like to get a couple more.

Does anyone know a furniture restorer in the NYC area who might have some expertise in horn veneer? Thanks for any suggestions you can share.

I did a drawing for Olde Mill Cabinette Shop of a Chippendale camelback sofa, but it is not listed on their website.  You can contact Bess and ask if it could be made available.  You may not be interested on the style, but the construction details may be helpful.

Good morning/afternoon/evening,


I would appreciate being directed to a source for sofa plans. A Chesterfield sofa and Tight-Back English Roll Arm sofa to be specific. I would like to build those sofa this year for my home.


Thank you
