Office Furniture Repairs

Office restoration and repairs of furniture and architectural woodwork requires immediate response, and reliable results. Olek also offers superb results, every time, for the worst damages. If you can see what we have repaired, it has not been done satisfactorily. Whether it is a fancy veneered door, or fine mahogany or anigre architectural woodwork, when a cart or vacuum takes off a corner, our European craftsmen dispatch the damages with Dutchman inlays, and our artists make it invisible. Our craftsmen are generally repairing antique furniture hundreds of years old. Anything that happens in a modern commercial facility is simple by comparision. Commercial facility managers are getting the best craftspeople there are, for routine or extraordinary repair needs, at a competitive price.

Whatever the need, we will take care of the repairs promptly. We have fully restored a 20,000 sq. ft. Fortune 100 executive headquarters in a matter of weeks, all at night and on weekends after asbestos abatement caused severe damages to decorative and wood veneer finishes, without disturbing daily operations and use. Olek has dispatched top level craftsmen to repair a senior executives' custom desk at a top investment bank when a curved modesty panel suffered a 6" diameter hole during a "routine" move. The Facility Manager called us at 4:30pm, beside herself that the top executive not see the damage when he arrived at 6:30am. Our craftsmen spent the whole night fabricating a caul, and relaminating the curved plywood, staining and finishing it to match. It was the only repair they needed, the executive never knew his desk was damaged. We finished our work at 4:45am.

This Newark, NJ Courthouse was starved of funds, and did no maintenance of furniture for almost a century. It suffered innumerable carvings of shackled prisoners idle hands, and required complete rebuilding, of miles of benches, and over 400 chairs.
