Frank Tedeschi started his career in wood restoration with his family in Long Island City, New York. His love for beautiful furniture came to him at a young age, as his mother was always a lover of Italian Antiques. Through her love for one-of-a-kind furniture and hand carved details, she taught Frank the value in wood and the meaning behind an artisans craftsmanship. Together, they started a modest family collection which eventually grew into a passionate career, and now 40 years later a family-owned and operated furniture & antique restoration business in New York.
Never forgetting the work involved in hand crafting furniture, The Refinishing Company grew around these two core values: never compromise on honesty and quality work. These values, along with Frank’s staffed artisans is what makes The Refinishing Company stand out against the crowd as a professional New York furniture & antique restoration company. His years of experience has fortified his relationships and allowed him and his men the opportunity to work along side some of the industries top professionals. A few major clients The Refinishing Company is proud to have serviced are; PVH Corp. (Calvin Klein boutique, New York City), The Associated Press Building, and Rockefeller Center. Along with Stanley Steamers, many interior designers, decorators, architects, industry wood workers and cabinet makers.
Although no job is too big or small for our experienced New York furniture & antique restoration company, Frank has a soft spot in his heart for restoring family heir-looms, I guess he has his mother to thank for that.
Frank is an old-world master craftsman. This large table had been in my family for 4 generations, and was in awful shape – wobbly, water-stained, and in places worn through to bare wood. Frank and his crew strengthened and beautifully refinished the table and all 8 of its leaves. His work was done exactly as requested, on-time, and for a reasonable price. He also strengthened and refinished 6 very wobbly and stained Queen Anne chairs to match the table and to no longer wobble. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. If you have a nice piece of furniture that needs work, he’s your man.
Provided, refinished, and rebuilt an antique secretary (desk) for me. Difficult job, since it had a lacquer finish on it. Lovely guy, sensible and easy to deal with, and the work was fantastic. I cannot recommend Frank more strongly. It did take a while to finish, but that was okay with me.
I was just over the Robleto’s home and took a look at the furniture you worked on, it looks amazing! Myself and the client are very happy with the work done and I also wanted to say thank you again for working with us regarding timing and such. We have many projects coming up in the future and we would love to use your services again. I will defiantly reach out to you when new work arrives.
Frank refinished 2 oak chairs we had purchased at an antique vendor out east (Long Island). We supplied him with a sample stain color of a separate oak table to match with the chairs. We were exceptionally happy with the results. The chairs were part of a wedding shower gift and we could not have been happier. We will use their services again and would recommend Frank to anyone wanting to have furniture refinished.
Working with Frank was a pleasure! In this world where it is difficult to get contractors to even show up let alone be fair and reasonable. Dealing with Frank was a breath of fresh air, he showed up when he said, did quality work, for the agreed upon price. Most of all he can be trusted and has to utmost integrity.
We were very pleased with the end results, Frank refinished my kitchen cabinet doors and they matched the color to the kitchen boxes exactly, our cabinets are 25 years old and they look like brand new. Thank you Frank, an absolutely wonderful job.
The workers who have come into our home (painters, floor re-finishers, etc.) have commented on what a beautiful job that you have done on our windows, banister and doors. We couldn’t be more pleased.
Frank was pure pleasure to work with. He is the consummate professional and the furniture we asked him to refinish looks like it’s brand new. The piece is 100 years old! This man went above and beyond for us and in the end we now refer to him as an Artist! You simply can’t go wrong here. I would highly recommend him.
You are truly a special person. Please know that this is a fine tribute to your wonderful and generous spirit. Thank you from the bottom of my heart…please rest assured that now a real piece of your artistry will reside in Alaska, a very beautiful place, for a very dear person.
