About Us

frank

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 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.
