"Mitchell and Katie did a fantastic job on my Art Deco sofa and
matching chairs, from helping pick out exactly the right fabric to adding beautiful finishing details. Their knowledge of the Art Deco period showed in their
historically accurate yet modern approach to rebuilding and upholstering these heirloom pieces. Mitchell's work was artistic and meticulous."
Marilyn J., Seattle, Washington


Berkey & Gay Buffet MPF ConservationBERKEY & GAY CREDENZA 1900
Berkey & Gay Side Board"Kate and Mitchell Powell worked with great care
and expertise on our antique Berkey and Gay oak
dining room set, which is over 100 years old.Berkey & Gay Table Dining Chairs
We had 12 pieces restored, including a very large dining room table, eight chairs, a large buffet, a credenza and side board with mirror.
The Powell's' understanding of our pieces, the need for special handling in some cases and their attention to detail was exceptional.
The comprehensive restoration process has really brought our furniture back to life. It now has a vibrant, beautiful patina, and we are elated with the results."
Jeanne S., Portland, Oregon


"Mitchel resurrected a great-grandmother's sofa we thought was lost. Not only did they lovingly rebuild some of the internal frame, they spent hours finding a historic reproduction fabric that was perfect for our house. If this wasn't enough, they documented the history of the piece via a record of past fabrics. We now have a piece of family history for generations to come. Bravo!"
Nancy M, Vancouver, Washington

"Mitchell and Kate did a fabulous restoration on my Arne Jacobson Ant chairs and Drop Leaf Table from the 1950's. They were able to restore my museum quality furniture back to its original quality. I was referred by the Portland Art Museum and their reference gave me the confidence I was looking for."
Harriet M., Portland Oregon

Thanks to Mitchell and Kate I can again enjoy some historic furniture that
I had unwittingly damaged. They are now destined to be part of my
family heritage and to be enjoyed for many years to come.
Their careful restoration has brought the pieces to life again."
Kathryn C., Beaverton, Oregon


Paulin Chair"Mitchell did the most wonderful job of restoring my badly beaten Paulin chairs. He found a good replacement fabric, and took them down to their frames in order to repair the uncomfortable seats in a way that preserves their integrity.
They are so comfy now; I just need to keep my kitties from taking them over!"
Judy P., Ashland Oregon


Italian Polychrome Corner Cabinet"Katie and Mitchell provide outstanding service.
The world of antiques can be intimidating. Watching Mitchell
unwind the mysteries of an item that is 100 - 200 years old is simply fascinating. Katie's artistic talents have improved several pieces
of furniture in my collection. Their recommendations and
insights have given me a new appreciation for my antiques. I will use them again and recommend their services over and over."
Brigitte G, Portland Oregon

"The angel ... will be mounted under museum glass with the glass not touching the beads. I will include your restoration document behind it. Our framer was impressed with your restoration work. Tell Mitchell that my step-daughter is thrilled with the Eastlake chairs. I have confidence she will protect them from damage. Haven't traveled out to my sister's house yet with the big Baroque style chair but I know she will be very excited when she sees it. Thanks again for your excellent work."
Lisa H., Portland, Oregon
