Our History

The Furniture Restoration Center has been in operation since 1969, formerly in White Plains and now relocated to Mount Vernon, taking care of customers' needs ranging from stripping and refinishing, repairs, regluing, chair caning and rushing, reupholstery and the sandblasting, priming and painting of metal patio furniture. We also specialize in the less invasive art of restoration and conservation of older or antique pieces so that the original finish and patina can be maintained, preserving that old and well-maintained look that so many of us appreciate.

Over the years, we've developed a deep appreciation and understanding of the sentimental items left to our customers and treat them with the utmost tenderness and care, realizing that in many cases these items represent someone who has passed.

In any case, whether it be an entire dining room set, Grand piano or just a little doll's rocker, Furniture Restoration Center in Mount Vernon is the place to have it done. In cases that the customer would just like to have it stripped and then finish it themselves, we offer extensive instructions on how to do-it-yourself correctly (a rarity these days).

In addition to furniture, the Furniture Restoration Center is also well known among the trades as a place to br /ing interior or exterior doors, moulding or architectural moulding to be efficiently and inexpensively stripped and neutralized.

We are also a great source to network in finding specialists in various other trades as we keep an extensive database of artisans collected over the years.

The owner and operator, Aniello Imperati keeps regular shop hours of 9:30 AM till 5:00 PM Monday through Friday and from 10:00 AM till 1:00 PM Saturdays.

Aniello stresses it is always good to call ahead so he can be prepared to give you his undivided attention.

Also, be prepared, as one never knows whom you will run into there, maybe your neighbor or some well-known celebr /ity. Apparently, everyone at one time or another goes there. It's one of those best kept secrets in Westchester that has now gotten out of the bag.
