The Antique and Fine Furniture Department ensures the functionality of the pieces while preserving their historical integrity. The conservators in this department aim to give each piece they treat the appearance that it has been well-maintained its entire life.
The Antique and Fine Furniture Department pairs a vast knowledge of artisanal construction methods with modern conservation techniques. Our conservators aim to preserve the historic and artistic integrity of both period and contemporary pieces.
The Center’s Antique and Fine Furniture conservators undertake a variety of projects which range from stabilizing structures and surfaces to fabricating missing components. Each treatment is tailored to the individual object, placing special emphasis on structural stability, historical faithfulness, and aesthetic appeal in order to ensure the preservation and functionality of the piece.
