Iconic Hans Olsen Dining Set, completely restored and reinvented by Mike, with wood replacing original laminate top & leather seats instead of vinyl
Mike is an expert at the complete restoration of mid-century modern furniture. His problem-solving abilities and extremely detail-oriented personality are perfectly matched for the challenge of saving furniture from the ravages of time and use. The deconstructing and rebuilding of countless pieces has given him a deep knowledge and abiding appreciation for the materials and building techniques used in modern design in the middle of the last century. That expertise and experience allows him to bring a vintage piece back to the beauty it had when it was new.
Says Mike, "As I have worked on this furniture, I have developed a deep admiration for the original designers and manufacturers. They strove to envision and build furniture for our modern life, at the nexus of form and function, with clean lines and ultimate ease of use. It is my pleasure to restore their furniture to the level of excellence that they intended."
In his own workshop, and through relationships he has built with other Brooklyn craftspeople, Mike is able to offer a full suite of white glove restoration services.
In order to give the attention to detail that is his trademark, Mike takes only one restoration job at a time.
