What our clients are saying :

"I felt extremely lucky to have found Dardonville Furniture Restoration. I had such a unique set of antique Iranian furniture that was given to me and it needed to be restored before it fell apart. After reading Christian's background and professional background, I felt like I had uncovered the one person I could trust with this job. The furniture was handled with such care and dedication to perfection that I could not have been more pleased. I was shocked at how affordable the job was at completion. I would recommend him to anyone who values their furniture. He is an artist and someone whose work I admire. He spends time making sure he understands what the end result is you are wishing to achieve."

"Dardonville Furniture Restoration did a superb job refinishing many pieces of our furniture; some were antiques. The prices were very reasonable, and communication was easy and pleasant."

"A hand-carved antique blanket chest shipped across the country was shattered upon delivery. Christian Dardonville responded very timely with an estimate based on photographs, picked up the chest, repaired/replaced the damaged portions as needed, which included carving portions to match the original, and finished the piece beautifully. The workmanship was exceptional, the cost very reasonable, and the chest was delivered to my home in a matter of weeks. The restored portions of the chest are indistinguishable from the original. Excellent customer service and beautiful work. I highly recommend Dardonville Furniture Restoration and will not hesitate to call them again in the future."
