Client Recommendations from Past Customers

We're proud of the quality of furniture services work & customer service that we provide our clients. But don't take our word for the quality of our work. View the below of some of our past clients who have been pleased with our services. And ask to see the original at any time.

We really appreciate all the effort you put into our armoire. It was in such bad condition, we weren't too optimistic. Now, it's not only beautiful again...but a piece we use everyday!

— Mary Ann Childers, Television News Anchor

Jean-Jacques has refinished and restored several Sheraton pieces for me, including a bureau and buffet for my dining room and a small table which is all inlaid. He just recently duplicated a French country table for me, and it turned out beautifully. His work is of the highest quality and craftsmanship, and his knowledge of antiques and fine furniture would make him an asset as a collaborator with the museum. His cheerful personality makes him a joy to deal with, and he works with the clients closely to gain an idea of what they would desire. I highly recommend him.

— Mrs. Virginia Hilton, Cuneo Museum

Jean-Jacques Bernard did a beautiful job refurbishing our kitchen set. I highly recommend him. He was neat, clean & very professional.

— Julie C

I was shocked to discover all of my expensive furniture neglected and damaged by a storage firm. My furnishings were totally water damaged to the point of wood separation and pigment color loss. I realize the task you undertook and I am very pleased with your craftsmanship. This may be a small achievement for you but I was especially impressed with your technique in matching several wood tones on quite large pieces of furniture. I appreciate you warm, honest attitude and your self-pride in your work.

— Christine Page

The table looks very good and I am very happy with your work. Thanks for your speedy action.

— John Hillon

Thanks Jean-Jacques. The pieces you worked on look great. I appreciate the speed of your fine effort.

— Jean Berghoff

Jean-Jacques Bernard refinished a chest of drawers for me. We were well satisfied with the finished piece. Mr. Bernard is a skilled craftsman and I would recommend his services.

— Betty Seid

Thank you for repairing my piano. I am quite happy with your work.

— David Thomas

As an interior designer, I have clients who frequently need furniture repaired or refinished and I am in the position to select a craftsman who I can depend on. Jean-Jacques has done a considerable amount of work for me and all of it has been of the highest quality. He is a conscientious worker, remaining on the job until it meets his own highest standards. I highly recommend him.

— Christena Rath

Jean-Jacques has been finishing woodwork in my home since about the first of the year. The quality of his work is excellent. He conscientiously applies himself to completing a particular job as quickly as the need for care and thoroughness will allow. He is pleasant to work with, and I have been impressed by his willingness to accept hard work.

— John Lashbrook

Jean-Jacques Bernard was the craftsman, woodworker / carpenter / gentleman, who replaced the front door on our 90 year old house, with a "new" old front door. The work required refinishing, matching, and a great deal of fitting, as no two corners lined up, neither on the existing door frame, nor on the replacement door. Jean-Jacques also re-glued and recovered our six dining room chairs, which included the convenience of pick-up and delivery, as well as a job done to perfection. We would recommend Jean-Jacques' work to anyone looking for a professional craftsman. His work is superior, and the attention to detail is especially noteworthy. We would also highlight that our home was left each day in extremely neat condition, a pleasant surprise.
