WHO WE ARE
Friend of Furniture is a husband and wife team living out their dream of making sad furniture, happy. They refinish, restore, revamp, rescue, renovate and recycle quality furniture pieces that have endured years of use, but still have lots of life left with just a little furniture artistry TLC. Mitch is a master of mixing and matching stain and can restore an antique to its original beauty. He can also hand weave a caned chair. Debbie is the artist, painter, and design specialist. Together they make sad furniture, and each other, very happy. Visitors are always welcome!
Mitch has been restoring and refinishing antique furniture for over 10 years.
He has delighted many clients with his ability to bring a tired old family heirloom back to its original beauty. In 2019 Mitch began a series of chair weaving classes at The Silver River Center for Chair Caning. His love for chair weaving hit him hard and fast. It quickly became one of the main services offered to his clients. Today, Mitch spends most of his time weaving chairs for clients as well as mentoring others who share his passion.
Debbie is a third generation artist.
Coming from a line of artists of varying forms (painting, sculpture, sketching, and more) Debbie has explored many art forms and mediums through the years. It wasn't until she met and married Mitch that she began her journey, and true passion, as a furniture artist. Today, Debbie spends most of her time collaborating with clients on furniture projects, upcycling great finds, creating abstract art and mountain scenes with alcohol ink, the Zentangle method, markers and paints.
