FRIEND OF FURNITURE
RESCUE | REFINISH | RESTORE
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.
I highly recommend Friend of Furniture. Deb and Mitch are awesome. they came to my home to look at my furniture and gave some suggestions. In the end they painted two dressers and one night table. Repaired and stained a hope chest made by my uncle 70 years ago. They also used an ombre technique on my make up table and chair. Their attention to detail is unreal! Everything came out gorgeous!
Debbie and Mitch are furniture rock stars! They love what they do and it shows... their attention to detail and love and care for each piece is unparalleled. I got a beautiful hutch that they had refinished into a modern statement piece and we absolutely love it. Their talent and creativity is only second to how nice and accommodating they are. Such a pleasure to work with - highly recommend!!!
I found Mitch and Deb through a recommendation on the Garden City Moms and Dads. They are truly amazing! They brought to life two light fixtures that had hung in my house untouched for God knows how long. They also did an amazing job whitewashing my fireplace and brick pillars. They are kind, punctual and just great people to work with. I highly recommend them!
