Through affiliated business interests, we also provide custom reupholstry using a wide range of fabrics and fine leathers. With roots in Grayslake, Illinois, projects have been completed for a loyal customer base located across the Chicago metropolitan area.
Brad started his career in wood furniture refinishing in 2000 when he worked under the apprenticeship of Mr. Dan Griffith of Griffith Furniture Restoration located in Grayslake, Illinois. After Dan left the business, Brad continued to refine his skills and knowledge of fine wood furniture by completing a certification course in historical preservation of furniture from the Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount, Minnesota, one of the centers of woodworking technology in the United States. After studying with a former Smithsonian Curator, Brad returned to the Chicago area to further refine his craft as a Production Manager for Griffith Furniture Restoration.
As of July 2012, Brad purchased the assets of Griffith Furniture Restoration and under the Brad’s Furniture Restoration banner, is continuing to provide fine care and refinishing of quality wood furniture for a growing customer base.
