Trust the Chicago & NW Indiana Furniture Repair Experts

Over the course of eighty years in business, Furniture Werks has seen and repaired it all, from well-loved chairs that wobble from years of use to priceless pieces that have suffered a trauma in a move or fall. Trust our craftsmen to take the time and care your piece deserves to restore your pieces to new – or perhaps better than new – condition.

Our Furniture Repair Process

If furniture joints are loose, our experts will carefully disassemble the piece, thoroughly cleaning and removing old glue residue. Then, we reassemble the piece, gluing and clamping to ensure a strong bond. If joints are worn, epoxy is used to fill the space between the pieces and create a solid, more permanent joint.

If your piece has broken legs, arms, seats or tabletops, we will craft a replacement and replace the damage, skillfully matching the species, patina and finish to your piece’s existing wood. After your piece has been completed and returned to you, you can rest assured that the only person who will ever know your furniture has been repaired will be you.
