Patinas are fine for woods and metals, but when it comes to upholstered vintage furniture, sometimes "original condition" isn't much fun. No problem.
At Retrospect, you'll find all your mid-century modern favorites restored to like-new (or better) condition. Owner Laine Scott says simply, "we restore everything." Or, nearly everything. Scott is quick to add that he seldom tampers with "museum pieces."
Mostly, it depends on how the furniture is going to be used. Scott uses all new materials, from the springs to the fabric (some of which is actually unused vintage stock). In addition to pieces for his own shop, he also does restoration work for customers.
