Alan’s Beginnings In A Family Of Furniture Refinishers And Furniture Restoration Experts

From the time Alan Karzen was a child, he started going to work with his father at the Atlas Refinishing Service Company on Chicago’s westside.

Alan watched the craftsmen and learned the value of hand-workmanship and fine attention to detail. He quickly embraced an appreciation for the old-world talent required to restore fine furniture by reclaiming its former value and never allowing chemical shortcuts to restore furniture. He saw furniture restorations as a work of art and enjoyed every opportunity to create a masterpiece.

In 1971, Alan made the decision to join his father in the family-owned and operated business. Alan’s goal was to “save and restore” each piece of furniture he could as well as continue the tradition of his father’s company. As a result, he encouraged people to preserve their valued antique or treasured heirloom.
