“The Most Reliable Furniture Restoration in Chicagoland”

Experience & Reputation Makes a Difference

Family owned in Chicago since 1937!

“Alan, it was a real pleasure working with you on the restoration of our antique furniture after the pieces were damaged in a flood. From the initial inspection of the items, to the repairs, to the ultimate final delivery, you were always professional. Your workers were incredible.

The furniture is more beautiful than I could have ever hoped. I would recommend you in a heartbeat. Thank you for making what had been a very difficult experience into a positive one.”

“Alan Karzen Restoration is the only name you need to know when it comes to renewing the life of your family’s precious heirlooms. My grandmother left us with exquisite pieces-not replaceable- and I gave them to Alan to restore. The end result: perfection!

The job was extremely well done, on time and at a very reasonable price. I am glad to tell everyone I know that when it’s special, Alan will take very good care of it and renew it. Thank you Alan.”

“Alan Karzen’s company was hired by my company, Jet Support Services, Inc., to repair and re-stain several very expensive wooden desks. With hardly any mess, he made one of the more battered desks look beautiful and almost new again.

Alan was very professional and completed the job in a timely manner. Alan’s company was able to satisfy all of the partners, including the one with the highest expectations. Extremely easy to work with, I would recommend Alan to anyone.”

“I believe Alan Karzen Restoration is the most reliable furniture restorer in the Chicagoland area. I have a recliner that was badly damaged due to heavy use. Alan Karzen Restoration recovered the recliner and restored it to its original state.

Later, I entrusted my favorite chair to the company. When this chair, manufactured in 1964, was returned to me it was completely restored to its original condition. If I ever need any additional furniture restoration work done, Alan Karzen Restoration is the only company I would work with.”

“Thank you! My story – I had a beautiful, dark oak armoire base that I was moving down a stairs. I watched in disbelief as the cabinet bounced down the stairs and land on its top. The front top corner was MASHED and I mean BAD! I was sick and distraught that this happened. The top and bottom front corners were gouged, chipped and so screwed up I thought I was going to have to trash the whole thing. I can fix some things, but not this. I needed help with this one!

Luckily, I found Alan Karzen and trusted his judgment that it could be repaired. What they did was amazing! Nobody can tell there was ever any damage. Alan and his team did a great job repairing the corner and blending the stain. All the little gouges are gone and it looks terrific. Alan saved my armoire base! Thank you Alan.”
