Best Furniture Repair

  • Nino WoodCraft Corp.

    330 Tompkins Ave., nr. Greenfield Ave., eighth fl., Staten Island; 718-442-7491

    Whether the problem is just a cigar burn on an end table or a nineteenth-century armoire that needs full-on rehabilitation, Nino Lo Salvio is your man. This sixtysomething craftsman, who’s had his own business for 25 years, is known for his meticulous attention to detail and ability to restore even the most damaged items—including big jobs like brownstone woodwork and doors. He and his workers will hand-carve parts to replace missing details, a service that’s hard to find anywhere. (That’s one reason he attracts high-profile clients, like Madonna.) Turnaround times are surprisingly quick—usually a couple of weeks for an uncomplicated piece, four to six for a whole bedroom set. Don’t worry about hauling your stuff in: He picks up and delivers throughout the boroughs.
