Best Furniture Repair

Top-of-the-Line
Olek Lejbzon & Co.
210 Eleventh Avenue, eleventh floor; 212-243-3363

Thirty-plus European craftsmen fill this 11,000-square-foot studio. Jobs range from crafting new mortise-and-tenon joints for a handsome teak armoire ($1,300) to rebuilding a Tuxedo-style leather sofa, including hand-tying the springs and replacing worn sections ($4,000).

Cost-Conscious
Joseph Biunno
129 West 29th Street, second floor
212-629-5630 or 212-629-5636


Biunno's got a network of talented artisans who do metalwork, woodworking, and fastidious repair of antiques. Repairing the wooden swivel arm on a delicate antique tabletop mirror was $150; reconstructing the marquetry for a damaged Moroccan table using rare woods was $600.
