Furniture Repair in NYC?
February 17, 2012 6:49 AM   Subscribe

Our Noguchi coffee table is in need of some serious TLC. Does anyone know a good furniture repair place in NYC that could fix the broken leg and hinge, without overcharging us? We've already tried wood glue and failed, miserably.

Try Sol Ovadia with Prestige Furniture & Design (old NYT link) - He's moved at least once since that article was written so he's tricky to google. But does amazing work and charges reasonably for it.

A fine furniture maker should be charging something in the ballpark of $100 an hour maybe more in nyc. Expect to spend some money if you want a decent repair.

I don't have a repair company per se, but I would try contacting Two Jakes to see if they have any leads.

Go to the 3rd Ward website and look at their list of artisans. You should absolutely be able to find a good woodworker to fix. I wouldn't go Two Jakes - judging by the prices in their store.

Also, if you can provide pictures of exactly what is wrong, some of us may be able to recommend DYI approaches.

I know The Furniture Joint does good work as well, but don't know about the price.

Thanks everyone! I'm following up on these leads. Here is the broken leg in case you have DIY ideas (thanks, spicynuts)

Yikes. Is there a warranty on the table? Have you tried contacting the place you bought it from for suggestions?
