FR Review:
Peter Salamonski trained on the job with some of the best craftsmen in his native Poland before coming to America in 1989 and establishing A.R.S. Antiqua. In fact, some of Salamonski’s work can still be seen in prominent museums in Poland and inside the Royal Castle in Warsaw.

Today, Salamonski and his team of four specialize in restoring fine antique furniture, including veneer work, inlay and marquetry. The firm can work with any type of veneer or finish, and is well-versed with the French polishing technique, as well as with the more contemporary use of shellac and lacquer. At the 5,000-square-foot workshop, pricing is by the piece, with typical restoration commissions running from $400-3,000 per piece. The fi rm regularly does conservation and maintenance projects for clients’ valuable antiques at an hourly rate.

A.R.S. Antiqua works mostly in Manhattan but also ventures into Brooklyn, the Hamptons and Palm Beach. A solid reputation and excellent results–and Salamnoski’s laid-back attitude–draw delighted clients back to his shop for repeat business

Representative Client Comments:
“Will use over and over.” “Great skill coupled with years of experience—you can’t beat that.” “Solid prices for excellent work.” “Wonderfully efficient.” “It was wonderful dealing with Peter, he corresponded with me via email and telephone promptly.” “He had repaired a piece of my bedroom furniture perfectly, so I decided I’d ask him if he was interested in making me a coffee table using the wood from the headboard of my bedroom set. A few weeks later he delivered a coffee table to me that was much nicer then I had ever expected it would be.” “A pleasure to work with.” “Nothing short of masterful.” “Do not waste your time looking for ‘deals’ or cheaper prices.” “Did a tremendous job” “Putting a very valuable, family heirloom in someone else’s hands can be daunting, but I felt very comfortable after meeting Peter.”
