FR Review:
After 37 years in the business, Kevin Brown's dry wit is almost as famous in the industry as his skill as a restorer and manufacturer. Many of Los Angeles' most highly sought decorators swear by his skills at designing custom furniture and restoring valuable furniture of centuries past. Industry insiders rave that Brown "makes things look authentic, never mass-produced." Between his superior craftsmanship and his celebrated sense of humor, clients are pleased as punch with Brown.

Brown hails from the UK, where he studied architecture at London Polytechnic. After deciding against becoming an architect, he "learned by doing" at his father's furniture shop. Now he has his own 3,000 square foot workshop, where jobs range from designing a single custom piece to restoring a roomful of English and French furniture from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Brown is known for taking great care on each project, and clients appreciate his diligence and attention to detail. We hear Brown executes all the designs and drawings for his custom furniture himself and can recreate woodwork from any period or place. Of all of his fine attributes, Brown's preoccupation with creating a beautiful patina is considered the most notable. The majority of Brown's commissions come to him through decorators. We're told that due to his low overhead, Brown's fees, while not cheap, are a bargain for the quality of his work.

Representative Client Comments:
"He's a really funny guy once you get to know him, and there's no doubt he's one of the best." "He studies each piece thoroughly before even touching it." "Quality, quality, quality. Enough said."
