FR Review:
This group of 30 European master craftsmen have been working in the New York area since 1950, servicing a variety of furniture restoration and conservation needs. We hear that they offer a full complement of services: reupholstering, caning, leatherwork, metalwork, marquetry, inlay, water and oil gilding, turning, carving and pietre dure. They also restore and repair chandeliers and lead canes. Sources say that the team at Olek Restoration, led by current owner Peter Triestman, can also design custom furniture and build replications, cabinetry, architectural millwork and paneling in a wide variety of styles, from Medieval to Rococo to postmodern, and everything in between. Most recently the firm has been taking on the fabrication of architectural metalwork, creating steel and ornamental replicas of historic windows and doors for landmark buildings throughout the city.

Olek Restorations’s outstanding quality of work extends to such impressive projects as Grand Central Station, the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, the Prince George Hotel, the Queens County Farm Museum, the Dyckman House, the Sara Delano Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Townhouses, the UN and the prestigious Cooper Hewitt Museum. Much of the firm’s work has been for locations on the National Register of Historic Places and has been featured in New York. It may be that projects equivalent to these accolades keep the company booked, but recent clients have commented that attention to business and responsiveness can be unreliable. Still, friends of clients seek out Olek’s services in hopes of making the waiting list.

Representative Client Comments:
“I would highly recommend their expertise.” “Diligent, meticulous and artful.” “Everyone praises Triestman’s down-to-earth and friendly demeanor, though some have had issues with his patience.” “Hard to reach, but worth the wait.”
