FR Review:
Elaine Certa-Morrison began her apprenticeship earlier than most. Almost from birth, she was learning the techniques of furniture finishing from her father, acclaimed master finisher (and artisan) John Certa. Since then, Certa-Morrison has carved out her own name in the industry, providing a wide variety of finishes on a wide variety of pieces. Specialties include French polish and gilding, as well as Chinoiserie that is hailed by sources as “museum worthy.” Certa-Morrison will also execute custom finishes that are designed to suit the taste of the owner, be it for an aged dresser or a dazzlingly new end table. Of course, artistry on this level carries a price, but references say that pieces are always delivered on time and exactly as specified, making the firm well worth the expense.

Representative Client Comments:
“Elaine does all of my custom finish work. She is a perfectionist and works at a high quality level.” “Elaine has an outstanding knowledge of executing truly beautiful finishes.” “The work is always completed within a reasonable time frame.” “I’ve worked with her over ten years, and I’ve been extremely satisfied with all the work done.” “As a professional designer, she is my only choice for finishes on custom pieces.”
