SARASOTA, FL – Antique furniture restorer Mission Avenue Studio plans to capitalize on the trend of “furniture with a story.”
“Whether you’ve just moved into a studio apartment, purchased a new house or want to bring new life to a tired room, a colorful piece of furniture with a unique story will capture the attention of everyone who steps into your home,” said Bernabe Somoza, owner of Mission Avenue Studio.
A top vendor of online retailer One King’s Lane, Mission Avenue Studio has sold more than 700 pieces of “recycled and reinterpreted” furniture in the past year. Mission Avenue Studio’s most popular vintage pieces have included French furniture of the 1920s and 1930s in addition to pieces from the earlier Victorian era. The furniture restorer is also seeing strong demand for cabinets, chests and sideboards made by well-known American companies from the 1930s and 40s.
Mission Avenue Studio combines well-crafted American and European wood furniture from the 1930s to the 1970s with modern fabrics and finishes. The furniture restorer uses designer fabric lines including Jonathan Adler for Kravet and Martyn Lawrence Bullard for Schumacher to revitalize furniture.
