Before I found Renaissance Furniture, I had a chair reupholstered and the wood on the arms and legs refinished. The shop that did the original work did a wonderful job with the reupholstery, but the wood was a disaster; the finish was flaking off just days after I brought it home.

I want everyone to know about the fantastic work done by Boris Levitt at Renaissance Furniture Restoration on Ocean Avenue in San Francisco.
I inherited several pieces of wood furniture built in 1920’s. Because they were in constant use by family, including young children, there was true destruction of veneers, joints, and upholstery. Boris took on the job fearlessly... Read more >>
Boris is the BEST!! My husband and I had 3 chairs handed down from grandparents that needed restoration - the full works too - reweaving the springs, re-stabilizing the frame of the chairs, the cushions, refinishing the wood legs, and choosing the fabric and reupholstering... Read more >>

I gave Mr. Levitt a treasured mahogany bench to refinish and upholster. The bench goes with a dining room table and chairs. In addition to refinishing the bench, I asked him to try to come close to matching the leather for the bench to the dining room chairs.... Read more >>
Our family just inherited an old dark mahogany Duncan Phyfe dining room table with 6 chairs. My husband found RFR online and sent in some photos. We asked if Boris could tone down the mahogany to match a drawer from a china cabinet we already have.... Read more >>
_____________________________________________________My family utilized the services of Mr. Levitt of Renaissance Furniture Restoration many years ago with great satisfaction, including a rush job we needed in 24 hours. We recently decided to repair three cat damaged pieces, and again we were happy to choose Mr. Levitt. He helped me choose colors and fabric and we ended up taking another antique sofa that was in his shop to repair, that he did a stunning job on. The four pieces are perfectly restored and we are very grateful.
_____________________________________________________Dear Mr. Levitt,Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!I can't begin to tell you how happy we are with the furniture you refinished for us. As you know, it belonged to my late grandmother and she would be equally excited if she could see it now.When we first decided to see about getting the dresser and vanity refinished, I must admit to having had some reservations because I didn't want just anyone working on my treasured furniture. I am so happy that we found you to do the refinishing for us that I am actually looking around my house to see what else we can send you to work on.Thank you again.
______________________________________________________Dear Boris,Thank you very much for absolutely outstanding job you did on the antique mantel we entrusted to your care. Little we know that it would turn out to be such a showpiece!Your workmanship is exceptional, your service dependable and your prices more than reasonable. We compliment you and the fine job extended to us.We would gladly recommend your services and look forward to doing business with you in the future.Again, our sincerest thanks.

______________________________________________________Dear Mr. Levitt,All the furniture you restored for me now has been distributed to members of my family. You did superb work, restoring each piece to its original beauty.My brother and I especially amazed at what you accomplished in restoring the mahogany table.Each of my two nephews is delighted with the outcome of the upholstered chairs they received. One nephew, who is attorney in Riverside, wrote to me saying: "The chair looks magnificent. I was thinking the other day if an emergency occurred in which we had to vacate the house and could only take one thing, I would certainly take the Grandpa's chair."I and others in my family appreciate your careful, artistic work.Thank you very much.

_______________________________________________________Dear Boris,Thank you so much for your work on the Finn Juhl chair. It is now sitting in my living room. The chair has never looked better and, of course, the blue leather is a perfect match in the room. Your work is exceptional including all the attention to detail. Your name will now have a special place in the history of this family chair. Thank you once again for your expertise and craftsmanship in restoring the chair.
_______________________________________________________Over the past few years Boris Levitt of Renaissance Furniture Restoration has restored several pieces of furniture for me: a small table that had sat outdoors for years and now looks like new, a piano bench with an extremely cracked old finish, a Victorian rocker that needed both refinishing and reupholstering, and a large dining table, which involved matching the color of old and new woods.In all these jobs Mr. Levitt has done meticulous work. I have been very satisfied with his work, attention to details, promptness and, not least, his reasonable prices.I would be happy to recommend Mr. Levitt for any furniture repair and restoration job.
_________________________________________________________I would like to express my opinion about Renaissance Furniture Restoration Company. I am tremendously grateful for an outstanding job they did on our older Ethan Allen dining room furniture. They didn’t take short-cuts, time-wise nor material wise, which is seldom experience anywhere these days. I also appreciate the fact that Mr. Levitt, the owner, voluntarily called the manufacturer regarding the specifications of the particular stain for our furniture. Their interest and integrity is shown by dedication toward the end product of the craft. Without any hesitation I will call on them for any future refinishing projects. Many thanks indeed for a job well done!
__________________________________________________________Boris did amazing work on restoring three pieces of vintage furniture. He did an impeccable job, even finishing the work more than a week ahead of time simply because I asked if it was a possibility. His prices are fair; he gives an estimate based on email pictures, and then comes out to confirm when he picks up the pieces. Great work, nice man, would definitely use him again.
___________________________________________________________The chairs I brought to Boris I purchased at Ross and the cushions were this awful, sickly color green. Boris not only did a fantastic job reupholstering them but he also charged less than the other shops I called for quotes.I later saw these chairs going for several hundred dollars each at Macys. Mine look ten times better and exactly as I wanted them - at a fraction of the price! I definitely recommend Boris!
