I have had the pleasure of working with Luciano Colella, The Gilder, for many years. Every project he has completed for me far exceeded my high expectations. He is a knowledgeable, skilled artisan. He is honest and fair. His work is beautiful and precise. I wish I could give him ten stars.
Amazing transformation on an old tired dining room buffet table, we were ready to paint black and call it a day. Luciano and his team has beautified this furniture with a heavy smooth dark colbalt blue lacquer Finish and it’s just stunning.
I recently wanted repair to a hutch that I took home from my mother in law after she needed to downsize. After looking locally to find someone close to me in Trumbull, CT, I found the Gilder, Luciano Colella. Based on previous reviews, I hired him. What a great find. Just a great person with a lot of talent and very honest. Picked up the piece, restored the piece, delivered the piece. Great job, fair prices, very responsive. I will certainly use his services in the future.
Antique sofa in need of significant repair & reupholstering. The folks at Gilder were prompt, responsive, and really nice to work with. They did a magnificent job on the sofa, and I'll definitely be bringing more pieces back to them for repair & restoration. I recommend them highly.
Luciano did a spectacular job refinishing a cherished Japanese antique table for us. He brought a pathetic pice back to life! His estimate, pick-up, and delivery were prompt. Even though he had to do some unexpected work on the table - no extra charge! Highly, highly recommend. He is an artist.
I highly recommend Luciano at the Guilder. He restored my French Refractory dining table to its original beauty. Also fixed another restorers mess. He is on-time with delivery and I will add very honest. A pleasure to know. Thank you Luciano
They did a great job on our dining room table. Very friendly and performed the work in a timely fashion. Will definitely use them again!
Excellent service and workmanship. I had several mid-century modern pieces renovated and a rosewood chess table.
