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.
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.
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.
My table was a really mess with cat clawed legs, insect holes, wobbly top. Luciano did a wonderful job, and I couldn't be happier.
Very happy with Lucians work. He upholstered two chairs and re-canned the seat of another. Excellent workmanship and would recommend highly
We had a king size bed and kitchen table refinished by The Gilder. The finished product was exactly what we wanted. Luciano stayed in constant contact with us throughout the project and was a pleasure to work with.
Cannot recommend The Gilder Restoration enough! I had an old credenza from my grandmothers home that had been ruined with smoke damage - they brought it back and it’s never looked more beautiful. Never imagined it would come out this well.
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.
