Peter, I am just writing to say thank you so much for the beautiful work your team did reupholstering my Knoll Rockwell Unscripted lounge chairs.

Dear Peter,

Just a note to let you know how pleased I am with the remake of the headboard. Redoing this entire bed fits so very well in my apartment. It’s a special piece and maintained from the late 80’s and it sat in the basement for over 20 years. It’s been given a new life. Any other upholstery jobs that come up I’ll be sure to give a ring. Thanks, be well!

Dear Peter and Charlie:
Thank you so much for the repair work you did recently on our Patrick Naggar chair. You and your team were wonderfully helpful and efficient. I dreaded the task of finding someone who could (and would) take on this job, but you made it easy. And your shop in Long Island City is so convenient to Manhattan! You actually have me looking forward to the next time that we need a piece of furniture repaired or restored. You will be our first call.

“The Thomas Amato Company has proven themselves yet again! After refinishing many pieces of my furniture so beautifully, I have given them all of my upholstery pieces. The staff at Amato are truly professionals and a pleasure to work with. If furniture was food, they would be a five star restaurant!”

Virginia Zorbo

I’m writing to thank you for the outstanding partnership and services that Thomas Amato has provided to Henricksen over the years. Specifically, Amato was critical to the success of many of the projects we have brought them into. Taking existing furniture and giving it a major facelift. It is what Amato does best!!! I have found myself in a situation where a sofa has come in incorrect from a manufacturer – had it redone by another upholsterer which came in incorrect again!! Last minute, I reached out to Amato and they saved the day. The sofa came in as if it is brand new. Amato to the rescue!!

Henricksen greatly appreciates Amato support on various projects. They provide a level of trust in quality, pricing, and have the most talented staff that can fix anything. Their refinishers are amazing!! Their leadership and dedication/teamwork was invaluable in helping us successfully manage many projects over the years .

We look forward to growing our relationship and continued success with a vendor that is reliable every time!!

Simone Espinet,

Business Development Manager, Henricksen

Needless to say, but happy to repeat the kudos. It comes as no surprise that this company has been around for so long. The quality of work, attention to detail and the professionalism, is only surmounted by the personal attention you get from this incredibly warm staff of skilled Boss, Peter Amato, one of his right hands, Charlie Lawrence and the staff of skilled craftsman. We came across a 1940’s Deco Coffee Table by Gilbert Rohde, the veneers had been tortured, and we seriously thought it was beyond repair. Not a challenge for this incredible team. Restored, ha, its “Museum Quality” now. Our best and sincere appreciation for continued high quality work. You’ve never let us down.

Tom & Al

Thank you all at Amato Furniture. What a beautiful job you all have done. I love my womb chairs. And the Matt black base is to perfection. Thank you so very much. A very happy customer. Suzanne

Love, love, ❤️ the swan chairs. They look beautiful. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on them and delivering them to Charlottesville

Rich Walker re: Swan chairs

it’s PERFECT!!! The fabric is gorgeous! It has deco-ey arches that weren’t visible in the swatch. The cushion is perfectly, sumptuously cushiony, AND it fits the couch!!! AND it doesn’t need to be plumped after sitting. The color couldn’t be better – it talks to my wing chair like a brother! So very pleased!!! Thank you. We’re really thrilled with the sofa. It pulls the whole living area together, and it feels perfect!

Stephanie Cooper re: her sofa

I just want to thank you and your staff for doing a such great job of recovering and reconditioning my Stickley dining chairs – the 32 year old chairs look new again. I also very much appreciated your excellent communication with me throughout the process. It has been a pleasure dealing with everyone in your company including the delivery men.

Carol Finkel

The table just arrived, and it looks beautiful! Thank you so much for the incredible care and craftsmanship that you applied to it. This table has great sentimental value to us, and we’re thrilled with the result. I hope to work with you again in the future. Best, Ada

Once again, thank you so much for a beautiful job on my furniture.

All I can say is I was really blown away. Quality, quality, quality work. Thank you so much

I cannot tell you how many compliments I received on your workmanship. Countless!

We wanted to thank you for making our experience with your company such a pleasant one. So efficient, professional, and kind to boot! We were delighted that you went out of your way to deliver our cushions on time before Thanksgiving. You are the best!

I’ve been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Thomas Amato & Co. over a period of 30+ years. As Design Coordinator for Smith Barney (now Morgan Stanley), I was responsible for furniture and finishes for several hundred branches, as well as the corporate office in Manhattan. The company I relied on for upholstering and furniture refinishing was Thomas Amato & Co. Every project is handled in a professional and timely fashion. Their expertise and fine craftmanship is always evident. Now, as owner of JMK Art & Design, I’ve continued to rely on Peter and John and their skilled crafts people for refinishing and reupholstering. They’re a pleasure to work with and they do great work!

Joan Kravett

Peter, Charlie, and the rest of the Amato team did an outstanding job on several custom creation projects. They excel at understanding what the customer wants and translates specifications into great-end products. They care for the pieces as if they are their own. The level of communication and care is an outstanding aspect of their services.

Thanks so much for taking care of my butcher-block table desk.

I’m writing you on behalf of my wife, Laura Finn, and me to thank you for the wonderful work you did in covering our two Danish chairs with black leather.

As I’m sure Laura told you, we bought those chairs at an estate sale because we were impressed with their design. The condition of the chairs was terrible, but Laura was convinced that if she sent them to you, we would have two beautiful chairs for our home. She told me that you have done a lot of work for her in the past and that she had complete confidence that you would be able to do a great job. Still, both of us were amazed when we saw the final result. It is truly extraordinary. We wanted to write you this letter so that you and your colleagues would know how grateful we are for your fine work.
