Dear Friends + Colleagues,

I am grateful for your superior work and look forward to a future association.

My Sincere Best Wishes,

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!

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.

Frank did a great job removing the stain and refinishing the surface. I appreciate your quick response, and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Very truly yours, Charles Patten Architects

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.

Thank you so much for sending Jorge Chavez to our apartment this morning. He did a gorgeous job of removing the scratches and bringing the wood back to its luster and beauty. He is also the nicest, most polite, the neatest worker ever and very skilled!!

We are extremely pleased with all of your work.

“Amato Restoration has always provided great workmanship and consistent professionalism to our institution. For years, we’ve sent fragile antique pieces to Peter Amato and his team for restoration which return looking as fabulous as the day they were constructed. The staff is excellent and genuinely kind. Highly recommend.”

“I always knew that you were the best upholsterers in the city, now I know the wonders that you can do with wood restoration.I thought that my dining table was ruined by water damage from a leak, but Frankie came and made it look brand new!”

Thank you again & again
