Right in Florence’s heart, in the neighborhood of Santo Spirito (Via dei Velluti 21r), you will find a place where Florentine craftsmanship and the Art of Restoration are kept alive by Renato Olivastri. Historical pieces of furniture, inlay ones, frame, chandeliers and wooden artifacts are the objects he usually restores.
Renato Olivastri, as his Master before him, is a specialist in furniture restoration in Boulle Style.
The studio collaborates with professionals who are specifically trained in the gold leaf technique, sculpting, decorating and painting on wood.
It is also possible to ask for commissions, in any style desired, both antique or new.
The lab also takes care of the disinfection of insects from the furniture with modern technologies that are respecting Nature and make sure that the piece is respected as well.
In the bottega it is also possible to attend workshops and courses that can be personalized, about wood inlay and introduction to restoration of old furniture.
