New American Glamour - Jamie Drake

The collection of antique furniture throughout
this interior reflects the array of services Christophe Pourny Ltd. can offer. From French Polish to Gilding; Work on metal and other fine materials.Regular maintenance and onsite upkeep of antique collectibles and furnishings.

The pictures above and below are a perfect example of French Polish Finish,
applied here to a rare Cuban Mahogany table top. Although a high shine finish, It totally differs from
the high gloss synthetic lacquers used today.the liquid feeling it conveys allows
perfect transparency deep down to the wood.

This dramatic sideboard included restoration work to the ebony wood parts,
the Ormulu bronze mounts and the semiprecious stone inlay.

Wood gilded furniture always suffer from New York climate: seasonal variations in humidity and temperature. Heating and Air conditioning.... a conservative restoration and maintenance of this beautiful XVIIIc Sofa
allows this masterpiece to grace this interior and be used at the same time.
