Where to get furniture repaired?

sage green couchTheresa emails:

I was wondering if you could please ask your readers if anyone knows of a place to get furniture fixed. I have a wooden chair that broke and I prefer to not throw it out.

We had a similar question years ago, but things change. Businesses close. Businesses open. Businesses move.

Also: So much stuff now seems to be made with the intention of being disposable, either by design or carelessness. It's kind of gratifying when you actually fix something and extend its life.

So, got a suggestion for Theresa? Please share! And sentence or two about why you're suggesting a place can be helpful.

Playing on the Furniture in Waterford does repairs I believe--haven't actually patronized them but the pieces in the window and store are lovely!

Kate, thanks for your suggestion.

They should turn Maiden Lane into a stepped pedestrian street, like they have all over Europe. We don't need to reinvent the wheel, they do steep small streets pretty well across the pond, let's look for some precedents... Human scaled lighting is critical too, that goes for the whole city. And we don't need paint on the road, just signage perpendicular to the flow of traffic at the bridge entrance. I also echo the call for basic, ongoing maintenance to our current infrastructure. How about some weed removal in sidewalks, etc?
