About Our Furniture Restoration Company in Wellington, Florida:
Tradition is your furniture restoration company in Wellington. For more than 30 years Tradition Furniture Restoration (TFR) has brought high quality workmanship to an extensive clientele in every area of furniture restoration.
TFR opened their doors in Montreal, Quebec in February 1983, led by entrepreneur, Michael J. Herchan. His education in this field began with woodworking courses and an apprenticeship with Austrian artisan Johann Frotscher. Accepted to McGill University in mechanical engineering, Michael continued to be drawn to woodworking and restoration.
The Tradition Continues: Success and Notoriety
In 1987 Time-Life approached TFR to consult with them on the furniture-refinishing chapter of their book ‘Fix It Yourself Furniture.’ In 1988 a local private school needed a professional to teach a beginner’s wood working class. TFR was called upon to provide lesson planning and easy-to-follow wood working projects for the local students.
In 1990 Michael acquired an established upholstering firm, Hackl Upholstering, and Hackl Design was born from the two companies. He oversaw a staff of over 20 artisans from around the globe and set up a 12,000 square foot facility to accommodate both the trade (interior designers) and the public.
South Florida Bound
In 1996 Tradition Furniture Restoration was established in South Florida. Hale Piano sub-contracted much of their work to TFR to oversee touch-up and refinishing of their high-end instruments. Shortly thereafter the Steinway Company of New York contracted with TFR to restore their concert grand pianos throughout South Florida.
In October 2009, Boca Raton Magazine highlighted Mr. Herchan and his company, Tradition Furniture Restoration, as one of their choices for a “Fix-It” compilation of assorted local businesses involved in repairing and restoring. You will be happy to know that TFR is your local furniture restoration company in Wellington.
