I had three Eames chairs repaired by Eli Rios. The chairs are now beautiful. I highly recommend him. His knowledge and skill with antiques has no equal. He is a true master of antique restoration.
Mr. Rios and his team are masters of their craft. His depth of knowledge of the types of wood and their characteristics is astounding. His appreciation for the history of furniture and design is equally profound. He is an artist and scientist with an deep aesthetic sense.
Eli Rios has done at least seven or eight jobs for me over the years. Each and every time his results have far exceeded my expectations. A superb craftsman who is also thoughtful of his employees as well as his clients.
Mr Rios and his team have worked on many pieces of my antique furniture, always to my total delight. His knowledge and skill seems endless. He is a true conservator, and he has educated me to understand and appreciate the difference. I trust him completely to do the right thing for my pieces, and I always look forward to giving him a new piece to work on because I know he will return it in a condition
that will exceed my hopes and expectations.
There is just no one better than him in his field, and I pray he never retires.

you’re wonderful 5 stars!
Eli is a miracle worker. He can copy anything and/or turn any random piece into a masterpiece! Have used him for 24+ years. The best in the business!!!
Mr. Rios and his crew of master craftsmen have taken extraordinary care of my antique furniture over many years and have brought many pieces back to their original beauty. I agree totally with previous reviewers.
