NEWS: We made the National Parks blog

I did a search today and found an article about us and the Oregon Caves Chateau on the National Parks blog.  It has been there for a few months; not sure how I missed it.  It is nice to be part of  the history of our West!

As we unload, a crowd gathered!

Delivery day at the caves was the best delivery anytime; people were so excited to see the furniture!

Mitchell explains how to care for the new cushions . . .

. . . to a full house! Wonderful reception!

Mitchell and Menno and all the newly restored chairs around a table.

I wanted to keep the Spanish Red A-Frame. . .

One note: All those quotes attributed to Kate came from our notes and conversation with the NPS folks; some were Mitchell’s.  Neither of us cares — jes’ sayin!

About MPFConservation

We are a conservation and restoration firm located in the Pacific Northwest, specializing in objects: furniture, but also other objects; wood, stone or metal furniture or objects; lacquered and painted furniture or objects; traditional finishes on furniture or objects; quilts, beaded objects, and some textile reparation and interior architectural elements, such as leather or upholstered walls. When you think about conservation, equate it to restoring the furniture or object the best way possible for the history, life and value of the object. We are fully qualified to perform museum-tectbook treatments, but also flexible enough to work with private clients to allow for daily use of objects. We work West of the Rockies from Canada to Mexico, and once in a while venture beyond the West for specific treatments. Kate and Mitchell Powell are partners in work and in life; we each have our specialties in work and in our marriage. Mitchell is the cat charmer in both! To see our work visit our official website:
