MPF Conservation is a conservation, preservation & restoration company. We specialize in traditional woodworking, veneer/carving; traditional finishes; and upholstery of antique and mid-century modern furniture. We clean, repair, and conserve: lacquer, leather, wooden objects, textiles, passementerie, needlework, quilts, and interior architectural applications. We specialize in objects:
- furniture, but also other objects such as boxes, statues or . . .
- carousel horses;
- upholstered furniture or walls;
- wood, stone or metal furniture or objects;
- lacquered and painted furniture or objects;
- traditional finishes on furniture or objects;
- reparation of quilts, beaded objects, and other textiles 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 serve Portland and the West, from Southern California to Canada, and into Montana, Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona; in business in Oregon for 40 years.
The partnership is Mitchell Powell, PA, AIC (MRP byline) and Kate Powell (DKP byline), partners in work and in life; we each have our specialties in work and in marriage. Mitchell is the cat charmer in both!
