You may already know the look you are trying to achieve, or simply be working from an inspiration. Rohan will meet with you to understand your tastes, design aesthetic, budget, and functional needs in order to create something original for your space. Preliminary sketches, 3-dimensional mock-ups and scale models are often used during this phase to help bring the design to life.

RWD provides a comprehensive finishing service. Whether you have an unfinished new piece of furniture or a sentimental antique that needs a new lease of life, we refinish every type of surface using oil, wax, paint, lacquer and vanish to achieve the look you are after.

Often samples are provided to create an exact color and sheen match, or you can choose from a wide selection of samples we have in house, from high gloss polished veneer to painted colors and specialized antiqued finishes.

With years of finishing experience, paired with the artisan touch and patience needed in proper surface preparation for understanding stains, lacquers, paints and toning, we provide a supreme finish to any piece of furniture or surface.
