John Canning Studios

The eponymous founder of John Canning Painting and Conservation Studios has been responsible for noteworthy projects such as the gilding restoration at Radio City Music Hall and the restoration of the Grand Central Terminal Sky Mural. While working on the train station’s vaulted constellations, Canning’s artists discovered notes, messages and signatures of the workers who reinstated the mural in 1944. True to his preservationist discipline, Canning left the early artisans’ messages untouched. The Canning studio is also equipped to do faux painting (e.g. marbling and wood-graining), trompe l’oeil and ornamental plasterwork for both residential and commercial spaces.

The Antique Lighthouse makes an outing to Manayunk in Philadelphia worthwhile. Even this destination, a compound of former textile mills, requires looking closer, as it’s located several huffing blocks up the hill behind Main Street. Owner Rollin Wilber isn’t a particularly outgoing guy. But get him talking about his work, restoring lamps from the early electric era or converting late-nineteenth-century kerosene-fueled pieces, and he lights up. During our conversation, he offered to show us the room where he and his staff of six ply their trade. (Ask to see the 1,000-square-foot metal shop that’s also on-site.) Among other large pieces in inventory, a recently restored $21,000, 37-light Maria Teresa chandelier with sine-curve arms was dripping with crystals.

Growing up in California, Richard Perris was crazy about movies, and even got himself a degree in cinema. But instead of becoming a producer, he took over Crown City Hardware, the store his grandfather bought in 1936. As a youngster, Perris worked in the store on weekends and became interested in period hardware. "'Bungalow Heaven' is near here, and somebody was always searching for the right knob or hinge," he explains. "So now we specialize in Victorian, Craftsman and Deco hardware and restoration items." Crown City offers a 400-page catalog of the stores’s complete stock as well as a 60-page version that highlights popular items. As for the movies, Perris maintains a connection by providing hardware for sets requiring period authenticity.

Carrie Hayden, a sucker for all things glamorous, named her Seattle store Great Jones Home as a tribute to New York City’s Great Jones Street. Nothing here is mainstream; the custom, exotic and unusual are the norm. In addition to reinvented antiques (“Something’s always changed—we reupholster, relacquer, repaint”), Hayden sells luxurious embroidered and quilted custom linens from lesser known but top-quality European manufacturers like Bagni Volpi Noemi in Italy. The store’s interior itself is worth a visit—bold brown-and-cream-painted stripes decorate one section of wall, and high ceilings and skylights provide natural light even on rainy days. Displays are innovative too—yard-long samples of fabrics are hung from robe hooks on the wall so you can take one home and drape it over a chair to really see what it would look like in your house (so much better than the standard swatch that disappears on a sofa or chair).

By Mary Gilliatt Watson-Guptill, $35 The roll-up-your-shirtsleeves title of Gilliatt’s book may be a bit misleading—if you expect to see the beast before the beauty, you will be disappointed, since there isn’t an ugly “before” image to be seen—but it does little to detract from the well-researched, handsomely photographed and logically organized contents of this recent title from the acclaimed international interior designer and writer. With more than 30 books to her credit, Gilliatt knows how to tell a design and decoration story in both words and pictures; on the subject of replacing the original features of a house or sensitively updating them, she’s covered expansive territory. Town houses, apartments, suburban homes, farmhouses, cottages, converted warehouses, churches, industrial buildings, barns, schools and lighthouses are all considered here. Chapters to help understand the period and historical context of buildings, as well as pages on their bones—the doors, windows and floors—start would-be renovators on the right track. A comprehensive architectural, building and style glossary promises that a porte-cochere will never be confused with a portico.

Nestled next to the entrance of the Art Deco Macleay Regis apartment building, Dearing’s 1920s–1950s antiques seem right at home here. Only eagle eyes will notice that some of the pieces aren’t really antiques—Dearing manufactures his own line of reproduction furniture to exacting historical standards.

Here they can find carefully restored 1920s–1960s iceboxes and ranges that will do justice to their Craftsman bungalows, Shaker saltboxes and Prairie ranches. Owner John Jowers started out selling new appliances, but during the winter months, when half the town’s population went to Florida, customers were few and far between. To keep his staff busy, he began restoring and customizing vintage appliances. Business is now so brisk—99 percent of it comes from his website—that he no longer sells the new ones. Customers are from every state in the union as well as Canada and Europe.

Alan Andersen and Tom Stauffer specialize in exact copies of seventeenth- , eighteenth- , and nineteenth-century American antiques. Andersen has perfected techniques to simulate centuries-old surfaces, a vital part of restoration work, while Stauffer, master cabinetmaker and joiner, makes sure that every piece is as close to the original as possible. Although their reproduction work is highly respected, Andersen admits that the shop gets really excited when a rare antique comes in. "Recently we worked on a line and berry Chester County highboy," he says. "It was the only one in existence. What a thrill."

Since 1996, Remains Lighting has been a premiere source of restored antique lighting fixtures to New York’s residential and commercial designers. After an innumerable amount of requests, owner David Calligeros launched an exclusive collection in 2003. In the same year, Holly Hunt introduced the line to her showrooms. The collection’s handsome, formal designs are based on antique fixtures shorn of “fussy ornamentations,” and are precisely re-engineered and hand-finished using Old World techniques. Calligeros hopes for each fixture to become a coveted antique in its own right.
