Furniture Repair and Restoration

Furniture by Lowell is a Fourth Generation, family business located in Durham, NC, and serving Raleigh, Cary and Chapel Hill.

We put the same effort into refinishing a single piece as we do an entire household. No job is too big or too small. And, we back our work with a one year written warranty.

Lowell grew up in a furniture shop and was influenced and trained by dozens of restorers, including the Royal Cabinet Makers of Scotland.

We have had the honor to service Historic Colonial Williamsburg® for over 30 years.

We will work on anything from brand new furniture to family heirlooms and antiques. You can trust us to serve you with quality, craftsmanship and impeccable customer service.
