About The Collected Works

We are a full service classic and antique woven furniture repair and restoration shop located in Wilmette, Illinois - a north shore suburb of greater Chicago. Wicker, rattan, cane, rush and all things woven furniture.  The Collected Works was established in 1971 and in the 50 plus years since we have provided restoration and repair services to over a thousand clients nationwide - from Marquette to Miami - from New York to Newport Beach.

Classic and antique woven furniture by distinction are valuable upscale home furnishings.  Many furniture pieces being vintage antiques with over 100 years of history, many other classical pieces created by the most prestigious furniture designers.  Each particular item of classic or antique woven furniture is very precious: it carries high monetary value, it has important sentimental meaning and it is comfortable, attractive and durable.  These may indeed be the most valuable of your home furnishings.

Our staff here at The Collected Works are sensitive and attentive to the value and meaning each of your classic or antique woven furniture pieces may represent. We are a team of dedicated craftsmen with five specific areas of expertise: restoration, rebuilding, repairing, painting and seasonal maintenance.
