I have several pieces of furniture My grandmother had saved because they were antiques to her, I have been thinking of selling, but now I have reconsidered and now would like to have restored.
 I have old wicker table and chair a keyhole chair, a old cane rocker (needing re-caned and two couches that may be  Duncan Phyfe. any suggestions?
Thank you in advance, Kim

If you are sure you're keeping all of it, by all means have it restored. It will cost as much as they are worth in this economy but in the long run, will go up in value down the road. Much depends on if the padding on the sofas would need to be replaced or just a little new added.
