Celebrating 90 Years of Quality Craftmanship
ADE Furniture Refinishing & Repair was founded by Gustave Dahlstrom in 1929. He and his wife, Ida, immigrated into Boston from Sweden in 1909. In 1922, he moved his family to Baltimore and found work in a piano factory. In 1929, the "Great Depression" hit and the piano factory went out of business, as did many.
Being difficult to find work in those days, he started his own furniture refinishing and repair business and called it ADE Furniture Refinishing & Repair. Just one story of many stories of immigrants who came and still come to this country looking for an opportunity, freedom, and a chance to make it.
Alan Dahlstrom had the rare opportunity to work not only with his grandfather, a true craftsman, but to experience the old-fashioned work ethic of a person from another era, another way of life.

Alan Dahlstrom, grandson of Gustave, was first introduced to the business when he was sixteen years old. He worked with "Pop" in his shop for years learning from a master craftsman from the old country.
"Grand Pop, like his son, my Dad, was a man of integrity and his word. They left a valuable impression on me and it has served me and the business well through the years. Now, I still own and operate the business as a sole proprietorship refinishing, repairing, and restoring all furniture, new and antiques. Check out my pictures in the photo gallery, I have taken some before and after shots of my restoration projects."
