Our Story

The Kelsey family has been involved in repairing and restoring antique furniture in Remuera for over 50 years.  We strive to provide the highest quality repair and restoration services in Auckland.  We offer a wide range of services most all of which are done in our Remuera premises.

Ken Kelsey is the founder of Kelsey’s Furniture Restoration.  He apprenticed in cabinet making and quickly expanded to the repair and the restoration of antique furniture.  Although Ken ‘retired’ in 2007, he is still actively involved in providing refinishing a couple of days a week.

Upon graduating from high school, daughter Jenny made the decision to join the company.   Jenny  has thoroughly enjoyed working alongside her father for the past 33 years.  Jenny took over the responsibility of running the company upon Ken’s retirement. 

In 1986 , Ken’s step-son – Scott - joined the business as an apprentice.  This team of three have built an impeccable reputation for both quality and service.

We are, always have been, and always will remain a small family business built on exceeding our customer already high expectations.
