Meet Daniel McAuliffe of Blackstone Furniture Restorers in Cambridge

Today we’d like to introduce you to Daniel McAuliffe.

Daniel, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started in the antique business 25 years ago as a restorer. Shortly after starting my own restoration shop, a dealer offered me the opportunity to consign merchandise in his downtown Boston store. Thru this experience I saw the potential for selling upscale furniture and accessories in a low cost industrial space.

In 1999 that dealer, Jerry Freeman, joined me and The Barn at 17 was founded 10 minutes from Boston. The Barn at 17 became a favorite source for some of Boston’s finest designers.

As a restorer, I have an inherent appreciation for beautiful furniture and is a pleasure to make a living in this field.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The primary challenge, I find is to remain current and maintain a unique inventory, whether it be 18th century or 20th century pieces that will work in today’s home.

Please tell us about Blackstone Furniture Restorers.
