Christopher Anigacz founded Double Queue in 1999 after sharpening his skills at Robert Lighton's British Khaki Furniture, where he revolutionized British Khaki's finishing processes, both in the U.S. and abroad. For almost two decades, collectors, dealers, and interior designers have trusted and praised Christopher's craftsmanship and his ability to deliver expert and timely solutions for all of their restoration and refinishing needs.
Today, Christopher specializes in the elaborate and painstaking art of French polishing, a traditional finish resulting in a rich and glossy surface that brings out the beauty of highly figured woods. He also uses a wide range of techniques and materials, both old-world and modern, to restore and refinish furniture, interior paneling, wood design elements, and decorative objects.
Double Queue's services also include re-creating missing or damaged components, strengthening joinery, veneer repair and restoration, gilding and metallic finishes, caning and rushing, re-upholstery, and more. The studio's convenient location in Long Island City, just two blocks from the Queensboro Bridge in the heart of the artisan district, makes it easy to transport valued pieces – or, for a more personal touch, some services can also be provided on-site in your home or office at your convenience.
