Introduction: Alex Ruiz is the owner and master craftsman of Amaya Furniture located in Hayward, California. (formerly known as SVA Furniture) Born in San Vicente, El Salvador, Ruiz learned from an early age the essentials of cabinet making and upholstery. For more than a decade he has specialized in the restoration and upholstery of classic mid-century furniture by such designers as Knoll, Eames, Wegner, Cherner, and LeCorbusier. But Ruiz is equally proud of the work he’s done with modest furniture pieces, such as a client who had an ordinary wing chair that belonged to his grandmother. Amaya Furniture also works with high-end commercial clients such as hotels and restaurants, including the Ritz Carlton, the San Francisco Fairmont Hotel, the Four Seasons, Hilton Hotels, and Hyatt Hotels. By special appointment, Amaya is also able to offer bespoke services such as custom manufacturing and delicate refinishing projects. *During these uncertain times, we are also taking the precautionary measures to remain as safe as possible for our wellbeing as well as yours. We are following the guidelines necessary, for example always wearing a mask, social distancing, and keeping a clean, sanitized working environment. *

My dining table had been refinished 15 years ago by someone else, but the gloss top had become chipped and dull over time, and I needed the legs and skirt refinished and stained to match my new chairs. Alex responded to me immediately and maintained prompt communication throughout. He was able to transform my table, along with its 2 separate leaves, into a gorgeous piece I will forever cherish. I can't express enough how pleased I am with his work and his professionalism. My neighbor was so impressed she is already looking to have Alex refinish her table as well. Alex is #1 on my list for all my future furniture needs. Thank you!!

Amaya performed a very complicated restoration on an antique mirror, which had arrived completely destroyed from Europe. This required reattaching many small pieces, and remaking pieces of the decorative frame. If I didn’t tell you that it was restored, you never would notice.

Details: Restoration of antique furniture • 1 piece of furniture • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

SVA Furniture Restoration refinished a buffet cabinet for me. They did an excellent job. I could not be happier with the results. It was a difficult job be cause they had to bleach the wood three times to get the color I requested. They got it exactly right. I would highly recommend Alex and his crew to anyone wanting a first class result.

Details: Strip old paint or stain • Apply new paint or stain • 1 piece of furniture • At the pro’s location

Amaya did an incredible job reupholstering our mid-century modern teak chairs. They guided us through the process of selecting a new fabric, priced out all the different fabric options, and delivered a final product that was simply flawless. I highly recommend this business and their work.

Details: Reupholstery • Dining chair(s) • Leather • No, I will need the professional to provide the fabric • At the pro’s location
