The Owner... Blake Soule'
Blake Soule' has been interested in woodworking and refiinishing since the age of 13 when he made his first bass fishing lure and refinished a gun stock. Blake worked in furniture restoration to put himself through college and graduated from the University of Memphis bachelor's degree in Recreational Therapy. His career in Recreational Therapy was short-lived however, as he found furniture restoration to be far more interesting, fun and rewarding. Blake was a missionary in Brazil for 3 years after graduating from college with an interdenominational organization called The Navigators. In Brazil, he met his wife Shyrley. Blake and Shyrley Soule', along with their two boys, now live in a suburb of Memphis Tennessee called Germantown. He is a member of Hope Presbyterian church in Cordova TN.
About the Company...
After gaining nearly a decade of experience working for other furniture restoration, repair and finishing companies, Blake Soule' opened his own shop--Soule' Furniture Restoration in 1987. Initially, Blake and his wife Shyrley operated the shop out of their home, but the business quickly outgrew their home-based shop and subsequently moved to a 3,000 sq. ft. facility. Growth continued and currently, Soule' Furniture Restoration occupies a 5,000 sq. ft. shop filled with a vast range of old fashion woodworking tools and high-end equipment. Soule' Furniture Restoration has diversified over nearly two decades of operation and now handles repairs and restorations to not only antiques, but also new furniture that needs to be restored back to its original state. Soule' also makes high end custom furniture along with refinishing and making conference tables. With a staff of around 11 employees--including two employees dedicated to full-time to customer services--Soule' Furniture Restorations is ready to help you with all of your furniture restoration needs. Soule' Furniture Restorations is conveniently located just 3 miles south of Collierville off Hwy.
