"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life"

-Confucius

My name is Laura Milby and I am the owner, designer and craftswoman at Lovingly Restored by Laura LLC.. I am a self-taught woodworker and started Lovingly Restored with the idea that furniture and home decor should be unique, durable, and customizable.

Today most furniture and home decor is mass produced and often cheaply constructed. At Lovingly Restored, new and reclaimed materials are hand selected for their beauty, character and durability. Inspired by my environment and my enthusiasm for the reintroduction of quality wood designs, I bring these raw material to life with fine craftsmanship and heart.

I am a transplant and originally from the East Coast where I studied Biology at the University of Virginia. After graduation I went on to work for an environmental consulting firm, but I felt that my passion laid elsewhere. With the support of my amazing husband, I made the decision to leave the corporate world and follow my heart to Oahu where I currently reside with my husband and two pups.

I absolutely love what I do and I love working with clients to design one-of-a-kind pieces for their home. Message me to start designing your custom piece!
