The climate that people find so wonderful here in Colorado is the worst type of climate for your fine furniture. The humidity can be as low as 7% one week and as high as 100% the next. Wood takes in and looses this moisture just as quickly expanding and contracting, loosening old hide glue joints and causing splitting and cracking of joints and panels.
Each piece of furniture will react differently, depending on it's age, the way it was made and the general maintenance of the item. Many things can be the cause of damage, and the wood or fabric, construction and general condition of the item will determine the most effective repair. Without seeing an item, it is very difficult to give an accurate evaluation of the best solution to repair.
