High End Salvage

May 12, 2009

There is an amazing hunting ground just over the hill in Sonoma called Artefact Design and Salvage.   Inside, you’ll witness some decor that would make any designer swoon.  Outside is a massive architectural salvage yard that sets my heart awhirl.  It’s all way out of my budget of course, but inspirational to look at.

Check out these chandeliers, all so different:

Here are a few images from the salvage yard outside:

In my conversation with the manager a few weeks ago, I was told that Restoration Hardware photographed their store and in his opinion “copied” many of their ideas.  This is complete hearsay, of course, but I couldn’t help noticing these pieces from RH’s spring collection:

Entablature Mirror, $3,290

Trestle Wood Salvaged Dining Table, $3,290

Salvaged Wood Sideboard, $2,990

Gun Barrel Salvaged Dining Table, $3,290:

I say, if his opinion is correct, then imitation is the best form of flattery.

    Wow, that is amazing!! We have a place like that (in a realllly bad part of town) that I love…I am alway shocked at how expensive it all is though. It is massive and I could spend hours there, drooling. :)

    Wow! Love all those old doors. I have a door fetish.

    And cute little stool redo for your vanity. I wish I was that creative. Sadly, I have no talent.

    Wow! I NEED one of those giant chunks of green glass. And those doors… I may faint. Gorgeous. Places like that make my heart ache.

  13. Great blog guys, let me tell you that I had a very good experience buying a salvage door at http://www.salvageantiques.com, the shipping service is ok but not the best, but the European salvage doors are amazing. A lot of history.
