Running this business has meant that we’ve needed to become experts about how to re-use our pieces. Many can just be displayed as art, which they are, but it is also interesting to try to integrate an artifact into new construction or restoration. Our experience in doing just that can save you time and energy if you bring us your projects early on so that we can help you find pieces that will complement your ideas. Many architectural elements also lend themselves to being re-used in a totally different context; a column capital as a table base, grilles incorporated into folding doors or a window frame made into a mirror. These are just a few of the ideas that we’ve come up with and can share with you.
Retrofitting and Restoration
Over the years we have assembled a list of trades’ people who are skilled at restoring, modifying or installing the many unique pieces that we sell. Whether it is an entire paneled room, a fireplace, stained glass or vintage plumbing, we have worked with the best in the field. Please ask us for recommendations and suggestions.
Acquisitions and Reclamations
We are committed to saving what we can in this world from senseless destruction and from the landfill. Whether demolition is senseless, controversial, needed or elective, we have no control over these decisions. However, we have a long established track record of saving the best of a building and giving the pieces a new life for future generations to enjoy.
If you intend to save some or all of the ornament from a building(s) and need it professionally removed, we can do it for you: from a paneled room, to a marble fireplace to a built-in mosaic.
