Overview

Architectural salvage is all about saving and reusing bits and pieces of old buildings and construction, reminders of the talent and artistry of yesteryear. Brian Coleman shows how architectural elements and antiques—such as a 200-year-old solid-oak door, an Arts & Crafts fireplace mantel, a Victorian stained-glass window, or an Art Deco lamp—can impart character and heritage to any home. See how vintage sinks, hardware, and lighting are perfectly blended into new environments, giving the items a new lease on life and, in the process, preserving them for future generations.

From a Manhattan brownstone to a Marin County barn-turned-cottage, Coleman has documented an exquisite array of home styles incorporating salvage items in imaginative ways. Extraordinary doors, mantels, windows, sinks, hardware, lighting, art pieces, and more are attractively blended into new environments to start a second life and give character to newer homes.

No place to install a salvaged window? Why not turn it into a mirror and put it on prominent display in your living room. In need of window shades for a funky bedroom? Some quirky pull-down maps salvaged from an old school can give your room personality plus. Apothecary doors can become classy cabinet fronts; and antiques of every type can take clever places in your decor.

More than 150 photographs by Dan Mayers will inspire you to enliven your own environment with found and rescued objects from the lovely to the quirky.

Read an Excerpt

Architectural salvage has a special beauty all its own. The intricate turnings of a nineteenth-century, carved oak newel post from a Victorian mansion, the sparkling, jewel tones of a stained-glass window from a razed church, the color and patina of crusty, wrought-iron fence railing from an inner city brownstone all share a charm and attention to detail that is rarely found today. Castoffs from another time, these architectural details are actually works of art on their own. Pride of craftsmanship is the quality that still shines through, whether it's a roughly cut oak beam from a 200-year-old barn or a sophisticated Art Deco glass-and-metal chandelier from a 1930s movie palace. Saving and reusing these artifacts allows us to enjoy them once again and preserves these treasures for future generations.

This book celebrates the beauty of architectural salvage and showcases how common building elements of the past have been used to transform homes into distinctive and very personal spaces in the present. We visit fascinating and unique projects across the country, from Soho to San Francisco.
