Architectural Salvage


The hunt for architectural salvage is where our home décor experiments at Artefact Design & Salvage begin, and this enterprise has taken us all over the globe. The items we curate from all regions of the United States, Europe & Asia offer more than the longevity of marble, stone and concrete, even more than the beauty of expert artistry and craftsmanship. They betray an authenticity and soul that can be seen in their aged surfaces and felt in their worn textures. Columns, statues, carvings and clocks are just a few of the items we carry that bring the soul and spirit of other places and times into your home or garden. Whether we offer these items in our store “as is,” or whether they become part of an inspiring original piece by Dave Allen, they have the capacity to transform your living space. We invite you to explore our selection and experience the hunt for yourself.


Rescuing Artifacts

In salvaging architectural fragments, I think what motivates us is the same urge that drives the historic preservation movement – to save important parts of our architectural heritage. And if an entire building cannot be preserved, then we can still do our best to save ornament that embodies the workmanship of talented artisans and embodies the visual aesthetics of another era. *
