Architectural Salvage Shopping
Last weekend, my husband and I decided to do some shopping at our favorite architectural salvage places in Los Angeles. We had just finished our floors (here are our floors before) and now we needed to look for some new pieces to fit our updates. I just wanted to share with you what I saw and found.
Every time I go to places like these, I forget how amazing they are! We started off at one location of Olde Good Things (we ended at the other location). We ended up going to four different places.
Our style is, I guess you can call it, “industrial chic”. We both like the hardness of metal mixed with beautifully upholstered furniture. It’s a mix of both masculine and feminine and I think that style goes well with our new cement floors (post coming soon!).
Specifically we were looking for a dining room table. We found several ideas for legs, table tops, and bases. We particularly loved these metal legs from vintage machinery but they were out of our budget. They were about $1100 for a pair… and we still needed to make a top!
We fell in love with this metal work bench and we were able to negotiate the price down. We have a large piece of glass that would look beautiful for the top.
There were aisles and aisles of amazing pieces… everything from fixtures, to statues, to old doors and metal tiles.
I fell in love with this eight foot by four foot mirror. Again we haggled with the price and were satisfied with what we got.
I thought these vintage dress forms were neat and would be great in my craft room.
There were several cool metal chairs.
Here are a few more photos.
Amazing right??? I could spend HOURS in there. We are already planning our next trip!
