Salvaged!

Happy New Year!  We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season- we are happy to be back!  While visiting relatives over the holidays, I decided to check out a salvage store in South Carolina.  I found some seriously high style at this strip-mall store full of contractors shopping to find odds-and-ends for their construction projects.  I was expecting carpet remnants and broken granite slabs.  Boy was I wrong!  Here are a few photos I snapped while I was shopping...

REAL oriental rugs in fabulous colors for $49 and $59.  They are small but perfect for a bathroom or to go in front of a door.  They are hand-knotted wool, made in Iran.  I grabbed one for my children's bathroom!


Reproduction Wegner Wishbone chairs for $79.  They came in 3 different finishes and would be adorable in a breakfast room.  I took a picture of the limed finish- so fab! 

Terracotta Garden stools in round and square shapes for $49.  These would be so pretty on a patio or front porch!


A leather-and-chrome chair that was scaled down so it would be perfect in a house with small rooms.  It can be a challenge to find smaller-scaled furniture in today's world of oversized everything.  I believe it was $599 and may be a Restoration Hardware piece.

This tufted linen upholstered bed (headboard, rails and footboard too) was gorgeous.  I believe the queen was $799 or $899 which really isn't a bad price for such a nice bed.

This turquoise console caught my eye for one of my clients.  I love the Asian style and worn finish.

If you need a pair of tufted linen chairs, you can't beat the price of these.  I believe they were $399 each.  The turned legs and casters add style!

I fell in love with these limed glass-front cabinets.  They had a pair of them, and they would be so gorgeous flanking a fireplace and giving a built-in look without the built-in pricetag.  I can't remember how much they were, but I think they were around $1,000 each, which is a fantastic price.

Wouldn't this Chinese apothecary chest be the perfect tv console? 

This big trestle table would be so gorgeous in an informal dining room.  Perfect for a big family!

Have you been to a salvage store before?  I wonder if they are all as good as this one?!

This looks like Southeastern Salvage...we have one in Nashville...and I love it! I actually bought 2 of the white long garden benches (in the background of your garden stool image) for either side of our outdoor front entryway! Take care, Caroline

You are so right... Southeastern Salvage rocks, especially this particular store (on Garner's Ferry Rd). I live in Columbia and try to head out that way at least once a month. They have a pretty good (& well priced) rug selection and I often see pieces from Restoration Hardware & Ballard Designs. Last time I was there they had fabulous Ballard chairs & lamp bases.

Here's the website for those interested: www.southeasternsalvage.com
Looks like the columbia store is the only one in the carolinas. The good news is that it''s not terribly far away from I-77 & pretty easy to find.
