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?!
