Our Book - 2nd Edition, Reclaiming Style

Reclaiming Style, Using salvaged materials to create an elegant home (2nd Edition)

From the publisher —

‘The interior-design side of this architectural-reclamation and vintage-furniture business is headed up by the delightful and deeply artistic Maria Speake. Her use of materials – many of them reclaimed – and colour ensure her projects always sing with modernity.’ House & Garden

Adam Hills and Maria Speake, the partners behind architectural salvage and design company Retrouvius, combine their salvage work with one of the most sought-after interior design practices in Britain.

Reclaiming Style goes with them behind the scenes, from the demolition site to the warehouse to the process of designing beautiful interiors using reclaimed materials. Charted over twelve locations, ranging from a 17th-century cottage to a converted barn to a 1970s towerblock apartment, the company’s unique style goes far beyond a mere commitment to salvage and sustainable design and offers an inspiring new vision for sophisticated, thoughtfully constructed living spaces.
