This salvage haul came from a London penthouse that was decorated only fifteen years ago. Every part of the interior was new and was being ripped out and to be destroyed.
The fact that the material's life-cycle was so short is because of today's style-cycle - trends and fashions are changing quicker each year as we are bombarded with imagery through social media and the next "must haves".
Two decades ago hardwood iroko worktops from secondary schools were being burnt on site - Adam began saving them and after appearing in Maria's design projects; they are now a mainstay of our stock.
This apartment was of its time fifteen years ago. Although high quality its interior is out of fashion to its new owners. We reclaimed as much as we could of the surface decoration from the apartment, stock such as gold plated bathroom hardware, burr-maple veneer panelling and cast glass columns.
