This section covers architectural items, such as building elements, panels, doors, gates, doors and fireplaces. It is a great source for ideas on items to incorporate into schemes in unusual ways, such as converting a roof finial into an individual table lamp, or including a stained glass panel into a room dividing screen or wall.
Architectural elements are a great way to add character to your home, as many have great patina and weathering. Some of these elements, that may once have adorned Country Houses and Mansions, are from a period when like many things of this time, they were designed and made by hand, so by re-using and re-purposing them, it is a way of recycling the past and saving elements of our history that might otherwise be destroyed.
Architectural pieces are also a way of adding some texture into a room and DC member Retrouvius are a company well known for recycling and salvaging items that are then incorporated into some incredible individually designed homes throughout the UK and abroad.
