Salvaged objects juxtaposed with modern furnishings creates balance. Warm and worn characteristics of the old offset the sleek and clean qualities of the new. I love these 3 salvaged items that are upcycled in the Austin, Texas home of Anne Suttles and Sam Shah.
The rusty 7Up sign is hung sideways on a sliding door.
The dining table is made from two old Mexican doors, and four old wooden chairs sit next to a new fiberglass one with modern pendants hanging above.
A vintage old Leaded Pennant Gas sign in a bedroom with a contemporary stainless steel ceiling fan.
I love to find reclaimed and salvaged accessories for the home and usually hit the Brimfield Antique Show for such items. However, since Brimfield occurs only three times a year (May, July, September), in off-months, my “go to” source is Water & Main. If I’m looking for something specific, I’ll contact Tracy Foley and she’ll track it down.
