About Us.

Looking for the unusual?

Located in West Ashley, just 8 minutes from downtown Charleston, there is an unassuming facade at the back of a deep parking lot where you can let your imagination run wild!  

Architectural Antiques & Design is a 4000 sq. ft. warehouse of possibilities, with two thirds of an acre of antique iron, building salvage, and wonderful cast  stone for the garden.


Bygone craftsmanship and materials are available.

The collection, amassed over 25 years, includes doors, windows, mantles, balusters, case trim, tile, and columns from Charleston, as well as antique iron and building parts from around the country and around the world!

We also love the decorative arts!

Besides architectural salvage, our collection also includes antique, vintage, and decorative items like furniture, lamps, rugs, mirrors, lighting, and decor.

We also order fine fabrics at 35% over wholesale, and have bolt goods priced well under wholesale!

our inventory is ever changing.

Salvage from a city rich in its architecural heritage.

Repurposing is at the heart of what we do.

Looking for salvaged doors to add character and interest to your home?  Whether using in new construction, or retrofitting into an existing opening, we have something for you.

Our doors are ao great on barn sliders!  

We upscale salvaged items to enhance your environment.

We use local craftsmen to fabricate tables and lamps out of antique iron and found objects, making our store unique!

Wrought iron is still malleable and can not only be repaired and re-purposed, but also adapted into gates, cocktail tables, and headboards

Every space, in home or garden, is different and should reflect your personality and interests.

Many of the pieces we carry are one of a kind and with some imagination and adaptation, they will enhance your family's lives for years to come!

A Melange of the new and the old.

A unique perspective.

We love good design and quality, whether it's a 1790's English chest or a contemporary Louis Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck; we appreciate the look and the lines!  We are not limited to the vintage or antique, but also look at good contemporary product, knowing that our homes are reflective of our past, present and future.  

Our homes have to work for our lifestyles today!

Brand names at great prices.

We are shoppers, too!

When we acquire for home and garden, we also look at quality manufacturers and how we can bring in product at 'better than wholesale' pricing from the secondary market.

The Collected Home.

Set your home apart from others by choosing a look acquired over time and not just purchased in a one stop shopping environment.

We are all individuals.  

Our present is molded by our past and our homes and gardens should be reflective of that

Your Inspired Garden.

Let our cast stone inspire your own garden.

The classical elements and the lush green of the Carolina Lowcountry will truly inspire you to make your garden a special refuge, no matter where you live! 

Whether you are working with a designer, or if you are your own designer, let us provide the hardscape!

Cast stone has all the durability of concrete, and yet because the aggregate is pulverized quartz, sand, and Portland cement, it can capture all the detail of antique originals made of marble, lead, iron, or terra cotta.

Classic forms are a great contrast for nature's beauty.

The company we carry is also the licensee for both The Historic Charleston Foundation and the Biltmore Collection, and their specialty is to find antique pieces which are either one of a kind or have fallen out of copyright, and to reproduce them in cast stone.  

We also sell antique and vintage garden decor.

When thinking of urns, statuary, plaques, & fountains for your home, stop by to see our assortment.
