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.
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!
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!

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!

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.
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.
Our clients have adapted our products for home and garden and their resourcefulness is amazing!
The Master Bedroom was transformed using Les Indiennes bedding and Scalamandre linen on the windows.
The living room titled, 'The Collected Room,' mixed elements from across the centuries, updating them for today's home.
Express yourself in your environment with things that are unique. Many of the architectural salvage 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!
Remember, locally salvaged product means local provenance-many of these pieces have stories to tell!
