Retrouvius is an architectural salvage and design business based in London that was established in 1993. Some of their projects have been very architectural, others purely decorative. Whatever the case their motto is "bridging the gap between destruction and construction". I really love the idea of using salvaged items and repurposing them in new ways. (Unfortunately shops that carry such items are pretty much non-existent here). The folks at Retrouvius do a beautiful job of blending the old with the new.
