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.

thank you! great interiors, and yes to salvaging items: it brings a soul to the place.

these rooms are beautiful and yet look like you could actually live in them (somthing I struggle with in a lot of design magazines, stores etc).

I'm in love with the striped lampshade - yes please!
