Retrouvius


Designers' Block featured old shelves from The Patent Office in London available through Retrouvius, an architectural salvage and design business. After going to their site...WOW...I'm in love. How cute would that race rocker look in a bedroom or nursery? And I can't say enough about the desk, the lamps, the over-sized mirror...just WOW. Why must they be located in London?! Can we say trip?

what a find! this looks like a dream-come-true style shopping trip, indeed.

also, i just got around to reading your earlier post on blogging etiquette and really appreciated it. so far, my experience with blogging has only been positive. i *did* have a tiny issue with folks spamming my comments in the beginning (by requesting that readers fill out some survey completely unrelated to the content of my blog), but i think (hope) i worked that out by adding the word verification feature.

i dig your perspective! "please sir" rocks.

Interesting...but way too far, and re-furbish stuff are not popular here..dont know why.
I hop over to see what's up and obviously, you are one of the very hardworking bloggers I now know, updating everyday so we can enjoy, happy weekend :)

i'm ready to go! we can rent a container for the stuff we'll bring home! but, i think their might be some rock, paper, scissors for the rocking chair ;).

jae said...

I'll take the drink trolley. I can see I'll be spending too much time looking through their design projects. Did you see the train carriage project? Love that!

littlebyRD said...

Oh yes - Wow is the right word. These are wonderful!

Jan said...

That is all a Wowser. My kind of digs. I have never said that before. Digs? Oh well, it seems to fit. I love things like that. Thanks again Miss Pleasie. You do not disappoint.

Have a great weekend.

i really like this. it's a skightly steampunkish in feel, which i'm very fond of. most of the pieces in my home have a similar look, which we've gotten from the antique faires and whatnot.

Sandra Ree said...

Would love the setup in the first photo, definitely!

Laura @ Shorehouse Chic. said...

I love that first photo, too -- and am dying to know the grey paint color (I'm obsessed with finding a good "bedroom grey").

Thanks for sharing retrouvius. Totally my kind of site!!

please sir said...
