Arch. Salvage by A.R.T.

by Star Furniture on December 7, 2016

Artistic, reflective, and timeless.

These words ring true once you’ve laid eyes on the Arch. Salvage Collection by A.R.T.

This collection is so artistic, with intricate detailing meticulously placed around even the tiniest knob of a drawer! It’s also characterized by other features, such as the carved corbels on a dresser, intended to reflect neoclassical structures as ordinary as a mantelpiece. The Arch. Salvage collection is a timeless beauty. It’s a tasteful combination of traditional European architectural detailing AND thoughtful functionality for today’s living.

Sounds pretty amazing, don’t you think?

This collection aims at bringing the old architectural elements of the past to craft a new, traditionally-styled collection your vintage-loving soul will simply yearn for! 🙂 Let’s take a look at what A.R.T. “salvaged” up for us in the the bedroom:

The Bedroom

This first piece, called the Arch. Salvage Chambers Panel Bed, will surely bring out the well-deserved, inner duchess living in you.

A captivating cornice molding crowns over the edge of the headboard with a beautifully carved shield and acanthus leaf design right in the middle!


Functionality really comes into play since the bed has a flip-top bench at it’s foot, with a cedar-lined storage compartment inside. There’s really no such thing as too much storage. ;P

Similarly, the Arch. Salvage Wren Dresser also uses the acanthus leaf motif, which is placed on a pair of decorative corbels. These rest upon the dramatic pilasters framing the dresser, much like an elaborately decorated, neoclassical European building:


Taking inspiration from the 18th century Adam’s Bro. period, which actually revived classical Roman motifs, a Greek meander carving is stamped right across the front of all nine drawers. This really adds that extra touch of detailing that makes each piece sooo beautiful.

Other bedroom pieces follow the same traditional style, with a stunning, casual Parch finish that provides the worn, sun-bleached look to this collection:


Plus, the Cady Nightstand even incorporates a USB port, how handy is that?

Let’s move on to the dining room.

The Dining Room

Here we have a real jaw-dropper. The Arch. Salvage Pearce Dining Table is characterized by its unique blend of materials, including hardwood solids and elm veneers:


A hint of industrial rusticness accents this piece with its’ metal X stretcher support between the scrolls and struts of the table, somewhat reminiscent of an old balcony rail. This design, paired with its’ provincial hardwood floor pattern on the tabletop, shows architectural inspiration from floor to ceiling! 🙂

Add the Arch. Salvage Reeves Host Chair to each end of this table to add some tufted upholstery to the mix:


Gorgeous attention to detail is accentuated by the chair’s nailhead trim, and even more striking are the contrasting fabrics on the inside and exterior parts (which includes hand painted linen!) of the chair.

There are so many things I love about this collection, you’ll simply be blown away! The collection as a whole is a tribute to the old that remains timeless, as historical structures and elements are embodied within each piece and repurposed for us here today!
