over thirty years Architectural Antiques has taken a lot of satisfaction in knowing that each antique architectural element
that passes through our store is just on it’s way to a better place, an environment where it will be just as appreciated
as the home or building it recently left.And for those who believe that a single antique architectural element has the ability
to transform a room or building into something of beauty and harmony, Architectural Antiques is a place for you . . . a place
where that transformation is brought to an art.
We admit that it’s not a painting to be hung on a wall,
but art it is. You’re surrounded by it every day in your home, your office or in whatever environment you spend time.

a single piece of the past to magically convert sterile environments. This is the reason that some of the top designers in
the country shop at our store.
Past Environments into Yours" . . . far more than just words to us at Architectural Antiques. Creating environments that fit your life is a job we take seriously!
