A well-appointed home doesn't start at a chain store or warehouse. The most alluring objects are those which have withstood time, have known laughter and candlelight, and bring with them the richness of having been of use to another.
Art of Salvage begins the process of creating a chair with a chair: found and recovered objects are restored and brought to new life as artistically rendered home goods.
Fine furnishings, light fixtures and textiles: going green never looked better.
Art of Salvage is a Silicon Valley-based interior design house established by owner/designer Michael Avila.
Equally at home in a Paris flat or a Mendocino beach house, Michael's pieces offer a chic, minimalist silhouette and draw you deeper into the beautiful, hand-crafted detail. Combining fine and vintage textiles with unusual or one-of-a-kind furnishings, every object is recreated and unique.
Whether it is an elaborate dining set or a sleek chaise, an armoire or a settee, the spirit of craftsmanship and elegance can be felt in all of Art of Salvage's designs.
