As we shelter in place during these challenging times, we may discover rooms in our home that need to be updated. This living room, which was awarded last week by Detroit Home Magazine, Use of Repurposed Furniture, had quality furniture pieces that just needed a refresh with cozy fabrics, modern finishes, and pops of color.

Architectural Salvage Stakes a Claim
No need to hit the junkyard. Gorgeous salvage finds are now showing up in mainstream stores — and stylish interiors
There was a time when architectural salvage materials could be found for very little money, offering great savings along with a layer of uniqueness.

The appeal of salvaged materials is that they can be made to conform to any style, from traditional to modern. And there is still plenty of potential for savings and a special touch if you can think outside the box.
