Have you ever watched one of those furniture restoration or interior design home makeover shows? They make restoring and refurbishing furniture look fun and easy. While the final product is fun, the process of getting there isn’t quite as easy as they make it look. However, if you’re in the Sarasota area and love the idea of getting one-of-a-kind decorative pieces for your home, consider visiting Sarasota Architectural Salvage (SAS).
Founded in 2003 by Jesse White, SAS is a 10,000 square foot amalgam of beautifully restored, recycled furniture. White and his team keep a regularly updated stock of pieces by finding buildings that will be remodeled or even demolished. They also work very closely with various historical societies and preservation groups. Before anything gets thrown out or destroyed, White and his team offer an environmentally friendly option of removing anything they feel would be a good fit for a home or business and bring it to the shop. That way, these furniture items are restored and reused instead of trashed.
Because they work with such a large array of business types, the ever-changing inventory at the shop is quite diverse. They don’t just carry furniture. In the warehouse, customers will find vintage windows, doors, gates, garden art, lighting fixtures, and even custom-built furniture. Just this year, they received a Best of 2017 award for Best Antiques in Sarasota by SRQ magazine.
If you find a piece in the warehouse that you love but are wondering how you’ll get it home, simply call the shipping experts at Pak Mail on Bee Ridge Road. Whether you live out of town, out of state, or in another country, Pak Mail will pack and ship your antiques, furniture, or home decor items. To ensure safety during transportation, Pak Mail even offers custom crating services for any fragile, large, or valuable items. Pak Mail Sarasota offers multiple shipping options including ground, blanket wrap, freight, and air services to fit our customers’ specific needs.
