Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In this, their first book, Maria and Adam give an insight into the world of Retrouvius and the interiors they create. The book goes behind the salvage scenes, from the demolition site to the warehouse to the process of designing with reclaimed materials. Charted over twelve locations, ranging from a 17th-century priory to a converted barn to a 1970s high-rise apartment, Reclaiming Style shows how, how, in clever hands, what looks like trash can be transformed into modern-day interiors treasure. The company's unique style goes far beyond a mere commitment to salvage and sustainable design and offers an inspiring new vision for sophisticated, thoughtfully constructed living spaces.

Includes index.

Retrouvius bring a distinctive contemporary eye to designing with salvage, using a intuitive sense of colour and the flow of a domestic space to marry ancient and modern elements. Not only ecologically friendly, their interiors are also sophisticated, elegant, and beautifully finished.
