Architectural Antiques                  & Design


In West Ashley, just 8 minutes from downtown Charleston, there is an unassuming facade at the back of a deep parking lot, where you can let your imagination run wild.  Architectural Antiques & Design is a 4000 sq. ft. warehouse of possibilities, with two thirds of an acre of building salvage, antique iron, and wonderful pieces for the garden.  The collection, amassed over 25 years, includes doors, windows, and mantles from Charleston, as well as 19th century iron and building parts from around the country and around the world.

  • Our collection included antique, vintage, and decorative items like furniture, lamps, mirrors and decor.
  • Our sister store, CIRCE, is only one block away, for custom lamps, furniture, and decor, as well as drapery and upholstery fabrics at 35% over wholesale.
