Tucked away in Northwest London, Retrouvius is the interior design world’s best-kept secret, dealing in architectural salvage and other interesting vintage materials from the Victorian era up to the 1970s. Stock is constantly changing, and there’s no telling what curiosities will greet you from one week to the next. Interiors enthusiasts can pick up vintage lampshades (many of which are suspended from the ceiling as you walk around the store) picture frames, old anatomy posters, hardwood tops, flooring and other retro furniture. Retrouvius also offers design and architectural services, working with former factories and barns to create desirable living spaces using the materials they have sourced in unusual and interesting ways. Retrouvius was founded in 1993 by husband and wife team Maria Speake (who works on the design side) and Adam Hills (in charge of sourcing products). They also published a book in 2012 introducing Retrouvius and its philosophy and detailing several of their design projects.Show lessRead more
