Where it all began
For over two decades Salvage Europe has travelled the European landscape, searching for architectural gems to bring into a modern context.
From every corner of the Salvage Europe sources the world's most unique and original hard surfaces and architectural elements.
Each element has stood the test of time, offering design professionals an incredibly stable and sustainable building material
“Architecture is inhabited SCULPTURE.”
AUTHENTIC, GENUINE & VINTAGE
Our team of experts carefully select each piece of wood for its beauty and quality. Real French oak salvage is our business.
Our rare lumber has survived and travelled an amazing journey. Reclaimed french oak flooring is unique; no two pieces are the same, which leads to time-worn character like a fine wine, connected to weather and place.
We also reclaim beams, planks, and parquetry hundreds of years old salvaged from historic villas, barns, homes and hotels.
Our old growth French oak forest products are as legendary as the forests in which they grew. France has been home to sustainable forest management for centuries, which means that French oak has a noteworthy reputation as a certified sustainable hardwood.
THE HALLMARKS OF TIME
The history of each piece of reclaimed french oak is visible through its patina
