Road Trip: Architectural Accents in Atlanta

Architectural Accents | 2711 Piedmont Road | Atlanta, GA
https://www.facebook.com/ArchitecturalAccents?fref=ts 
An Atlanta institution for over 30 years, Architectural Accents is the place to go for amazing British and French 19th Century antiques. A number of 18th and early 20th century pieces from France, England, and America can also be found there along with a full range of high quality reproductions.  











An ornate facade hints at the treasures that await once you pass through the front doors. From columns and claw foot tubs, entry doors and staircases, pews and pediments - the 30,000 square foot showroom has become a destination for professional architects, interior decorators, movie set designers and builders from around the globe. You really are transported to a different time and place while wandering around - so much to admire and appreciate. Here are a few favorites from my recent trip. 


A jaw dropping collection of gorgeous pre-World War I tiles from England.

More of the over 10,000 tiles available in inventory.

A sampling of the 2,000 + antique doors that are stripped
and restored prior to being sold. Many of the doors
are custom fit for their new homes in the onsite
woodworking shop. 

A vast assortment of antique back plates are
available to add a historically accurate finishing touch.

These stunning pieces are part of a large assortment of
ornate 19th century French ironwork gates, balconies and railings.

A glorious display of stained glass windows that have been
painstakingly cleaned and restored in the onsite glass shop.

These amazing mid 19th Century columns were salvaged from a church in London
that was damaged during construction of the Chunnel, and can be yours for a mere $125K.

Reproduction pieces created by Architectural Accents are left
outside for a few months to develop a natural patina before being sold.

Wow I will HAVE to check this place out! Never been there and I grew up here in the Atlanra area. Looks like it must be expensive but certainly worth a trip even if just to see the history! Thanks for such an interesting post!
