Every century home, or older home owner/lover needs to visit the Timeless Material Company. With their sister company, Kieswetter Demolition, they are in the business of salvaging architectural materials and cleverly re-purpose timeless pieces of history from century old or heritage homes and buildings that have been demolished.
Their Waterloo showroom is located in an 1840’s barn full of relics from the past. Three floors of incredible finds plus friendly and helpful staff make the visit pleasurable. Another location is in Southampton, which I have not had the opportunity to visit.
Salvaged architectural items can be used for what they were originally intended, or with a creative eye a new purpose can be born. Windows, doors, entryways, staircases, molding, trim are just a few of the thousands pieces available, many with a description of where they originated. Plumbing items such as claw foot tubs, sinks and the kitchen sink have been salvaged.
Timber and boardstock has been salvaged from local barns and factories. Reclaimed lumber is available in a variety of sizes and species and can be incorporated into mantels, ceilings, flooring, structures, countertops, stair parts and more.
An added bonus is that they carry Farrow & Ball paint and wallpaper, only available at a limited number of retailers. A high quality line, orginally from the U.K., that works beautifully in any century home.
Located at: 305 Northfield Dr. E. in Waterloo – and – 194 North Rankin Street in Southampton
