Customer Showcase

 
 


This customer purchased this dolphin and shell motif terracotta frieze which originally lined the top of the Ellis Auditorium in Memphis Tennessee.  He also purchased the edging stone as well as the balconies from Olde Good Things and designed this unique pool-front courtyard. 

This project is a good example of how recycling antique architectural elements is becoming more prevalent
in new building construction.

 
 

 

 
 

 



This customer designed a period kitchen and used many original details.  They were able to utilize the etched-glass windows from this old set of Victorian arch-top doors.  They re-glazed and cut them down and reworked the original frame of the doors.  Then they fashioned them to work as "shutter" type interior windows which open to exterior clear windows.

This is a good example of how old architectural details can be used in an original setting.
