HIGH POINT, N.C. — A.R.T. Furniture says its best-selling Arch. Salvage collection, which has built a following for its traditional furniture designed around repurposed European architectural elements, will be expanded for the October 2018 High Point Market. 
Its Vintage Salvage and Renaissance Salvage are both being introduced at that event.
The whole-house Vintage Salvage collection returns to the European elements first introduced through Arch. Salvage, but in a new transparent Umber finish.  The rich tone applied to parawood solids and cathedral elm veneers enhances the grain of the wood and adds depth to the carved details that are the stand-out motifs of the Arch. Salvage collection.  
“The deeper finish on Vintage Salvage makes a whole new design statement,” said Doug Rozenboom, Senior Vice President, Merchandising & Marketing.   “Arch. Salvage, offered in a Parchment finish, has proven its appeal to consumers.  With the addition of the Umber finish on Vintage Salvage we have expanded our customer’s options in one of our most popular lines.”
Renaissance Salvage, the latest bedroom collection from A.R.T. Furniture, draws on the timeless elegance of Venetian design.  The collection combines repurposed Renaissance architectural motifs with multi-step finishes, silver leaf, marble, and Venetian-style glass, inspired by the art and architecture of the northern Italian area around Venice.
The Renaissance Salvage bedroom collection is constructed with rubberwood solids and elm veneers, and is finished in “San Marco Ivory”, a cool white painted finish.  Individual items are detailed with silver and accented with smoky Venetian-style glass and warm-toned marble.  Signature pieces include the Teatro Panel Bed inspired by classical Palladian windows; the bed’s headboard and footboard are paneled with silvery antiqued Venetian-style glass.  The serpentine-front Vitruvian Bachelors Chest is ornamented with delicately executed scrollwork and topped with highly patterned marble in a rich brown mushroom tone.
Before creating the original Arch. Salvage collection A.R.T. Furniture designers spent time in Europe studying the art and architecture that became the inspiration for the collection.   The company’s unique manufacturing capabilities make it possible to produce Arch. Salvage, Vintage Salvage, and Renaissance Salvage with meticulous detail and still offer the collections at an achievable price point.  “We anticipate a lot of growth for Vintage Salvage and Renaissance Salvage,” said Bryan Edwards, President. “The visually striking and elegant shapes, beautiful details, and fine finishes all align with what our customers have come to expect from A.R.T. Furniture.”
