Architectural & Antiques Elements: Wonderfully Antiquey

Visiting interesting stores forms a great part of my weekend. It's like going for a walk except this one involves lusting over gorgeous furniture. Furniture porn? LOL Anyways, while we were in the inner west this weekend, we decided to drop in to Architectural & Antique Elements

Located in Leichardt at the corner of James Street and Darley Road, Architectural & Antique Elements houses an amazing collection of well.. antiques and architectural elements! :) In addition to the usual antique sideboards, consoles, tables & bench, the split level store also house an amazing collection of antique doors; ranging from old antique chinese doors, vintage french doors to amazing ornate doors that once graced the Rajesthan palace. There were even ornate hundred year old columns and grand fireplace extracted from old houses!

We took a couple of shots in the store before we spotted a sign that says photos not allowed! Oops... Anyways, if you're thinking of restoring an old charmer & are looking for leadlight windows and antique fireplace, Architectural & Antique Elements would be a good bet...

I absolutely adore this sideboard... drools....
