About

What is Old House Chic?

Old House Chic began by rescuing and repurposing antique and vintage elements salvaged from old homes. We killed ourselves in the hot and humid Texas summer to salvage as much as possible and we mourned when a house, a home, was demolished. We mourned because of the stories- all of the stories of those antique and vintage elements that were patiently waiting their turn to be rescued- they were now lost.

Waiting their turn? Yes, waiting their turn to tell their story.

Old House Chic is in the business of rescuing stories.

This includes the architectural elements that have stood throughout time or the long forgotten objects that once graced these interiors and made it a home.

We never know the reasons why a beautiful object was left behind, an old home that will soon be demolished or the unique curiosity waiting to be discovered, we only know that, through a serendipitous moment, we came upon these treasures to give them a second chance in our homes once again. We created a new chapter for the antique, the vintage, the salvaged.

"Old House Chic" is our favorite way to decorate: by adding history and old world charm to our decor. Every time eyes fall upon our rescued, salvaged and discovered pieces, we get to tell our chapter of the story: a story of high adventure and intrigue, of avoiding wrecking balls and falling houses, of out running dump trucks and garbage men, of digging through piles to find that one special piece, of sweat, blood and a little cussing to preserve the story of a beautiful object and ensure that it lives on for another chapter. Will your chapter be next? I hope so...

Consider adding a story to your decor from Old House Chic!

    I first came into the business of architectural salvage, antiques and vintage objects when I realized how many old homes were being demolished for the sake of progress. I began rescuing these one of a kind objects that were left behind.

Old House Chic is a decorating label we have given to our unique style of interior/exterior design elements after we realized a trend was reoccurring within our own home environment. With each unique piece added to our home, either as a focal point or blended into the renovation of our own old home, we realized we would rather use rescued and reused antique, vintage, historical and salvaged elements that come with a meaningful story. When you shop through our offerings, be sure to read each story present in each of the listings and know that when you buy from Old House Chic, you are continuing the story by ensuring the history within each piece lives on.
