When we do apartment renovations, particularly on older buildings, one of the things we try hard to do is to preserve the original parts as much as possible. From doorknobs to lighting fixtures, cabinets to windows – they all have this certain history with the apartment that we think should remain intact.
Sometimes, though, the owners aren’t so sure. Other times, these historical pieces are so badly damaged that restoration isn’t possible. In this case, we need to find replacements. Having done this for so many years, we’ve been to most of the best antique stores in New York City, so we thought we’d share with you some of our favorites.
