The most eco-friendly way to build is to reuse materials. With a treasure trove of antique accessories, this 6,000-square-foot South End showroom makes it easy. From stained-glass windows to garden statues, you’ll find period pieces in stunning condition. If you’re looking for something specific — say, a Victorian doorknob to match the rest of your hardware — the savvy staffers at Restoration Resources can make recommendations based on style, or even hunt down the original pattern.
