Welcome to

Metropolitan Artifacts

Metropolitan Monastery Artifact
Inside these doors lies history, patina, color, texture, pieces hand crafted and touched by generations.

In this culture of big box stores and furniture catalogues aren’t we all craving character and authenticity?  We are a treasure trove of passionately crafted European and American vintage architecturals and décor that have become rare and represent lost arts.

If we do not have what you are looking for, we are happy to locate it for you or fabricate a custom piece.

We welcome you to visit our showroom and surround yourself with a stunning curation of these objects of art dating back to the late 1700’s. We have amassed an exceptional mix of European and American architectural antiques over the last 37 years, hand picking each treasure.

Since many architectural antiques require minor modification in order to work in their new application, Metropolitan Artifacts offers custom fabrication to suit your specific design needs.
