Home and Salvage takes the hunt out of finding treasure

BY KELLY MERRITT
Florida Weekly Correspondent

“We love salvaging, especially anything that can add architectural history to a home.”

That statement by Tina Langeloh, who opened Home and Salvage on Taylor Street in Naples in November 2013, is only part of the story. Mrs. Langeloh likens visiting the shop to going on a treasure hunt.

Salvaged ceiling tins, and reclaimed furnishings and decorative pieces — anything she can get her hands on — make up the eclectic inventory in the 3,000-squarefoot space. Everything is one of a kind.

Mrs. Langeloh had an interior-design business specializing in better-quality furniture for some 20 years.

“We’ve loved salvaging items — highend, large-scale pieces to small accents — our whole lives,” she says. “Now, HGTV has a show on salvaged items, and it’s nice that people are recognizing the value in buying something that’s preserving the past.

TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY Tina Langeloh at Home and Salvage TIM GIBBONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY She and her husband went to middle school and high school together, but didn’t start dating until after college. They are lifelong partners and were together for almost 10 years before marrying in 2001, so they have been together more than 24 years. This is a labor of love for the couple, the ideal combination of her design brains and his brawn.

“I began collecting things I figured I’d use later in design projects — and we just accumulated,” says Mrs. Langeloh, explaining how the birth of her store came about. “The result is a totally eclectic collection of things from Nashville to Miami, Michigan and everywhere else.” For Home and Salvage, she also accepts consignment pieces.

Mrs. Langeloh plans to host monthly events during season and will take special requests for finding unique pieces. Those interested in consigning pieces to the shop can email photos and a brief description to info@homeandsalvage.com. ¦
