Corbels, Color & Texas Countryside

Twice a year, some of the Corbel gang hook up to a trailer and head out to the beautiful countryside of East Texas. Having been around the architectural salvage business for 10 years, we have fostered close relationships with a few European importers. These companies hand-select doors in desired heights and widths that are perfect for our clients who are building custom homes. We meet these pickers at a market in Roundtop, TX, to collect and transport these special orders back home to The Corbel. These shipments usually happen twice a year, in the spring and fall.

The whole event usually lasts for 3 weeks. Selection is superb at these times of year and we look forward to making the trip.

This year we loaded up the trailer, headed out to the Roundtop area, and set up our own shop for the first time in our fancy new booth. The booth was completed just two weeks prior to the show. We plan to put the Corbel touch on it and make it our permanent home when we attend this market. We will showcase our reclaimed, antique wood products, doors, architectural salvage, custom furniture and of course, corbels!

Excess II which is across the road from Excess I, is the name of the building where our booth is located.

Above is a little glimpse at what we started with this spring. We can't wait to put our touch on the space!

Below are a few of the things we brought home that we gathered from our "pickers"... Enjoy the eye-candy!

Doors, painted boxes, corbels, green bowls and other unique architecturals.

Look at all that color! It must be spring!

Of all the beautiful things we brought home, we are really excited about the new selection of doors and corbels we now have available here at The Corbel.
