Von Herberstein Imports

Architects, interior designers and homeowners have always been influenced by classical European architecture. Many people look to the timeless elegance and beauty of a bygone era for inspiration for their homes and lifestyles. What is missing, however, is the authentic milieu: genuine building materials, from floors to roof tiles, honeyed by the passing of time.

Von Herberstein Imports prides itself in the exclusive importing of antique building elements, offering the discerning homeowner a range of lovingly restored antique building materials and ornaments from veritable European villas, old farm houses, castles and chateaux.

These have been sourced and recovered from Europe by trusted scouts, who share the philosophy of Von Herbertsein Imports in conserving superior craftsmanship and the artistry of old and giving it new life in today's world.
