Welcome to SemperNova! We rescue and restyle furniture and home decor that would otherwise be left for the land fill. Here you will see everything from unique window frames, interesting tables, chairs and stools and pretty much anything else we can salvage and reinvent into a beautiful new version of its original self.

The SemperNova philosophy is much like the way we feel people need to think of themselves or view others. That being, beauty comes from within and a little bit of history, life experience, and signs of time ... all add interest and character to tell the story.
