About Us


‘So, who are we and what do we do?  We are a couple of creative characters with a passion in upcycling the unwanted leftovers of Australia’s industrial past.

With a family background in building, it was very likely that Darren would acquire the knowledge to design and construct, at an early age.  With those life skills behind him, he developed a real appreciation for all things old, which lead him into antique restoration. Acquiring qualifications in French polishing.

Cameron grew up with farming background in rural Scotland where everything was repurposed and always reused!  Cameron moved to Australia 30 years ago and met Darren not long after arriving.  Darren passed on a lot of skills to Cameron and together over the years they have designed, restored, and built many pieces of furniture, primarily from disused recycled timber.

Moving on from using only timber they had tossed around the idea to creating furniture and sculptural lighting using recycled industrial machinery and other factory items which has now become Century Salvage.

As owners of Century Salvage, Darren and Cameron are excited by their latest incarnation, working with old industrial machinery and equipment and hope you enjoy the pieces as much as they enjoy creating them.’
