Elegant. Refined. Exclusive.
Archiped's exclusive designs exude an aura of elegance and good taste. The streamlined, classic lines have a modern sensibility about them that lead us to call our Jacques Lamy collection Modern Classics. In addition to this fresh collection, Archiped faithfully reproduces antiques by making the molds directly from the originals, producing accurate first generation reproductions that can be difficult to discern from the antique originals.

The History of Garden Ornaments
Garden ornamentation has been integral to public and private garden spaces for more than two thousand years. One of the earliest archaeological sites displaying an abundance of garden statuary is found in the Villa of Poppaea at Oplontis. Located near Mount Vesuvius, the country villa was covered in volcanic ash and preserved intact when the volcano erupted in 49.A.D.
Forty-four statues had been placed around the pool and courtyard. Their arrangement and subject matter differed greatly from pieces found in the courtyards of Pompeii. A typical Pompeiian home would have had a centaur or satyr displayed, whereas the Villa of Poppaea featured light-hearted pieces such as a statuette of a boy holding a duckling.
Working with Archiped
In an era hallmarked by off shore call centers and the anonymous clicks of a mouse, Archiped customers find it refreshing to talk to a live person who puts the customers’ needs ahead of profits.
The Stanzels strive to make your experience with Archiped effortless and easy. When customers call Archiped, they speak to either Richard or Shelley Stanzel. Shelley M. Stanzel will then personally assist you through the quoting, ordering and shipping processes so that you will be able to quickly determine which Archiped works best for your installation. She ensures that your order is given personal attention. Delivery options will be discussed and a quote will then be prepared that includes the hard costs for shipping.
When the customers receive shipping dates, they can rely on Archiped to ship their orders when promised.
