Although the Waldorf Astoria, which closed in the spring of 2017 for a three-year renovation project that will see many of its guest rooms converted to private condominium apartments, won’t be welcoming guests for at least another year, but it’s possible to now purchase a piece of the storied hotel for your home.

The hotel, partnering with Olde Good Things, an architectural antique dealer, is selling chandeliers, marble and wooden mantles, mirrors, and console sinks, among other items, on line.

The choice of items includes doors from the Marilyn Monroe Suite and over 2,000 lighting fixtures including sconces and brass lanterns. There are less expensive items as well, including steak knives, egg spoons, and polished bronze swan hooks.

When the hotel reopens, it will have some 300 to 500 guest rooms. It had 1,413 rooms at the time it closed for renovations.
