SMOOTH TAPERED FIBERGLASS COLUMNS:
With Optional Rounded Tuscan Capital & Column Base
Column-Capitals and Bases are frequently disregarded when setting up
interior or exterior columns. Some can be plain and inconspicuous like
the round-Tuscan capital or round Tuscan-base, or more extravagant
like the Corinthian-Capital. Included in one of the five orders of
conventional architecture, long ago the Tuscan-order was created in Rome
and is not portrayed in ancient Greece.
It was incorporated into the traditional orders by a
Renaissance-architectural scholar who believed that the Tuscan-order
comes before the Ionic and Greek-Doric. Tuscan-columns are un-fluted
with a plain base and undecorated capital and entablature. The base can
be round or square and smooth and un-tapered. The capitals affiliated
with Tuscan-columns are usually plainer as well.
No matter how ones select to decorate their column, it is vital to
choose a base and capital that fits into the current dÃƒÃ‚Â©cor of their
home. There are things that must be considered before purchasing a
capital or base. Taking a look at the trim and crown-molding already
inside the home should be the first step. How is the pattern, is it
smooth? Should a formal Corinthian-capital be utilized or would it
overshadow the room? How is the space between the column and the wall?
How high are the ceilings? If there is contemporary, furniture in the
home would a round Tuscan-capital and rounded Tuscan-base be the best
Due to the Tuscan-capital or Tuscan-base simplicity, it is easy to fit
into just about any room. However, if there are multiple antique pieces
with patterns in a Victorian setting then something more elaborate may
be the best choice. Tuscan-capitals are easier as far as ceilings are
concerned mainly because they have literally no decoration. Capitals
that are more decorative require higher ceilings, normally nine-feet and
above. Tuscan-capitals along with Tuscan-bases are very safe choices.
Even though they lack elaborate decorations, their simplicity creates a
majestic atmosphere in any room they are displayed.
