. . . a history of elegant design
Wood-corbels have been an essential element of architecture throughout many centuries. These modest but sturdy architectural works provide backing to extruding surfaces, which enables them to bear heavy weight. In essence, corbels are identified by their "beak like" form. Originally manufactured from stone or concrete, the Victorian-Era introduced the idea of wooden-corbels. Since wood-corbels could be produced in smaller dimensions than the heavier stone corbels, it permitted the utilization of corbels to go beyond cathedrals and libraries and move into less majestic type environments such as homes and smaller buildings.
Initially corbels were first and foremost used for only practical purposes. Even though they were created in a decorative manner, they were created out of necessity. With the invention of wooden-corbels, designs became more prominent instead of functional. Wood-corbels can be found with lifelike characters like horses, angels, fruit, and carved leafs. Included in the amalgamation of decorative corbels are metal-corbels. With lustrous designs and exclusive shapes, metal-corbels offer an ornamental affect perfectly matched to accentuate granite, concrete, stone, and various kinds of wood.
As far as ornamental wood-brackets or corbels, one of the broadest varieties is the Greco Roman. Even though particular designs will vary somewhat, the identical fundamental scrolling model from the widest element to the smallest, connects the many diverse motifs. Whether the decorative details are basket weaves or leaf detail, the basic shape keeps every unique corbel with an identifiable appearance, maintaining the beauty and exclusivity that corbels have handed down throughout decorative history. With conspicuously contemporary selections like the Chesapeake-corbels, and turn-of-the-century designs including the Traditional-Bracket, there are plenty of models to choose from. There is also a broad range of heavier or lighter grains to select from such as maple or oak.
Another unique decorative piece that has become more prevalent in modern day home decorating is wood-ceiling medallions. Wood-ceiling medallions are installed in the middle of a ceiling over a ceiling fan, lamp, or chandelier. In the past, ceiling-medallions were only carved from wood, but now they can be found in various inexpensive, lightweight materials made of molded resin or urethane. Ceiling-medallions can be similar in detail like wooden-corbels, and vary in style and depth.
