Imported Corbels
 

Our collection of domestically produced corbels include a wealth of design options suitable for a variety of uses. However our imported corbels are an elegant option that is worth considering for any new construction project or any remodeling job. These important traditional examples of architectural trim are manufactured from solid hardwood including cherry, linden wood and maple. The workmanship matches the quality of the material.

Our imported corbels reflect the workmanship of talented craftsmen. The detailing of each decorative carving is executed with precision and clarity. The depth of the decorative motifs in each of the imported corbel choices makes the carving an essential element of the design rather than just a decorative overlay. The themes chosen for the carving elements are taken from classic designs and realigned to incorporate contemporary functionality with traditional ornamentation.

These imported corbels are designed to be load bearing as well as decorative. They can be used to support shelves, counters and even fireplace mantles. Their original purpose was functional and with our corbels, function remains important today. Included in the carving details are traditional forms such as acanthus leaves and grape bunches. These representations go back to the decorative carving found on ancient Greek columns and other components of their public buildings, including cornices and corbels.

Some of our imported corbels mount flush with the wall from bottom to top. Others have a gap between the two, arcing out and up from the bottom in a carved design and then returning to the wall’s surface at the top. More design options for our imported corbels include carved scrolls anchoring the corbel’s base with floral arrangements carved near the top. There is a design with a scroll at both top and bottom and a rosette on the corbel’s facing.

Other more elaborate features include a cherub carved into the face of the corbel and a sunflower mounted at the corbel’s center surrounded by leaves and bordered by a row of rosettes. The range of carving options in these imported corbels is remarkable. The modern incorporation of classic carved architectural images into our corbel collection will provide a design to suit every taste.
