Wood carvings bring style and function into the modern home. Throughout time, wood has been a fundamental building material with warm textural characteristics unlike any other. Man has always had an inclination towards art, decoration and ornamentation, and the development of intricate carving tools fueled this interest, created the age-old profession of wood carving, one that would eventually fuse decoration and art with architecture.
Traditional styles of wood carving generally reflect the era in which the style saw its highest point of popularity. Some examples include Greek Revival architecture, where the wood column was symbolic of stateliness, the Victorian era, where elaborate wood mouldings, medallions and details were prevalent, and the Southern Colonial architectural style, where the white plantation shutter came to symbolize the style itself.
