Whether decorative pedestals for the home are simply designed or elegantly crafted from materials like Valencia marble, solid carved woos and gold leaf, they add a uniquely classical and elegant touch to any decor. Pedestals give a room that unusual and visually inviting architectural look that is always so beautiful to look at, along with being functional. Wood pedestals are a fabulous way to impart a warm, welcoming look. They come in a wide variety of types from mahogany to Rosewood, solid wood to wood veneers.
Use beautifully crafted pedestals to display fine artwork, floral arrangements, family photos or other favorite decorative pieces. The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity in home decorating and pedestals are the perfect way to take full advantage of your personal creativity. They are portable as well. When you’ve decided to change the look of a room by moving the furniture, they can be moved along with the other pieces.
There are so many choices in attractive decorative pedestals from those with a Regency style with marble top pedestal to Empire style mirrored pedestal or a gorgeous Tuscan pedestal reminiscent of the Italian Riviera. They blend perfectly and offer the perfect accompaniment to any decor style while they shine with beautiful finishes like antiqued satinwood to antique black. Sophisticated mirrored gold leaf, silver leaf and antiqued mirror panel finishes add just the right accent. Painted wood pedestals quickly become the shining crown in any well decorated room.
Ranging in height from 30 inches to over 50 inches, pedestals can also be displayed in beautiful groupings for a visually stunning effect. A thoughtfully placed wood pedestal adds an earthy and classic look to any foyer, entryway or family room. It becomes the perfect place to display those treasures picked up along the road of life. Wood pedestals come in a brilliant variety of finishes and styles from rustic mahogany to Hampton, Merlot and Antigua styles.
Empire and Regency pedestal styles hearken back to early times in England and France. Both styles are reminiscent of the early 19th Century design movements that took place both in furniture and in popular architectural designs. Special additions like gold leaf accents, brass and silver leaf accents as well as claw legs are indicative of these unique, elegant styles. They add a striking look to any pedestal along with elegance and an aura of exuberance and richness that is not found in many other styles of home furnishings.
For a truly unique look, try the popular White finish wood pedestal with beautiful floral and greenery arrangements. Decorative uses are limitless and offer a great opportunity to let your personal flair and creativity shine. The pedestal will quickly become your go to piece for beautiful home decorating.
