Corbels and WOOD BRACKETS - HELPFUL INFO
Wooden corbels are timeless classics, no traditional home should be without them. Some of the most popular corbel designs are based on compositions with acanthus or palmate leaf. These carved details are deriving from ancient Greek designs. During the revival of classical architectural ornamentation inspired by nature in the past few centuries, carved wood corbels and brackets were no exception to its application. Acanthus leaf ornamentation is very popular corbels embellishment.
When extended vertically, acanthus leaf ornament has a very soft and regular appearance. In contrast to acanthus ornament, acanthus corbels design has a more vigorous, dynamic, and exuberant presence, intensifying the contrast between smooth surface and texture on the overall corbels and brackets design.
Classical carved wood ornamentation based on thick, luxuriant, scalloped leaves of acanthus plant featured on our Huston corbels, and Portland corbels decorated a myriad of architectural components including corbels and decorative brackets. Acanthus ornamentation provides sumptuous visual interest for the controlled yet graceful curves of wooden corbels.
