Wood carving can be traced back to ancient times, beginning with the hieroglyphics and sarcophagi of Ancient Egyptians, to specimens of early Christian reliefs from Greece & Rome, through the intricately carved churches of the Middle Ages, to the breathtaking beauty of Renaissance sculptures. Though modern day architecture may not achieve the intricate detail of these ornate pieces of history, the effect can still be achieved with strategically placed pieces of carved wood, specifically carved crown moulding such as the type offered by Osborne Wood Products.
Crown moulding has historically been used for topping or “capping” walls, pilasters, and cabinets and is most often used to create interior or exterior cornice assemblies such as those over doors or windows. In modern times, crown moulding has simply or extravagantly graced the interiors of homes, businesses, and places of worship as decorative trim where walls and ceilings meet.
For a simple, contemporary effect, you can use either the traditional or Contemporary Crown Moulding to add a finishing touch of sophistication without intricate carvings. The traditional style crown moulding is the perfect option for subtle detail that will flawlessly complement your home. Guaranteed to not overpower, the traditional style can turn your home into an understated masterpiece. You will be amazed at the huge difference that just a simple crown moulding will accomplish in your space.
