have been used like brackets for thousands of years to support
projecting walls. Today, corbels are used to support ceilings,
beams, arches, fireplace mantels, and shelving. In some cases,
corbels are used for purely decorative purposes. Corbels
can enhance the beauty of your home’s interior.
Corbels are available in many designs. You
can choose to bring in corbels using stylized acanthus
leaves for decoration, a practice that dates back to ancient
Greece. If you love the ocean, you can find corbels with
wave or shell decorations. Are you a wine aficionado? There
are grape corbels that might tickle your fancy.
Corbels are available in several sizes. This allows you to use the same
corbel design throughout a room or throughout your home, should you choose.
You will have many design advantages with a choice of sizes.
Corbels are made from select hardwoods. Wood
has a warmth that is very hard to duplicate, particularly
if you are planning on staining your corbels. Corbels are
sold ready to be painted or stained, and then installed.
Enjoy your corbels. They will make a beautiful
addition to your home’s interior design.
