Enhances Home Décor Corbel Collection

Loyal customers of the popular architectural décor and detail retailer eagerly anticipate the arrival of their new corbel style additions.

Woburn, MA, November 22, 2007 --(’s design professionals are well aware that today’s homeowners seek to express personal style through what is often the most considerable investment of their lives: their homes. Due to the upsurge of popularity in architectural and decorative details such as wood corbels, the company continues to seek out and feature the very latest for their available inventory. Recent autumn additions to the corbel collection feature designs that have been imagined in line with their most popular existing styles and a large focus on customer feedback.

For the uninitiated, corbels are architectural elements that were originally designed for means of utility and support, frequently spotted alongside a structural element as means of reinforcement. Despite what could be considered a restriction in regards to their applications, however, many homeowners have become enamored with the look produced by corbels and a tendency to apply them throughout the home as a design element has taken hold. Under the kitchen counter, adorning the fireplace mantels, inside doorways and even on home exteriors - the demand for corbels has recently heated up from a simmer to a rolling boil.

“Of all the architectural products featured on our website, our collection of corbels has proven to generate unsurpassed interest and passion among our clients,” says Julia Delaney, one of’s designers. “The opportunity to customize the look and feel of their home, the opportunity to customize a sense of persona in their home, is made readily available to them through these corbels. And because they create such a dramatic difference the fact that they are so easy to install make these affordable design elements a no-brainer.”

The website features a wide selection of corbels in different shapes, sizes and motifs and the majority of styles offer several wood types to choose from. “The variety of our corbels collection practically guarantees that anyone, even homeowners with the most finicky tastes, will find a corbel that speaks to them,” Julia remarked.

The recent popularity of wood carvings such as corbels is best understood by witnessing their visual impact firsthand. Once installation is complete corbels have the power to strengthen the look and feel of any room in the home. “Corbels prove themselves to be pretty powerful tools when it comes to transforming the character of a room. They work in terms of the whole, by giving the room’s interior a sense of presence, while at the same time making an artistic statement on their own,” explains Jamie Meehan, a product specialist. “Corbels are the finishing touch. They give a timeless and polished look to a space, just like a pair of classic pearl earrings can pull together any wardrobe.”

The website is unique; not only because of the wide selection of corbels showcased, but also because each of the wood corbels offered are carved by the hands of skilled artisans. This detail in itself, distinguishes these corbels as examples of art in one of its most traditional forms. In an age where mechanized production is commonplace, it is inherently refreshing to find beautiful, well-made products that have been the focus of an artist’s attention and formed from human hands.

“There is a common misconception that hand carved corbels are inferior to those carved by machine. Corbels carved by machine are marketed toward the consumer under the pretense that any two corbels of the same style are identical in shape, size and characteristics of its carving, making them superior to their hand carved counterparts,” explains Julia. “In reality, any two of our hand carved corbels are also exactly the same in regards to their shape and size. However, because these corbels are carved by human hands, the carvings do differ slightly from each other, since it is impossible to consistently replicate a human experience.”

While slight variations result in corbels that are truly unique examples of art, it is the same variations that competitors often attempt to convey as “flaws”. design professionals adamantly disagree with this notion: “When carved by human hands, the attention to detail given to the corbel, an artist’s individual skill and inspiration is evident in each and every piece. The pride in craftsmanship and the beauty of the finished product practically transcends the wood it was carved from.”
