Fibrous plaster decorations for doors and corners

Between floral, classic, graphic and geometric motifs, floral volutes, foliage scrolls and more, you can choose from a wide variety of motifs to adorn the areas above doors and the corners of rooms. In castles, museums and even private homes, this ornamentation bears witness to ancestral know-how and a degree of nobility.

The malleability of fibrous plaster makes it possible to create decorations with meticulously crafted motifs to enhance an interior space by immersing it in a classical architectural style.

A overview of décor for doors and corners

Architectural décor for doors and corners

Cnrtl definition: ARCHITECTURE

The Greeks invented the door decorations known as “pediments”. Placed above the entrance to a temple, these pediments typically came in a triangular form adorned with mouldings. This is one of the main characteristics of Greek architecture.

This decoration was later adapted for widespread use in Roman architecture.

After disappearing during the Middle Ages, pediments reappeared during the Renaissance, in their primitive circular or pointed forms.

Andrea Palladio, an Italian Renaissance architect, expanded the use of these architectural elements to private homes. Known for writing The Four Books on Architecture, he was also a great critic of Gothic art.

Synonymous with elegance and refinement

Typical of great, spacious Haussmann flats, these door and corner decorations are a testimonial to ancestral know-how and architectural style.

This ornamentation is a real asset in enhancing interior décor, helping to show off cornice corners and enabling full exploitation of the potential of the areas over doors.

Between floral, geometric and graphic motifs, these architectural elements will reveal all the authentic charm of your interior.

The decorations over doors and in corners are the perfect blend of modernity, design and Art Deco.

Circular or rounded over-door decorations anchor the décor in refinement. These shapes provide not only stability but also movement. They enhance ceiling height and create an illusion of grandeur.

Because resolutely modern shapes can fit in with any architectural style, they can also be combined with leafy details to add a touch of nobility to an interior.

Mashrabiya decorations provide a real architectural edge thanks to their perforated motifs. They can be used to preserve the intimacy of a room whilst creating lighting effects.

These open motifs immerse your interior area in a Middle Eastern style, which is often a vehicle for a warm, social atmosphere.
