Columns are essential elements of many classical and classical-inspired buildings, and the entablature is the crowning glory. Consisting of the architrave, the frieze, and the cornice, a building’s entablature is every bit as stunning as its grand columns. Cornice adds aesthetic appeal to a building’s entablature, and the frieze is often enhanced with bas relief carvings of scenes, figures, or abstract designs.
Whether you are looking for a classical entablature or want to bend the rules a little, Stromberg can create an unforgettable masterpiece just for you. Constructing authentic classical entablatures involves following a set of rigid rules with respect to the size of each subdivision and the elements that should be incorporated into the entablature’s design. We have extensive knowledge of all the major classical orders, including Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian, and we can craft columns and entablatures that comply with each order’s specifications. Stromberg also crafts custom entablatures, so you’re free to use your imagination to develop a completely unique entablature that will really turn some heads.
