Ultimate Classic Style Wall Decoration
Love this panel. This is possible using Decorators Supply composition ornament.
Decorators Supply is widely recognized with the most extensive, authentic and finely crafted carving ornaments in the industry. Their library exceeds over 16,000 ornaments spanning all major periods and styles.
From these carvings they manufacture beautifully detailed composition (“compo”) reproductions, utilizing a formula comprised of all natural ingredients. This formula dates back hundreds of years. In fact the famous English architect Robert Adams (for whom the Adams Style is named) utilized composition ornaments on many of his furniture pieces back in the mid – 1700’s, and compo ornaments appear in the collections of major museums, including the Winterthur, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts.
Being comprised of all natural ingredients, their ornaments are best when applied within a few weeks of receipt while still fresh & pliable.
