Surrounded by the high rises of midtown Manhattan, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) confidently sits on 53rd St., between 5th and 6th avenue. While its collections include drawings, film, sculpture, design plans, photography and more, the MoMA also offers a variety of educational opportunities for those who wish to learn more about modern art and architecture. The contemporary design of the museum includes a glass wall that looks out on to a marble courtyard littered with sculptures and reflecting pools. Though New York has always been an eclectic skyline spanning from the Woolworth Building (Neo-Gothic) to the Guggenheim (Modern), design has always been strong and unique. This same spirit has created the shape of our New York Contemporary Bracket. This simple corbel integrates the strength, unique contemporary design, and confidence that many sites in New York such as the MoMA exhibit. With a simple ogee curve profile, the substantial five and a half inch width makes this bracket ideal for large kitchen hoods, or numerous applications underneath a granite countertop.

Corbels for countertops and shelves can create instant beauty and sophistication. Many customers who have installed our corbels for their countertops or shelves are amazed at how elegantly they can transform the look of their home. Wood corbels are like beautiful art that can showcase the grain and color of wood to its best advantage. And the selection of intricately carved or simpler wood designs can dramatically alter the appearance and feel of a room.  Corbels make a significant artistic statement and often serve as the room’s focal point.

If you intend to place corbels beneath a countertop, the key dimension you are focused on is the depth of the corbel. Corbels to be used under a countertop should be at least 1/2 of the depth of the overhang which it will support, and look even better when they are 2/3 or ¾ of the depth of the overhang. For example, a countertop with an overhang of 12 inches requires supporting corbels that are at least 6 inches deep. Using 8 or 9 inch corbels provides extra support and makes the corbels a bit more visually appealing.

Corbels used to brace shelves must be at least 2/3 of the depth of the shelf which they will support, since the corbel will be the shelf’s sole means of support. It is preferable to have the corbel be 3/4 of the depth of the overhang, for better support and visual appeal.  For example, a shelf that is 12 inches deep will require supporting corbels that are at least 8 inches deep, but corbels that are at least 9 inches deep provide better support and visual appeal.
