Often referred to as the point of origin for the Renaissance; Florence, Italy came alive with art and architecture in the 14th century. Il Duomo and Giotto's Bell Tower matchlessly stand in the city's center, surrounded by architectural works of genius, such as Basilica di Santa Maria Novella and Basilica di San Lorenzo. Differing greatly from the Baroque era which followed after, the Renaissance focused on symmetry, incorporating a great deal of geometric shapes and principles throughout design. Many times, architectural inspiration came from the ancient Greeks and Romans, who had produced large amounts of ornate pillars and columns. For that reason you will see much of the same in Renaissance architecture. The Florence Bar Corbel seeks to recapture the essence of the Renaissance design by focusing on clean symmetry and proportion. Though ideal for supporting a bar top, this corbel makes itself at home in many applications, and will bring a hint of the Renaissance to your cabinetry.

 

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.
