One of the most commonly displayed plants in architecture; the acanthus leaf is rooted in Greek design, usually seen adorning Corinthian pillars. Greek architecture saw such prolific use of the acanthus leaf because it was such a plentiful plant in that region.

 

The acanthus leaf has taken up a place in architecture which signifies elegance and sophistication. During the Medieval and Renaissance periods, sculptors and wood carvers alike made frequent use of this regal imagery.

 

While acanthus leaves have been essential to design throughout the ages, corbels are even more integral to architectural support, and have been used for millennia to add support to impressive structures. This strong yet delicate corbel, with its open back, brings a touch of the nouveau to such a classic piece.

Classic Modified Bar Corbel

Provide the Perfect Support for Your Bar

 

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.
