The Narrow Chesapeake Corbel does not easily resign itself to one design style alone, though many of its characteristics can compare to the Art Deco surge of the 1920s and 30s. With the flapper culture furnishing and the emphasis on the arts increasing, Europe introduced America to a design that was decorative yet functional and referred to as Art Deco. Within the States the architectural pillar of this style is the spire on the Chrysler Building (built 1928-1930). The tiered arches and triangles of the skyscraper resemble those of the corbel, while the classic bracket shape gives the piece a sense of simplicity.

Corbels create instant beauty and sophistication in any space. In practical uses, they provide support for countertops, shelves, and more, while elegantly transforming the look of your home. Our wood corbels showcase the grain and color of wood, resembling beautiful pieces of art.  Furthermore, the selection between intricately carved or simply designed corbels can dramatically alter the atmosphere of a room. Osborne Wood Products produces our world-class corbels in many different styles, materials, and sizes to meet your design needs. 

 

When placing corbels beneath a countertop, focus on the depth of the corbel. Corbels supporting a countertop should measure at least ½ of the overhang’s depth. However, these corbels gain visual appeal with larger dimensions. Corbels that measure ⅔ or ¾ of the overhang’s depth provide both better looks and extra support. For example, a countertop with a 12 inch overhang requires supporting corbels that are at least 6 inches deep, but feel free to use 8 inch or 9 inch corbels to enhance the countertop’s appearance.

 

Corbels used to brace shelves must measure at least ⅔ of the shelf’s depth in order to properly support the shelf. However, it is recommended to support a shelf with corbels measuring ¾ of the shelf’s depth, as this creates better support and visual appeal. For example, a shelf that is 12 inches deep requires supporting corbels that are at least 8 inches deep, but 9 inch corbels provide better looks and support.
