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.

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.
