THE CLASSIC ARCH – Arch architectural details provide visual impact to interior and exterior design. It was not until the time of the Etruscans (Tuscany) that the arch was widely used in public architecture. Borrowing from the Etruscans in northern Italy, the Romans advanced the development of the arch. By combining arch building techniques from earlier civilizations, the Romans invented the idea of setting an arch on top of two tall columns to span a walkway.
Over the centuries, the arch became a classic architectural form that appears repeatedly in casual, as well as formal wall decor. The shape is classic and always adds drama to the setting in which it is found.
In wall decor, the arched shape is most commonly found in mirrors, iron wall art, wall sculpture and the subject of fine art oils and watercolors.
While wrought iron has played a significant role in the architecture of Europe for centuries, the United States is only now beginning to appreciate the significant advantages of this beautiful and practical material as a preferred building and decorating product. Wrought iron is a durable metal, made out of mild steel that can be adapted to any style, shape, or pattern, and its functional applications are limitless. Wall decorating accessories made from iron give a home instant stylish design abundant in bold imagery and color.
Framed art, wall tapestry and mirrors accented by iron wall decor add interest and texture to a home’s decor. The arched shape in wall decor compliments arched widows and makes casual living areas warm, stylish and beautifully designed.

With the addition of the arched La Bella wall decor, the arched windows appear even more pronounced.
