Manors and Castles

We cannot imagine classical mansions without mouldings, rosettes, frames, nor other decorative elements. These were very often gilded and patinated. Also in this aspect, the quality and the finish are of great importance.

And for a very nice project, Furniture & Artcrafts was invited to a wonderful manoir in the Walloon area of Belgium where we delivered and installed about 200m of gilded wall mouldings and gilded the existing ceiling moulding, ceiling rose and door frames.

Gilding truly attracts light and brings sunshine into a room. It complements every colour and will emphasize it and make it more present and even make it stand out. And certainly on this very sumptuous and rich blue walls. For this client, we developed a specific rusty and worn-out patina on rich red gesso basis.

This project was one of the main projects that delivered us, the coveted title of “Certified craftsman” by the Belgian government.
