LES CORBEAUX DECORATIFS
The good news is that corbels are wonderfully decorative, especially when they are old and weathered and take on the wonderful patina of time and use. The bad news is undeniably that to be reused and repurposed they have to have been taken from some fabulous old structure which has been almost certainly replaced by something new and soulless. So we have a catch twenty two here.
However this is not the subject of this post, but rather the beauty and many functions of corbels.
corbels as lighting
corbels as shelving
corbels as objets d'art
and most strikingly,
corbels as furniture
