Fluted columns are a specialty of Melton Classics which offers a wide selection of architecturally authentic fluted columns. These fluted columns are specially crafted with materials of the highest quality and are available in an essentially limitless selection of designs.
The elegant appearance of fluted architectural columns or pillars has been enhanced by the vertical shadowing effect of fluting for centuries, and Melton Classics carries on that tradition with its broad selection of authentically designed fluted column products. Beginning with early Greek columns, fluting was added to columns to create a taller and more elegant appearance in the temples of antiquity. Fluted columns by Melton Classics capture that elegance in a variety of quality materials and beautiful designs to enhance any architectural style.
Two Fluted Columns Styles – Ionic Fluted Columns and Doric Fluted Columns
There are two main fluting styles which are found in columns from antiquity, Ionic and Doric. Ionic fluted columns have 24 semi-circular flutes with a flat surface between the flutes called a fillet. Doric fluted columns are more shallow, and are constructed with 20 flutes that come to a point between each flute.
