We have a range of both plain and fluted columns and pilasters in both scagliola and plaster. Our columns can be any height or style required and include an entasis (natural taper), based on the height of the column or pilaster.

Our columns can be supplied in halves if necessary to clad steel or concrete support stanchions to which they can be securely fixed. Any of our columns, capitals and bases can be custom-made to any specific design just find out more about our design services.

Columns are vertical elements, usually a rounded shaft with a capital and a base, which in most cases serves as a support usually beams or arches. A column may also be non-structural, used for a decorative purpose or as a freestanding monument (pedestals).

In the field of architectural design a column is used for decoration as well as support. Columns may be rectangular, circular, or polygonal in shape; they may taper toward the top (entasis) or be of uniform diameter if required. An engaged, attached, or embedded column is one that is built into a wall and protrudes only partially from it; this type of column is purely decorative and known as a pilaster. Modern columns are simply designed to be made of iron, steel, or concrete and are simply designed.
