Arched window inspiration…
Arched Window currently in store

Arches are always a good idea…

Of all the architectural elements, ” arches ” seem to have the most enduring appeal; over the years we have bought, sold & kept quite a few arched antique doors & windows…

I often wonder where all the beautiful pieces we sell end up, so its always nice to see them pop up on social media. We will have to wait and see what kind of space these French pointed arched iron windows will help create, hard to imagine they once had panels of lead light and were part of a Gothic church circa 1890’s…

So many possibilities, use decoratively in a garden with mirror or they could be glazed with clear glass or as these images show; simple lead panels make a stunning effect. I shared a few images on our Pinterest board….

I am forever capturing houses with faded facades and decaying gracefully,  if you are lucky enough to be renovating a home locally we have unearthed some rare arched windows… find them here
