The Fluted Pedestal’s design was inspired by ancient Greek and Roman fluted columns. The Greeks probably started carving flutes in their columns because their earliest columns were made out of wooden tree trunks, and when the builders shaved the bark off the trunks it left these vertical gouges. When they began to build stone temples, they copied the gouges from the wood because it made the columns look skinnier and taller and more elegant. Fluting the columns, one flute after another, also gave the columns and the whole building a feeling of rhythm, which architects working in ancient Greece thought was an important aspect of a temple. This exquisite pedestal is offered in a variety of finishes and makes an exceptional plinth for displaying a prized objet d’art. Available in multiple sizes, it also makes a great plant stand. The Fluted Pedestal was designed by Shah Gilani, ASFD. Custom sizing is available.
