The high traditional design of Old World is inspired primarily by classic European style of antiquity. Clearly influenced by the later Renaissance period, which featured enrichment of ornament and outline, Old World reflects the elaborate details of the French and English translation of this significant architectural movement. Roman design standards like columns and pilasters were applied to furniture as well as a full complement of bases, cornices and pediments. The veneer is created by artistic use of cathedral cherry and exotic avodire veneers set off by fine herringbone inlay. Sculptural acanthus leaf carvings adorn the canted pilasters of the case pieces, and the case fronts are highlighted by a carved frame molding in a rhythmic Lamb’s tongue motif.
