Legacy of Antique Doors

 

"An antique is anything old with class." ~ John Bartlett

Antique doors are entrances narrating the stories of the older times and exuding class. They are associated with historical significance and exhibit the craftsmanship of the bygone era. These older doors are decorated with detailed carvings, ceremonial patterns, representing the country's Vedic and Puranic heritage. Traditional silhouettes in categories of flora, geometric and religious patterns (depiction of deities) can be found in house door designs, including front door (main door), double door and wooden door.


The antique doors are not only functional, but they also add to the overall visual appeal of the décor. They can play a variety of roles, such as giving character to the organization of the space through functional entrances or as a piece of décor.  Because of their solid construction and long lifespan, they add to the aesthetic appeal of traditional or contemporary décor settings. They can sometimes serve as a window into the nostalgia of the past. They give the living areas a sense of timelessness and a touch of history. Onlookers are drawn to these doors, which inspire discussions about their historical significance and magnificent beauty.
