Antique skirting is perfect for a period style room.
From the 16th century, 5 distinct orders were recognized whose origins come from Ancient Greece the column consists of the base, the shaft and the capital with the horizontal structure supported on the columns called the entablature. The entablature consists of architrave, frieze and cornice all separated from each other using mouldings. The base consists of the stylobate and the plinth and mouldings with profiles e.g. the convex torus and the concave scotia, terms still used nowadays for skirting board profiles.
