Abacus

By on September 6, 2018

An abacus is a flat slab or pillow situated at the top of the capital of a column.

It was made famous when people observed ancient Greek and Roman architecture with columns that create a majestic visual.

Sometimes made of marble when used in luxury home design, it also separates the entablature from the capital.

While it can greatly enhance the authoritative look of a house when built outside the house, more and more homeowners make it a point to put them inside to create a more premium looking interior.

They make great additions to victorian designs.
