Perfect for adding height, light, depth, or detail, interior trim products, like many of their exterior counterparts, are getting a materials makeover. Though many hardwood products are still available in a range of species, more trim pieces are being made from PVC and polyurethane. In addition to offering the detail and workability of wood accents, these pieces are lighter than wood, resist rotting, and are often available in longer lengths than wood can accommodate.
NMC. Based on the architectural ideal of essentialism, the Essenza interior trim collection helps define spaces by showcasing proportions, perspectives, and symmetries with the use of light. A wide range of options allows light to penetrate into corners, illuminate changes in elevation, or highlight the edge of a false ceiling. The microcellular foam material contains no formaldehyde or PVC. Each piece is primed for painting, is water-resistant, and creates a sophisticated, modern aesthetic. 866.349.4662. www.nmcdecousa.com.
Contact Lumber Co. Now available in khaya (African mahogany, shown), natural wood-wrapped moldings come in 14- and 16-foot lengths (18-foot upon request) and can be prefinished with a stain, top coat, or eco-friendly UV cure. The dimensionally stable, finger-jointed substrate is wrapped in defect-free veneer with color uniformity over the full length. Request any profile up to 10 inches wide. 800.547.1038. www.contactlumber.com.
Focal Point Architectural. For an easy way to achieve the look of a stained or finished medallion, try the Focal Finish line. Ten hand-applied artistic finishes are now available on more than 30 medallion styles. Finishes, ranging from gilded brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze to imperial gold and gilded mahogany (shown), are designed to complement popular lighting fixtures. Installation of the maker's polyurethane medallions and moldings requires no finish nailing; all fasteners are hidden. 800.662.5550. www.focalpointproducts.com.
White River. Suitable for classical and Craftsman decor, the manufacturer introduces scrolled and Mission corbels. Featuring deep fluting and a finishing palmette, the scrolled corbels (shown) offer Old World embellishment in heights ranging from 7 inches to 26 inches. For a simple, masculine design, five sizes of Mission corbels offer elegant millwork and curves without being overly ornamental. Both designs are available in American maple or cherry; scrolled corbels also come in lindenwood. 800.558.0119. www.mouldings.com.
Bendix Architectural Products. Hand-carved from lindenwood, American maple, cherry, or red oak, the Acorn decorative center displays four groups of three acorns. Ideal for adding detail to walls, panels, doors, or cabinetry, the acorn center comes in three sizes in stain-grade woods. 800.526.0240. www.bendixarchitectural.com
Windsor Mill. Take the guesswork out of matching crown moldings, casings, and base molds with the whole-room approach of the Moldings Collection. With insight from historical millwork expert Brent Hull, the maker developed four styles appropriate for today's homes. The styles include classical colonial, Greek revival, classical Craftsman, and colonial revival. Made of high-quality, finger-jointed, triple-painted wood, the designs within each style are intended to mix and match with historical accuracy. 707.838.7101. www.windsorone.com.
