Decorative Column Covers and Faux Wood Post Wraps

Tree Bark Column Cover

If you’re an architect or interior designer looking to improve a commercial space , you’ve likely run into obtrusive columns or posts. They block site lines, pose troubling configuration issues, and often look downright ugly. Too bad they can’t just be torn down, right? Seeing as how columns provide the support that keeps buildings upright, this probably isn’t a good idea in most cases. That’s where a decorative column cover or a nice faux wood post wrap comes in handy.

Column Covers and Faux Wood Post Wraps Column covers and wraps come in all different shapes and sizes, for both indoor and outdoor decoration. Most obvious are the colonial style or parthenon-esque columns that have graced college and government building foyers for centuries. Less obvious is a simple wood texture, like that which adorns the columns of the JW Terrill lobby crafted by St. Louis Woodworks. Or a basic metal wrap, more durable for outdoors, like the minimalist aluminum columns designed for the AtlantiCare Medical Center by Bamco, Inc. Even less obvious are silk or artificial trees used as decorative column covers.

Concealing Cell Phone Towers with Silk Trees

Cell Phone Tower Tree Concealing cell phone towers is often a compromise to an unwanted problem. No one wants a cell phone tower in their neighborhood, known as they are for bringing masses of steel to otherwise quaint neighborhoods, reducing home values, dosing people with unhealthy levels of radiation (some say), and inciting gridlock at zoning boards all over the country. The improvement of cell phone coverage, for whatever reason, does not make up for these drawbacks in most people's eyes.
