Cornices with Crown Molding

I recently completed a commercial job for a local company with offices on the campus of Waynesburg University. The job included upholstered cornices for a reception area and offices, wood blinds, and a wall of draperies in a teleconferencing suite.

The reception area cornice features contrasting banding in an interwoven pattern. Since the lining side shows in the hallway where clients enter the office, the customer requested that I put the name of the company on the back side of the cornice. I applied the company name and logo directly to the cornice lining using fusible applique.....

I love the way the office cornices turned out. They have crown molding and dentil trim, custom stained to match the cherry wood furniture in the offices.


 (Cornices designed by Leslie Fehling, fabricated by Custom Occasionals)

The arched bottom is edged with contrasting dark brown welt cord. 11/16" cut pyramid upholstery nails follow the arch and form a simple center design that is the focal point of the window treatment.



In the teleconferencing room, the client requested drapery panels to serve as a background for videotaping. The heavy velour fabric of the panels was custom dyed to coordinate with the company's logo and mounted to Kirsch Architrac rodding. The panel weighed almost 70 pounds. The white square you see hanging in front of the draperies is a sign that I fabricated with the client's logo and company name on it. I have blanked it out for privacy reasons. The sign is hung with thin wire that is invisible against the blue background. The company logo was positioned so that it appears just above the person's head who is being
videotaped............................... ....................... ......................... ....... .........

My customer was delighted with the changes in his office space after the window treatments were installed. It was amazing what a difference it has made. This start-up company no longer looks like they just moved into their offices.

  3. I love adding crown molding to cornices, it makes such an impact and adds to the architectural detail (especially if there is little to none to start with) to the room.
