What are Fluted Architectural Columns?
Fluted architectural columns have long vertical hollow grooves along the column or pilaster. Traditionally, the flutes run along the entire height of the column, however, this can be adjusted to have the flutes however long you aesthetically please. Fluted columns are iconic from classic Greek and Roman architecture, but offer an elegant statement to any modern home or building. The earliest columns found in Greece were made from tree trunks and grooves were created when the bark was stripped from the trunk. Column fluting continued when stone and marble materials started being introduced in architecture, and continues to be popular in modern design too, creating an elegant decorative feature. Fluting columns with flutes one after the other adds dimension and overall rhythm to a plain architectural column. Flutes traditionally made buildings look more purposeful and important, however nowadays fluted architectural columns create a bold, aesthetically pleasing statement as well as providing structural support.
