Fooling the Eye for Real Effects

Tuscan-inspired design never left home fashion, it just continues to express its timeless decorative message through modern materials.  While we often receive inquiries about using Tableaux® faux wrought iron for Juliette balconies, we don’t often get a finished project photo of one.  Thanks to Mike Vikesland of Embellish design in Austin, TX for this simply elegant installation of Tableaux.

To create your own Juliette balcony, you can order the Tableaux as one length similar to what you see here, adding your own decorative touches on the vertical bars, if you wish.  We’ve seen other equally creative faux balconies with the vertical bars attached over the rail bars.

 Remember, Tableaux is a decorative wrought iron product, not a structural one. So be sure you’re your balcony railing is never used.  We also recommend that Tableaux never be specified for balustrades or railings of any kind where personal safety is at issue.  There are so many delightful, ornamental applications for faux wrought iron that give you the look and feel of real iron.  To learn more about how to order your Juliette balcony, give us a call or email us from this website.

Niches are really popular architectural features these days. Turns out these focal point wall recesses are for the purpose of highlighting something ornamental such as a sculpture, mirror, painting or.…a Tableaux®.  Tableaux is often the perfect answer to fill large niches within the home for the same reasons why Tableaux faux wrought iron works everywhere else in the home.

You select the design that best reflects your own decorative taste from our library of designs and then we make the pieces in your preferred iron finish color to fit the size you need, whether it is an oblong, square, rectangle, arch or circle.

Remember, with Tableaux, you don’t need to know how to pronounce it to order it. We’re here to assist all our dealers to make sure you have the elegance of wrought iron just the way you want it.

Enjoy this photo provided by Spring, Texas dealer Leanne Donelson.  These niches are located on a large two story wall needing dominant ornamentation. Leave it to Leanne to come up with the perfect solution!

True Love + Tableaux

Kristy_Dexter_StandingWe already know that Tableaux’s beautiful designs inspire romance though we were happy to hear that romance led directly to Tableaux. Our new dealer in Wall, TX, Kristy Dexter shared her pathway to Tableaux with us and it was so inspiring, we want to share it with you.

Kristy and her husband Jason, who is of Portuguese descent, spent their honeymoon in the island of Medeira. In this Old World city, Kristy took in the beauty of wrought iron on the buildings and homes that provided the inspiration for their own new home.

For years, Kristy looked for a product that she could incorporate the look and feel of those wrought iron designs she saw in Madeira  -  without the weight or cost.

After finding faux iron, she shared “my heart literally stopped! I knew I wanted this product and wanted to sell this product!! I just cannot wait to visit homes and bring the beauty and light with Tableaux® into them. I am just thrilled beyond belief to share this product!”

Kristy’s business is aptly named Janela Bela, Portuguese for ‘beautiful window’.

Creating Eclectic Charm with Tableaux

It’s not often we get to peek inside a studio of a designer, but in this case Lorraine White of Plan It Home (www.planithome.net ) located in charming Henderson, Texas shared her showroom with us.

Her eclectic collection of upholstery, furniture, draperies, plantation shutters and window coverings includes an arresting g piece of Tableaux® faux iron. She chose “Orleans” Tableaux® design to mount in an old cathedral window frame. We love the melding of the contemporary wrought iron with the antique frame. Lorraine acknowledges that her Tableaux® window is a show-stopper – the statement piece that captives her browsers and clients.

The cathedral window can use used as a room divider, headboard, wall décor or as a specially-crafted window. Use this highly innovative idea to imagine for designing with the look and feel of traditional wrought iron in your contemporary homes and businesses. Tableaux offers endless possibilities for creative expression. Take a tip from Lorraine and if you are passing through Texas, you’ll love Henderson!
