Sea Island Trellis takes painted fretwork motifs from Neo-Classical English and Scandinavian manor houses and reinterprets them in a grand American style. This versatile suite is made up of coordinating panel, trellis, fan and a border that can be arranged in various ways to create trompe l’oeil architecture. The full-scale panels feature open Chinoiserie latticework and terminate in Palladian arches; the trellis is adorned with rosettes that anchor the drafting in detail. The narrow decorative border is especially flexible, adaptable to both vertical and horizontal applications. Used as a column, the border serves to frame each panel elevation; as a moulding strip, it gives the trellis a finished edge. Assembled straight across the bottom of the panels, this element also creates a lacy grillework effect.
